GetApp’s Integration Leaders in Inventory Management

What we'll cover

Software integrations form an indispensable part of the IT strategy of most businesses. Not only do they foster seamless information flow between applications, but they also boost process efficiency, increase data visibility, and consolidate disparate information sources. 

When it comes to integration potential, all software solutions aren’t created equal. Some tools are clear winners and can integrate with a variety of solutions, while others integrate with only a handful. 

Analyzing products on their integration capabilities can often be challenging or effort-intensive for software users like you. We’ve compiled a report to help you access relevant integration data for the inventory management category.

With this report, we aim to guide you in selecting an inventory software tool that offers maximum integration potential. We analyzed integration data for some of the highest-rated products on the market and compiled our findings into this report. (View the complete selection methodology for these products at the bottom of this page.)

The Integration Leaders grid above showcases products with the highest integration scores based on user reviews on GetApp. (See the complete report methodology at the bottom of this page.) 

On the grid, products are arranged in increasing order of their overall ratings (bottom to top) and integration scores (left to right). That means products higher up on the grid have higher overall ratings and products toward the right have higher integration scores. Therefore, products in the top right zone of the grid rank higher in overall ratings as well as integration scores compared to other products on the grid.

Most common app integrations

It can be challenging to figure out which tools a software product integrates with. Software providers may not explicitly mention this information on their product websites or that information may be buried on a webpage. 

In this section, we talk about the specific integration capabilities of GetApp’s Integration Leaders. 

We’ve built a matrix that allows you to compare how well our inventory management Integration Leaders play with popular apps such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Time Doctor, Slack, and Harvest. For the sake of comparison simplicity, we’ve divided these apps into three categories: eCommerce, accounting, and billing and invoicing.

  • eCommerce: The table below highlights collaboration tools that integrate with the products featured in our inventory management Integration Leaders report. According to our research—based on information gathered from vendor websites and other publicly available sources—Shopify, WooCommerce, Magento, BigCommerce, and Squarespace are the eCommerce solutions most commonly integrated with inventory management software and, therefore, have been used for comparison.

  • Accounting: The table below highlights popular call center tools that integrate with the products featured in our inventory management Integration Leaders report. According to our research—based on information gathered from vendor websites and other publicly available sources—QuickBooks Online, Xero, and Avalara are the accounting solutions most commonly integrated with inventory management software and, therefore, have been used for comparison.

User review excerpts

To help you understand how reviewers feel about Booqable’ integration capabilities, here are some excerpts from the most positive user reviews mentioning integration on GetApp:

"I love how easy to use this software is and it meets all of my business's rental needs. The payment and return feature is great. The integration into the website is super helpful. Taxing and security deposits and all of the settings for the rentals are also very easy to adapt to the needs of your specific business."

"Online store was a must.  There's very few affordable packages that do this so that really narrowed the field which is surprising because it's 2020 not 2005.  It's very easy to use, looks modern,  is easy to read & works the way you expect. Barcoding is a great feature. The Pro subscription has unlimited products & 5 users which is just right for our company.   My warehouse manager loves it too.   Support has been excellent & I was able to integrate it with my Wordpress site."

"We love the ease of use for the product and how responsive the creators have been. We joined early in the process, and have seen new features and developments roll out regularly. It integrates well with our site (unlike other programs) and when we compared the cost to other options, booqable came out an easy winner!"

Report methodology

Integration Leaders reports highlight top-ranked products based on ratings from end users. Products are scored on two dimensions: integration score and overall rating.

  1. Integration score is calculated based on the sentiment of user reviews that describe a product’s integration capabilities, based on our proprietary assessment.

  2. Overall rating score is calculated based on the overall user ratings for each product. Newer ratings are weighted more heavily.

Data sources include approved user reviews, public data sources, and data from technology vendors. Please refer to the GetApp Community Guidelines for more information.

To be eligible for inclusion in a category, a product must meet the following criteria:

  • Have at least 20 unique product reviews published on GetApp within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report.

  • Achieve a minimum normalized overall rating (as of March 2022).

  • Have at least 10 unique product reviews that discuss the quality of that product’s integrations with other products.

  • Achieve a minimum positive sentiment score for reviews that describe integrations, based on our proprietary assessment.

  • Show evidence of offering required functionality as demonstrated by publicly available sources, such as the vendor’s website.

 The matrix table showing each product’s integrations with the most commonly integrated apps in the market is supplemental; that data does not factor into a product’s qualification for, scores in, or placement on the Integration Leaders chart.

The data used in the matrix table was collected from vendor websites and other publicly available data sources. Individual integration capabilities were not evaluated by the GetApp team. The data is believed to be accurate at the time of publication, but readers should note that vendors will continue to expand and change the integrations they offer over time. Our reports will not reflect such changes in real time; such changes will be reflected if and when we update the report in the future.

The review excerpts provided are based on what users liked about the integration functionality/ability of the product within 24 months of the start of the research process for a given report. Review excerpts are passages extracted from longer reviews written by verified reviewers. We obtain these excerpts by applying an algorithm that considers factors including, but not limited to, word count and topic coverage. Excerpts are evaluated for positive or negative sentiment and receive a sentiment score. We are only highlighting excerpts with the highest positive sentiment scores in this document.

Excerpts represent user opinion and do not represent the views of, nor constitute an endorsement by GetApp or its affiliates. Excerpts are not edited for clarity or grammar.

Disclaimer

At GetApp, we objectively select and rank products based on a methodology developed by our research team. Some vendors pay us when they receive web traffic, but this has no influence on our methodology.

We conducted this analysis based on reviews and ratings data as of March 2022. In order to present the most up-to-date information, the product cards above show real-time ratings. Please note that this means the ratings value in the product card may not reflect the ratings value at the time of analysis.

The full text of the reviews excerpted are from published reviews on GetApp.com for the associated products on the date this content was published. GetApp makes no guarantee that the reviews will remain posted for the entire period this report is active.
