    Overall, for the very cheap price, this is well worth it.

    Pros

    It is very easy to use and set up. The customer support is good. It is very affordable. I really enjoy web-based/cloud systems - makes it so much easier.

    Cons

    I was under the assumption there was a free version. After actually going in and starting to set it all up, I realized it is a free trial for 14 days. I do not feel that was clearly communicated. Regardless, the cost per year is very, very cheap compared to most of the other inventory management systems out there. Also, I cannot seem to use my own templates which means I have to redo it all in Zoho.

    Pros

    We acquired Zoho Inventory through our Computer and Computing Department, which, observing the great problems that were presented to us with the classification of samples, offered this excellent tool that, complemented with other software, has substantially improved our performance at work.

    Zoho Inventory is a powerful tool that allows us an adequate and standardized classification of our chemical samples, converting them into information that can be inventoried, leaving as a result the organization that every company or corporation in charge of the chemical area wants, that is, a sample coherently organized. For this reason we strongly recommend this software.

    Cons

    A software that is constantly updated and improved, based on the observations and suggestions of its users; with a technical department of high capabilities that identify software problems and improve them in their updates, because I believe it is a software that has no weak points that have to be reviewed here.

    Zoho Inventory is a pretty good inventory management software. It helps smaller companies manage their orders and control inventory.

    Cons

    While Zoho Inventory is good it didn't quite fit our company needs. There were several features that we didn't see with Zoho.

    Ease of use for multi-channel inventory management

    Pros

    I liked how Zoho made the task of moving from one shopping channel to the next a simple process that allowed me to save time and use inventory control to increase the profit of my business.

    Cons

    Occasional issues that were solved quickly by customer service. Timing out of pages before they save, etc.

    Before using Zoho Inventory, we had a software compendium that allowed us to do the same work now, but we took a lot of time in the organization of accounting and distribution of liquefied gas. Zoho Inventory agglutinated all these functions simplifying the work of inventorying

    Pros

    Another great invention of the Zoho brand, with its inventory version, has created excellent expectations in our company, and there are many reasons.

    -Organizes in real time the stock of LPG liquefied gas in bulk, allowing us to know exactly how much product we have.

    -Elaboration of simple route guides for each of the products.

    -Organize the order, shipping, payments, and information of our customers.

    - Update the status of the order in real time

    Cons

    Like other programs of the Zoho chain, it is essential that the internet has an acceptable stability and speed, otherwise the software does not work optimally

    To manage and monitor inventory reports on a daily and weekly basis!

    Pros

    I use this software at the studio to monitor and manage inventory reports, and easily access data and plans for our daily, weekly and monthly schedules, especially delivering photographic equipment, receiving orders and monitoring the overall process.

    Cons

    The price! It could be a better deal, more cheap. I find it a bit expensive. But apart from this, I am happy with this product!

    Integrates with Zoho CRM to save time on manually entering information into invoices. Product building is a breeze and it seems to track inventory QUANTITIES accurately. Clean templates and tons of room to customize everything.

    Cons

    Uses a "physical" and "accounting" inventory valuation system, which is confusing to look at. Was recently updated and working better.

    Overall, I would say it's more useful for tracking sales and storing customer information than actual, in-depth inventory management.

    Pros

    Zoho is a great tool for tracking sales orders, SKUs, and shipments, and storing customer information. You can attach files to each order, which can be very useful when there is additional relevant documentation that needs to be referenced. Visually, it's appealing and allows for photos of each product, so you can tell exactly what products are involved at a glance.

    Cons

    There is no app that I'm aware of, which would be handy for a salesperson who's on the road. It also lacks features for more in-depth inventory management: it allows the user to track the number of items under each SKU, but lacks the ability to add serial numbers of each individual item along with details for each individual item.

    Easily manage our store inventory for furniture, millwork and accessories between team members for global programs.

    Pros

    Zoho Inventory works well for tracking orders, and monitoring your inventory stock. It is a plus that it offers connections to services such as Shopify, WooCommerce, etc.

    Cons

    Not all of the available connectors work to sync both ways, and sometimes that additional cost to connect your store with the inventory system is a hassle.

    Pros

    Web based, easy and intuitive interface. Multiple services on a single platform. Very reasonably priced. Great for small business.

    Cons

    Doesn't have all of the features that I would need. But, that is the tradeoff with the easy/intuitive nature of the software... For what it is I have no real cons.

    I can update my inventory in all of my marketplaces easily.

    Pros

    I like that I can update all of my inventory in marketplaces all at once as I have several shops. Updating products is fairly straight forward.

    Cons

    I dislike that the order screen has to be used. I don't use invoices, and I prefer to use ShipStation for my shipping as it utilizes barcodes or order tracking which is so much faster, so I don't really need anything with the order screen. I wish it just updated my inventory as sold and had the option to not even have the orders area. I'm afraid that marketplaces will be notified when I don't want them to, as they are already being notified by my other services. I'm still really trying it out, but so far it's not exactly what I need.

    Simple, and straight forward to set up and use. I think it's mainly geared to smaller businesses with simple inventory management requirements. 24 hour support from Monday to Friday.

    Cons

    Could do with more advanced features for other requirements such as 3rd Party Logistics rather than retailers.
