Not much

Pros

Batch number tracking, Dashboard, Inventory tracking, easy to export to CSV and work in excel then....

Cons

too many manual work such as picking Batch number, etc... FIFO N/A, difficult to use multiple sizes (units, case, mastercase, etc..)
Support very limited, reporting quite out of date. Overall, very basic software.

We have a basic version: a month for 3 users. We don't use all the functionality of the package so perhaps I'm being a tad harsh with 3 stars, but we still have to pay.

Pros

Easy(ish) to setup. It has Clear menus and integrates with other software(we use Magento - Unleashed - Xero). The Dashboard seems good.

Cons

The integration to Xero is a bit clunky. It doesn't take across notes on a product, so our Xero invoices often need to be manually adjusted, which is not the point of integrated packages. Well known problem throughout the forums, but no solution as yet.

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

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.

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.

Unleashed and particularly Camille Joy Pineda, did an amazing job today helping us out with an incorrect data entry and set up. We were under the pump big time to get some of the work ready and Unleashed, with its simple systems and support enabled us to get it all corrected and in gear.

Cons

I would like to see clear links that link for example Purchase orders to the Sales order they were created from... this creates a traceablility in our system that is excellent and related docs can be traced.

Pros

Cloud-based, easy to use. It integrates straight into Xero (cloud-based accounting software which is awesome too). The Unleashed mobile app is good too - giving an instant look at all orders before we visit a customer. We would have died under the admin/logistics burden if we didn't have Unleashed - it allowed us to launch a new company and ramp up to annual run rate revenue in under 4 months.

Cons

It takes some work setting up the system and each new production run batch. It required a few calls with the Unleashed support team to understand how to set things up, but once done we were fine.

Unleashed indeed is on the top list of Inventory software that integrates with Xero. When we got queries from clients using Xero about a recommended inventory software, we can proudly refer to Unleashed and in many times it can meet the clients' expectation.

Pros

- It really works.
- Ease of use, Unleashed got exporting and reporting features.
- It integrates well with Xero.
- The helpful and responsive customer support.
- It got Learning & Training resources

Cons

We're looking forward to new improvements in integration with Xero.
A couple of features need to be added but these are in the pipeline.

Pros

I like the way you can get reports on every product you sell whether it be a seatcover with or without pockets.

Cons

You can't always complete an order if the materials haven't been receipted in - this means you have to go and receipt in the offending materials so you can complete it.

Unleashed had 95% of what we was looking for in a inventory control program. Very easy to use. Reports are well thought out. Easy to modify invoices and orders to our specs. Not One regret going with Unleashed software at all and is improving features ongoing.

Cons

Cannot pull up a product list with multiple items showing our selling price so takes longer to tell customers our selling price making to many clicks and backwards and forward to do a simple task.

The workflow is great making it easy to train users. I like the way you "park" sales and purchase orders. It is also easy to import data such as items, and contacts.

Many potential clients are turned away by the cost. When they compare to Xero, the cost factor often increases the client investment by 300%.

True stock control and seamless invoicing integration with XERO

Pros

It's militant about recording data. That's a good thing. You can't "fudge" the numbers.
The interface is beautiful and a good deal of the functionality works well.
For the money it's still our pick and we are glad we made the jump.
Connects with XERO pretty much perfectly.

Cons

Documentation and higher level support, particularly when it comes to API integration.
We did eventually get there... but there's a resistance to "unleash" their higher level support staff.
There are still a number of gaping holes in some of the workflow and logic, but this is being improved upon constantly.
The speed of the system could also do with some help... which hopefully some of the new money will go towards.
