Pros: I like that I can keep all my inventory up to date as well as do Purchase Orders and Sales Quotes all from the same program!!

Overall: Keeping my inventory up to date and submitting Purchase Orders.

I started with the free version and last month moved up to a paid version. It does everything I need

Pros: Most of it is self explanatory so I can figure out most of it on my own. I am not technically minded, so it is important that it is easy to use.
The stock control is excellent. The reports are simple to generate. It is easy to input new sales.

Cons: I am not convinced about how easy it is to change prices of products, and I have not yet figured out how to input freight prices. I had hoped to use the product to keep a check on advertising spend, but this has not been possible.

Overall: It is an easy way to keep track of customers and it is good for giving me monthly sales and profit figures. Once I grow in confidence I am sure it will replace many of my spread sheets.

The best user interface and nearly perfect software except for 1 thing.

Pros: The user interface lets you get so much more done with less clicks, I've tried out other inventory solutions and can say InFlow is just the best.

Cons: When creating a purchase order, you cannot enter the subtotal of a product and have inflow automatically calculate the cost per item. You have to calculate it yourself, and when you do inflow only stores the last few digits after the decimal point so if you put $0.0003338 inflow will store maybe $0.0003 which makes the calucations off. And after you mark the purchase order as paid and go back to it later, it'll re-calculate automatically and start asking you to "pay the remainder". This is what breaks inflow.

Overall: Ease of use, saved me time, helps me breeze through taxes, calcaultes cost of inventory, this software saved me. Just 2 days before taxes were due. I plugged in all my receipts and calculations from the past 3 years and inflow perfectly gave me back the numbers I needed to finish my taxes. And the calculations even matched the previous years I had filed. So i knew it was perfect.

It's great

Pros: easy to use, great to have everything in the same application. Just doing the basics at the present time. Once all lists are complete, will spend more time digging into what else this program can do for us.

Cons: would like to have sub-folders within the categories. Maybe there is a way, I just haven't found how to do it yet.

Overall: Having all inventory lists in one location

It is pretty good other than few things that you cant customize.

Pros: The layout is excellent and its really easy to use. The return value is over satisfactory for the amount of money paid

Cons: Custom purchase order or any other custom documents cant be saved directly to different format (eg Pdf) unless opened in word and then saved manually.
The email set up does not really works if the email id is company based and not standard

Pros: pretty much everything

Cons: haven't found anything yet

Overall: As a purchaser and parts manager for over 15 years I've used several different systems. All of which were dealer software or subscription software. Inflow presents an intuitive easy to use product in a great package and with a low one time purchase price! As a drilling company we deal with a wide range of products and parts across our spectrum of equipment. Inflow's modular setup and flexible data entry allows me to easily divide and conquer the inventory control war. Quick online support with answers to even the smallest problems is great. Inflow blows the competition away!

Recommendations to other buyers: it took a little bit of searching to find you guys in a big pile of other lesser products

Cons: Customer service wasn't always quick to respond.

Overall: inFlow has been a reliable tool in keeping track in our inventory, creating sales orders, invoices. We have decided to go with our own customized data base, but while we were using it, it proved useful.

Pros: A one time purchase, no recurring expenses unless additional support is required.

Cons: Slight limitations here and there based on personal needs, but I found ways to overcome those

Overall: Quality is tops - innovative.
Took me some time to adapt to the program in general - probably because accounting is not my field of expertise.
Found some limitations to the program e.g. limited usable space inside the remarks box of SQ to keep SQ a one pager.
Customer support superb: always helpful, friendly and gets the job done.
Currently I do not use all the features of the program hence program bit expensive for my needs - however i am excited with the scope the program offers!

Recommendations to other buyers: well thought out software - none at this point thanks

At lease s/w must have to have pre define few user roles with different access rights.

Pros: Ease of use and just enough customization that you can make it your own without hours of setup time.

Cons: When initially setting up inventory I was unable to find a way to import new products from excel and simultaneously include the inventory, I found that it needed to be done in two different steps which wasn't ideal.

