Introduction to Pronto Software
I’m pleased to say that the certification for the PRONTO-Xi enterprise resource planning (ERP) system has been completed by TEC’s analyst team. Here I’d like to share my impression and some conclusions regarding this system with you.
This past week we had the pleasure of receiving Pronto as guests at TEC’s offices. Both Terry Leister, VP North America, and Jayd Blunden, Senior Business Consultant at Pronto Software were here for the certification meeting. I really appreciate the fact that they made the long trip from Australia to Canada to meet the analysts and show us their impressive system.
Pronto Software is an integrated solution provider, known mostly in Australia (where they are based), as well as in the South Asia region. They are currently putting a lot of effort into becoming more recognized and successful in the North American market. The company has catered to the midsized ERP market for over 30 years and undoubtedly has a deep and clear understanding of their over 1,500 customers’ business needs and challenges. Pronto Software defines its major clients as manufacturing, importer distributors, integrated retailers, facilities and service companies, mining, and mining supply companies.
Product Strengths and Challenges
In order to define the solution’s features—in other words, its strong aspects as well as its weaker points—I used the information that I obtained during the demo meeting as well as the data from the request for information (RFI) that was completed by Pronto. I also used TEC’s eBestMatch™ decision support system (DSS), which can be used by anyone looking to do a similar exercise for any enterprise software selection project.
Among the functionality of the Pronto Xi ERP system, I would like to highlight the following:
In spite of all the software’s features and advantages, I found a few areas where Pronto Xi’s capabilities were not as robust as its competitors in this space.
The contribution analysis graph below shows that in most business areas, Pronto’s Xi system rates higher than average by the industry benchmark. The only exceptions—as I mentioned earlier—are human resources and process manufacturing management areas—where the ratings are slightly lower than the industry benchmark.

Pronto Software positions its ERP product as a system for midsize to large organizations with total number of employees from 1 to 10,000 and more. Based on what I saw during the product demonstration, and on the level of support information I obtained from Pronto’s RFI, I consider this product to be well established and reliable, and in some cases can be considered a lower cost alternative to tier 1 suppliers.
