Pros

Ease of Use, very good workflow especially for companies that manufacture products. Easy access from anywhere, affordable price for what we get, excellent support.
Support was terrific, I would say that they are the absolute best when it comes to support/consultation. They worked closely with me to answer every question.
It supports receiving on consignment which is one of the good features, the clipboard is also very handy when you want to select Items in past them in documents.

Pros

It is really great at helping us track our costs and meet our delivery standards. It connects natively to Shopify which is a big bonus and helps us pull for our orders more efficiently.
It's great to be able to log in on any computer without having to install software, and it's done an amazing job of keeping our inventory tidy and up-to-date.
We ran into a few hiccups at the beginning and the support team was very responsive and helpful in helping us remedy our issues.

Cons

On the downside, there is no accounting module (which we need) and we have to export our invoices and deal with accounting with another platform.
The main problem for me is the report templates for quotes and invoices layout on fields.
It's hard to say cause they strive to fix any limitation you may encounter.

Cons

It's still relatively young product and there are few features missing here and there.
A drawback is the inability to track shipping supplies, leaving those to be manually tracked for replenishment.
I've been working with manufacturing businesses for years, and for years I've lamented Xero's relatively weak inventory management system.

Solid, easy-to-use cloud-based inventory management

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Fairly intuitive, well-designed user interface. Full-featured for inventory and good off-the-shelf functionality for manufacturing. Cost-effective.

Cons

May not be the best solution for complicated manufacturing workflows. Though intuitive, process flow is a little "step-heavy". Customizations or compromises may be necessary if integrating basic package.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review. We have already introduced quick actions and bulk update for the manufacturing module which when the workflow allows it can take away the 'step-heaviness' you mention. Plus, more features are coming in that direction.

We have or base control in Megaventory, to control manufacture and multiple warehouse goods.

One of the most easy to run software that can manage inventory and create work orders for manufacturing.

Cons

The manufacturing administration of the program is not all well developed, but it works out good one e you get familiar with it.

Seamless Multiple Location Inventory Management

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall very satisfied experience. A product that adds significant value to business processes and operational management.

Pros

Megaventory's ease of use, seamless location wise reporting and great customer support makes it one of the best inventory management tool in its category. Additionally its integration with financial softwares such as QBO makes it a complete cost effective ERP system for SME's.

Cons

More flexibility is required in the manufacturing module to analyse budget vs actual costs. Processes that have continuously variable inputs are difficult to tackle in Megaventory especially when it is integrated with the financial modules.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review! We're aware of the limitations of the software when it comes to variable inputs and outputs in manufacturing - an advanced and challenging problem to solve for sure! It's a priority and we're gradually improving upon it. Thank you again:)

Excelent value for money

Reviewed 4 years ago

Before Megaventory we were in total darkness. Thanks to this tool we now have control over what we are buying, storing and building. Despite being a small software compared to the big ERPs, it is truly keeping us alive. There are of course many things to be improved, but it does the most important things any manufacturing company needs to have.

Pros

It is very straightforward, so the implementation time is really short. You can pretty much start using it as soon as you buy it, although of course some configuration is necessary. It has a trial version which is amazing because you don't have to sign a contract or pay upfront and only afterwards realize what the software does/doesn't do. We like that we can manage our procurement, inventory and manufacturing from one solution and that it integrates with SolidWorks. The customer support is also amazing. They answer really fast and help us figure out how to solve our problems. They will also do customizations at request, which we have some times needed, and they delivered to our satisfaction. In a nutshell, we are getting great value for money.

Cons

We would love it if we could have: 1. A purchase requisition process that includes manager approval (our procurement department still receives emails and spreadsheets to know what to purchase) 2. A more comprehensive AP invoice functionality. We can only record invoices that are linked to a PO/material receipt, so the rest of them (electricity bill, insurance, travel expenses) we cannot record in the system. This means we have two sources of payables and that is not good practice. :( 3. Approval limits for POs for different users. Some of our buyers should not be placing orders of more than a certain amount, but we cannot restrict that. We have not been too deep into costing or shipping functionalities yet, so I cannot comment on those two topics.

Vendor response

Thank you for your review. As already mentioned, we have taken down your requests for purchase quotes with manager approvals and order value limits for consideration regarding inclusion in our product roadmap - thank you for your suggestions! Please note that you can create a product of Product Type Service and use that to record invoices such as those you mention (i.e. insurance, expenses, etc)....

A low-drama inventory and manufacturing option for D2C brands

Reviewed 3 years ago

As a cloud kitchen and direct to consumer brand, keeping a tab on consumption was a real challenge. Other options were either for manufacturing or retail sales; Megaventory was flexible enough to be wrangled in to a solution wherein we manufactured and procured. Support was terrific, I would say that they are the absolute best when it comes to support/consultation. They worked closely with me to answer every question. Highly recommend.

Pros

* Get started quickly * Grows with you * Multiple locations * Easy to add and update data * Reliable - no outages * Integrates with Quick Books Online ( QBO) and Shopify * Amazing customer support with passionate/knowledgable agents

Cons

* Usability for a naive user could be better * Reports are not the greatest * Calculating consumption still a manual task * No option for local pricing of an SKU * Expensive for consumer play that might have hundreds of thousands of customers

Vendor response

Hey Jyotsna, thank you for your review and for your nice words about our support team. Indeed we are really passionate about operations and software and we try to help whenever possible! As for the user interface, we have designed a new user interface that will launch very soon. It is a complete revamp of the current version with many improvements.
