Score 8 out of 10
We use it in my department to inventory and catalog all of the goods we process at our facility. It allows to track and maintain stock and let us know when we need to reorder supplies. It helps avoid any confusion about what goods we have available to distribute and hand out. That way we're never caught short handed when we connect with clients. Additionally, it acts as a repository for client information allowing us to house client information. This is useful for bulk emailing and informational emails. Functionally, it solves issues around inventory management and allocation and it solves some of our communication needs with clients. It also allows organizing inventories by department which becomes extremely useful in tracking usage rates and which program is consuming which set of resources.
- Inventory management - It's easy to update inventories and organize items with specific tags.
- Client information - It's easy to update basic client information into the system and maintain easy access to their records.
- Visualization - It can visualize inventory quantities and helps provide a graphical representation of which department is consuming which resources.
- UI - The UI is pretty paired down so it's not cluttered and limits the options to only what is relevant to your given task.
- Design - While the UI is navigable, the design looks a bit dated.
- Server issues - Occasionally the web-based client is too slow to process information and can result in a double input of said information. It's not life ending but a bit annoying at times.
- Custom Tagging - Most of the tags we input to classify inventory have to be entered manually, it would really nice to have those populate automatically.
- Inventory buttons - They used to have buttons that you could click to change the inventory in a given field, now you just have to enter the number in the field itself. Was much nicer to have the option of both.

With all of the supplies and outreach we do with clients, Imonggo is really good at tracking that inventory. We can scan it in to have a detailed accounting of where our supplies end up located. We can scan them out to track which department is using supplies and at which quantities. This helps us keep track of our inventory usage rates and therein our connections with clients. This extremely useful in our grant reporting so we can track spending and demonstrate that money is translating to tangible benefits for our clients.
