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.

    The best cloud-based Inventory Management option for SMEs

    As a consultant implementing DEAR Inventory for a wide range of SMEs, we have solved an innumerable amount of problems along the way. From Batch tracking, to serial number tracking, integrations with online stores, accounting, shipping, reporting and forecasting, etc, it is all there.

    The team at DEAR are generally very quick to respond and offer assistance, and the users are given the power to request and vote on new features to be implemented. The subscription pricing is also at a point where it represents huge value for money.

    Pros

    As a cloud integration consultant working with SMEs in Adelaide and interstate to solve inventory management issues by implementing the right software, DEAR has proven again and again to be the leading choice for these businesses and is now our recommended choice as an implementation specialist.

    DEAR has the functionality to provide a central solution to any SME looking to sell online or instore across a number of channels, and manage all the inventory in one place.The integration with Xero is top notch and the most robust I've seen of almost any app that connects to Xero.

    The integrations to eCommerce channels are consistent in their setup and options and allow a great deal of flexibility. Complementing these integrations are shipping service integrations that allow for a full suite of inter-connected apps with DEAR as the hub.

    Cons

    If I had a gripe, it would be around some minor inconsistencies within the UI across various parts of the software, as well as some minor inconsistencies with various reports that are available.

    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

    Reasons for Switching to Cin7 Core

    Frustrating to deal with your help desk people who tell you to log a feature request when they are done talking to you and can't solve your problem

    Pros

    Easy to understand and figure out when starting off.

    Cons

    Your point of sale system you offer with this software is less than useless its remedial in functionality and offering. Struggle to program in store promotions on it you can't create area specific promotions for outlets in an area. Your way of setting up a cash float is useless and not user friendly. Your journals between Xero and Cin7 do not push correctly. Till overs and shorts are a nightmare to investigate. Gift cards are cumbersome to use and implement. We were using We where using Lightspeed as a point of sale before and you c=guys can learn some lessons from them your system will be something from the stone age compared to Lightspped.

    A must have for any product based business

    Reviewed on 07/04/2022

    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.

    I worked with [SENSITIVE CONTENT] in the OnBoarding team and he was awesome! My implementation took a VERY LONG time due to our business being so busy. He was so patient and would contact me every 3 weeks or so to see how things were progressing. He took so much time to go over the product with me and my coworkers multiple times. He answered MANY LONG emails from me with tons of questions. He was always pleasant, happy, so helpful, and in my opinion the greatest secret weapon that DEAR has!! Now that my implementation is complete (thanks to him) I feel like I have lost a friend. He has assured me that the Support team are just as awesome and helpful as he has been - but I don't believe anyone will ever be as amazing as [SENSITIVE CONTENT] was! Thanks [SENSITIVE CONTENT]!!

    Pros

    I LOVE the fact that I can invoice before receiving the inventory physically. We work with an overseas company and their business practice is to invoice once the product leaves their hands, however accepting their invoice made my inventory way off in QBO. So glad to be able to maintain what the true physical inventory is and not have to try to keep up with the travelling inventory too.

    Cons

    The feature I would like the least is the CRM. I was really hoping that it would work for our sales team and that they would be able to have access to the inventory information easily. However, the CRM lacked a lot of the capabilities that our sales managers were looking for to help with managing their teams.
