IntegrationKings review of Dear Systems

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: A great overall platform for anyone selling products in the market that wants to control their Inventory correctly and the workflows in relation to an Inventory business. Also from an accounting background it is a full end-to-end solution in relation to ensuring the accounting is 100% correct in the business.

Pros:

The features we like most about Dear Systems and so do the clients we work with are: - Integrations around stock control and sales workflows with Woo Commerce and Shopify. - Complete bi-directional integration with Xero and QBooks Online. - Love the fact that we can do Supplier Deposits and Customer Deposits, tracking them correctly within the accounting system. - Also the fact that we can do multi-level Build of Materials for manufacturing clients and then sell via multiple of sales channel.

Cons:

The features we least like most about Dear Systems: - Reporting in the platform takes abit to set-up and ensure you are getting the reporting you want out of the system. - Would like to see more integrations over time into the core platform overall as well.

Using Cin7 Core for Order Management

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: I had one-on-one help onboarding and troubleshooting from Muskan Israni who was very patient, helpful, and knowledgeable about the software.

Pros:

I like that I can integrate my sales channels (Etsy and Shopify - Amazon is an option too, but I opted not to integrate it to save money) and input manual orders in one place to keep track of orders, inventory, shipments, and payments. I used their previous product OrderHive, so it is all fairly intuitive to use, and they provided great onboarding and setup.

Cons:

I wish it was more affordable for my small business like OrderHive was

Disappointment: Steer Clear of CIN7

1.0 last week New

Comments: Ever since CIN7 took over DEAR Systems, the shift in focus from quality service to maximizing profits has been blatantly obvious. The deterioration in service is both rapid and frustrating.

Pros:

Their customer support exists, which is something. They do respond to inquiries, albeit not always in the most helpful manner. If you’re looking for inventory management software and are okay with navigating a complex pricing structure, CIN7 might be worth considering. There are definitely options out there, but this is one of them.

Cons:

Their pricing is chaotic, filled with charges for unnecessary features, and the account closure process is ridiculously cumbersome, demanding a 30-day notice. It's evident they’ve designed it this way to continue extracting money from their users. Customer support is practically non-existent. They show no willingness to assist. In all honesty, this company and its software are a waste of your resources. There are much better alternatives available. Stay away at all costs.

Cin7 Review

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: Over all its ok. I think the best thing would have been to do was to upgrade OrderHive and leave that inplace. It was a great system that worked well.

Pros:

There isnt really anything that I feel sticks out. I think its a little cumbersome and easy to get lost or forget to click on one of the tabs. Too much back and forth.

Cons:

Not user frindly. Too much clicking to get where you want to be. Not able to modify sheets.

Hard to set up

4.0 5 months ago

Comments: I liked the person who helped us to set up, but he's connection was poor so sometimes, it was hard to follow the conversation. The team don't really know how the app (integrations) works together without a inventory system so it's hard to have specifications about it. I liked the little video I had before, but at one point I wasn't able to use it again. Overall, It was a long process that wasn't really easy to follow step by step. We are live but a lot of thing is still unknown of not clear. We had product that was suppose to be "out of stock" because of past orders, that was "back on stock" so this morning we have to deal with customer. An onboarding journal would have been awesome so we can have a step by step guide and a place to write our thoughts a long the way instead of forgetting it between the meeting. For the cost on the onboarding, it didn't worth it at all

Pros:

Once you understand how it works, it makes everything easier.

Cons:

The integration is really hard to follow. There's a platform available to follow it, but you don't actually see anything on it or you you do, you don't really understand what you can do or not. I feel like there was no link between each task. I didn't like that the onboarding team do a lot instead of letting you do it so you get more familiar with all the process.
