A lot of functionality for a moderate investment

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Overall, we've had a very good experience with this software.

Vorteile:

Our primary use is for inventory management and stock requisitioning. The system works very well for those functions and has vastly improved our inventory audits. At the time we purchased (2010), web-based software was just becoming popular and was a huge plus.

Nachteile:

We've been using it for so long now (12 years) that its use is second nature so it is hard to think of a specific "con." I would say at this point in time, one could be that there is not yet have a mobile app. Since the software is used primarily by our distribution team that works from the field, a mobile app that allows them to create and submit stock requisitions would be ideal and further streamline our efficiencies.

Bellwether Purchasing Management Software

5,0 vor 8 Monaten

Kommentare: Overall I would highly recommend Bellwether to anyone looking to keep track of their purchasing and inventory. I'm very glad we selected Bellwether. They work with us when we ask it they can add any features to fit our needs. Customer service is excellent; they always answer right away and have solved every problem we've ever came across.

Vorteile:

Bellwether is super easy to use. I was given the task of finding a way to track our company's expenses on the indirect items that are bought throughout the company. Choosing Bellwether was one of the smartest decisions I have made. The software makes managing the companies purchasing and creating bills in Quickbooks very simple.

Nachteile:

One feature I would like added, when creating a purchase order, is a check box that could be selected that indicates the order has already been received. We have a lot of purchases that happen at the local hardware where the items are received immediately after purchase. If there was a check box on the purchase order that said "Received" you could select that and take one step off of the process.

David, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Bellwether's BPM solution. Our goal was to make BPM as user friendly as possible and easy to adopt for organizations like yours. It's great to hear you are finding it easy to use. Additionally, Thank you for your feature suggestion. We will review that and possibly add this in a future update! We are always looking to flesh out our products and suggestions like yours are paramount.

Daily Use

3,0 vor 6 Monaten

Vorteile:

This program is fairly easy to use and does well with our daily operation.

Nachteile:

When the PO goes past 15 lines, it is very slow.There is no warning when a duplicate number is added to a PO.When an item is received, sometimes the PO closes completely even though there is still an unreceived item left.

Hi Amad, Thank you for your review. If you can let us know what product you're using (EPMX or BPM) and what your company name is, we can look into the issues that you're having with PO's. Thanks!

Great Software for Vendor, PO and Requisition Tracking, among other features.

4,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Very Good.

Vorteile:

Bellwether is simple to navigate and it does not require a huge effort do get up and running. The catalog updates itself as orders are placed, so that frequently ordered items are easy to re-order. It is a great tool to track receiving and account for items that are to be split up among multiple properties. We replaced our archaic system of generating POs through an excel spreadsheet and the results we are seeing are impressive. It is super easy to track a purchase all the way to receipt. The implementation process was a breeze and the training sessions as well as online tutorials that are provided are very helpful. Our implementation manager (Regina) was amazing at responding to emails and answering any questions we had.

Nachteile:

There is a bit of a learning curve when using "filters" and reporting could be a little more user-friendly, but overall, it is exactly what we were looking for. Is is worth adding that between the documentation (user guide) we were given, as well as the online tutorials provided, it is rare that we find ourselves in a situation where we are unable to find an answer to a question that came-up while using Bellwether. The system does everything we need and we are pleased.

Easy and cost effective for small business

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: This software has been a real eye opener into spending habits and getting everyone to use a PO for tracking has helped us get control of our spending.

Vorteile:

It was easy to implement and going forward easy to upload the annual budget so we can track spending. The dashboard is great for management who want to be hands off - yet need quick visibility into spending.

Nachteile:

This is a basic system and we don't fully utilize all it has to offer so there is nothing additional we need to run this side of the business.

Harbor Bridge Project Bellwether Review

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Great! We previously used excel to for requisitioning which would need to be printed, manually signed by approver, scanned and then emailed directly to Procurement. PO's would be in an excel as well, then saved to PDF and emailed to Vendors. This cuts down on a lot of miscommunication and "lost" req's/PO's

Vorteile:

The ease for field team members to submit requisitions, on multiple devices. The ability to turn a requisition into a PO and transfer the data seamlessly. The ability to see the status of the Req's and PO's easily and quickly.

Nachteile:

The amount of clicks it requires to search something - option to short key would be great! Also, when multiple PO's are approved they come together in one PDF, even if they are for several different vendors and they have to manually be separated through adobe.

This was a good choice for our company

Kommentare: Very good experience with Bellwether, and the support has been effective and timely. The cost of the system kept me in budget.

Vorteile:

The software is intuitive, and training employees was very easy. The set up and implementation process was very straight forward, and the Bellwether team very supportive. The automatic approval process from email is helpful, and means you don't have to log in to approve requisitions.

Nachteile:

The report writer is chunky, and finding the right fields can be a challenge

This product fit our needs well both from capability and price point perspectives

4,0 vor 8 Jahren

Kommentare: Our organization was looking for a purchasing software package to replace an antiquated and cumbersome excel routine. After viewing a number of available packages at various price points we felt that ePMX would best meet our needs. Our set up included the institution of a part numbering system for repetitive needs and inventory management purposes. We also needed a custom bridge to output from the invoice system in ePMX to another acct'g system we use.
Working with ePMX to understand master file setup was easy. Setting up each module took some time but there were no real hitches. Loading data into ePMX went very smoothly. Overall the implementation was done within our time frame. I found ePMX trainers responsive and knowledgeable.
The custom bridge we needed worked properly with just a slight bit of tweaking up front.
I feel one negative was the length of time it took to develop a punchout for one of our large vendors. This was not just an ePMX issue but also involved that vendor's input. But I felt as though ePMX should have been driving this harder when things got bogged down.
Overall I would recommend ePMX to anyone looking for a package with the advertised features. Reporting is easy and quick. Finding information is easy and quick. We are able to manage our purchases and inventory much more effectively using ePMX.

Vendor and Purchase tracking just got easier!

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Bellwether software has provided the perspective and tracking needed to define and make purchasing decisions quickly with neccessary accountability.

Vorteile:

The software is simple to navigate with user-definable fields. The catalog function allows tracking various vendor pricing and the Requisition/Purchase Order functions allow approval tracking as well as quick reordering without building from scratch.

Nachteile:

Budget tracking views and departmental information can be difficult for the first few purchase entries but that simplifies after regular use.

Vorteile:

We order from the same vendors most of the time, and bellwether stores all of their information for us so it only takes me a couple minutes to request many items.

I would like to be able to see what other requisitions have been made by people at my company, rather than just my own requisitions.

Awesome Program

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: This software has been a solid addition to our company. It has taken the place of two to three other programs I was using for various reasons. The customer support has been top notch. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars on features & functionality is because of the inventory nod that is still in development. Once they have added more features to it I would change my 4 to 5 stars with ease.

Early Assessment

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: Easy to create PO's once the vendors and items have been created in the program. We are not using the inventory option for now but will review once we've added enough vendors and items.

Vorteile:

We are primarily using the software for purchasing and it has been running smoothly. We have only been using the program for 4 months but we are already building our vendor list and purchasing data that will help us forecast for better purchasing.

Nachteile:

So far everything has worked. We still need to work on creating reports that will help us but we are confident we will be able to create the reports we need.

My 2 Cents

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I think this is a good product overall, I haven't ever used customer support and don't know how much it costs so I can't really rate those, I gave them an average. I gave Features and Functionality only 2 stars as certain fields dropping out (all the time) can be frustrating and time-consuming. I often have to re-enter the supplier name or net terms, not sure why. I also wish the catalog search feature was a little more intuitive.
