Sales & Purchase made simple

5.0 6 years ago

Comments: Software is one of my favorites for companies with no purchase order system.

Pros:

Great for small companies who need sales and purchasing. Sales has records of customer quoted sales and purchases can see what to order. Great way for a company to keep track of purchases and data can be exported to third part software. Purchasing software even has serial column for warranty verification of products. Was great for HVAC and appliance repair company. Great software for company with no purchase order system. Can make everything paperless and user's can view inventory, content and prices with no license. User license is portable.

Cons:

Software lacks year end inventory count reset. Reports could be better to show year to date expenses. I had a tough time getting year to date reports.

Love the Inflow iCloud Product

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Overall, this software has been a great help in my business, managing all aspects to help production run smoothly & CRM management through to managing my vendors... I would highly recommend this product to others without hesitation

Pros:

The software is user friendly to use & learn, training materials are easily accessible all the time.

Cons:

The iCloud product doesn't have some features as per the desktop version.

Alternatives Considered: Odoo and Zoho Inventory

Reasons for Choosing inFlow Inventory: I made the switch, as I needed an internet-based software to manage my inventory whilst out of the office. I also wanted a user-friendly interface

Switched From: Zoho Inventory

Reasons for Switching to inFlow Inventory: I was already familiar with the Premiere version

Very intuitive, and such an easy entry into the world of bar-coding.

3.0 9 years ago

Comments: I went to the internet with a need, and that was to get our small business bar-coded, since the old words-only tags were taking so long to process at the point of sale, ie. hand written receipts and all, causing lineups that were too long at times and likely costing us business. I found your book offer "Bar-code Your Business" and ordered a copy. It was well written, very concise, and of course, led me to purchase Inflow. What I REALLY like about Inflow is how intuitive it is. I didn't need to take a course to figure it out, as it feels very Windows-like. I purchased a no-name bar code gun online, devised a model code scheme for our products, and was up and running in no time. Thanks. On the "not so shiny" comments side, I can't say I liked the upgrade from v2 to v3. The original v2 did everything I needed, and required less explanation to my helpers as to it's function. Suddenly with v3, we now had to hit Save, Fulfill and Mark Paid, all of which ended up with me having to fix this by cheating the date on my computer and closing orders after the fact, when the helpers didn't do it the first time. I was also broadsided one day when on the job, Inflow v3 just froze up on me and I didn't know what to do, exactly when I needed it the most. Well, it turns out that I had to be connected to the internet to use it, obviously so Inflow could monitor licensing/usage status. This was not good, although your customer service was quick to help me with this. If you could find another way to police the licensing, that would be nice. And finally, the one thing that drives me nuts (did again yesterday) is the fact that if I fill in the "customer name" field AFTER having filled in the sales order details, any discounts applied off original price get erased. This has on a number of occasions caused me to inadvertently overcharge customers, and is extremely embarrassing when it's they who notice it first and think I'm trying to "pull a fast one" on them. PLEASE fix this! (although I'm outside of my customer support time window, you can spare others the same issue). Once again, I must compliment your customer service (hen it still applied to me) for their very prompt responses to any query I ever had. Peter

Review from Eastside Exterminators

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Overall it has been an awesome experience. I was sold from the beginning. [sensitive content hidden] to get our inventory imported and get our custom fields setup, it was clear that the support was awesome. We have been with inflow since 2018 and I have recommended inflow to some of our sister companies across the country.

Pros:

Technical support is quick to respond and communicates clearly. User interface on the desktop version is very clear and easy to use. Showroom access helps efficiency.

Cons:

Having to pay for increments of 5 user subscriptions at a time. Meaning that one person needing to be added will cost you adding 5, leaving 4 licenses unused. Showroom needs an "add to cart" button. Currently, you just increase the quantity, which works fine, it just confuses people new to the process until they get the hang of it. It also leads to people adding things to their cart that they did not mean to add.

Thanks, Louis! It's great to hear the details of which parts of inFlow you're finding useful, and we've shared the Showroom feedback with our product team. And you're right that our plans come with a minimum number of users—like 2 or 5. We don't currently offer plans with fewer users than that, but there are options to add one extra user at a time. ^TW

Decent Inventory Cloud management at a fraction of the cost of the competitors

5.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Much better than anything else we trialled, the interface is good and their help team responsive.
Overall very pleased with it

Pros:

Pictorial easy to use cloud interface, app which allows scanning inventory in and out. Easy to manufacture items and sub components of items

Cons:

Still working a few bugs out of the system, but what software isn't. There is some rather crucial information missing on stock adjustments (like who did them), which makes following up a pain for me at the moment - I hope they are going to add this data field in the future. I would also like to be able to make explanations for stock movement mandatory

Alternatives Considered: Fishbowl , Odoo , Trello , NetSuite , Sage 100 , Katana Cloud Inventory and Zoho Inventory

Reasons for Choosing inFlow Inventory: MRPeasy was too difficult for my users to understand, and was not user friendly or easy. Sortly was pretty and cheaper, however it doesn't have manufacturing or real inventory control processes

Switched From: MRPeasy and Sortly

Reasons for Switching to inFlow Inventory: We manufacture items and make products with sub components, inflow was by far the easiest and most user friendly package for this. I was also impressed by their ability to support a young business. We had Inflow fully up and running in one with with 3 locations and thousands of lines of stock. People can start using it with confidence with very little training thanks to its easy and logical interface.
