Competitors & Alternatives

Fishbowl is an inventory and manufacturing management solution for small to large businesses available at the same price as Siemens Opcenter. Fishbowl is more accessible and flexible when it comes to platforms supported since it has an app version for iOS and Android devices, unlike Siemen Opcenter.

Siemens Opcenter also offers task planning, task scheduling, business intelligence, and reporting and statistics capabilities. However, Fishbowl offers more features than Siemen Opcenter such as inventory management, bar code scanning, employee management, multi-currency, POS, purchase management, warehouse management, eCommerce integration, and more.

Fishbowl has higher customer review ratings than Siemens Opcenter and is a better manufacturing system because of its wider range of functions. Epicor ERP is a cloud-based manufacturing solution for the same client size as Siemens Opcenter. Epicor ERP pricing is at the same ranges as Siemens Opcenter.

Epicor ERP has a downloadable app version for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, unlike Siemens Opcenter. Epicor ERP also provides business analytics, product lifecycle management, and business intelligence.

However, Siemens Opcenter has no accounting integration, billing, purchasing, payroll, supply chain management, product configurator, and B2C web functionality which Epicor ERP offers. Both have high vendor reputation online but Epicor ERP is a better choice for a manufacturing management software.
