Cin7 is great because a business can set up quickly without having to invest in hardware/servers, and the business does not need to be concerned about backing up data. Cin7 software is easy and intuitive to use. The pricing was competitive for cloud-based software that can be customized to each business. The software is constantly updated so a business does not have to worry about paying for updates or paying a large lump sum to purchase new updated software. However, Cin7 is able to increase its fees at any time. We experienced a significant price increase after 1 year. With purchased software, a business would not have to worry about unexpected pricing changes. Cin7 offers a useful integration with BigCommerce. Unfortunately, their own B2B website is lacking in features and ultimately not useful to our company. Cin7 does not provide the most useful customer service, as they only offer paid access to phone support. Most of our issue with the software were caused by updates in the software that were not announced, and they could only be fixed via email or tickets the next day.

ERPLY is really great for POS ERP system, it has wonderful mobile interface. It lacks in the more in-depth needs of international, multi-channel business. If you are a local store or a store with multiple locations in 1 country with on-site 1 location sales this will work. For a company that works in different countries, has back orders, has multiple Amazon and e-commerce site integrations, this is less suited to your needs.
Read full review Pros Powerful reporting that can be customized to fit your needs. Tons of integrations that help you get up and running quickly. Read full review POS system and reporting Ease of use and trusted use for customers and clients Read full review Cons Onboarding could be improved. We worked with a programmer who was not as familiar with our business needs. Additionally, the person in charge of our onboarding was initially difficult to schedule time with until we reached out to a manager. Cin7 occasionally makes updates to the software that causes the software to not work properly. For example, we would experience new errors on a CVS file import for products that had worked previously to the update. Additionally, our custom field implementations would be reverted to original and require set up again. We experienced semi-frequent outages of the software. The software would not be accessible for up to 1 hour at a time. I believe they took steps to address this and reduce down time. Read full review They were not able to adapt to help us with backorder reports, export function they created for us never worked properly and ultimately they were unable to fix. In our accounts, we ship to different countries from the same stock, these countries have different ecomm sites, they were unable to integrate with more than one ecomm site, requiring us to manually put in the second site orders which was hugely time consuming. We invested a lot of money and time without progress. We found it difficult to work with their engineers overseas even our UK team couldn't connect with them and in the US we found our NY rep without answers. Read full review Support Rating
The Cin7 support team has never let us down, even if they weren't able to completely solve our problem. They are willing to have conference calls, video chats, whatever works to help fix your issue.

As a wholesale focused business, we found
to be tailored to retail businesses.
was well suited for our wholesale business, however, lacked the full range of capabilities that Cin7 offered (B2B website, POS). Fishbowl had many features that we would not need.
OMS Office Master System
offered the wholesale capabilities we needed, however, the software could use an update. Cin7 was a perfect balance in terms of features and pricing for our company.

Stripe may be better for internet and virtual focused sales, while ERPLY shines with their POS system and reader for physical transactions and sales. Stripe has never offered us a physical card reader and the customer support for ERPLY seems to be great and well-versed in the few times we have needed help to set something up. ERPLY is best suited amongst competitions for its ease of use, attractive marketing and branding, and that it just plain works without a headache

Read full review We put a lot of money and time into developing custom reports with their off shore team that never worked. They were inexpensive way for us to test integrating ecommerce sites to our ERP system. They provided a decent, basic accounting module that enabled us to save on investing in separate accounting software. Read full review ScreenShots
