inFlow Inventory Free Edition

CNET Editors' review

Turning your passion into a small business is a very difficult task. But staying on top of the paperwork might just kill you. Fortunately, inFlow Inventory Software offers users an opportunity to organize every aspect of their business.

This freeware program has a clean interface that may be intuitive for people familiar with other inventory software programs. However, if you are not, there is an excellent training video and sample setup waiting to guide you through the program. inFlow is dominated by four major tabs for organizing a business. Sales, Purchasing, Inventory, and Reports each offer an interconnected way to stay on top.

By drawing information on customers, warehouse stock, pending orders, sales, and more, these tabs sync up nicely with a wealth of options that are certain to be useful for most small business managers. From providing customers quotes, looking at warehouse stock, and running reports on last month's sales, we were thoroughly impressed with this program's array of options and how simple they were to navigate.

inFlow's many options may not find use in every type of business, but this versatile program can be tailored to nearly any small business. We highly recommend this download for its ease of use, numerous options and free download.

    December 9, 2012  |   By KaiserGhost

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    This is the first time I ever wrote a review. This product is just perfect for business users. It has a pleasant interface and comprehensive features. It also has good customization.

    Cons

    Free version has limited features.

    Summary

    Excellent if you're willing to pay for it.

    "Massive features and incredible intuitive interface"

    August 14, 2012  |   By Xamsa_Squash

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    This is one of the greatest software I have come across. I NEVER take time to write reviews or comments, but this has me thoroughly impressed. In my previous job I was implementing the user side of Dynamics on sales, purchasing and inventory for a 2000 employee company. Now I have my own business, and so far have only used the free version, and its GREAT. When I grow into it, I will 100% certain purchase the full version.

    Please people, do the smart thing and use this software. Others might do the same or slightly more, but they are for sure going to cost you a lot more!

    Cons

    I use it for my small inventory across different locations and a website xamsa.com . As far as my use there are no cons., though keeping in mind that I have not tried multiple users, nor heavy operations or integrations.

    Summary

    These people have done what I always hope businesses would do. Make a Great product, spread it by making it free, get revenue because the product is proven and people love it!

    "Love it. Exceptional even for "larger" start ups."

    June 1, 2012  |   By Coffeerocks

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    - Very user friendly.
    - New personnel can learn fast.
    - Can produce all needed reports.
    - Great vendor/inventory management.
    - Multiple warehousing options.
    - Multiple options for pricing per needs.

    Cons

    Haven't discovered any yet.

    Summary

    We're a distribution and supply company, and the ease of which my employees - from sales reps to office personnel - have found inFlow to work for their needs has been great. They enjoy it way more than some of the other, pricier systems. The customization is great. Haven't needed to use inFlow's customer support much yet, but the little it's been used has been satisfactory. Highly recommend this software... I tend to think the negative comments here were kneejerk, and most likely operator error, as I have not experienced any of the problems they describe.

    "Inventory blocked on free to use version"

    May 6, 2012  |   By meglon978

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    Clean interface, easy to use if you're at all familiar with other basic accounting/business managing programs.

    Cons

    Inventory is blocked in the free version. As inventory is a fairly large thing in businesses, this program becomes more of a daybook/invoice maker.

    "Great Invoicing Software, But Useless As A Free Version"

    April 7, 2012  |   By Later2u

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    For free, it's great. Best free one I've tried.

    Cons

    In the free version, the fonts are so light on the invoices, quotes ect. that unless you are snail mailing these to customers, the program is useless. Making PDFs doesn't help and also, you can't even e-mail invoice with the free version. Hmm, wonder why. You can select darker type, but only in a paid version, and at $299.00, FORGET IT!!

    Summary

    No such thing as a free lunch. Time to invest a little money and buy an Invoicing Program from a reputable maker.

    "Excellent Piece of Software"

    April 5, 2012  |   By Eliyak

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    *Friendly Interface
    *Abundant Features
    *Customizable

    Cons

    *No serialized items

    Summary

    When it became apparent that our business needed inventory software to move forward, I researched various products. Among those I tested, most were, frankly, scary. I dreaded attempting to train staff to use the software correctly. Inflow, on the other hand, has a sleek, modern interface which is a pleasure to use. The look and feel helps make the user confident and eases the transition period.

    The paid version supports multi-computer setups, which was a key feature for us. The administrative settings interface also has an abundance of features and controls, which an experienced admin can worry about them without scaring the average user. One of these features is a user rights panel, where an admin can assign specific abilities to each user. Another great advanced feature is the ability to create custom invoices, reciepts, etc.

    Since I originally purchased Inflow, we have bought several additional licenses. We have also enjoyed periodic updates at no additional charge.

    When you buy Inflow, you are also buying the community and customer support that they provide at no additional cost. Feature requests are taken seriously, and any questions are usually quickly answered at their forum or in the online knowledge base. I have not had a similar experience with any other program, where I was able to speak directly to company representatives and programmers and be treated as an equal.

    Bottom line, Inflow is the most friendly and usuable inventory program out there. It is a professional piece of software that will last a small business until the day they can no longer be called "small."

    "YOU HAVE TO GET THIS!!! AAAAA++++"

    March 30, 2012  |   By bblawncare

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    Has everything you could ask for!!! Don't know where to start.
    Inventory, reports, client list, so much more!!

    Cons

    THERE ARE NONE!!

    Summary

    I started using the free edition of inflow a little less then a year ago and enjoyed the program so much that we upgraded. This is by far the best program out there for small businesses or that are on a budget. It has helped my company out so much, between invoices to showing reports of different kinds in less than a minute. If your like me you want something reliable and easy to use and worth the money, then you need this program, try it out for free, but within a few months you will want to upgrade.

    February 24, 2012  |   By Baroque1685

    Version: inFlow Inventory Free Edition 2.4.0.3

    Pros

    Installed; got a whole section of inventory work done; great easy interface.

    Cons

    1 week later, I click the icon, it says "loading, finally comes up and promptly crashes. Does this repeatedly. Cold shut down and try again, same. My hours of inventorying means nothing.

    Summary
