DEAR Inventory is a web-based inventory management software for small and medium-sized retailers and wholesalers. The product features modules such as e-commerce, manufacturing, purchasing, sales, inventory management, and accounting.
DEAR Inventory allows businesses to create, plan and track each phase of the purchasing process. The solution reminds users to reorder stocks in time to avoid a situation of stock-out. Organizations can see all purchase orders with specific reports for pending purchase orders and purchase cost analysis. The software records supplier-purchasing history along with product cost to help the user make an informed decision about purchasing next batch of products. The manufacturing module tracks the cost of raw materials and labor and creates a multilevel bill of materials/ subassemblies.
DEAR Inventory supports many inventory management functionalities, such as serial numbers, batch/log tracking and expiration dates. Inventory aging reports help organizations gain visibility into upcoming expiration dates of products stored in a warehouse.
DEAR Inventory integrates with accounting, e-commerce, and shipment applications like Xero, QuickBooks, eBay, Magento, Shopify and ShipStation.

I've been using DEAR to manage my inventory and integrate the system with Xero and Shopify. The integration setup is so easy and you don't even need an adviser to perform those set up for you. Before when I just have Shopify alone, doing a manual update of stocks is really a pain which causes some loss and might even result to losing your customer. Their integration works perfectly, I can create my products variation and listed on Shopify real time, orders and fulfillment process is very smooth and I can even add multiple Shopify shop integrated, that's really a cost saving feature. I would highly recommend this system.

If you really need a system that does not require additional cost for a features to be included or added on your business. Dear is perfect for you, treat the software as an investment.

Dear Inventory integrates with QuickBooks Online and Vend POS as well as several other software solutions to make the workflows for a small retail business much more automated. It is robust enough for our furniture store to manage inventory, keep up with landed cost of merchandise, and much more. Being cloud-based allows us to access the system from anywhere, and it is pretty easy to set up once you understand how it works.
The only support that seems to be available is through a ticket system, but they do respond pretty quickly when you submit a request.
Take advantage of the free trial and thoroughly test the software to make sure it has the functionality that you need. Test the integrations to make sure they perform as expected because some companies advertise integrations with other software, but they are not very robust.
