Finale Inventory is fantastic! I was especially pleased with the customer service when an error arose. They handled it professionally and honorably with placing the customer first. Very hard to find this in a company today. Highly recommend for all your inventory needs!

Pros

The ease of use , the integration with hosting site and customer service is exceptional! The layout and reporting make it easy to get all staff onboard quickly.

Cons

Not a con, but I didn't use all the features they offer. For my business, there were features that I did not need but it was great to know I could access features if needs arised.

We have yet to find anything that we don't like about this software and the support team that goes with it!

Recommendations

We recommend first talking with the team that you will work with for training and support. If you can't work with them, likely it's the wrong software for you. Then review the actual product for ease of use, power to perform above your expectations and scaleability.

I think the product is excellent. It does not try to do everything, like many products out there, it focuses on Inventory Management and does that excellently! The UI is clean and intuitive. The system is fast. It is extensive with great APIs and Reports. The customer service and support they provide is fast, kind and personal. I could not be more happy.

Likes Least

Sometimes I feel the documentation is not as clear or complete in some areas as it could be. But I send an email and get a quick response with the information I am seeking.

Recommendations

Though our business is retail, we really identify ourselves as a technology company. We had to integrate Finale into our already existing tools for accounting, invoicing, e-commerce, shipping, etc, and the team at Finale made sure our transition was smooth and stress free. Many tools promise you everything and the kitchen sink. I like to work with software that is excellent at the thing they do best. Finale is certainly one of those for Inventory Management.

It struggled with its QuickBooks integration. It had no problems pulling in the inventory but invoices and purchase orders would sometimes not move the inventory or financial information to QuickBooks.

Recommendations

Look for all possible functions that relate to your business.

Pros

It is very easy to use! When you don't understand how to do something, there are help videos for everything! It works extremely well with Quickbooks which is essential for running my business smoothly.

Cons

There is honestly nothing I don't like. The few instances that I have come across a report or screen that doesn't work exactly for my business, the team are able to make accommodations for me. The customer service is amazing!

Using the Finale inventory software with ShipStation integration has allowed our company to automate and streamline our order processing and inventory management, dramatically saving time and money. Finale does a wonderful job of allowing us to keep track and stay on top of ordering the multiple components that make up our products we sell. With a simple and direct approach, we were able to be up and running in an incredibly short amount of time. Finale's customer service has been very prompt and helpful. Highly recommend this software to anyone who is managing an inventory and looking to save time and money!

Pros

The inventory tracking is top-notch, and it's eliminated all instances of us shipping an incorrect item. The app is feature-rich, and whenever a feature is lacking, Mike & Chinh work to quickly create the functionality we've requested (when possible). They are quick to respond and help us when needed, and we look forward to using Finale for years to come!

Cons

Why spend time writing a con when we can just ask them to add a given feature? They have addressed every issue thus far.

We are using Finale Inventory to run a fireworks company and the service is outstanding! Phone support is quick and painless and the inventory is remarkably easy to use. If you have decent excel files with data, inputting your information is quick and painless.

It has already saved us countless time and trouble. I would highly recommend it as an amazing value!

Pros

Ease of importing data using Excel spreadsheets as well as the ability to link with so many other platforms.

Cons

Extra smart scanner purchase was not expected. I'd like some more functionality with a basic USB scanner directly into the software.

Thanks for working so hard to create a satisfied customer!

We have been using Finale for the past year and a half and it truly is awesome. It does take some effort to fully understand and utilize, but, it's well worth the effort.

Even better than their 5 star software is Finale's 10 star customer support. I like to believe our business has the best customer support, but it can't hold a candle to the extra mile the folks at Finale go to help their customers.

Thank you Finale for a great product and truly out of this world customer support!

It keeps track of inventory for all sales channels in one place.

Finale has worked really well for us but we are waiting on some features. Wifi syncing on the barcode devices would be great and a phone app would also really improve the experience. The ability to combine stocks together as 1 item/barcode would also be nice. However, the overall functionality is very good.

I became a new user during the most important time of the year for us. The Customer support representative at Finale went above and beyond to assist me with teaching me the key tools I would need to succeed during the first week to keep operations running until I had the time to learn the system. Throughout the past 6 months, he has answered any and all questions from the most basic to the most complex. The Finale software is very efficient for us and the service that comes with it makes it worth every penny.

Pros

Ease of use.
Design is clean.
Search function is very user friendly.

Cons

If a user makes a mistake you cannot undo the action.
Would love to be able to track our equipment with our sales.

Advice to Others

Would love to have a compatible CRM system built into Finale to manage contacts and sales more in depth.

The company I work for began using finale after a custom built program we were using failed. Finale has more than simplified the work we have to put into function efficiently. There are a couple of snags we ran into that are still under development by the engineering team. I hope to be seeing some new features in the new year. I'm very satisfied with Finale Inventory

This inventory management software is basic and simple, which is good if you are running a smaller business, or doing drop shipping on Amazon or Ebay. It is not so effective if you are shipping both domestically and DI, while utilizing a 3PL.

The finale has really allowed us to effectively manage our warehouse. We are on a service plan level that provided one on one help setting up the system and believe it was worth the extra money. WE have been using the service for almost two years and our happy on all fronts. As an FYI for us, the real part that separates Finale from other WMS systems are the handheld scanners. No other system in this price range offers this functionality and it is a great time saver. Their customer service is great but not needing to drag a laptop or a funky smartphone solution through the warehouse is a game changer. There is allot of functionality that we cannot speak to as we do not use allot of it the warehouse module is rock solid.

Pros

The handheld warehouse functionality

Cons

The lack of product filtering and grouping, Product "grids" are limited to only 4-5 filters and several of those are fixed. You also can not save searches or filtered results.

Advice to Others

Stay on a plan that has ongoing support. By speaking with my service rep about our companies needs some of what we needed was implemented making the service even more valuable to us

I love it but I really need you to be compatible with ultracart. that would save my life so much. I have to manually add it to Ultracart. It really adds to the difficulty of managing. I hope you guys are working on this because the Ultracart platform is such a great one for e-commerce I won't be leaving it. Please Please Please do it. I would have given you all five stars on everything.

Pros

My favorite part is that it tracks multiple skus from different sales channels. It is awesome. Exactly what I need.

Cons

Doesn't integrate with Ultracart. I need this badly.

Advice to Others

Integrate it with Ultracart!

We were using Wasp Inventory Control before switching to Finale and my only regret is not switching earlier. Wasp has a 1990s software feel to it. We were very limited by its clunky features and usability. The finale brought our company into the 21st century. Its simplicity has saved a tremendous amount of time. Its features allows us to be more effective with our inventory spend and helps us get products in our warehouse quicker. I highly recommend Finale.

Pros

It's web-based and easy to use.

Cons

Their support is hit and miss. I think they're a smaller company. When you can get Mike or another person on the phone, they're amazing.

Advice to Others

Use it.

We needed a program that would like to our online shipping program to track and manage our inventory. We had previously been doing manual counts with excel spreadsheets so having this makes keeping track of inventory a lot easier, more efficient and accurate. Unlike some other programs we had researched, Finale Inventory handles our 'kitting' needs without being overpriced. Customer service was on par. Highly recommended!

Pros

It is exactly what we needed. Handles all the complexities at a fair price.

Cons

A lot of initial set up on our end - but that's because of our own internal inventory issues.

Advice to Others

No
