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.

  • The ease of use is phenomenal. Unlike other software where the dealer comes and sets up the whole system, you can do this all by yourself.
  • You can upload multiple items detail in inventory via CSV file rather than enter each item detail.
  • It gives you features to which you can change the virtual location of any item.
  • We are an eCommerce Business. Therefore, we want the status for each item which is available in our stock, whether it was returned from a customer or rejected by the vendor. In addition, inFlow gives you all these functionalities on a single platform.
  • It's a user-friendly application which doesn't require an expert to configure it.
  • You can integrate InFlow with eCommerce solution i.e. Magento & Shopify.

  • Lag - The software lags a bit while communicating with server. It causes a little delay and frustration for certain features
  • Reporting - Although the reporting is good enough it lacks a certain amount of customization for reports
  • Integrations - While the software integrates smoothly with a lot of accounting softwares, it sometimes creates issues with certain l2c erp systems

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

I haven’t used any other inventory management system before using inFlow Inventory, I feel very lucky to have found a software that does what I need it to do without the need to try any other software prior. It meets my eCommerce small business needs and I’m very satisfied with the customer service I receive from this app.

  • inFlow has a lot of important inventory management features, but I like the easy import tool that adds stock to the database in less than a minute.
  • You can keep track of inventory, purchase orders, modify items, and generate reports of sales, salesperson, product, statistics. The possibilities are endless with this tool.
  • The software is very easy to work with and see real-time updates. Everything from transferring stock to pulling stock and inputting new products is done with ease.
