BarCloud Stock

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.

BarTender

Bartender may well be suited for larger companies who have people with Bartender experience, but it is an unnecessarily complex suite of apps that takes some getting used to. Smaller IT shops looking for something more user-friendly, slightly less expensive, and more streamlined should look for alternatives. Some applications are built specifically to use Bartender template files, and in those cases, you may not have an alternative.

Pros

BarCloud Stock

  • Barcloud is really easy to use from multiple locations with multiple login potential.
  • Allows outlying locations to see what we have in stock without seeing in person.

Cons

BarCloud Stock

  • 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.

  • Resource Intensive - Can use a lot of resources
  • Pricey - But you get what you pay for
  • Licensing can be quite difficult to understand

I often have to try to troubleshoot printing issues for other team members, but I have never reached out to a BarTender support network. I’ve always just tinkered within the app to figure it out.

We do use Zebra label designer, a free product, in circumstances where we don’t need a complicated label, such as no serialization, no connection to a dynamic database, etc. If we were to pull those instances into BarTender, we would need more licenses, which are expensive

Return on Investment

BarCloud Stock

  • 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.
