I love this software for inventory management. It's easily customizable and very user-friendly. Their are many great features for all company types and the support team is wonderful.
I've dealt with a little bit of lagging and a glitch or two, but for the most part FlowTrac's overall software is great.

I like this product is easy to understand and work! They made it something that you can just pull up and work it without having much experience with it.
I dont like how it kind of glitches sometimes. Also i dont like how when you need to search for something it takes it a while to pull up
Boris from CIEL Capital
Flexibility of the platform and customer support team on discussing new changes.
Time to completion for individual tasks depending on staffing availability. The help system is not well-developed and need to learn through webinars and sessions with FT staff or on your own.
The base product is versatile and customizable. We went into the project understanding that many customizations would be required based on the nature of the portfolio business where we planned on using FT. Realizing the degree of customizations required and scoping out the majority of the modifications ahead of time have been key to successfully moving the project forward.
We proactively engaged the FT team in brainstorming better solutions together with us to avoid cumbersome and costly modifications.
We found conversations with other FT users very useful and helpful in understanding how to best manage the project.
Dean from CAM Audio, Inc.
Quality product, easy to use, knowledgeable personnel that you feel they know you and your business
Have not always been successful using the support ticket system
Try hands-on prototype to be sure the "fit" and talk with others in similar businesses.

It provides us with a direct connect in conveying our programming needs to FLOW. It also enables the requestor to include others in communications regarding both issues, status, and follow-up.
not applicable....the product works well as a communication portal to our vendor.
I don't have any recommendations for others in terms of evaluating programmed software. Each company and individual has different evaluation methodologies. I am not an expert....
Brian from Autry Technology Center
FlowTrac customized their program to work for our organization. With their help, we have taken a very time consuming process and minimized the effort needed to account for our schools inventory. We have achieved accuracy and efficiency in a process that was the largest source of frustration and anxiety for our staff.
They use JIRA for communication. This is an effective tool for tracking projects, but it was a little more difficult to express what needed to be customized.
This software is simple and effective. Many inventory programs are canned and built for the most complex application. FlowTrac was able to pullout just the things we needed to provide a great easy to use product.
Mick from Texas Tool Traders
Flexibility and robustness. The product can easily be customized to fit your specific needs and give you all the inventory tracking information you need to manage movement and status.
Not to be too biased but there in nothing to dislike.
Have a good idea as to what you want and need, then document the process with the vendor creating a road map for all to follow.
Mark from Tidewater
Specialty: Cargo & Freight
Really like the flexibility and custom ability of the Flowtrac software.
I was putting in a lot of request for new work and it took a bit to get enough people on my project.
Really look at the technology that the software is built on. We found other stuff cheaper but the technology was old.
Marsha from Lee Roy Jordan Lumber Company
Our company has been with Flow since 1996 and we have referred them to several of our customers. They continue to grow and change as we continue to grow and change. Their custom work puts them many steps ahead of the other software programs developed for our industry. Flow has never failed to produce the programming to handle our issues as we have grown, and makes suggestions for improvements that prove to be invaluable.
I would refer Flowtrac to a customer or friend without reservation.
Michelle from TranSpec Fasteners Inc
This software is great! You are able to access so many programs with a click of a button. Orders are linked from beginning to end. End of month processing takes minutes vs hours. Highly recommend this software/company. You will not be sorry!!!
Don from Tim Plastics, Inc
Tim Plastics makes approximately one million bottles every day ranging from 1 ounce to 2 gallon. The rapid growth of our business had overwhelmed the ability of our existing systems to keep-up. We needed a system to manage order entry, production, inventory, and outgoing shipments at our multiple locations. Since many of our bottles are used for pharmaceutical or food packaging we must maintain very accurate shipping records and provide detailed paperwork.
Flowtrac gives us the ability to track orders, production needs, inventory, and outgoing shipments. The system generates all the detailed paperwork required for any shipment. We are able to know exactly where every bottle we produce has been shipped. The data on Flowtrac also allows us to track customer trends and better understand where our business is going.
Jeff from Anthian

Kari from The Salvation Army- Metro Atlanta
After months of working with FlowTrac to build our registration system for The Salvation Army's Angel Tree Program, we are extremely pleased with the final results. The system is user friendly, all-inclusive of everything we need, and leaps and bounds above our previous system. The program saved us so much time and energy and our stress levels were significantly decreased during Angel Tree season! The team at FlowTrac constantly gave us peace of mind whenever we were concerned about various aspects of the system and made sure everything functioned as needed, even when there were tight deadlines. They were quick to offer suggestions to improve the site and were eager to make the system the best it could be. All in all, FlowTrac and the system they created met our high expectations and we would gladly recommend other companies to work with them as well.
Alisha from J & E Aerospace
System works great, sales on my end is much easier. I have good history at my fingertips. I like the traceability when customer calls in, all info is ready and available in seconds.
