Value for Money

Unleashed has been a very important part of our business since we started. We use Unleashed for our manufacturing, IM and sales. It is a vital part of the ease of ordering our ingredients and packaging, manufacturing our drinks, managing our inventory, monitoring our cost of good sold and invoicing our customers. It does this seemlessly and interacts with our Xero system seemlessly - too easy. We use Unleashed in New Zealand and the UK. Recently we've been able to use the Unleashed mobile app to support our sales.

Pros

Ease of use, reliability, ease to introduce to new employees, functionality, value for money and numerous other attributes.

Cons

We're looking forward to new developments from unleashed

Value for Money

The interface mirrors that of many inventory management solutions and is easy and straightforward to use.

Pros

It's easy to use. Customer support is excellent and gives detailed, personal responses within a day.

Cons

Does not offer Amazon integration. I feel many merchants including us use Amazon, and the workarounds are very cumbersome. Creating Amazon as a customer and updating inventory everyday (including returns, unshipped products, and when Amazon just flat out loses or eventually finds lost inventory) is too tedious. Sellbrite offers full Amazon integration if you want to see how they do it.

Advice to Others

If you don't use Amazon, Unleashed can probably work for you. If you do though, it's best to look elsewhere.

Unleashed is definitely the most intuitive and accessible of the inventory / MRP systems we evaluated. It provides flexibility, and gets out of the way when needed, while also providing straightforward workflows for common tasks. A large reason for selecting it was because we could have some users (like our CEO, sales and Eng. staff) who may use the system very infrequently.

We believed that if they had to re-train on the proper workflows, they would simply avoid using the system directly, and just ask our core users to pull the information they need. As a system built for small online shops, Unleashed knows that it needs to show value, and be useful to the decision-maker AND the users of the system, since these are often the same people in such small settings.

Likes Least

Very little (if anything) to complain about so far. Some sets of data (like adding new warehouses) are not as accessible as the others.

Recommendations

1. Find a balance between the easily measurable eval criteria (cost per month, number of integrations, etc.) and the hard-to-measure, gut-feel criteria ("Is this a system that everyone will *actually* use directly?"; "Will we need to make a lot of workarounds to adapt it to our workflows?"; "Will Customer Support provide useful advice, or are they going to try to fit the round peg through the square slot?"

2. Don't settle for the first software that you demo for yourself. Try out multiple systems, to understand the nuances, strengths and weaknesses of each.

I've been using Unleashed to manage the inventory of my independent record label & mailorder. I have mail fulfillment centers in Europe & the USA now, and UNL's multiple warehouse features make managing the inventory a snap. It's also extremely handy for managing consignment deals with distributors. When they order new product, I transfer the inventory to their warehouse. And then when they report sales each month, I create an invoice. What used to be tricky & a pain to manage is now simple & clean.

Nothing bad to say at all. We really appreciate the product.

Great customer service is very important. Handling clients' needs quickly is a must.

The most valuable tool in unleashed for us is the Bill of Materials and Assembly of products. We have 6-12 variable items that go into 1 product, from the variety of honey in a blend to the type of lid applied for a certain customer. The ability to change these is simple and the system is easy to use.
Response time is also extremely important to us and the support team at unleashed is fast and effective.

Likes Least

As with most types of software - my number 1 pet peeve is the when you are in a page and you hit the back button you are taken all the way back to the beginning of the process as opposed to the last page you were on.

Recommendations

Give it a go, software is hard to get your head around unless you have jumped on in and had a go.

We had to start keeping detailed inventory about 18 months ago including serial numbers for a large vendor project we have and the spreadsheet shuffle was not helping.

Our company is required to keep the vendor pushed inventory segregated for some products configured for specific downstream locations. Other electronic products we receive have short warranty reclamation periods which cover unseen damage that may have occurred during shipping and delivery. So operating on FIFO in the past was very time consuming and some times just guess work.

