“Katana knows in real-time if we have enough stock to make the orders that are due to ship soon AND when we need to order more materials to have them in time for orders that are coming due in the future. In addition, Katana is not "too big" for us like a lot of the other solutions we looked at which are designed for traditional mass-production manufacturers. Katana is the only solution we found that is made FOR the small, make-to-order manufacturer.”