Overall: I have used Inflow at a previous job and when I started this job and they asked for my recommendation I suggested it partly because I already knew how to use it but also because I knew that it would be easy to integrate into our already existing business.

Not only is Inflow easy to use, but I find there's just enough customization available that it's essentially plug and play and very little set up involved other than entering basic company information and adding inventory.

Recommendations to other buyers: I used this product for two years at a previous company and recently implemented it at my new position in another existing company.

Pros: inexpensive, you keep the data base, no monthly fees. For day to day use it is bug free, does not crash.

Cons: do not like the new pay every year maintenance pay system, some bugs with current things effecting the history of the inventory.

Overall: This software is a great buy for the cost, I have used it for over 8 years. They have added many new features over the years to make even better. Support is Ok but getting better.

Recommendations to other buyers: good starting inventory system, still a good buy price wise.

Pros: Affordable, stable, reasonably intuitive

Cons: support

Overall: The software is pretty good. I have issues with how it's set up by default, so if you have dodgey internet, right after install you'll have to make the database available off-line. Very intuitive, but the programming is a little tricky and if you ask the support team to help with renaming fields or making adjustments to the software all they'll do is forward documents so you can do it yourself, which I think is pretty piss poor. Otherwise it's fine, stable, and affordable.

Pros: Ease of use, customer support

Cons: Changing the invoice look and feel, the online system

Overall: For what I pay for this I am very happy. The saying you get what you pay for, well it does not apply here. The makers of inFlow have amazing support and are working hard to make this a great product for the little guy as well as the large company.

I know that all of the bugs will never be gone 100% and to think that they will by anyone is foolish. That is the only reason I gave 2 of the 4 items the 4 stars. There are a few issues that need attention and they are working hard on them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the hard work and this will be better than quickbooks and much more affordable. Give us more freedom to customize the look and feel of the emails, such as our out signiture lines

Pros: Easy to use and not hard to learn out to navigate your way around.

Cons: Can only axcess yo it to the desktop or lab top computer you have it installed to.

Overall: So far I have no complaints. Except for one. Wish it has easy axcess to a tablet or mobile device for example. So when you away from the computer and want to do like a quick inventory count or something. Even look up something up for a customer to see if we have it in stock/more detail info without running back to a desktop everytime. You can just axcess right from the handheld device to make any changes right there as your in the stock room doing some work. Instead of have to print out like a count sheet every time and then go back and make adjustments. Which takes more time and waste paper in the long run. Even if it's just app to the program so can least make adjustments on frieght or look up info for a customer from a a tablet/mobile device.

Pros: Easy to set up and maintain. I like the dashboard feature a lot.

Cons: Was a bit difficult to adjust inventory as I was setting it up. Wasn't clear on how to adjust something without starting over. The reports could be a bit more user friendly. Took me a while to figure out how to find the ones I wanted.

Overall: Love the program so far. I'm an office manager for a doctor's office and we sell vitamins and it was easy loading our inventory and it's made it a lot easier to track what comes in and what is sold. Customer support has been great answering our questions as well.

Comments: We are a small, rapidly growing business. We needed to do something about our inventory management. But we didn't want too much. We just wanted the necessities. We found that in inFlow. Everything you need--and nothing you don't. It took us weeks of looking to finally come across inFlow. Every other package we downloaded and tried either 1) didn't really do very much or 2) seemed to require a CS degree to use. inFlow is very "user friendly," as they used to say. Intuitive is a good word. Organized well. Makes sense to me as a small business owner. I mean, how hard is it to come up with a software package that lets you keep track of what you have in inventory, the velocity it's going out, and alert you when you need to reorder--without a whole bunch of other "noise"? It doesn't seem like rocket science. But as far as we could find, inFlow is alone in this space. And when we had an issue with restoring a backup, customer service was great! Cassandra helped me. She was friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. She got me back on track within a few minutes. We. Love. inFlow.

