love this product

My company work faster and with less admin

Pros

My involvement so distant has been great. Once I had set it all up and learned approximately the program I was able to adjust it to our needs very effectively.

Cons

As it were thing I'm lost is plausibility to open modern work arrange specifically from the one which I fair did and not through primary menu. Minor thing but would spare few seconds of my time

Simple, effective solution.

Manuonline has worked out very well for us. We've had a couple of bespoke changes which have been completed in a very timely and cost effective manner. The Help menus are very comprehensive and support very reactive if required.
I'd like the opportunity to hook up with other users to see how they use they system and determine if there's any other functionality we should consider to ensure we're getting maximum use out of it. I've always found that useful with previous systems I've used.

Pros

Manuonline was very intuitive to use. It had all of the functionality we required as we simplified the business. It has multi-currency, multi-location functionality and simple Excel reporting features. Going to a SaaS solution was much simpler and gave us more flexibility. We predominantly use it for stock, sales & purchase order processing which it handles more than adequately. It was a very competitively priced solution with knowledgeable founders & great support.

Cons

A little concerned initially as installation and set-up seemed a little vague, however soon discovered it was very simple and a sufficient trial period confirmed my decision.
Also felt reporting was limited as I'd been used to writing my own bespoke from SQL via Crystal, but soon realised all the data can be outputted to Excel to manipulate and saved as standard reports if required.

A much better option to use this and Xero than Sage

Great, the guys are all easy to deal with and on the whole they will always understand what we are trying to get the system to do and they will get it there, as i have said the only down side is that some of the more basic things like changing delivery note appearance or other printouts is not really there at the moment.

Pros

The click and go setup works well and it wasn't all that complicated to get our heads round the basics, it was pretty much out the box setup for us, just a few hours of tinkering from the programmers at Manu.

Cons

There is not much you can change, the reports and printouts are all set in stone unless you want to pay for the Manu guys to adjust them, they do a great job but I would prefer to be able to make changes to these sort of things myself, also the user interface is great on the whole but it again is not really adjustable to make it more customised, we don't use half of the functions so it would be nice to be able to hide them completely and make the pages less cluttered.

Hi Mark,

Thank you for reviewing our service. We appreciate it and we will always strive to apply the feedback received in order to deliver the best value to all Manu Online customers.

We actually want to share some good news with you. There is an easy way to actually hide any modules you may not require. You can find that in ADMIN > Licensing. There you can then untick any of the boxes specific to the modules you are not using. I hope this helps!

Thank you again for choosing Manu Online!

Game Changer

From the beginning, we have had no issues with Manu Online. It integrated easily into what we were previously doing and it’s connection with Xero enables us to track invoices from their initial purchase orders right through to the final invoice.

Pros

Manu Online enables us to run more efficiently as a business. Knowing that all of our sales and purchase orders are on one system and are linked to our inventory is invaluable. It has changed the way we work as a business and was easy to set up and implement.

Cons

Sometimes the reporting can be a bit hit and miss but on the second attempt everything usually works fine!

Response from Manu Online

Hi Josh,

Thank you very much for the feedback. We appreciate it as we will always strive to deliver the best possible value for all our customers.

In regards to the reporting side we are sorry to hear if there are times when you are experiencing technical issues. We can investigate that for you in order to understand if there is an internal problem.

Again, thank you for choosing Manu Online!

Good for start up businesses

As with any system the more you use it the easier it gets but you have to look for information and it can be a pain to track it down; I do find the Help Section is fairly limited.

Pros

Clear menu and menu paths make navigating Manu a joy after using SAP. On line training with Manu staff is very good.

Cons

Can be unforgiving once an item is despatched and serial numbers etc require updating. The answer always seem to be raise a customer return and start again.
Information can often be hidden away on back pages and missing a tick in a box can lead to complications further down the production and manufacturing process.

Response from Manu Online

Hi Kyla,
Thank you very much for the feedback. We are constantly working on improving the system therefore your feedback is highly important. We are working at the moment on reveling some of the information that may've been a bit hidden in the software. For instance, we have moved the Production planner on the main Production dashboard. We will also flag some of the details raised regarding dispatching and serial numbers. Again, thank you very much.
