What do you like best?

The implementation time is really low, and the userinterface is really easy to understand, even if you are not trained with ERP software. Since it is cloud based, there is no need to make a local back-up.

Entry of data is quite fast thanks the clear entry mask. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The mobile interface could be better, sometimes pages are a little bit slow to load, but that is usually a trade-off when using cloud-based solutions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

When searching for an attractively priced inventory management system, then Megaventory could be a software of choice. The software has selfexplanatory user-interface therefore does not need a long employee training. Navigating through the software is easy, thanks to a good subdivision.

If you need to have limited authorizations for every employee, then i would not reccomend this software since you can't customize the limititations individually. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The company grew bigger and bigger over time and traditional stock keeping techniques were not an option anymore. There was nobody who knew what exactly was in stock. Megaventory enabled us to clean the inventory and have a better overview over the stocks with current inventory, arriving products and pre-orderd items. The costs of goods not sold has been cut down as well the obsolete items. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We've used Megaventory for many years and it keeps getting better with each new version. It has all the features we need as a small business with hundreds of SKUs. We find the serial # function to be really essential for tracking our finished goods. The UI is easy to navigate and it's generally easy to figure out how to use new features without viewing the online help. While none of our employees are formally educated in inventory management we all are able to use it successfully. Whenever we run into the rare bug, Megaventory is very quick to respond and resolve it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

While functional and relatively easy to navigate the UI is a bit clunky / outdated. They could probably benefit from having a dedicated UI / human factors designer. For example, when searching inventory it's not that obvious that you may be filtering based on inventory location. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to precisely track our inventory with staff not trained in this area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The software's ability to keep in mind that even if I haven't received an item, it can still be accounted for and reserved for a customer.

Also, the localization options are the best I've seen in any software, you can literally change any section to use the phrasing that best suits your organization. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The UI used to be a bit old style but it's been renewed in the last couple months and it looks great now! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you understand the interactions with Quickbooks before doing the initial sync, as quickbooks is not very forgiving is anything is configured in the wrong way. Talk to the MV support team and they'll get you sorted out. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

What I like the best is that only a few filed are required when defining products, suppliers and categories. However a plenty optional ones are available. This makes the system flexible for small startups and bigger companies. We save time with this system and make the work done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

what is missing still is an integration with Shopify Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It is very straightforward, so the implementation time is really short. You can pretty much start using it as soon as you buy it, although of course some configuration is necessary. It has a trial version which is amazing because you don't have to sign a contract or pay upfront and only afterwards realize what the software does/doesn't do.

We like that we can manage our procurement, inventory and manufacturing from one solution and that it integrates with SolidWorks. The customer support is also amazing. They answer really fast and help us figure out how to solve our problems. They will also do customizations at request, which we have some times needed, and they delivered to our satisfaction.

In a nutshell, we are getting great value for money. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We would love it if we could have:

1. A purchase requisition process that includes manager approval (our procurement department still receives emails and spreadsheets to know what to purchase)

2. A more comprehensive AP invoice functionality. We can only record invoices that are linked to a PO/material receipt, so the rest of them (electricity bill, insurance, travel expenses) we cannot record in the system. This means we have two sources of payables and that is not good practice.

3. We cannot set approval limits for PO for different users. Some of our buyers should not be placing orders of more than a certain amount, but we cannot restrict that.

We have not been too deep into costing or shipping functionalities yet, so I cannot comment on those two topics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before Megaventory we were in total darkness. Thanks to this tool we now have control over what we are buying, storing and building. Despite being a small software compared to the big ERPs, it is truly keeping us alive. We manage all of our production, and we have started buying for our international offices using Megaventory. There are of course many things to be improved, but it does the most important things any manufacturing company needs to have. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Dimitris Athanasiadis of Megaventory

Thank you for your review.

We have taken down your requests for purchase quotes with manager approvals and order value limits for consideration regarding inclusion in our product roadmap - thank you for your suggestions!

Please note that you can create a product of Product Type Service and use that to record invoices such as those you mention (i.e. insurance, expenses, etc). Megaventory is not an accounting software so if you need a proper AP management, then you need appropriate bookkeeping software

So, although again we see the value of such functionality living inside Megaventory until more advanced bookkeeping features become available you can make use of Quickbooks Online which integrates with Megaventory and can fully track your AP and other bookkeeping information.

Again thank you for your contribution.

