Reviewed 2019-12-30
Review Source: Capterra

We needed a way to catalog and add location codes in our warehouse for over 144k SKUs, we move inventory frequently around the warehouse so simple methods of barcode scanning and updating where required. Warehouse staff needed ease of use at every level from receiving to order picking and shipping.

Pros
Simple setup Lots of features Integrations across every section of the Internet Retail Multi-level Blanks inventory kitting and bundling

Cons
Limitation on users in the pricing tier and cost of additional users. Training staff can be challenging with so many features

Works Well - Tons of Flexibility

Review Source: Capterra

Allows us to track exact location of every item in the warehouse, and QC each online order before shipping. Makes the warehouse much more efficient, and significantly reduces shipping errors.

Pros
Very detailed, can be tailored to many types of businesses and has a large number of integrations so chances are it works with your setup or can be adapted easily. Includes a remote print server so pick lists, labels, etc. can be printed anywhere and at multiple locations - very cool.

Cons
They advertise support with accounting software, but the accounting side is VERY limited - does not take into consideration discounts, tax, or shipping so this is really useless. A more thoughtful accounting integration would really improve this service.

Didn't Work For Us

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I think "ripped off" describes our experience. We paid the $2,000 onboarding fee and spent a month setting up SkuVault. We also spent additional money integrating our drop shippers with SkuVault. After launch, SkuVault failed to sync our external warehouse quantities with WooCommerce. After another month, tech support still hadn't fixed the issue, so we switched to Ecomdash and had everything running in 72 hours. Ecomdash refunded our monthly subscription fees but they still haven't refunded the $2,000 onboaring fee. I'll update this review if that changes, but I currently cannot recommend SkuVault. You'll basically be paying $2,000 just to see if SkuVault really does the things they claim it will do.

Pros
SkuVault has rich features for warehouse management. For example, SkuVault tracks inventory in containers, and in multiple locations. You can also track inventory history, reasons for removal, etc. If you have a large warehouse, it might work well for you.

Cons
A) It's not terribly easy to use. Heck, they made us buy a $2,000 training package. B) The product search function is frustrating. You pretty much can't find a product in SkuVault unless you can type in the product name "exactly". It's almost maddening at times. In comparison, Ecomdash finds my product before I even finish typing; the right product shows up after I type just a few characters. C) The Shipstation integration and packing quality control didn't work very well. The picking/packing flow required too much jumping back and forth and created additional opportunities to screw up an order. We turned these features off. D) The WooCommerce integration doesn't work very well. Evidently, the built-in integration is fairly new, and they preferred that we use their older "tool"; a downloadable program for inventory syncing. However, this didn't work so well either. E) Multiple warehouse functionality is limited. We have warehouses and sales channels in the US, and also in the UK. Ultimately, we need to push our US inventory quantities to our US sales channels, and our UK inventory quantities need to push to our UK sales channels. SkuVault can't do this; it's designed to sync the total combined quantity. Ecomdash has a warehouse override feature that takes it a step closer to doing this. For about $2,500, Ecomdash offered to develop this for us.

Managing a vast floor of inventories across multiple channels has been greatly overhauled with a very minimal manual effort required.

Pros
Effectively managing centralized inventory would be the best thing it offers with almost instantaneous uploads to all the connected CRM's.

Cons
The UX is a bit old-fashioned, reminds you of the good 'ol days a bit, but it's effective with its layout, so I would be inclined to withdraw this comment.

Skuvault allows us to fairly easily keep track of all items in our warehouse and provides perpetual inventory valuation. It also helps us to reduce out of stocks with individual item re-order points and purchase order generation.

Pros
Ease of set up, accurately maintains warehouse location and inventory data.

Cons
Order creation process for shipments and inventory removal is difficult to learn and cumbersome.

Pros
Customer service is on point in terms of timely support and helpfulness. Calling and getting an answer on questions helped quite a bit. The WMS is great and very responsive. Integrations went smooth.

Cons
The times at which it updated inventory to the store was debatable as in time frames. I ran into inventory issues especially with low stock inventory. I found the scanning process of the SkuVault was very repetitive with extra steps when used in conjunction with other shipping software

I love Skuvault and it makes my job in retail so much easier!!

Pros
I love that I can trust Skuvault to give me correct numbers. We use light speed, but always double check inventory through skuvault to make sure we are right and on track. It has helped our company to stay on track!

Cons
Sometimes finding an item can be difficult- putting in a location, item and warehouse can take a second and can cause room for error. Also, at times, if you choose to audit a certain brand it doesn’t have all the items listed.

This platform was developed by an eCommerce company for their own use. This gives the comfort that the designers and account managers not only talk the talk but walk the walk.

Pros
SKUVAULT is a flexible, fungible platform that is adaptable to nearly any eCommerce operation. It adapts to control of inbound raw materials, application of multiple SKUs to one item. It can handle Kitting, and light manufacturing operations, converting consumable items, raw materials, packaging and assigning the Finished goods part number. SKUVAULT is versatile in the Order selections process and offers a final item match to prevent shipping errors. The live Cycle Count process is a valuable tool for the operation.

