Cin7 Software


 

Cin7 is an inventory management solution designed for small and midsize retail and wholesale businesses. It offers inventory management, point-of-sale, warehouse management and reporting functionality within a suite. The solution can be deployed both as a cloud-based and on-premise system.

Cin7 features e-commerce integration that allows users to display the accurate pricing of items based on the stock’s real-time landing price. Users can track their inventory in real time, which helps with preventing overselling and over allocation.

Cin7 offers stock reorder functionality, allowing users to create purchase orders directly from the inventory portal during an inventory shortage. The solution also features third party logistics services, which helps users ship stock from their warehouses via registered logistics companies.

With the help of customized reporting and dashboards for tracking and monitoring all the inventory data, users gain a complete view of all their warehouse and shipping activities and are better equipped to make inventory and stock level decisions.

Product with big potential, but still a prototype.

We suggest you to wait to subscribe to this product until the company is able to deliver the full functionalities they claim they offer.

Pros

Functionalities of this product are what small companies need, if only they were working.
This remains a good project on paper, and it would be great if offered for free until it is working properly to clients helping the development of a final product. Now it is working with 60-70% of the minimum required functionalities. The risks of being blocked with shipments and invoices are always there.

Cons

This is still a prototype, charged to customers as a final product, probably to finance the completion of the software development. We subscribed for a base plan and we were forced to move to premium plan. We cannot switch immediately due to the big time and money invested in setup and integration, and we will soon do it if they do not fix the issues. So far, support is not able to solve issues in real time, therefore we had and are having huge issues with customers with blocked deliveries, wrong documents (invoices and packing lists sent out). And we did not receive any refund or apology with a plan to fix issues.
Having mistakes in reporting, and official documents like prices and amount of invoices is not acceptable.

Customer service has been generally very responsive and helpful in solving problems. Most other software packages in this range barely even offer support!

Pros

The range of functionality that Cin7 offers is similar or even superior to what other platforms offer for almost twice the price. While I wouldn't call it perfect, it has definitely increased our ability to analyze our business performance and stay on top of everything on a daily basis.

Cons

As with any software system transition, there are some functionalities that you have to sacrifice to gain others. We are still adjusting somewhat to the new system, though we are definitely in a much better place than we were with our previous software package!

At tgis point, none whatsoever. Worked for a short period now that bugs are being sorted but they make it unaffordable now.

Pros

Easy to use and fearures were fairly good for the price until they are now raising monthly subscription by 43%!!!!!!!!!

Cons

We moved everything over to use them anf after 9months they are raising the price ridiculously. 43% jump. We spent countless hours and money setting up and now we will loose everything as the jump will sink any business.
There is alot of issues integrating with accounting software not talking to each other and takes them days to help you fix it.
I would suggest staing away from this terrible ridiculously over priced software!!!!!

Pros

I've used several and looked at dozens of systems in the last fifteen years, and recently switched to Cin7 for my two retail businesses - both a fusion of brick and mortar and ecommerce (using shopify platform). Cin7 is robust and well designed, and relatively easy to learn and use. Its highlight is inventory management - quite advanced, and at the same time free of unnecessary complications.

Cons

While there is a learning curve for any new software or system, Cin7 works, for me at least, refreshingly smoothly and logically. Onboarding process was efficient, and the support staff was always available to teach and answer questions.

Complete business overview and control in real time.
Stock inventory, warehouse controls, automatic purchasing, sales, point of sale for our retail stores, shopify and xero integration.

Pros

Managing our 9 retail stores and warehouse is becoming very easy. This software has given us the platform and ability to scale with ease and at pace.
The Laybye System is amazing and easy to track and use. Not many systems offer this purchase option.
Seemless integration to xero and shopify make life a breeze.
We are able to monitor each sales person in real time and look at their performances over past months with 1 or 2 clicks.
The reporting is great and the Smart Buyer software has made our lives easier.
Stock management and the integrated warehousing is just awesome. We track every stock movement and know exactly where it is, down to the exact shelf at any given time.
An awesome product that keeps getting better and better.

Cons

Being in South Africa some times support takes awhile.
Small things change on updates sometimes throwing the entire system out which results in a week or two of waiting for fixes. They seem to be getting better at this.
Full integration has taken awhile but that is due to our complex business and the fact that we are learning and using every function Cin7 offers. We will never look back!

Flexible and helpful staff have been a huge benefit. It often makes the difference between success and failure in my domain.

Pros

What I like the most about CIN7, besides the simple layout and ability to integrate and adapt as our business expands, is the customer service and tech support. I am not a tech savvy person, but with the expert guidance and help of CIN7's heroic support staff, even I am able to use this system! To say she has been patient with me would be a great understatement.

Great software, great price, amazing customer support. What else do you need?

Cons

I have no real complaints to add here. If pressed to find something, I could say that because they are in New Zealand, there is a time delay for certain communications. Not their fault, I choose to live in Canada!

Recently interfaced into Shopify to get off their B2B platform and works well.

The product is lacking development as most of the development seems to be into interfacing into other channels.
POS system is very poor.

Pros

Integration via apps. Ready made solutions have the potential to cut down on problem solving time for clients.

Cons

Some simple options aren't currently available for development. Order data exported into comprehensive spreadsheet templates to move orders lists to courier portals isn't an option. Streamlining processes can often include avoiding third party apps like StarShipIt and just exporting data into a required template to move straight to a courier portal is a source solution which isn't an option with Cin7 at the moment.

Pros

My business requires detailed inventory mgmt down to batch tracking and expiry dates. Cin7 provides this in a very simple and easy to use way. In addition the fully integrated B2B ordering site and pivot table reporting adds significant value to my business. These functions are easy to use and quick to set up. Business processes such as calculating accurate landed costings is also easier than before. Cin7 provides more value that larger ERP solutions that I have used in the past. However what exceeded my expectations was the onboarding support to help me seting the Cin7 business up to best suit my business. Thank you support team! I have no hesitation recommending Cin7.

Cons

Cin7 allows you to structure and group your products to multiple sub category levels, however the reporting function currently does not all you to report on all the subcategory levels - but I'm sure they will fix this in time.

Technical support is excellent - very reliable and always willing to assist us in creating solutions to meet our needs as the business has grown.

Many of our sales are made-to-order, so it would be very useful if our production team were able to highlight and flag orders, and to have pop-up reminders.

Pros

I was a bit intimidated by Cin7 at first since I'm not very proficient with software programs in general. But after an initial brief training session, Cin7 was not nearly as intimidating as I expected. It streamlines a lot of information that previously was very difficult (if not impossible) to access and opens up new possibilities for our company which broaden our scope and increase our efficiency. Having worked with an older system way past its prime, I wasn't aware of the enormous potential offered by a program like Cin7. Maybe there are others like it out there but for now we're thrilled to have chosen Cin7. It meets our needs (and more!) and we look forward to pursuing the many new opportunities it has opened up for us. Thank you Cin7!!

Cons

I haven't used Cin7 long enough to have experienced any problems with the program. I understand we need to customize some areas but that's to be expected with any new program.
