Robust and Affordable Inventory Management

2018-03-26

We needed a program that was easy to learn with the ability to have real-time inventory counts, profit and cost of goods sold, along with sales quotes that could be moved into sales orders and invoices along with vendor ordering capability.

Pros

The inFlow Inventory program was quite easy to learn and compared to other inventory management software, really affordable.

Cons

Although the reporting capacity gave all the information that was needed for management and financial meetings, the information had to be exported out of Inflow and imported into the accounting program manually.

Review of Inflow Cloud

2018-10-23

The ability to export information and create custom reporting is very helpful for the reporting we need to do here.

Pros

We have found that INFLOW was willing to work with us to set this up to best fit our needs. We find the customer service and support staff to be incredibly helpful. They not only respond in a timely fashion to our requests, but followup with ideas and suggestions to be sure that we are not continually struggling with a project we are trying to set up.

Cons

Also, the invoices did not print out correctly without additional work on our end and the statement feature was difficult.

Almost amazing, but still very solid

2019-12-06

The way we work around not having this feature built in is that we have lot based inventory. So instead of setting it up as 'Widget A', 'Widget B' and 'Widget C' it's setup so that there are 10 lot numbers associated with A, 15 with B, etc.

Pros

Easy to use Accurate tracking Can setup multiple warehouse locations Customer service is top notch A lot of reports, can build customer reports if needed

Cons

No built in lot code tracking - there are work arounds for this but they aren't perfect and have their own issues which wouldn't be an issue if there was built in lot code tracking.

Hi Melissa!
Thank you for the review and sharing the details on how you're working with lot numbers!

You're right that it isn't an officially supported feature (we have locations and sublocations, but no lot number field). However, in case it helps anyone else who needs to use lot numbers with inFlow, we do have a suggested workaround in our Support KB:

Good Inventory Management

I'm an office manager for a doctor's office and we sell vitamins and it was easy loading our inventory and it's made it a lot easier to track what comes in and what is sold.

Pros

I like the dashboard feature a lot.

Cons

Was a bit difficult to adjust inventory as I was setting it up.

Very useful for SMB - small scale stock management (Inflow Standalone Version)

2017-10-20

Overall, very useful software to have if you need stock management and PO/SO control

Pros

Has all features for a small scale business needs to manage stock and keeping logs of PO's and invoices. It has helped the business grow.

Cons

Data export is in a format that is hard to edit, CSV export files once opened cannot be used straight away as the numbers are all in "TEXT" format.

I have used Inflow for almost 4 years and have not found a reason to change inventory systems yet.

2018-07-02

The reporting offered by inFlow is very detailed and well laid out.

Pros

Inflow has a lot of characteristics and functionality that other inventory systems do not.

Cons

The only thing that we have had trouble with Inflow Inventory is the fact that they do not offer an open API.

Pass all Excel inventories very quickly and manage the products in more than 5+ stores

Pros

The flexibility that gives the user, if I need a report that does not have inFlow I can export / create it to Excel.

Cons

I do not have a clear disadvantage ... mmm ... I see that you can not handle products with expiration date, but that is not my item

Great Inventory software for small business

2018-06-21

Kept accurate track of inventory and was very cost effective

Pros

We've tracked as many as 40 items and it was very helpful in ensuring proper management of all items.

Cons

You have to buy multiple licences to use on different computers. You're supposed to be able to login from another computer to the server system if you only have one license but it never worked.

A+ For Manufacturing

2019-12-18

We have tied inFlow into our whole order workflow. Data entered into sales orders is pulled into custom reports and with on-site data access, we are also able to use it to make very customized labels with heavy automation from the data already in inFlow.

Pros

Searching is great and user interface is easy to use.

Cons

Would love to use new features from inFlow Cloud but our data policy requires us to keep data under our control.
