The Best Quickbooks MRP for Ambitious Manufacturers

“This software has saved me nearly $20,000 in annual payroll. THAT is how much time it has saved us: 20 hours a week of counting, spreadsheeting, ordering and fixing mistakes. Now that I have Katana, I can’t live without it.”
— Kelly Costello, Puppy Cake CEO
Katana has been specifically designed for the needs of modern manufacturers who want to scale.
Finished Goods & Material Availability
Katana takes available raw materials and automatically allocates them to production orders, as well as finished goods to sales orders. Built in batch traceability with expiry date tracking allows you to use the right stock at the right time – at the best quality. Real-time updates of inventory and operations, and complete order fulfillment at your fingertips.
Bill of Materials (Product Recipes)
You can create a specific bill of materials (or product recipe) for each product and product variant. Plus you can add both materials and subassemblies to your recipes. Based on your bill of materials, Katana will make automatic inventory adjustments, calculate manufacturing costs and check the availability of materials for manufacturing orders.
Priority-Based Production Planning
With Katana’s unique manufacturing tracking system, you can simply drag-and-drop to prioritize manufacturing orders. The priority of manufacturing orders affects material availability and production deadline calculations. Stay in control of your operations and never miss a deadline again.
Multichannel Sales Support
Centralize all your sales orders into one visual dashboard and gain multi-channel inventory visibility. Track the status of manufacturing orders at multiple locations and inventory levels at different warehouses.
Shop Floor Level Control
Track floor level operations digitally with the Katana shop floor mobile app and establish paperless tracking. Katana allows you to prioritize the task list for every operator and production line, with built-in time tracking. Create and manage shop floor operators from your MRP. Retain control of production progress for MOs with shop floor task progress (WIP) updated directly in your MRP.
Updates in Real-Time
Quickly get an overview of tasks in progress (WIP) with automatic order updates in real time directly in your MRP. Removing the need for daily or weekly basic status updates and inefficient spreadsheets. Get multichannel inventory visibility and manage various sales channels in one easy-to-use, visual platform.
