DEAR Inventory

I think it's better suited for small businesses and those looking to change inventory in the future.

It would be well suited for a business that is just starting out with inventory management and sells on multiple channels. They are a growing company that is constantly changing and making improvements. I don't think there is another competitor out there that can offer the same features at their price point.It may not be well suit for large organizations.

  • Multi-channel inventory sync: automatic depletion and restoration of inventory with sales and refunds, syncing back to all your channels.
  • Sales order and purchase order management: keep track of things you buy and sell while simultaneously keeping your inventory accurate.
  • Custom upload and export formats: you can make ecomdash work with almost any platform by creating your own formats to upload or export your data.

  • User interface. The whole thing feels clunky.
  • Knowledge-base. Their searchable knowledge base isn't really all that helpful. It feels like it was written as an afterthought.

DEAR Inventory

DEAR Inventory 1.0
Based on 2 answers
Terrible support, absolutely useless for anything more major than a simple navigational problem. They always provide meaningless responses that don't really address the issue such as, "our engineering department is working on the issue" or "we're working on some optimisation". These responses would be fine if anything actually resulted from them, but the same errors and problems have existed for 4 years so I don't believe they really amount to anything. In addition, they're quite pushy for me to "close your ticket" so it can be marked as resolved, but my issue hasn't been resolved. I don't exactly want to leave my ticket open for several months, but they send me consistent reminders to close the ticket which is obnoxious especially since their resolution was "our engineering department will work on it".

eComdash always answers our questions, and they have a call-back system to speak on the phone which is very convenient. The people there actually understand the complexities of the software and understand our problems when we explain them. Things get solved quickly and we feel like they care about the speed of the resolution.

Alternatives Considered

DEAR Inventory

  • DEAR does what it says on the tin. We see great feedback from our peers.
  • Unleashed, I found support poor (but over two years ago).
  • Linnworks - No Xero integration by Xero recommended API and very expensive by other third party SAP Business 1 is in a different league, but the cost is also [expensive].

I have not had first hand experience with inventory management software like ecomdash.
