Totally worth it! Migrating from spreadsheets to database was hard because it was our first time in setting up a database from scratch. No regrets.

Pros

Can build up data really quickly once you know the right documents to raise.
The chat facility is very good, normally get a response within a few minutes to a few hours.
They work Sunday's as well as through the week.
I have had chat replies at 10pm.
Really Nice people, can build up relationships with them.
Fun emojis and gifs in the chat facility.
We are now getting excellent sales/stock/turnover/Profit/location reports from the system.
Has facility to deal with serial numbers and easy to find documents relating to serial numbers.
Once you get it set up properly, it is addictive, actually wanting to input data and see the results in the reports.
The share facility to colleagues for reporting is fast and easy.
Lots more pros, but I think you will all get the idea.

Cons

If you haven't set up a database before, then there is a lot to do, and have to wait for answers on the chat facility. But they do get back to you.
No telephone customer service. Chat and email only.
Would be helpful if there was a video for set up and early use. (I think they are working on that).
Could do with being able to see serial numbers when searching to add or delete a serial number from a product.
Other small idiosyncrasies, but can quickly get used to those.

Use of an online ordering system that can be used from any location, makes taking customer orders easy and can be printed in my office without me being there

Pros

Easy to use, does all the required actions for an online ordering system and can be used at multiple locations.
Can be personalised to your own requirments

Cons

Although a deal was done regards to costs it can get a little expensive for a smaller business

Inventory Mnagement

This is a great experience to use very powerfull inventory management software.

Pros

This is the most easy and efficient software to manage inventory at different locations along with inter transfers/movement of inventory.

Cons

Inter transfer of inventory and movement of products

Good software, very helpful, though expecting more features

It's a very useful and compact software for a small company to start the business with. Though I look forward to more features and more customized controls into details. Continue evolving will ensure you to attract more potential users

Pros

Its quite easy to use, intuitive features, and has all the basic though comprehensive functionality our company needs to operate

Cons

Some of the features are basic and limited, doesn't go into details. For example, as an Admin we are limiting users(staffs) in certain controls and information on the software, however still allow them to operate at work. As for the aspect, it doesn't have enough customized controls for us to choose.
The rate is much higher than Zoho

Thank you for you review! We're constantly updating our features so we'd be glad to review any functionality related to richer user permissions and consider it for implementation. Feel free to reach out to us with details. Thank you again.

Excelent value for money

Before Megaventory we were in total darkness. Thanks to this tool we now have control over what we are buying, storing and building. Despite being a small software compared to the big ERPs, it is truly keeping us alive. There are of course many things to be improved, but it does the most important things any manufacturing company needs to have.

Pros

It is very straightforward, so the implementation time is really short. You can pretty much start using it as soon as you buy it, although of course some configuration is necessary. It has a trial version which is amazing because you don't have to sign a contract or pay upfront and only afterwards realize what the software does/doesn't do.
We like that we can manage our procurement, inventory and manufacturing from one solution and that it integrates with SolidWorks. The customer support is also amazing. They answer really fast and help us figure out how to solve our problems. They will also do customizations at request, which we have some times needed, and they delivered to our satisfaction.
In a nutshell, we are getting great value for money.

Cons

We would love it if we could have:
1. A purchase requisition process that includes manager approval (our procurement department still receives emails and spreadsheets to know what to purchase)
2. A more comprehensive AP invoice functionality. We can only record invoices that are linked to a PO/material receipt, so the rest of them (electricity bill, insurance, travel expenses) we cannot record in the system. This means we have two sources of payables and that is not good practice. :(
3. Approval limits for POs for different users. Some of our buyers should not be placing orders of more than a certain amount, but we cannot restrict that.

We have not been too deep into costing or shipping functionalities yet, so I cannot comment on those two topics.

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Replied September 2018

Thank you for your review. As already mentioned, we have taken down your requests for purchase quotes with manager approvals and order value limits for consideration regarding inclusion in our product roadmap - thank you for your suggestions! Please note that you can create a product of Product Type Service and use that to record invoices such as those you mention (i.e. insurance, expenses, etc). Megaventory is not an accounting software so if you need a proper AP management, then you need appropriate bookkeeping software So, although again we see the value of such functionality living inside Megaventory until more advanced bookkeeping features become available you can make use of Quickbooks Online which integrates with Megaventory and can fully track your AP and other bookkeeping information. Again thank you for your contribution.

Best for wholesale or retail, somewhat challenged with consignment orders

Megaventory helps me keep track of my inventory very well. I like that it can produce PO and packing slips. The customer support has been fantastic. They are quick to respond and to get anything resolved. I have a very small side business and am not using all of the features of Megaventory, but it suits my needs pretty well.

Pros

I like the reports it can produce, the customizable ways of reporting and finding information. I like the look of the layouts onscreen, they are easy to read and understand, and I like the look of the forms it produces.

Cons

Since I have some consignment clients I find it difficult to track the flow of goods out and invoiced items. My challenge is most likely in the learning curve of how to use the software rather than the software itself., but I think that it is not easy to use for consignment. Another minor thing that I find inefficient is that when I am searching and working with a certain client it doesn't always retain that if I bounce between screens and so I often have to start over in a search.

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Replied September 2018

Thank you for your review! As of recently we've updated reports to include 'Remaining to be invoiced' and 'Remaining to be shipped' items so that may be of help in your consignment business scenarios. Do let us know if it doesn't:) It's not entirely clear how the search between screens fails but we'd be glad to take a look if you'd like to send more information:) Thank you again for your time!

Effective and affordable solution

Megaventory is the perfect match for our startup. It does the smaller job at a very good price, and can grow with us for quite some time. Good support after sales.

