LOCATE Feature Reviews

15 reviewers had the following to say about LOCATE's features:

Erica E.

Best option for small to medium businesses focused on growth

2020-02-07

Locate is radically different - better, IMO - from any other inventory/order management platform in it's class and a great value for the money.

Pros

Love the open API which allows us to connect with the other platforms we use.

Cons

We'd also love dashboards that gave a macro view of the company's or category's status.

LOCATE has allowed our company to grow!

2020-02-07

It has been great. When we first implemented, the person that was scheduled to come onsite and assist ended up not being able to make it (for a very good reason). We got a new person, and it was his first implementation. He did a great job, and after he left our team met every morning for a month. We made a huge list of all our questions/problems and just worked on it daily. It took us about 2-3 months to really get "comfortable" with LOCATE and really understand how it works, how changing certain things effects change in other areas, etc... Even if you don't use LOCATE, make sure to put a great team around your implementation and just keep learning it day in and day out. I've already recommended LOCATE to two other clients, and will continue to do so. They care about their clients, and keep improving their software. We receive great communication from them, and their tech support is top notch.

Pros

We now have historical data, margin reports, sales reports, and a ton more that I use *daily* as a CEO.

Cons

You are also going to have to change some of your processes as a business to fit into LOCATE (This is true with any software you use for inventory management & order processing).

Awesome software

2020-02-09

Pros

I like that it's highly customisable and caters to most inventory management needs.

Cons

It's not as intuitive as one would expect, but once you get used to using it, you'll like the software.

Moving from a complex system of spreadsheets to a WMS

2020-02-07

We are slowly getting a handle of the massive amount of data we now have with Locate and are working to pick through the reports to get the information we would like to utilize.

Pros

Inventory tracking has been a battle.

Cons

Implementation was a whirlwind, not that this is not unique to Locate. Quite a bit to absorb in a very short timeframe for everyone involved.

Great experience with a great group of people willing to work hard for their customers.

2018-06-11

We were able to combine several different systems into one software that does it all for our company.

Pros

Able to be customized for each customer. Ease of use. Combining all aspects of running a business in one program.

Cons

Can not build our own reports based on all information that is in Locate.

Review from a Bookkeepers Point of View

2020-06-07

I also like the fact that they have a way to do third-party vendors doing manufacturing.

Pros

Locate personnel helped integrate and load all existing items and inventory into the software.

Cons

The company could improve the training videos and documentation. It is difficult to find things and I had to do a lot of support tickets at first learning the system. Their support team is mostly by email. They are pretty responsive in getting answers back to you.

Great Technical Help

2020-02-07

Locate's technical support readily provided whatever information I needed to help me understand and track the information when I was new to the system, usually providing pictures to make it easier to understand.

Pros

The transparency - it is possible to track the flow in from different programs and out to different programs, something that is very important for my job.

Cons

Sometimes there isn't a feature already built-in that I might need, but Locate is always willing to take requests and suggestions from its users for new possibilities.

Mano's Wine

2020-02-07

Pros

The customer support we have received has been the best software customer support experience I have ever had.

Cons

For example, sales orders can't be edited in an issued status. This is inconvenient when a partial order goes out and you need to adjust the remaining order.

Very Good

2021-08-22

Pros

Locate save us from delays and claims. I really like the customer support. I have recommended locate to my cousin and he started to use it.

Cons

I think they can make a bot to help with steps that's hard to do instead of asking other people or calling customer service every time

We gladly switched from our old inventory software to Locate and never looked back!

2018-03-08

Drastic overall productivity spike across the board.

Pros

They are also extremely flexible with feature requests, and have a generally fast turn-around.

Cons

It is a newer company/system, which means you still find the occasional bug to squash or functionality that you need hasn't quite been released yet, but this is hardly worth mentioning when they squash bugs so fast and are willing to make customize-on-demand.

We have had a positive experience using Locate as our inventory management system.

2018-03-26

Pros

The software is friendly and easy to use.

Cons

Some simple features that would allow us to select multiple items, confirm on enter, or additional hotkeys would be very useful for efficiency
