Key benefits of Cin7 Core

  • Powerful order management:
    Cin7 Core acts as a central order management system and lets users achieve complete visibility of sales across all channels (retail, wholesale and ecommerce) and track customer orders from quote to fulfilment (pick, pack, shipment) and invoicing.

  • Inventory management:
    With inventory being the main asset it is important to know what is in stock, on order, allocated to a customer or running low. In Cin7 Core users can conveniently set automatic stock reorder points, perform stock adjustments and stay on top of all stock movements in their business.

  • Cin7 Core uses actual accounting costing methods FIFO and FEFO for true cost calculations when users buy, sell or manufacture. Variations of the costing methods cater for inventory with serial/batch numbers as well as expiry dates allowing users to store unique items and giving the ability to subsequently track the sale of inventory to specific end customers.

  • eCommerce Integrations:
    Cin7 Core supports all major ecommerce sale channels, shipment services and POS e.g. Square, Amazon, Fulfilment by Amazon, Shopify, WooCommerce, Shipstation, Vend, Floship and more.

    Our integrations with online stores and shipping platforms help users reach their customers and increase exposure and sales. Users can easily add new platforms to their sales strategy and use Core as a central point for managing all orders, payments and shipment information for multiple sales channels.

  • Manufacturing:
    Accurately tracking the costs of raw materials, labour and overheads through the production process will help users formulate the right pricing strategy for their products and ensure they are never operating at a loss. In Cin7 Core, this can be managed via the Bill of Materials functionality.
    Users can easily estimate the cost of manufacturing and availability of raw materials within the Production module. Check the maximum quantity users are able to manufacture along with the relevant costs and automatically order missing components. Auto-assemblies and kits are also available for the management of bundles.
    Our Disassembly module lets users break down items into smaller components and takes the pain out of unit conversions.

    Overall Dear is meeting our needs when connected to Xero. It meets our day to day inventory needs however would be much better if it was a more complete accounting & inventory package.

    Pros

    Dear was straight forward and reasonably easy to set up. It is good for our daily transaction, inventory management, and handles multiple warehouses and foreign currency well.

    Cons

    Features that could be improved are: visibility of stock on hand and sell price whilst in inventory, instead one has to either drill down on each stock item or go to reports. A general ledger section that has P & L, Balance Sheet, Trial Balance, etc would also be more user friendly- instead of going to reports.

    Alternatives Considered

    Sage Intacct

    Reasons for Choosing Cin7 Core

    Changed from Evolution as wanted a simpler, more user friendly, cloud based package. Preferred Dear over Unleashed due to better GL for inventory

    Reasons for Switching to Cin7 Core

    I could setup Dear myself, I was advised Intacct would require costly support to setup.

    We discovered a technical glitch that caused severe bloat to our database that was seemingly stemming from DEAR. We approached the DEAR team leader with the matter. Rather than accepting responsibility and assuring us that he would provide the customer service that was necessary, he did not. He instead brought attention to other aspects of the integration. After three months of pain, and moving to a new web hosting environment, and being down for 24 hours and up and down for a total of 3 months, a technical team was able to isolate the issue as being related to DEAR, and for the last 48 hours I have still not heard back from the DEAR tech LEAD on a fix, or with any offer of any kind to help us get back up and running the way that we are supposed to be. We are trying to trouble-shoot without any answers coming from the DEAR development team. I have never seen anything this lacking in terms of customer service in my 30 years of business. I am disappointed and expected more from the tech LEAD and DEAR customer service.

    Pros

    I created a requirements document of what we needed in an Inventory Management System and DEAR met all of them. I was so excited to find such a robust and affordable software solution in the cloud that hit all of my notes in my small indie maker business.

    Cons

    It was very very difficult for us to try and implement this product on our own. We hired an outside DEAR consultant. We spent $10K in consulting fees to get up and running. It took just about 8-9 months with a FTE almost completely focused 3/4 time and problems with the integration started just about the same time that we were up and running. Though we did not realize our problems with our web site were related to DEAR. We experienced outages and slowness on our site and were directed to take matters up with our hosting company. They reset and tuned our database-- and still we experienced slow performance. Because there are many moving parts-- and several outside vendors-- each pointing to each other--- it was this long, painful, expensive journey before we arrived right back to DEAR with the performance issues stemming from their API.

    DEAR Systems step to the future!

    Still getting used to the DEAR system, however, if compare with other inventory systems we used before, I must say DEAR is the answer, so far very happy! It’s all there, just need a bit of time to learn how to navigate around. Selling on Amazon & eBay? No problem..... (once everything is set up correctly) DEAR will do all your daily routine for you. Using an eCommerce website (in our case it's WooCommerce), it’s all there! We are still in process of integration/switching from Quickbooks desktop however, after only 1 month of using DEAR (plenty of step by step, how to use information online and very straightforward YouTube videos, which will answer most of your questions (how to?) on daily routine of most of the businesses. Special thank you to the support team, for being very helpful, straight to the point answers with plenty of information provided to understand and learn ….. bravo!

    Pros

    Xero & Dear system user (new user experience).
    Everything you need to manage warehouse inventory!
    Detailed Inventory information, Order process flow, purchasing order management, stock control, eCommerce website eBay/Amazon integration, - easy to use once you get used to it.
    Helpful support team, and plenty of information provided to understand and learn DEAR systems.

    Cons

    Takes some time to know the DEAR systems (navigate) due to many features.
    I guess we need to use DEAR systems for some time to get a better understanding and therefore, give a revised review of experience and possible Cons we might have.

    Reasons for Choosing Cin7 Core

    Quickbooks Desktop service termination in the UK from 2023

    Reasons for Switching to Cin7 Core

    Inventory management - stock control - plenty of features to use now or in the future. Amazon-ebay-ecommerce integration. Daily order routine progress, overall DAER systems feels pleasant to use

    A must have for any product based business

    Reviewed on 7/4/2022

    Pros

    I use OrderHive to as my inventory and order management app. It keeps track of everything I have on hand, orders I have coming in (from Etsy, Amazon, Shopify, etc.), and I can input my own orders from sales reps or wholesale accounts. I can then print packing slips, send invoices, input inventory I have coming in,, and much more! The support is very quick and helpful though I haven't needed much help since it runs smoothly. I highly recommend this app to keep track of all you have going on.

    Cons

    I was previously using an order management software that sold, so I was fairly familiar with how they work, I needed some help getting a few things set up, but it was smooth sailing after that.