Cons
There are a few reporting gaps that show in extracting the users data but compared to other Web based applications, you can access your data and it is traceable to a company's internal SKUs.

After more than a year with SkuVault, I can honestly say that this is the best and most evolving to fit the customers' needs WMS that I've ever encountered. SkuVault is highly affordable compared to other warehouse management systems. You'd be hard pressed to find another WMS with as many features for the same amount of money. Our last warehouse management system cost 6 figures, and we had to fly someone onsite for more than a week to install it. SkuVault has more features than that system, and you don't have to pay to fly someone out to update it for you... That's the beauty of the cloud. About the cloud, if you're worried about that... We've haven't had any down time the entire time that we've been with SkuVault. SkuVault's WMS is feature packed, and we love the user accountability. Any time that we've had an issue with the way that something worked, SkuVault has changed it for us. The suggested feature section of their website is something that they watch like a hawk, and they are very receptive to customer suggestions... They've made at least 5 changes to the software that we've asked for within that year and a half that we've been with them. What other software company does that? SkuVault has been great for us. Anytime that there's an issue, they are there to help... Immediately. I can't say enough good things about their customer service. I've talked to many people over there, and they've always bent over backwards to help us out. SkuVault is awsome!

SkuVault has helped us organize our listings and logistics

Used daily for less than 6 months

Review Source: Software Advice

We have been using SkuVault for almost 4 years (Since 2013). We have checked our other WMS along the way (Skubana, Seller Cloud, and a couple more) but none of them offered the full features we have with SV. One of our main uses at first was to use SkuVault to push live inventory to Ebay, Amazon and Shopify. Since then features were added and we use SkuVault to run our sales reports, reorder reports, create our POs, receive POs, audit our warehouse, and to track our FBA sales. We also use Shipworks which SkuVault is integrated with. We are looking to possibly add a CMS like Channel Advisor and integrating it with SkuVault and Shipworks but we are not quite there yet and are instead using SkuVault.

Pros
Good forums to make feature requests where users can vote on requests Customer service is fast and we usually talk to the same people every time Integrates with our shipping platform Shipworks Has the most features for the price (We are under 1K a month)

Cons
Does not have the ability to create listings. A work around is needed for this. Sometimes we miss when a new feature is released

Pros
It is one of the easiest inventory products that I've used. Keeping track of everything is essential and they make it fairly simple once you get the hang of it. There is definitely some learning to it but once you figure it out, it's awesome

Cons
Well, it's internet based so you have to have a pretty stable internet signal to use it but other than that, it does what it is designed to do. It is pricey so it's up to you to determine if it's worth it.

Great choice for inventory management and picking

Used daily for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2017-05-08
Review Source: Software Advice

Overall a good software with some negligible issues here and there. If you're looking for something to help you manage inventory, pick, integrate with other software and nothing more, then this a solid choice.

Pros
Very straightforward, with no extra unneeded features. Includes many ways to bulk import and update virtually everything. Software is mobile friendly and their on boarding program and customer service will answer any questions you may or may not have. Integrations with channels are part of the software plan and do not incur additional costs.

Cons
UI has some issues with usability in terms of ease of use, the picking and QC pages are in different sections even though they are meant to be used in conjunction. You are also unable to resize columns in the catalogs making it difficult to see long strings of text.

Fulfills All of Our Inventory/Warehouse Management Needs

Review Source: Capterra

SkuVault has been a god-send for the inventory/warehouse management of my business. Some of my favorite features of the software are: 1) It uses bar code technology to track the precise location of all warehoused items. 2) It integrates with all of the major 3rd party marketplaces to accurately juggle quantities as items cycle in and out of the warehouse. It also integrates with my shipping software (Teapplix) to import orders and sales data. 3) It logs the history of all personnel activities to better monitor the productivity of employees. Additionally, it logs the history of items and locations. 4) It provides detailed reporting on many aspects of my business - sales reports, inventory reports, reorder data, etc. Bottom line, the team at SkuVault is serious about what they do. They provide a very powerful tool already and they are constantly developing and adding new features to make it even greater.

The software is very easy to use. I can now track the movement of all of my inventory and track everything my employees are doing. The people at SkuVault actually listen to our suggestions and often implement the functionality we ask for to their software with out asking us to pay for it. We have been through many different software platforms, and this is the best partnership by far that we have experienced. I would recommend SkuVault to any company that needs better visibility of the work being done in their warehouse. Also, compared to most WMS's they are very affordable.

Skuvault is not a good system for Manufacturing

The people who work at Skuvault seem nice.

Pros
The setup of the software seems nice, it just was not a viable option for what we specifically do with our Company. Skuvault integrates with QuickBooks.

Cons
That we paid a lot of money to have this system setup specifically for our plant. Unfortunately, after 5 months of use, it was still having problems mapping information over from EDI and other Commerce websites. Also, the system would freeze while I was working in it and it would add or remove inventory more than once (sometimes over 5 times), which caused a lot of rework or extra time to correct the errors.
