It is no doubt that the business world is mesmerized with the facilities that ERP programs that it brings on to the table. But one disadvantage about the availability of a great number of programs is that you might be confused on what you should go for. Hence, the purpose of this comparison is not to put down a product but to carry out a simple comparison that will help you to choose the best solution.
Our two competitors are the Microsoft dynamics AX and the Net suite. There are many parameters to carry out this comparison. We can start off with the customer reviews, because after all, it is the opinions of the people who are using them is what matters the most.
A research done by a reputed company has given a score of 9.2 to the Netsuite partner Singapore and a score of 8.6 to the Microsoft dynamics AX. This is solely carried out under the opinions of the experts who are completely independent, but they’re not the customers. When it comes to the customer acclamation, the Net suite has been able to get a 4.0 rating with a majority of 5-star ratings as twice as the AX, which is rated at a 3.7 score. As you can see, there is a very clear gap between them.
The purpose of the Microsoft dynamics AX is merely to provide you services to manage sales and sales relate matters whereas the other option offers you a complete set of management features that allows you decide on situation given its real time highlighting of the statistics. One would say that this is option is as good as the Sage 300 reseller which could be named as a good substitute for the Net Suit.
When it comes to the pricing plans of the two solutions, the Microsoft Dynamics is not really the most cost effective option. How so? It has different packages, the ones that you can’t customize. For instance, let’s say that you only need 4 modules out of the 10 in the package; you’re going to have to pay for the 10. But Net suite doesn’t loot you like that. It is only available on quote basis, which allows you to customize it, as you need including only the modules that you seek.
As it was mentioned earlies, the AX software only helps you with one particular area. But here are few of the areas that the Net suite will take care for you.
- Fixed asset management
- Payment management
- Catalogue control
- Demand planning
- Vendor management
- Billing and invoicing
Now that you have a good idea on these two options, it will not be so hard for you to decide on what works for you the best.