It is easy to use software that worked very well for our needs. The support is extremely good and the team is responsive and has even enhanced features and take suggestions Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No support for localized taxes for India, so I am unable to use it generate Tax Invoices.

Some invoices need taxation that is not line wise but on the entire invoice. Not able to do that

This is the biggest problem for me, as i need to make invoices in another system, yet still do some basic invoicing here for inventory integrity Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The possibility to manage your inventory with effectiveness and accountability, you can make every movement, add new products, make a sales quotation, make it into a sales order, generate invoices, add tracking numbers, dates and add a lot of useful information for your business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it has its limitations, like when you want to sort your sales by sku's rather than clients, date or sales orders. Nevertheless, the crew behind Megaventory will always try to find a way to help you with any trouble you find within the platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the different types of reporting it offers. After speaking with Kostis about needing extra help using Megaventory he has really stepped up to the plate. He has gotten back to me with changes within an hour and I am highly impressed and grateful. The system isn't the easiest to learn on your own and the support articles are just overwhelming; but Kostis and Demitris have been doing a great job at helping with my questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It's not very user friendly and can be pretty confusing. Whenever something goes wrong I am stuck until Kostis or Dimitris helps me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to know what our on hand inventory was at any given time and to be able to scan our products in and out by serial numbers. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We at DegerHellas use Megaventory since 2012. We have 4000 solar tracking systems in SouthEast Europe and Megaventory helps us to distribute required spares to more than 250 customers. Megaventory team consulted us how to use their software to handle our service and sales. My team has beforehand and everywere any information needed! For us, after 4 years is the best and most versatile stock management system! Having everything in the cloud we dont care about backups :-) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What i like the most is that it is a cloud base software

The possibility of múltiple correncias, historial, attaching documents, easy to use, we can also work in mac, and we can load images of the products, export into excel and pdf. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

no chance of giving different autorizations to users, and the posibility to send more products than the ones that appear on your sales orders. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

the software is very easy to use, even though be carefull with the permissions, because there are not levels of authorizations.

for instance, once you give access to someone to the purchase orders, this person can make orders, validate them and recieve products as well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we are solving many problems at the same time.

we use megaventory to manage our purchase orders, sales orders, and inventory.

before, each person had to have their own control of their part of the process, now the work has been optimized and we can access to the information any time.

We work more fluently and it has become faster.

also we are saving lots of paper.

Response from Dimitris Athanasiadis of Megaventory

Thank you for your review! Really appreciate taking the time to write it!

Just a couple of notes regarding the cons you lay out.

For one thing, it is possible to provide different permissions to different users to a significant extent. Certain functionality is also off-limits to non-admin users. Other than that, certain permissions may not be able to be provided to any user at all - in most cases that's related to the specific workflow of each company. In these circumstances, we suggest to our customers to contact us so we can address the shortcoming with a workaround or, if possible, to include a fix in our product roadmap, if the issue in question is a more generally applicable one.

For another, regarding sending out products not existing in sales orders, it generally is possible to create a new product with its individual parameters (SKU, description, price, etc) at any time and include it in a future sales order following the product creation.

Again, thanks for the review and we're at your disposal for any further comments or clarifications.

What do you like best?

It's easy to use. Logical workflow, good user role management, serial number support, technical support is prompt and expert. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I am using the older version because of serial number module and it sometimes gives internal server error.. but its really ignorable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend Megaventory to business with inventory management needs. If you need to keep record of serial numbers, there is no other software available in the market for this price. I have done lots of comparisons before buying this and I am quite happy with my decision. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am in mobile phone business and most important feature is keeping track of each phone bought and sold. Megaventory helps me to keep record of each single phone by registering IMEI (Serial number) for each handset and see where I bought the phone and to whome did I sell. If customer returns the phone I can check with MV history if this is the same phone I sent to customer.

Megaventory also generates delivery notes /packing slip/picking slip with serial numbers which saves a lot of work by entering them manually. Return of Goods from customer and Return of Goods to supplier are all very good functions that reduce work load and help me concentrate on business.. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Thanks for your review.

We've recently launched a redesign which has made Megaventory even more responsive. You are now able to perform all actions either via a tablet or via a smartphone and are limited in these devices only in genuinely complicated cases of long tables and complex information presentation where the limited screen real estate would anyway be an issue.

Other than that, Megaventory is mobile-ready and effective from smartphones and tablets too.
