Pros

I've been super happy with it and their product only gets better and better as more third-party companies have smooth integrations.
Most satisfied software and the website ever,categories and edditing methods are perfect and easy as nothing,even for a person who dont know about website creating, im satisfied.
Good, I have recommended it to multiple friends. I think it could use some updating but overall it's a great startup for businesses.

Pros

Secondly, the support we get from the team is outstanding. Rep has been available to resolve issues and any and all tweaking is possible to do with ease with him.
Great customer support, the implementation team took good care of us and answered our questions quickly and efficiently. They were patient and gave clear explanations.
Great reporting capabilities. Customer service has been amazing and our implementation specialist has been a dream to work with.

Cons

Was not very much support on the stubborn aps that refuse to leave when you delete them.
Sometimes on the app I have trouble tracking my package either error from the sending company or from the something on my end in not understanding the app to it's fullest.
Bad practice, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. No other company does that.

Cons

Stock sync is a mess, keeps zeroing out our Shopify stock. Uploading from Cin7 to Shopify is impossible, we tried and lost all our store listings took 5 days to re-enter the data.
Zero compensation for lost data which was only one of the issues with bugs.
9 months on, and still no end in sight to the implimenttation process, with one team member blaming another, or a different department being the common issue.

Looks Decent, Will Have to See When Up and Running

Reviewed 4 years ago

So far it looks promising and support is working with us to tackle problems we're having with Shopify tax solutions, and Commission Rep reporting features as well was discount issues within the B2B platform. Once these are resolved I expect it will meet our needs. We hope to have our warehouse needs met by Jan 1, and our B2B platform ready by Feb 1. Until we launch and have been using for a bit, we can't give more stars - but we're optimistic it will be suited to our staff and customer needs. The layout seems user-friendly, as always with a big system change over - the headaches lie within the setup.

Pros

User Friendly

Cons

Integration problems are taking something to set up with Shopify

Vendor response

Hi Brad, thank you for the overall 3 star review! We hope your on boarding experience has been great and that everything is now resolved. We look forward to the continued support and value you as a customer.

We have been with cin7 for 5 months now and so far we love it. The program is simple and easy.

Organization Integration with Shopify B2B website for our wholesale customers

Pros

We like the simple organization of everything with-in the system. Very self explanatory. There's so many opportunities with cin7 to be able to keep track of information and manage inventory. When we joined we had no idea how much cin7 really had to offer. From the B2B site to the easy integrations with our website, we are definitely a satisfied customer.

Cons

I wish there was the ability to make items a different price within a size grid. For example our shirts we get in sizes X-Small to XX-Large and our XX-Large shirts cost more so the only option I have is to create another product for the XX-Large or just take note of it elsewhere for book keeping. Also it would be great to see an option that allows you to discount your products and it get pushed over to our integration which is shopify.

Vendor response

Thank you Taylor for your review and feedback on Cin7. We have submitted this request to the product team. They prioritise these requests based on demand. All new features will be published on our website at https://help.cin7.com/updates. We really appreciate your positive feedback!

Taking us up a step

Reviewed 6 months ago

Good. We were assigned [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] who was extremely response, knowledgeable and great to work with. She was very patient as we only have a small and not particularly experienced team so were on a steep learning curve.

Pros

The capacity to allow us to grow internationally and integrate with all our existing platforms

Cons

Not all automated eg need to push through changes to Shopify (but that is easy enough to manage)

Vendor response

Hi Clare, Thank you for your review, we are pleased to know our software and service have met your business requirements! Thank you for being a Cin7 customer! Sincerely, Erin (Marketing Team)

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

CIN7 help us to manage the wholesale and eCommerce inventory effectively. It integrates with Shopify and Xero. Now all prodcuts and inventory data are centralised in CIN7.

The steps of product mapping between CIN7 and Shopify takes too much time. The process can be simplified.

Great System for Small Business

Reviewed 2 years ago

Has been great. Very hands on from our side but Cin7 support were there to show us where the resources are to be found.

Pros

I love that Cin7 is cloud based, integrated well with Shopify and is relatively easy to use.

Cons

Some inventory control functions are a little simple. Some areas of the system are very flexible which is great as a manager but is too easily edited by other staff.

Great customer service and have options to add on-call support

Pros

I like the fact that it integrates with Xero and Shopify and that you can also set up websites through it

Cons

It can be a bit tricky to set up, need more people able to implement in the South Island.

Cin7

An amazing system with awesome functionality. It has taken us awhile but it has revolutionized us!

Reviewed 4 years ago

Complete business overview and control in real time. Stock inventory, warehouse controls, automatic purchasing, sales, point of sale for our retail stores, shopify and xero integration.

Pros

Managing our 9 retail stores and warehouse is becoming very easy. This software has given us the platform and ability to scale with ease and at pace. The Laybye System is amazing and easy to track and use. Not many systems offer this purchase option. Seemless integration to xero and shopify make life a breeze. We are able to monitor each sales person in real time and look at their performances over past months with 1 or 2 clicks. The reporting is great and the Smart Buyer software has made our lives easier. Stock management and the integrated warehousing is just awesome. We track every stock movement and know exactly where it is, down to the exact shelf at any given time. An awesome product that keeps getting better and better.

Cons

Being in South Africa some times support takes awhile. Small things change on updates sometimes throwing the entire system out which results in a week or two of waiting for fixes. They seem to be getting better at this. Full integration has taken awhile but that is due to our complex business and the fact that we are learning and using every function Cin7 offers. We will never look back!

Vendor response

Hi Greg, thank you for the overall 5 star review! It's great to hear that Cin7 has helped you be able to manage your 9 retail stores and warehouses. We look forward to the continued support and value you as a customer.
