“Over the last eight years, I have used a series of inventory programs for my small manufacturing and sales business. It takes a lot to migrate to a new platform and each move was an improvement. But Katana, finally, is exactly what I need. Intuitive, no bells and whistles I don't need, Katana is one of my best assets!”

“Katana support is terrific. Katana is simple, clean, and effective. Easy to use. When we have encountered questions, Katana has been very responsive with support. No app is perfect, however, Katana's team makes it a real winner.”

“Katana was perfect for our small high-end engineering company, using over 800 components to virtually build items ahead of time allows me to view my projected stock and manufacturing process like I never thought possible.”
Motorcycles & parts
“The best thing about Katana is that you can follow the whole process of manufacturing. We have tried many similar softwares but they usually lack some crucial components in the manufacturing pipeline. The user interface is extremely easy to use, and their customer support is extraordinary, too.”
