Inventory Management Software For Mac?
Businesses that run on Mac platforms have their reasons. Many are creative or design services businesses. Others started on Mac, but grew fast! So fast that, today, replacing all of their Macs with PCs would be cost-prohibitive. Still, others simply prefer OS X to Windows (that’s us!). Whatever the reason, if you run your business on Apple and have to manage inventory, you’ve probably encountered a few issues as your company engages “the rest” of the business world.
The disconnect between the Mac and PC world can be exceptionally frustrating in businesses that have complex inventory management or manufacturing components. Inventory Management Software For Mac has traditionally been limited to systems designed to work on PC and then spun to Apple.
Quickbooks Mac Edition is both over- and under-featured, and does not cooperate well across platforms. Upon efforts to scale, Quickbooks Inventory Module often requires database rebuilds that many bookkeepers see as a waste of time. The inventory management module for QB is reportedly inferior to its Windows counterpart; manufacturing or kitting businesses that have inventories of parts/components as well as inventories of final products made from those components, must “trick” the inventory module into “grouping” components. This further reduces your ability to produce useful inventory reports.
When evaluating other inventory management software for Mac, one will find that:
1) There are far fewer inventory management programs for Mac
2) They are limited in functionality compared to their PC-oriented counterparts
Why this situation exists is a conversation to be had at another time. For now, let’s focus on an inventory management program that was designed from the ground-up to run on a Mac machine (as well as across platforms).
