DEAR Inventory is a Web-based inventory management software best suited for small and medium-sized organizations and designed for retailers and wholesalers. It 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 purchasing process. It also tells users when it's time to reorder stock. Organizations can see all purchase orders with specific reports for pending purchase orders and purchase cost analysis.
DEAR Inventory supports many inventory management functionalities, such as serial numbers, batch/log tracking and expiration dates. Inventory aging reports help organizations gain clear visibility into upcoming expiration dates, thus preventing waste.
DEAR Inventory can be easily integrated with accounting, e-commerce and shipment applications. It also supports integration with Xero, Quickbooks, eBay, Magento, Shopify and ShipStation.

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.
