Most Helpful Positive User Review
One positive reviewer highlighted how easy it was to have all their several locations centralized at their warehouse. Erply’s ability to show real-time stock levels also helped with their growth and allowed them to manage store transfers and write-offs. The reviewer recommended Erply to anyone who is looking for an all around business management software solution.
Most Helpful Negative User Review
A 2-star reviewer liked how all the major features integrated so well, but felt that a lot of the other extra features were ill executed and impractical. He said that paying such a high price for barely useable features is frustrating.

Erply’s software can be downloaded for free via desktop, an iPad, or an Android device. However, you need to sign up for an account and apply for one of their plans to be able to use the service.
POS hardware is not included in any of the plans, but they have two hardware bundles that you can purchase at an extra cost. Bundle 1 includes an iPad enclosure, cash drawer, bluetooth receipt printer, bluetooth barcode scanner, and will cost you an additional $940. Bundle 2 includes everything in Bundle 1, minus the barcode scanner, and costs $615.
Users are limited to 1 only for every register you purchase. If you want to add more users to your plan, it will cost you an additional $20 / month for every 10 users you add.
Best Pricing Option for Small Business Owners
With more detailed reports, comparative reports, and priority customer service, Erply Pro has more value for the money. Go with hardware bundle 2 for even more savings if you don’t need a barcode scanner.