Comments: We have been using InFlow for many years. Overall InFlow is a good software, but the licensing is much to be desired for small companies. If you have 1-3 people in your business, I would stay away from InFlow as it will cost you a fortune to purchase not to mention maintain. For example, I am a 1 person operation who is selling online. I have a computer in my office and a computer in my shop. I process payments and orders in my office, then I go out to my shop and package and ship orders. Since you are not allowed to run InFlow on 2 computers at the same time, unless of course you pay another $399 per license, I have to remember to shut InFlow off in my office before I go out to my shop otherwise it don't work. I find myself having to write everything down on paper when I forget to shut inflow off, I am a single user so I should not have to shut it down to use it on another computer within my organization, that's not what inventory management is supposed to be about.

If your business has 1-5 people, I would highly recommend that you look at other versions before purchasing InFlow, even the big commercial ERP programs are less expensive overall and have far more features.

The rep I dealt with - Yun, was terrific. She endured my sarcasm with poise and grace and got me up and running in a hurry. I just wish other customer service people (and places) were half as fast and half as good as she is. Even if the product has some flaws that others might point out I would use it just because of my experience with her.

Comments: We have been using InFlow inverntory software since 2007 and it has proven to be the most reliable, user-friendly, and costs saving software tool to manage our inventory, sales and purchase all together.

Tough we are Linux users, we have been working InFlow software on a virtual machine without any problem.

We have been spreading the word about the huge benefits InFlow Inventory software offers to any businness, wether it is a small business or a large one. Even the free version offers a marvelous solution for small or medium sized business.

It's user intuitive, its learning curve is smooth and anyone with a small training can use it properly. Add to the later, that you can find lot of help from training materials provided by "InFlow Team", as well as the helps and tips form the users community.

Simply put: An amazing tool to make purchase orders, quotations, inventory management, business analisys and evaluation, and a lot more!

Thank you very much for give us this outstanding software to improve our business operation and cost saving strategies. Good work team, keep it going!

Comments: Inflow has allowed us to track our inventory, more easily track our purchase orders and invoices to customers. I love the feature that I can email an invoice to a customer right from inflow.
The only cons would be that you can't print the bill to address on a packing slip which can be confusing to our customers at times. Inflow previously had the option to enter the tracking number for an order but that went away with the new version unfortunately.
Otherwise I love inflow and will continue to use inflow for a while to come

Comments: Our company was looking for a cheap Inventory software to control our buses parts inventory. It is not a big inventory then Inflow is the perfect software for our company. We can make many reports that can help us to control the inventory. In addition Inflow is cheapest inventory software that we could find.

Comments: One glaring omission inFlow has is that if the inFlow servers go down, you're down. Regardless of how much you paid for your "Premium License". The software pings the licensing server for inFlow each time you log in to allow you the functinality you've paid for. In the event their server is down, you are SOL. I'm in this position right now. So please rethink your commitment to inFlow based on this scenario. If you're just dabbling in a business then go for it; in the event that you need to access your software and the functionality you paid for - beware.

Vendor Response

by Archon Systems on November 13, 2015

Thanks for the honest feedback, Michael. I'm really sorry for the experience you're having today. The service has just been restored and we'll be following up with anyone who was affected by the outage shortly. The system is designed to keep working even if our servers go down, so now that the immediate issue has been addressed there will be more permanent changes put in place to ensure this doesn't reoccur. Thank you again, and looking forward to speaking with you. Siobhan (Community and Support Manager, inFlow Inventory).

Comments: When it comes to keeping tracking of your inventory and all that precedes that, you want a simple to operate system. I started using other "quick" booking software but to me it was very complicated and required a learning curve. With inFlow, it was much easier to get started and the helpful staff was able to answer my questions with a quick email reply or looking in their troubleshooting page. There are different levels and prices, so you can find one that fits your need easier. I recommend inFlow.

Comments: I've been using the system for 3 years now. It's been perfect for my use, the couple of little glitches I see within the system for my uses include: 1) It is difficult to charge for something and be able to track it without putting it in your inventory, for example if I order in a specialty item, I don't want it in my inventory as an item, but I do need to put it on a bill. 2) Even after deactivating certain items, they still pop up every now and then while trying to bill. I've had really awesome help any time I've had an issue.

