InFlow has completely organized our inventory, we can easily see what we need to reorder and when we need to order it. It has saved our bacon so many times! People may forget what's been sold, but the software remembers everything! InFlow has saved us so much time, and has saved us money since now we order only what we need. We love inFlow!

Likes Least

I do wish for a few more reports, but the inFlow software is so good, that I would highly recommend it regardless. I really don't have any major issues with inFlow. It works really well. A couple of times per year I'm asked to find numbers that I haven't before, and it takes me a little while to figure out what to do, but I could always watch an online tutorial.

Recommendations

Best deal for the price. InFlow makes it easy to track inventory, easy to reorder, and easy to evaluate our yearly product flow.

Better integration with scan gun. We have an inventory sheet that we use to transfer products from our warehouse to different locations i.e., service vans, install vans. I would like to use the scan gun to do this procedure instead of manually, as its done now.

Pass all Excel inventories very quickly and manage the products in more than 5+ stores

Pros

The flexibility that gives the user, if I need a report that does not have inFlow I can export / create it to Excel.
I can also simply copy and paste data.
I currently handle 6000+ SKUs in more than 5 stores, more than 100,000+ Sales without slowing down problems, or headaches.
Thanks to this program you move from ordered storage to chaotic storage without problems

Cons

I do not have a clear disadvantage ... mmm ... I see that you can not handle products with expiration date, but that is not my item

It is an easy way to keep track of customers and it is good for giving me monthly sales and profit figures. Once I grow in confidence I am sure it will replace many of my spread sheets.

Pros

Most of it is self explanatory so I can figure out most of it on my own. I am not technically minded, so it is important that it is easy to use.
The stock control is excellent. The reports are simple to generate. It is easy to input new sales.

Cons

I am not convinced about how easy it is to change prices of products, and I have not yet figured out how to input freight prices. I had hoped to use the product to keep a check on advertising spend, but this has not been possible.

Having all inventory lists in one location

Pros

easy to use, great to have everything in the same application. Just doing the basics at the present time. Once all lists are complete, will spend more time digging into what else this program can do for us.

Cons

would like to have sub-folders within the categories. Maybe there is a way, I just haven't found how to do it yet.

As a purchaser and parts manager for over 15 years I've used several different systems. All of which were dealer software or subscription software. Inflow presents an intuitive easy to use product in a great package and with a low one time purchase price! As a drilling company we deal with a wide range of products and parts across our spectrum of equipment. Inflow's modular setup and flexible data entry allows me to easily divide and conquer the inventory control war. Quick online support with answers to even the smallest problems is great. Inflow blows the competition away!

Pros

pretty much everything

Cons

haven't found anything yet

inFlow has been a reliable tool in keeping track in our inventory, creating sales orders, invoices. We have decided to go with our own customized data base, but while we were using it, it proved useful.

Pros

Great for keeping track of inventory as you create sales orders and invoices.

Cons

Customer service wasn't always quick to respond.

Quality is tops - innovative.
Took me some time to adapt to the program in general - probably because accounting is not my field of expertise.
Found some limitations to the program e.g. limited usable space inside the remarks box of SQ to keep SQ a one pager.
Customer support superb: always helpful, friendly and gets the job done.
Currently I do not use all the features of the program hence program bit expensive for my needs - however i am excited with the scope the program offers!

Pros

A one time purchase, no recurring expenses unless additional support is required.

Cons

Slight limitations here and there based on personal needs, but I found ways to overcome those

Advice to Others

well thought out software - none at this point thanks

I have used Inflow at a previous job and when I started this job and they asked for my recommendation I suggested it partly because I already knew how to use it but also because I knew that it would be easy to integrate into our already existing business.

Not only is Inflow easy to use, but I find there's just enough customization available that it's essentially plug and play and very little set up involved other than entering basic company information and adding inventory.

Pros

Ease of use and just enough customization that you can make it your own without hours of setup time.

Cons

When initially setting up inventory I was unable to find a way to import new products from excel and simultaneously include the inventory, I found that it needed to be done in two different steps which wasn't ideal.

Advice to Others

I used this product for two years at a previous company and recently implemented it at my new position in another existing company.

This software is a great buy for the cost, I have used it for over 8 years. They have added many new features over the years to make even better. Support is Ok but getting better.

Pros

inexpensive, you keep the data base, no monthly fees. For day to day use it is bug free, does not crash.

Cons

do not like the new pay every year maintenance pay system, some bugs with current things effecting the history of the inventory.

Advice to Others

good starting inventory system, still a good buy price wise.
