Oneir ERP At A Glance

Good: Multiple Selling Channel vertically integrates quotes, CRM and MRP to streamline sales funnel.
Bad: Could use HR and BI modules to complete total functionality, SaaS version to be released in early 2019.
Bottom Line: Scalable, customizable, robust ERP offers tools to manage most key business functions for SMBs, but lacks HR and BI features.

Product Overview

Oneir ERP is a scalable, broad-based, fully integrated business, accounting and inventory control software solution that manages key business functions through a single, shared-information database.

A full array of business management features handle key business functions. Resources – time, material, product – are conserved and more judiciously used, streamlining processes and boosting the bottom line.

The ERP solution’s Multiple Selling Channel feature integrates price quotations, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and Material Replacement Management (MRP) into one comprehensive suite and allows for business transactions to happen at any time from multiple devices.

Oneir ERP can be configured for most any industry, but its prominent customers work in wholesale, retail, manufacturing, services, construction, industrial equipment, flooring and tile, and food and beverage industries.

Below are some of Oneir Solution’s clients:

Implementation/Integration

Oneir’s implementation team collaborates with a customer’s technical team to deploy the solution on-premise, including loading server software, setting up workstations and converting legacy data.

The customer selects the server operating system. Whether Windows, Linux or another, once the OS has been selected, Oneir dedicates a VMware partition on that server where the system template will be configured.

Customer staff training on system operation, management reporting and end of period procedures is available online from Oneir’s support team. Supplementing this initial training, Oneir provides a user manual and an active training company, so staff can practice with the solution.

Customer Service & Support

The annual support plan that comes with each subscription includes unlimited telephone, fax and email support, as well as after-hours emergency support. Subscribers are also entitled to receive free software updates.

Live support is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST Monday through Friday. After-hours emergency support is available between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. through 9 p.m. EST Saturday and Sunday.

Pricing

Oneir Solution’s pricing structure has a base system for the software plus extra fees for specialty applications and seat/user licenses. An example of a typical implementation cost for a 10-user version would be approximately $20,000, plus implementation services for data conversion and training.

Shortcomings

Could use Business Intelligence and HR modules to close full functionality circle.

Lacks a full web browser/mobile app with SaaS billing version (but has one planned for release in early 2019).
