Great Inventory Management System

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: It has been great. This is the 3rd inventory management system we used, its inexpensive, easy to setup, and staff are trained in it within 10 minutes. Very flexible program. We were looking at various solutions for inventory, and sortly ended up being the best.

Pros:

We could customise sortly, exactly to our needs, and make changes without having to hire a company to do it.

Cons:

I cant find any negatives about it. Ideally we would love an integration into our job management system. So as stock is sold in the job management system, items are deducted in sortly automatically.

Great Addition!

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: We started with Sortly as a trial to see if it could easily and accurately track our inventory and also give us added features like visuals of the items and the option of generating a variety of reports. We did take our time with the transition to make sure we were comfortable with the new system. We worked on building our inventory in Sortly simultaneously while running our old system. We used the bulk import feature to add most of our inventory which was a plus. Overall the transition has been easy and is much better than what we were using. It is faster, accurate and user friendly. The search feature is excellent and the ability to easily generate a variety of reports is also extremely helpful. Overall I am very happy with Sortly!

Pros:

The ability to search for a product multiple ways and upload pictures of the product. I also like being able to print a variety of reports and always seeing the total value of our inventory at a glance.

Cons:

Not being able to list items in size order. There is also a lag time when updating quantities and adding photos.

Predatory Subscription Practices

1.0 3 weeks ago New

Comments: Was going great until they tried to take advantage of us. This whole age of software as a service is a blight on any industry. Parasites.

Pros:

Easy to use, easy to implement. Didn't need any training.

Cons:

They got us on the hook for a year to use their software. We enjoyed using it, it was helpful. The very next year they increased our plan cost 132%($1,100 a year to $2,700), more than double. So they wait until you depend on the software and then try to milk you for all you have. Very predatory. We cancelled.

Linking different areas together

4.0 4 months ago

Comments: Can you think about linking the areas to make one area tell you to move over inventory from another area?

Pros:

app based; search functions, ease of use

Cons:

different areas are not linked; need to be able to link one location of inventory to another location

Sortly is an amazing inventory management asset!

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: Sortly is an integral part of our daily workflow in the office and when in the field with clients. It streamlined how we were able to keep track of hundreds of objects and made my job much more efficient. I love being able to print pages of the inventory that are attractively arranged so that I can create presentation binders for clients. I really can't speak highly enough of it. This is the one program that I really couldn't do my job nearly as well without.

Pros:

I'm an interior designer, and we use this to keep track of our client's inventory of furniture, artwork, and objects located in their houses, storage spaces, and at different vendors. I know that it's not what Sortly was designed for, but it works perfectly for it. It's very easy and convenient to be able to pull up the inventory and see what we've placed in different rooms, what needs to be pulled from storage, and what they actually own. It's very easy to add new items as needed. Sortly is indispensable in our day to day workflow and has literally transformed how we're able to interface with clients and manage their items.

Cons:

I wish that the option to crop and edit photos was consistent across platforms. I also wish that when there are multiples of an item that are located in different albums that the edits made to one apply to the other. But honestly, it is otherwise pretty close to perfect for our needs.
