Comments: Overall, very useful software to have if you need stock management and PO/SO control

Pros: Has all features for a small scale business needs to manage stock and keeping logs of PO's and invoices. It has helped the business grow.

Cons: Data export is in a format that is hard to edit, CSV export files once opened cannot be used straight away as the numbers are all in "TEXT" format.

Pros: Amount of features included with price of software. Ease of use. Intuitiveness. Would recommend this to others.

Cons: Better integration with scan gun. We have an inventory sheet that we use to transfer products from our warehouse to different locations i.e., service vans, install vans. I would like to use the scan gun to do this procedure instead of manually, as its done now.

Pros: The flexibility that gives the user, if I need a report that does not have inFlow I can export / create it to Excel.
I can also simply copy and paste data.
I currently handle 6000+ SKUs in more than 5 stores, more than 100,000+ Sales without slowing down problems, or headaches.
Thanks to this program you move from ordered storage to chaotic storage without problems

Cons: I do not have a clear disadvantage ... mmm ... I see that you can not handle products with expiration date, but that is not my item

Overall: Pass all Excel inventories very quickly and manage the products in more than 5+ stores

Presenting information in a meaningful way is the highlight

Cons: Quick search for populating could do with improvement when filling sales orders for stores carrying more than 100 items
Inventory movement could benefit with SO or PO replaced by Customer or vendor ( Yes reports can achieve that

Pros: Multiple ways to parse and sort inventory. I also like the feature when transferring stock that it must be received at the new location before the transfer is complete. Great for audits.

Cons: Limited report features. I need to export to excel in order to get the reports that I need. SQL report modification features would be great.

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.

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.

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: 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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure that there is an interface for importing orders from a store-front or POS system OR use the native functionality and take orders directly in the software.

Comments: Inflow is exactly as the name suggests - it flows in our business perfectly. The integration I require to continue to use Inflow is with Xero. If this is introduced, Inflow will be perfect for our business. We use the features of bill of materials, invoicing, statements, reports.
Thank you for your continuing growth and attention to the consumers requirements.

Pros: InFlow has completely organized our inventory, we can easily see what we need to reorder and when we need to order it. It has saved our bacon so many times! People may forget what's been sold, but the software remembers everything! InFlow has saved us so much time, and has saved us money since now we order only what we need. We love inFlow!

Cons: I do wish for a few more reports, but the inFlow software is so good, that I would highly recommend it regardless. I really don't have any major issues with inFlow. It works really well. A couple of times per year I'm asked to find numbers that I haven't before, and it takes me a little while to figure out what to do, but I could always watch an online tutorial.

Recommendations to other buyers: Best deal for the price. InFlow makes it easy to track inventory, easy to reorder, and easy to evaluate our yearly product flow.

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: 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)

We have to create over 1,300 basic supply kits each year and there are 3 types of kits (Elementary, Middle, High School) with different supply requirements. Inflow allows me to know how many of each school supply we have collected from donors. It then allows me to know what I need to stress for donors to donate and what we are going to need to purchase.
