    Web-Based & Production Flow Visibility = Awesome

    Reviewed on 2017/06/21

    LillyWorks is a great value for the ease of use and the flexibility of a web-based solution.

    Pros

    The company that I work for has been a long-time ERP user. LillyWorks is the 2nd ERP I have worked with since joining the company. I love using LillyWorks. The web-based solution allows me to do my job whenever, wherever, and however I choose. Additionally, because of the browser, I can have multiple screens open at the same time. The screen to use is one click away. This is so much easier than having either 2 or 3 monitors or multiple screens “stacked” on top of each other. Finally, as the Quality Manager, one of my responsibilities include the maintenance of the Bill of Materials. LillyWorks has introduced an Engineering Model that consists of the recipe (material & labor to manufacture an item) as well as the routings to complete the product. It is shown in a visual flow chart that makes it so simplistic to follow and determine exactly where an order is in the pipeline.

    Cons

    I have not experienced anything negative yet. The speed of the download is great and the ability to see the time spent and cost of the job makes my life so much easier.

    Great software for machine shops! Really good for schedule & costing!

    Reviewed on 2016/05/12

    Pros

    LillyWorks team is extremely supportive! This software is very user friendly & visually aesthetic, not overwhelming at all. LillyWorks delivers on their mission! You can access & use LillyWorks anywhere, anytime, no matter how many "users" on & from your smartphone too!

    Cons

    At this time there is not one thing I dislike about this software & company. Anything I ever had an issue, or dislike with, at the time of use, I contacted LillyWorks support team & they walked me through the issues & provided a solution for me right away.

    Quick to Implement with On-line Training

    Reviewed on 2017/07/15

    Pros

    My company needed a quick to market solution for a manufacturing company that had very few manufacturing processes.
    I have experience with implementing several ERP solutions, so I needed a solution that I could train on-line and develop the core manufacturing execution processes.
    I could utilize the on-line training and learn how to do the following in a very brief period of time –
    1. enter customer orders and link to work order;
    2. create engineering model which consists of traditional engineering bill of material and the manufacturing routings;
    3. create request for quotes to suppliers;
    4. place purchase orders;
    5. build and ship product;
    6. create multiple inventory locations and track inventory by location.
    The online training provided me the “how to” in LillyWorks.
    The simplicity of the system and the logical flow of the order-to-cash process for manufacturing has allowed me to configure and ship orders as well as inventory and consume materials in a brief period of time.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems a bit cumbersome to move about the screens. However, it is very simple to move about once you understand the menu structure. However, this is more a learning issue more than a design issue.

    Easy to Use, GREAT visibility to costs

    LillyWorks is opening our eyes to our processes and costs to manufacture products. Even before “going-live” with LillyWorks, while building engineering models & documenting workflow process, we are immediately able to see inefficiencies that were previously undiscovered. We already have the visibility necessary to identify the products that cost more to make than our sales price. With one product, in particular, we immediately worked with our tooling vendor and our production team to tackle the problem. In one 2-hour session, we reduced tooling and cycle time costs by 200%, enough to more than pay for the total cost of the system. We would not have discovered this opportunity without the instant visibility to costs that Lillyworks provides.

    We bought LillyWorks for the scheduling. With our broad range of products and processes, we need to pull products through the shop as efficiently as possible. What we have discovered on the way to bringing that online is an easy-to-use system that naturally highlights potential pitfalls and opportunities for improvement.

    Pros

    Easy to Use; Web-Based; Manufacturing Execution; Visibility to costs; Manage by exception;

    Cons

    Pros

    How it is able to take over scheduling with complicated requirements. Implementation of software took less than 1 week.

    Cons

    Cloud based program, so if you lose internet connection you cannot access the software. Good news about living in this day is that internet is everywhere.
