"Straight forward."

Comments: Over all I am very pleased. The customer service has been excellent. Very quick to respond, and helpful in assisting when I have an issue.

Pros: As the Inside Sales Manager, I like how easy it is to track our Sale Orders and Purchase Orders. The Tie Doc feature specifically allows me to easily link the two together. Also the level of customization and flexibility when running reports is invaluable.

Cons: There can be a slight learning curve, but nothing that can't be overcome with minimal effort.

"Full Cycle Accounting"

Comments: Overall, I give Plus and Minus a 10 out of 10 stars. It has met every expectation that I have ever had and continues to surprise me. I can’t tell you how many times I have reached out for support and have been given a solution for every situation that arises.

Pros: Plus and Minus has been a dream to use for the last 11 years. I use this ERP System to seamlessly manage the financials of 3 companies. Executing inter-company transactions daily and running supporting reports to ensure all inter-company accounts are balanced is critical for our businesses.
From a managerial perspective, the number of reports that you can run is endless. My team manages/supports sales and the procurement of inventory through these functions and many others.

Cons: The only con I have for Plus and Minus and I'm sure it's the same for any other ERP System is that there is a learning curve.

"Meets all expectations"

Pros: A very easy to use application that basically allows for real-time financial reporting. This has made book keeping very easy.

"Best value and solution"

Comments: Early on in my career I worked for a company using Plus & Minus. We ended up being purchased by a global company where I ended up travelling around the world supporting and installing various large-scale ERP and accounting software systems. Many were industry leading companies in their field. Over time, I realized the power in Plus & Minus compared to these behemoth business systems. The one format design forces a discipline making it simple, powerful, and reliable which is an aspect the more expensive software products cannot achieve due to their multi-format designs. The common thread that held all these large software systems was their complexity, lack of reliability and the big-ticket expense we had to pay just to get things to work correctly! The power in Plus & Minus is in its simplicity of the software and I continue to be astonished at its affordability. It just works!!

Pros: Ease of use, value, support and flexibility and scalability

Cons: At the time we used it, some end-users couldn't format the reports as easily as I would have liked but I'm pretty sure it's been added (report writer) since that was more than several versions back.

"Medical Company"

Comments: As a former CFO of a fortune 500 company with over 1100 employees in Accounting, I wish I had discovered this software sooner due to its simplicity and versatility.

Pros: It handles inter-company transactions with a click and produces consolidating financial statements in seconds. The one format makes importing as simple as 1-2-3.

Cons: There is nothing that I dont like about the software
