Alternative to NetSuite that was built in the 21st century

NetSuite has been around since 1998 and is considered the first cloud computing software company — this shows when starting to implement the system.

For large enterprises, hiring a dedicated team that spends months installing the system can make sense. However, companies in the SMB sector oftentimes are not able to bear such large implementation costs.

Katana offers self-onboarding and also has a dedicated onboarding team included in Advanced and higher plans to ensure a smooth experience when implementing the system.

Expertise from a dedicated support team

Legacy systems can have a very steep learning curve and they often outsource their support, which leads to a horrible customer experience.

In contrast, Katana comes with an easy-to-use interface, so you don’t need weeks of training before you start using the software. Katana gives you access to a professional in-house support team reachable via live chat, ready to answer all your questions should you need it.

This combination ensures that you can keep managing and growing your business without having to spend hours every day worrying about a software system that was supposed to make your life easier.

Single source of truth for your entire business

Business suites can make a lot of sense for large enterprises, but these often lack the flexibility needed for small and medium-sized businesses.

Katana’s bill of materials (BOM) is a tremendous help. Integrations with Shopify and Xero also play a big role in business management, and we can now manage both B2B and B2C orders with greater ease.”

Since implementing Katana, we’ve grown our product offering, and that wouldn’t be possible without it. It has freed up my time so I can focus on designing and creating more products. It also means that I am not working until 11 pm every night.”

I think that Katana had a much lower barrier to entry. It was still some work to get up and running, but I was able to gradually build my processes into Katana’s system over several months.”

Having a system track inventory and what stage it is in has been incredibly helpful. It also has helped our team have a more clear delineation of the order of operations for each product in our catalog.”
