What is Finale Inventory?

Finale Inventory is an intuitive, cloud-based inventory management system that is easy to use while also designed to scale to the demands of a growing business. Seamlessly handle all stock movements from purchasing through to sales.

Key benefits of using Finale Inventory

  • Centralized Inventory Tracking

    Sync both offline and online orders in one central location. For online sales, Finale can sync with the user's shopping cart (e.g, Shopify or Magento) and marketplaces (e.g. Amazon and eBay) either directly or via a supported shipping platform integration (e.g. ShipStation). For offline orders, Finale can sync orders from POS systems (e.g. Square, Lightspeed, Shopify POS). Prevent overselling and negative reviews by having Finale sync updated inventory stock levels back to Amazon, Woocommerce, Magento, and other popular shopping carts and marketplaces in near real-time.

  • Easy Migration From Excel (or other inventory management systems)

    Finale Inventory was designed in part to accommodate companies that leveraged Excel as their initial inventory management tool and need to migrate to an inventory management system to support their growing business. Our strong import and export capabilities can be leveraged to ease this transitional burden.

  • Multi-location Support

    - Monitor inventory levels by location
    - Receive or pick inventory at each location
    - Quickly transfer products from one location to another

  • Easy Customization (because every company is different)

    Whether it's adding custom fields, customizing purchase or sales orders, or customizing reports for a user's exact needs, Finale Inventory makes it easy to adapt the software to your business needs.

  • Lightning Quick Search & Filter Capability

    Finale was designed with speed in mind. The idea was to allow users to spend less time seeing the loading spinner and waiting for results and more time leveraging Finale to make data-driven business decisions.

  • Extensive Shipping Capabilities

    Finale Inventory has extensive packing and capabilities which goes beyond the basic operation of printing a pull sheet, picking the products and shipping the package.

  • Case Packing Functionality

    Finale Inventory give users the ability to track case stock items separately from open stock. This makes a complex task of sending a case to the wholesaler and an individual unit to a retail customer a straight forward operation.

  • Extensive Reporting

    Finale Inventory comes preloaded with 20+ common inventory, purchase, sales and accounting reports. If users do not see a report that meets their exact requirements, Finale's reporting engine has a feature akin to Excel pivot tables that allows users to create those needed custom reports.

    The software is very easy to learn and use, along with great features and functionality. Has some great workarounds and has been able to do everything we've needed and much more.

    I've evaluated a few other solutions and for the money, Finale is great. There is a learning curve and it certainly helps if you're good with excel.

    Cons
    All systems lack something but there are no real standouts to me right now. Having done so many system ups, I have had to find less manual or other workarounds to run this system.

    Sometimes when mapping items, I start to type and a drop down menu of items appears and when I click on the correct one, the wrong one gets inputted.

    Finally, An Inventory Management Solution That Does Just That, Really Well

    Reviewed 7 years ago

    After months of testing and trialing every inventory management software and system on the market, Finale has been such a blessing! From the very first day of signing up, the Finale owner and team have been extremely helpful and responsive to any and every one of our questions or concerns. The interface, layout and organization of the Finale app is extremely user-friendly and does not distract...

    Pros

    Cloud based, unlimited users, copy and paste import and edit features, easy stock take, integration with ShipStation with regular attention and upgrades. Strongest search feature we’ve seen. Slick interface and automatic purchase order generation.

    Finale has improved everything in our company

    Reviewed a year ago

    Finale was introduced to our company after a long, tedious process of finding and then trying to implement another IMS (Fishbowl). I was skeptical of the great reviews and claims from other users since I had really been put through the wringer by another company during implementation. After going through a demo and poking around a bit, I was sold. Importing all of the data was a breeze, the user interface...

    Pros

    Finale implementation is quick and pretty simple. We use it with ShipStation and the learning curve was practically non-existent because it's so intuitive. Importing data is just a matter of copying and pasting a spreadsheet into their import tool. This makes adding and updating products/customers/vendors/etc. a breeze. I also generate invoices from Finale. We have pretty long production lead times on the majority of our products so predicting stock outs is very important to us and we can trust Finale to calculate that information correctly. The basic reporting is good but the ability to customize existing reports or create your own is excellent. Most importantly, their level of customer service is absolutely top notch.

    Cons

    We did have some hiccups with marketplace integrations but we able to work with Finale to create workarounds that have been fine.

    Powerful, flexible inventory and warehouse system with fantastic customer support

    Reviewed 8 days ago

    Finale has made all the difference in being able to track and control inventory of thousands of products, across several marketplaces, and reduce our error rate significantly, as well as enable us to scale our growth. Most important has been their amazing customer support, which held our hand through all the integrations and spent a lot of time before and afterward to make sure we were utilizing all the features that would help move the needle for our business. It's a very straightforward product, and behind all the intuitive usage are layers of even more features that I continue to learn.

    Pros

    It solved our most major problems, which was keeping track of thousands of products across several marketplace platforms, and getting our warehouses organized and everything barcoded. As manufacturers as well as retailers, we also needed a way to keep better track of components and predict usage, and Finale has a very intuitive and robust system that covers all of that and far beyond. Truly, though, their greatest asset is their customer support team, who know the product thoroughly and has spent many meetings with us to get everything implemented step by step. They are fantastic at explaining and demonstrating how to use the product.

    Cons

    There were two features that I expressed a wish for, and it turned out that both were in development (and one has come to fruition already). It is an extremely powerful program and to tell the truth, I don't feel I've even scratched the surface of what it can do, so it is possible that whatever I could think of as a wish is already a feature.

    Is slower than God

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    Was pretty easy to use, although cumbersome with all the screens you have to use to add on product, cannot add inventory from the item page, so quite a few unnecessary clicks there. Also goes into negative inventory which for us means when there is an error we have to manually reset items to zero, would be nice if there was an option to just have inventory go to 0. Also be nice if it has a seasonality feature for ordering, like we need more of this widget for winter etc.

    Cons

    It stalls out constantly, no matter the browser no matter the computer, especially on weekends basically unusable, and by the time email support gets back to you it is better again, but they never admit an issue or offer a fix or apology.

    Great product, but sometimes not reliable.

    Reviewed 4 months ago

    Overall the inventory system is great! It accomplished everything we needed it for and more.

    Pros

    Finale Inventory has a very simple import tool. You simply copy data from an excel spreadsheet and paste them into the inventory system through you web browser as the inventory is cloud-based. Finale takes care of the rest. This truly intuitive copy/paste import method saves time, and having the ability to edit products in your catalog editing your catalog makes it struggle free. Generating Purchase...

    Cons

    The system is sometimes a little glitchy. The Finale team do promise to iron some of these out in the near future, but right now they still remain. Their team rarely apologies if the system hasn't been working as it should, and never admit fault.
