The debate between what's an add-on vs. what's an ERP is not new. The add-ons will never have the traceability requirements that regulated industries such as Med Device and Pharma require. But unfortunately, due to the limited technical background of auditors, they can't distinguish whether a record is traceable inside the system. Or would it require manual steps to establish the linking? Also, because of the fragile integration between QuickBooks and Sage50, there are likely to be significant data integrity issues. Most QuickBooks add-ons suffer from the same problems, but they all have a tendency to call them ERP. So where does QT9 stand?

In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to conduct an independent review of QT9 ERP capabilities. We covered many grounds, including their strength with document management and quality workflow processes, including how it compares with other life sciences-centric ERP systems such as Deacom, Blue Link, and Sage X3. We also converted the weaknesses with their data model and how it will suffer from the same traceability issue as other Quickbooks add-ons such as Katana MRP.