Pros

Understandable and accessible for most. We have warehouse people who generally are not very computer-oriented and they get along fine.

Multiple languages are a plus, as we have users in multiple countries.

Readily customisable in terminology and document layout.

Great support team, quick and to the point answers. Up and running in no time.

Cons

We found a few quirks and bugs in the API, if you are planning to use it, this is something to test well before making a final choice.

Megainventory

Pros

Its user friendly. Easy to use and understand. Better customer support.

Cons

Not really least but the costing part is bit confusing. And no clarity upon it. And certain thing can be easily manipulated. Average cost is not feasible for inventory valuing. There is no proper lot numbers for p.o and work orders

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Hello, thank you for your review! We're currently actively developing the lot numbers feature so that should be addressed shortly.

Easy to use stock software system that has really helped organise my business!

Saved me time to work on other tasks. Records all purchases and sales so I can analyse data to help business grow. Easy for staff to learn and use. Lots of potential to grow with my business and use more features as I have time to find out more!

Pros

It is very easy to use, and has great help guides and customer service to help customise the software to my business needs. I am able to easily analyse my sales data from different perspectives to help my future stock ordering decisions and grow my business. It also helps me keep track of stock between my studio and the warehouse and customer sample loans. Ive also been able to set up api triggers and zaps between Megaventory and my sales platforms and accounting software which has saved time with daily tasks. it really has saved me lots of time in the long run!

Cons

It does take a bit to get used to the flow of documents and you need a bit of coding help to customise the document types and layouts - but its fine once I got used to the process. I have had small problems getting to grips with the currencies for purchases and sales data but that has all been resolved!
...Its a funny name ;)

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Replied June 2018

Thanks for your review! We know customizing document layouts can be tricky sometimes esp. for non-technical people - we have in mind a significant redesign of the feature - hopefully soon:) Currencies are tricky - again we are considering to introduce failsafes to prevent exchange related issues. Your feedback is most valuable - thank you!

Easy to use

Pros

This software is very easy to use and comes with a great help feature.
Best way to keep track of goods in hand and what product is at which client / customer.

Cons

During the setup of the products it would be preferred to have a global setting for product changes like SKU needs serial number

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Replied May 2018

Thank you for your review! In our experience it is very uncommon for ALL products in an account to need to be serialized -hence the lack of this feature. In any case, when importing products via spreadsheet it's trivial to set all products to be serialized. This doesn't prevent you from creating a non-serialized product by mistake but it does allow you to set the requirement for serial numbers in bulk. Thank you again!

Nice

Of course nothing but a very fast and reliable data. Again simple but easy to use for inventory. I can surely recommend this even to a person who just started their own business.

Pros

Aside from very accommodating Megaventory people who supported the user, the system itself is very user friendly, simple but I think for a small business like us all is there. All you need to do is continue browsing it and you could not even notice that you're enjoying using it the whole time.

Cons

So far, all I want is very accessible custom field, meaning custom field should always be in a row of any transactions such as Purchase, Sell and Inventory.

Do let us know if that doesn't cover the requested feature. Thank you again!

Solid, easy-to-use cloud-based inventory management

Pros

Fairly intuitive, well-designed user interface. Full-featured for inventory and good off-the-shelf functionality for manufacturing. Cost-effective.

Cons

May not be the best solution for complicated manufacturing workflows. Though intuitive, process flow is a little "step-heavy". Customizations or compromises may be necessary if integrating basic package.

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Replied April 2018

Thank you for your review. We have already introduced quick actions and bulk update for the manufacturing module which when the workflow allows it can take away the 'step-heaviness' you mention. Plus, more features are coming in that direction.

Difficult to use

Pros

I tried this software when I was looking for a inventory software and though it was one of the best for low budget in the number of features, I found it very difficult to use. I only liked the price.

Cons

The software is not intuitive and it takes too many turns to complete a simple task. For example I needed to upload my stock quantity in an excel sheet.
I lost my patiente 2 days after stating the trial and went to look for another one. I have years of experience with softwares, so when I have to see the help videos several times to understand how it's done, I know it's not the software for me or the regular user who doesn't like to spend 2 days on a app setup.

Response from Megaventory of Megaventory

Hi Ana, Thank you for your review first of all. We're really sorry you were frustrated in your attempt to setup your account. We are aware of the difficulty involved when it comes to handling product and stock spreadsheets and understand it can be a cumbersome process even for experienced users. We have concrete ideas how this can be addressed and we'll be evaluating them for implementation soon. Having said that, we're confident that if you were to overcome the initial stages of configuration it would be smooth sailing in operating Megaventory. We value user experience and are putting significant effort in redesigning the app - the results of this initiative will be gradually rolled out over the next months. Again thank you for your review and your feedback which we'll be taking on board and addressing.

Megaventory is very robust and comprehensive. It handles all aspects of our business.

Detailed insight into the general bookeeping and accounting of a business.

Pros

I do like the detailed inventory aspect with the software showing exactly where each product is whether in storage, sold or even returned

It is one of the cheapest options on the market and it does his job extremely well. We are a sweets confectionery start up and Megaventory offers everything we could need at this stage. The customer service is excellent.

Thank you for your review! Please be informed that any text you see in Megaventory can be changed to your preference (things like column names, field labels, button names, etc). Also, invoice headers and footers can be adapted to your preference and additional versions can be created. Finally, if these features cannot be used to implement a workaround we're open to custom development work commissioned by clients subject to certain conditions (basically that the new feature is a good fit for the technical infrastructure and the product vision we have). Hope this helps - we're at your disposal for specific requests.
