Manufacturing & inventory management for small manufacturers

4.71/5 (7 reviews)

Katana MRP overview

Katana MRP is a production and inventory management software designed to help small manufacturers streamline day-to-day operations and sell online, with manufacturing, warehouse, portfolio, sales, and purchasing management. As a cloud-based solution, Katana MRP supports automatic data backups, and gives users the flexibility to work on the go through any internet-enabled device.

Visual dashboards support efficient production planning, allowing users to track orders, processes and delivery deadlines, as well as set priorities and manage tasks. Within the sales and purchasing modules, users have centralized access to a sales grid, alongside sales and purchase order management tools. The sales grid provides a complete overview of the sales order fulfillment pipeline, allowing users to track sales order status and manage material availability.

Katana MRP’s warehouse management module facilitates automatic inventory management, real-time inventory control, and stock level optimization. Optimal stock level calculations help users make informed procurement or manufacturing decisions. Portfolio features include product and material cards, variants, production recipes (bill-of-materials), and production operations (routing) management. Bill-of-materials and routing technology allows users to track costs and quantities of materials automatically, as well as calculate costs related to production labor accurately.

To enhance business operations, Katana MRP supports a number of integrations with marketplace and eCommerce platforms, such as Shopify and WooCommerce, as well as accounting software, including Xero and QuickBooks. The Katana MRP premium ‘Workshop’ package includes advanced features such as multi-location support and full API access.

I learned this product by using it; few hints from the online help. I decided on day one to keep it

I can now run my business without spreadsheet hell. I can actually make more product. This is not an exaggeration. I was stressed before using this software. I actually could not work out what I needed to order to satisfy our production demands. It answers my questions easily, what purchase orders do I need to make to satisfy the orders I have coming in. What should I work on next and when will it be ready for the customer! I can see delays in deliveries and the effect on production. It manages very complex bill of materials for our vast number of products. and it does so with a user experience that is simple and easy.
