It allows business to operate the way they want to, with no massive upfront costs. With a focus on awesome user experience, simpler customizations, painless implementations and lower upfront costs, Paragon is targeted at small business who are fed up with ERP that sucks and are in search of a cloud-based ERP that is flexible enough to handle any of their business needs, at an affordable price.
As a full-feature ERP system, Paragon incorporates manufacturing, finance, warehousing &inventory, and purchasing functionality as well as sales and product management. Paragon aims to deliver a flexible and user-friendly ERP solution.
In order to help users handle customer service processes efficiently, Paragon equips users with the forms to manage sales orders, credit notes and return merchandise authorizations. To enhance user productivity, Paragon ERP centralizes all customer, product, shipment tracking and stock reservation information. Furthermore, Paragon ERP facilitates effective financial management by allowing users to organize their general ledger, journal entries and tax files online. Moreover, Paragon ERP enables users to manage payroll, invoicing and budgeting activity simply and securely.
Besides customer service and finance, Paragon ERP allows users to control shipping, manufacturing and purchasing procedures conveniently with labeling, scanning and scheduling tools.

Paragon ERP employs a number of tools designed to give users actionable insight into business performance like reports, charts and graphs and forecasting and predictive analytics via and integration with QlikView. Other integrations include POS functionality and electronic data interchange of purchase order and invoice transactions. As a multi-language I18N capable software, Paragon ERP aspires to provide users with a fully flexible and accessible system.
Paragon adapts to your business, instead of the other way around. That is unprecedented in ERP land. It means it can meet business requirements in terms of terminology used, product attributes, associations, rules, etc. Also the implementation time is very short and the software is very intuitive. This means that you're up and running in a very short time. Also you can continue to tweak and further optimize processes aftwards. So your ERP evolves with your organization and delivers increasing efficiencies over time.
- It looks amazing
- Very intuitive
- It is very flexible (configuration allows to meet nearly every requirement, no custom coding needed)
- Outstanding data import possibilities
Some nice to have features are still missing, but I understand nearly all of these features are being worked on or are planned for the near future. I have been following Paragon for 2 years now and given the speed of delivery shown over that period of time, Jonar has shown to deliver on promise.

Efficient and effective process, transparency, cost savings
Simplicity, uniformity, ability to add attributes to shape your own business taxonomy in the package. The fact that it is cloud based helps to be an enterprise without complex pieces of iron and an minimal need for internal IT
The fact that it runs in the cloud, could have the risk of making it a bit slower compared to something that runs on your machine, however, noticed a little effect

We were looking for a system that was simple enough to get our business started. Something that was a step up from Excel spreadsheets for managing our purchasing and supply chain. But we also wanted something that could grow with us and could handle increasing complexity over time. Having read about some failed ERP implementations and learning about the hefty price tag that comes with it all, our expectations were pretty low.
Paragon was our first experience with any sort of ERP system and we were pleasantly surprised. For a small company just starting out, Paragon made everything pretty easy. We got the system up and running in few days and were able to start using it soon after. Paragon can handle all of our needs now and seems to have the capacity to be customized as our business changes. As novice users, we were able to figure out our way around the system with little to no help or training at all. And the system was available at a more reasonable price then we expected.
The system is a pretty new so it¿s a little buggy. But the team at Jonar has been great at addressing the issues in a reasonable timeframe.
For a first pass at ERP, we¿d say Paragon¿s pretty good.
