“If you need to manage production, track bill of material usage and component stock levels, Katana is a great app. A fraction of the cost of other systems and a much better UI for getting work done fast and moving on to something else more important. A bit simple at the moment, which is good and bad, but the team is evolving the app and service regularly making this an app worth investing your time and efforts.”

“This is exactly what we were looking for to manage our raw material, component and finished good inventory. I love how I can do a Make Order for X amount of units and it tells me if I have enough material and when I can make it based on when my materials are being delivered. This has saved 10-15 hours a week of inventory planning and it is so simple to use.”

“This software has been a great leap forward for us from an Excel-based system and it is easy to use. Using this system (< 6 months, Jan 2020) we have already seen improvements in planning production, stock control and costings. The access to their knowledge base is good and the support team is efficient.”