Comments: Pros: clean layout, easy to update, user friendly purchase order and sales order setup, multiple ways of tracking and reviewing product/customer history, dependable program for everyday use, quick, friendly, and thorough customer service responses, active community of users to share and solve issues (and issues do get solved!), you get benefits out of the program in proportion to the information that you put into it.
Cons: not able to change product type (non-stocked/stocked), could use a more intuitive and detailed accounting aspect before this becomes your main accounting program, inventory menu options seem too segregated (it would be easier if checking stock, adjusting stock, setting up new categories was on all one screen or condensed, however there are links to each action from the main inventory screen)

Comments: inFlow has a great colourful user interface which is easy to navigate though and logical to use. A lot of competitors products have endless grey screens and software which seems to have been adapted from massive clunky old programs, inFlow seems to have been freshly designed from the ground up and it shows.
It is quick to learn how to use, a couple of days learning it and you are away. It works well for POS too so barcode scanners, tills etc integrate well.
It has saved me a load of time to get on with the business rather than tapping away at the keyboard for hours to keep up.
I'd recommend it if you are a small business looking for a stock control/POS program and can't afford the prices of the big (expensive) players.

Comments: I use inflow 1 years now and I am very happy with the program.
The most common problem I have got is that I count the real stock and it doesn¿t match inflow, because I forgot to put a sales order on picked and shipped. Maybe you want to put in reminders (pop-ups or a quick and small reports of the inventorystatus of sales orders). So a user doesn¿t forget to put a sales order on shipped. In my case there is very little time between putting in a sales order (at confirmation of the sales order) and shipment. Very low reservation time so to say.

Comments: I'm not into bookkeeping or administrating. That initially gave some problems because I thought I could manage with implementing only part of the program. But after some customer and bookkeeping support we finally have everything working correctly by now. My fault, not Inflows'.

Overall quite happy with the software. But...it often gives me an error (connection) message at startup, which takes a manual click and about a minute to get over. Perhaps it's because I use Inflow on a laptop that moves around a bit and keeps logging in at different wifi places. Also, it is annoying that in prices I still have to use the north american decimals; in the rest of the world we use a , instead of your .

Comments: all very cool,,, but probably the only things still missing in INFLOW are the ability to >>

Show actual % Profit Margin of any given sale, directly in sale order section.
This so you can gauge how much your goods cost compaired to what you make when you invoice them,,, very important to run a business in +.
>>> this would a cool feature especially when applying special pricing on the go to particular items on an invoice,, this way you can keep an eye on your net profit margin of total of Invoice.
and never go under...

also

Freight % ratio of each purchased Invoice >> freight costs vs goods purchased.
At a glance the ability to tell you what is the freight % ratio for each order purchased would be pretty handy to keep track of passive costs.

thats pretty muh it,, the rest is fantastic,,,

Comments: I run a small business with a lot of products and , in general, Inflow is fantastic and serves me very well. The customer service is great - timely and helpful.
My primary issue is that Inflow doesn't play well with others. An export to QB is an obvious starting place. If Inflow and QB connected - even simply to begin with - it would be huge and would save time and money in not re-entering sales and customer data. Another sore point is their export feature. Ideally, there should be more control over and choice in exporting data details (eg specify which products, sales, dates, etc).

Also, when i meet with problems, all i have to do is send in an e-mail and my questions will be replied promptly! I would say that this is a sincere software company as they constantly listens and reviews the needs of their customers and subsequently come up with updates that suits the needs.

I have found inflow very easy to use and it has been pretty easy to teach others how to use this system too. For the business I am in, it does satisfy most of my needs which prior to getting inflow was a very difficult and time consuming process.

Something to improve: I think the look of the PO and SO is a little too simple. It would be great if there is some outlines throughout the PO and SOs. Also, it would be great if there are notifications send to us about new versions available to download online.

It would also be great if you guys can create some sort of re-order notifications, say like to track how many quantity of that item we sold every week and calculate how long our inventory is gonna last and have re-order notifications based on that.

Thank you very much!