After a bunch of searching and trials we selected Unleashed and since that time quarterly inventory counts are quick, easy and right every time.

Unleashed Software has saved us hundreds of hours of time and countless days of head scratching wondering which of our storage locations had some site specific equipment and when it was delivered or installed.

I'd recommend unleashed to any business owner that wants to have a granular drill down to their inventory or in our case the vendors materials we are responsible for.

I installed Unleashed Software in 2015. It has been a big improvement on our last software program because:
- it is easy to learn
- it is easy to use
- the support team are all experts and can answer even the hardest questions in a comprehensive manner
- the reporting is good
- the documents are easily customisable (i.e. purchase orders, sales invoices, picking lists, etc.)
If you are looking for a comprehensive sales, order, and inventory management go with this system.
Anyone who has had to manage a software system will often tell you that the support team is often the key to good or bad results. And on this front I have not met a better support team than Unleashed Software

Pros

The support.
Ease of use.
Learning & Training resources

Cons

Integration with Xero could be improved to be more reliable.

Advice to Others

Keep an eye on your integration panel and you should be able to ensure problems are quickly solved if they arise.

I have worked for numerous multi national businesses including Foster's, Mattel and General Mills. Unleashed is by far the best inventory tool I have experienced. It is easy to use, offers dynamic reporting features and the online support is excellent! Like anything, it can be improved further and would love to share my ideas with the team.

Pros

Ease of use, exporting and reporting features.

Cons

Order allocations should only activate when orders are PLACED. In Parked status, orders should not allocate. Once orders are Placed, the system should allow users to Place further orders if insufficient available inventory. In reporting, for example, users should be allowed to select a combination of warehouses to filter data

I have listed my 2 issues above.

We are a small manufacturer of artisanal toffee products. Our production requires meticulous traceability of inventory and lots. We have used Unleashed for several years and seen it fit all of our needs from a manufacturing standpoint. The cloud based software is intuitive (therefore easy to train) and covers many gaps that we previously had in our process. The implementation exceeded expectations and support team did as well. In particular Jared was an outstanding representative of this company.

We switched to Unleashed almost three years ago and it makes our work flow so much better. The cloud based ability to be able to use it any where anytime is brilliant. The purchasing features including landed cost gives us a true indication of cost all live.

Pros

Cloud based, instant and easy to use.

Cons

I think all computers programs have issues but nothing with Unleashed is a major issue.

Advice to Others

When changing over allow a lot more time than you think it will take as with new program it takes a while to find the short cuts.

Our team find the simplicity of use and Intergration to our Xero accounting package a huge competitive advantage.

Our business imports and sells a large range of products with many variations within similar or same categories. Inventory management is a 'sink or swim' function for our business from correct sales processess, through stock deliveries and stock take processess. A customer that receives the wrong product is an unhappy customer in a competitive marketplace. Unleashed has allowed us to swim (ahead of our competitors).

Pros

Ease of use.

Cons

Completion of sales order/quote acceptance through to Packing Slip is a bit more difficult than it could be.

Having used Unleashed for a couple of years now, I've really come to like the system. I personally find it very easy to navigate and use. There are a couple of features we would like to see implemented - quantity price breaks within a product and maybe even if a quote is accepted, that special price is then assigned to the customer. Apart from that, it's very hard to fault the system and the support provided.

Pros

Easy to navigate and use. Features like BOM really ensure accurate margin indicators.

Cons

Stop credit feature is manual - would be nice to see it talk to Xero more.

Start with a very basic one. Simple use of a WMS to support inbound, storage, and outbound. Easy to use, and quite easy to train ourselves. If I may give one suggestion, I think it's good to have 1 video that train a new user on full function using all features. It's then up to the new user which feature he/she will/won't use.

Pros

Simple and easy to use with neat UI.

Cons

Funny things going on with mathematical calculation. Eg. residual value, stock transfer issue.

Advice to Others

Full feature video training. I will then decide which one I'm going to use.
