Pros
How quickly the system calculates the formulas, makes replenishment easy and when you do have a questions they are super fast to help you out.
It is good for organizing inventory for all kinds of business. Also, it is good for inventory management.
It is totally awesome it makes my work ease. Through it now I am able to manage my things well.
Cons
When there are extended periods of downtime there is a risk of data loss through syncs failing. Customer support is barely interested.
Disappointing sums it up. They promise a lot but the problems cause huge headaches and loss of money.
In my case, the interface is rather bloated and confusing, because we only need a few features. But for a larger enterprise, I understand why a lot more of those tools would be needed.

Excellent service for staying on top of purchasing

Reviewed 2 years ago

We needed to identify what was selling, what was dead stock and what we likely to run out of before the next delivery arrived. With long lead times this is tough to manage but IP has really helped us step the business up.

Pros

* Easy to get started, although takes some work to set it as needed * Excellent API for automating works flows * Pricing and automated price reduction when your stocked items falls * Summary level and detail drill downs allow questions to be answered and reviewed in one place * First rate suppport team

Cons

* Company has grown quickly and there have been occasional bugs or issues that have impact on availability * reconciling invoices against POs is tricky as there are not enough "extra charges" boxes and no way to reconcile multiple invoices against a single unless you keep a separate record outside of IP

Vendor response

Hi Andy! Thanks for sharing this review with other users, so more customers can discover how IP can be a great asset for their business and how IP has helped your business. Feel free to let us know if you need any help with anything! The inventory Planner Team

Great Product

Reviewed 5 years ago

Very quick and easy to understand where your inventory problems are at, how much you should be ordering, and alerts to bring issues to your attention proactively.

Pros

The ease of navigating your entire inventory picture is hard to beat. They've done a great job with all relevant info at your fingertips and with lots of customizability on what info to show, and pop-ups with other critical info to condense a lot of information in a compact area. Just one example is the Demand Planning capability: It allows you to see at a glance whether you've had stock-outs of a...

Cons

Purchase orders could use a bit more customizability. A few more custom fields so that we can add extra info on line-by-line basis as needed would be great.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review and feedback, Ryan. We're working on improvements to the purchase order now so that it will be more customizable. It's great to see your store growing!

When it works it's OK... when it doesn't it is a nightmare

Reviewed 2 years ago

Disappointing sums it up. They promise a lot but the problems cause huge headaches and loss of money. As I write this we have >30 POs we need to place in order to receive stock before a 4-day holiday weekend... we cannot even add a single item to a purchase order! Purchasing is a business critical function and Inventory Planner simply cannot be relied upon.

Pros

When it works it makes purchasing straightforward. The forecasting aspect works fine. It's easy to import and export purchase orders.

Cons

There are frequent periods where Inventory Planner does not sync with Shopify. At these point the system is rendered useless as data is not up to date so purchasing cannot be done without taking a huge gamble. There are periods where there is zero functionality - usually when the sync is not working. Here nothing whatsoever will correctly load. It is as if they don't have enough AWS server capacity...

Vendor response

Very easy to use. Very quick and accurate - has almost eliminated out of stock for us

Reviewed 4 years ago

Outstanding. For the price, the customer support, the training webinars and youtube videos, detailed documentation - it really is unrivalled and we have tried so many different systems. Thoroughly recommend!

Pros

It is very fast, never having to wait around for it to load up and recompute constantly. It syncs all the data in the background every few hours which means rapid use. The forecasting is top notch and takes into account so many variables, seasonality, vendor/product growth and much more and then simply advises you the amount to order. Again based on minimum order quanties, carton quantities, pack sizes...

Cons

Nothing! Genuinely nothing at all, just wish I had found it sooner.

Vendor response

Thanks so much for your feedback! We love to hear that Inventory Planner has helped to eliminate stockouts.