Granted, it is not a full accounting solution, but the ease of use, quick setup, constant improvement and above all dedicated, friendly, passionate staff put this company on my top ten list every time.

Pros are too many to detail...
Cons have to be that it is not a cloud solution yet and that it could have a better integration with other accounting software's...

Comments: I would recommend inflow to any small businesses, the only downfall we've experienced is with reports that more reports and accurate reports would definitely help. For instance, commission report, sales reports that include credits from previous months.

There's just a lot of dates associated with one transaction: ship date, order date, invoice date, paid date, but there's no return date, restock date that can be pulled from reports.

Overall, amazing affordable program. Great job guys.

Comments: I went to the internet with a need, and that was to get our small business bar-coded, since the old words-only tags were taking so long to process at the point of sale, ie. hand written receipts and all, causing lineups that were too long at times and likely costing us business. I found your book offer "Bar-code Your Business" and ordered a copy. It was well written, very concise, and of course, led me to purchase Inflow.

What I REALLY like about Inflow is how intuitive it is. I didn't need to take a course to figure it out, as it feels very Windows-like. I purchased a no-name bar code gun online, devised a model code scheme for our products, and was up and running in no time. Thanks.

On the "not so shiny" comments side, I can't say I liked the upgrade from v2 to v3. The original v2 did everything I needed, and required less explanation to my helpers as to it's function. Suddenly with v3, we now had to hit Save, Fulfill and Mark Paid, all of which ended up with me having to fix this by cheating the date on my computer and closing orders after the fact, when the helpers didn't do it the first time. I was also broadsided one day when on the job, Inflow v3 just froze up on me and I didn't know what to do, exactly when I needed it the most. Well, it turns out that I had to be connected to the internet to use it, obviously so Inflow could monitor licensing/usage status. This was not good, although your customer service was quick to help me with this. If you could find another way to police the licensing, that would be nice. And finally, the one thing that drives me nuts (did again yesterday) is the fact that if I fill in the "customer name" field AFTER having filled in the sales order details, any discounts applied off original price get erased. This has on a number of occasions caused me to inadvertently overcharge customers, and is extremely embarrassing when it's they who notice it first and think I'm trying to "pull a fast one" on them. PLEASE fix this! (although I'm outside of my customer support time window, you can spare others the same issue).

Once again, I must compliment your customer service (hen it still applied to me) for their very prompt responses to any query I ever had.

I was used to using a much more complicated retail software (and by complicated I mostly mean difficult and convoluted), and found this to have most of the same functionality in a much simpler package. So bravo!

You don't have to be a computer geek to use it!

Comments: Inflow is an Inventory system designed for use by normal people. Its main advantage is that the interface is intuitive and requires minimal training. The system avoids the complexities and technical jargon of some other systems

As it was my first time to use software system, but I realized that inflow doesn't update anything that customers need.

It is pretty one way communication as they don't listen or keep their promise that they will develop but nothing keep on.

I recommend to use local software if you are in oversea as I live in Australia.

The reason for using local software, they know rather than international software because you loose a lot of features like link bank and tax system.

I recommend this software if who dose simply using software for invoicing a payment.

Thanks

Comments: The program is obviously designed to work across a wide variety of use cases, this is a double edged sword. It has loads of features but in order to allow those features to work across all cases, some functionality has been sacrificed.

We are very happy with the software however one big let down is the way it handles bills of materials, the reporting of multi-level BoMs is severely lacking, forcing us to resort to Excel spreadsheets for overall costs of assemblies with up to 16 levels and a number of other functions we require.

That being said the software is otherwise incredibly easy to use and saves us so much time and the customer service is second to none!

The software is a good product. It fits the companies needs for tracking sales and inventory.

Comments: When I upgraded to a new version some time ago, there were some errors that have apparently been resolved.

Have been using the free version for 2 years and just upgraded to the Regular license version.

Comments: Overall I'm very satisfied with the product. I use it to manage my sales and inventory of Alpaca products. Had some past issues with it frequently not loading correctly when launched, but that seems to have been fixed. A big plus is allowing customers to use the free version to get used to the system and make sure it meets their needs. I now have over
