Likelihood to Recommend
Acctivate is best suited for very basic inventory needs. It syncs up well with Standalone Quickbooks and tracks physical inventory really well. I wouldn't recommend it if you need a complex suite for a larger business. Needs a lot of improvement. If you need a vendor, purchasing, PO system - I would suggest looking elsewhere.

I do not see how this is suited for anyone needing to track inventory coming in and going out. FIFO is completely unusable because the system can handle price changes from suppliers. The price change is applied to all past sales orders and items even if they are no longer in stock. In the Con examples I gave [below] you can see how many problems we have had with this system.

Allows outlying locations to see what we have in stock without seeing in person. Read full review Cons Sales rep honesty Sell products that actually work Needs better support Read full review The sales orders get "lost" in the system. This makes it so we are unable to issue them to take the items out of stock. The FIFO option does not work and has never worked in the year we have used the program. When price changes occur the system changes all the past sales orders to reflect the price change. this makes balancing the $ of inventory a nightmare. Items that have issued before become unavailable to issue because of system hiccups. The inventory count never matches the physical count because of system hiccups with issuing items. System unusable for tracking actual inventory counts. If the item has to be moved to a different inventory location (shelf change) the system crashes and deletes the entire history of the product. Customer Service for BarCloud is left to be desired. They take weeks to get back to you about a problem and even then their answer is always we are not sure why the system it is doing that. The price is unimaginably high for the product service and problems that the system has. All of our Sales orders from 2016 to now have been undone. This caused us to show in BarCloud that our stock contains everything we ordered for the entire year and we have sold $0. Read full review Alternatives Considered
Acctivate is at the bottom of the list. It is old and outdated.
Read full review Return on Investment More Accountability Inventory Accuracy Read full review We have had 0 return on investment and we are currently switching to a different inventory system. BarCloud has caused us to lose money from all the hours we have had to spend fixing the inventory count and having to do physical counts every week to know what we actually have on hand. Caused more headaches than help. Positive point: We learned that the more expensive system that is web based does not mean they are a better program or will have better customer service.
