DEAR Inventory

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

The software is really good for managing inputs and inventory as well as maintaining traceability. The "track picking moves" functionality lets you look into a specific lot or serial numbers and view all the product moves that occurred with that lot. However, some navigation is not intuitive. For example, if I click on an item in the BoM of an assembly, then click the back button to go back to the assembly, the site goes all the way back to the home screen. Some of these quirks mean that there is a learning curve for the software, but overall the tracking is very good.

Cons

DEAR Inventory

  • Support
  • Bugs
  • Website Functionality
  • Down-time
  • Glitchiness
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Odoo

  • Community version is sometimes hard to maintain, needs some on-premise knowledge (IT) or having business with an Odoo partner that is sometimes expensive and unreliable.
  • Enterprise version is as expensive as other ERP in the market.
  • Reporting is horrible, not a lot of possibility to integrate seamlessly with a third party BI platform.

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".

Alternatives Considered

  • 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].
John Cotter | TrustRadius Reviewer

Odoo

While comparing Direkto with the Odoo, I'd say, only consideration of the UI is enough to see the vital advantage of the latter. Moreover, the specific functions are way [more] easily searchable through the Odoo than in Direkto.
