Cin7

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.

Linnworks

If someone came to me considering starting a business involving stock, being sold, I would definitely advise them to try Linnworks in order to make life so much easier. When I started out, as a one man business, it was LInnworks that allowed me to grow to a level that I needed to take on staff. I think that without Linnworks, I would still have a one man business.

Cons

Cin7

  • 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.

Linnworks

  • I find Linnworks to be a complete system and cannot really think to add to it sadly.
  • Any questions or issues can be easily resolved by the support team
  • Linnworks is constantly expanding, which does cause some training challenges but all in all I have no real "cons" in Linnworks.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Cin7

As a wholesale focused business, we found Vend to be tailored to retail businesses. TradeGecko 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.

Linnworks

As I have used Linnworks from day one, I constantly get contacted by Linnworks competitors asking me to try their system, however I cannot see any reason to move from a software package that we are all comfortable with, to a different system. It would seem pointless to move to a system that does not have the full functionality of Linnworks.

Return on Investment

Cin7

  • Improved inventory accuracy across all channels.
  • Sales gains from always showing products as in stock.
Charles Combs | TrustRadius Reviewer

Linnworks

  • Linnworks has allowed me to grow from a one-man business to a multi-million-pound international business with 8 employees.
  • Linnworks gives me the freedom to do what I want to do, rather than day to day tasks like managing inventory
  • The ease of use and addition of new users to the system makes new staff members easy to get up to speed with the software.
