By providing all of this, plus cross-platform integration, sellers have found managing orders on Shopify a breeze and believe Katana has been an integral part of their business's growth.
“As our business has grown, it's been more and more difficult and time consuming to track raw material inventory. Katana allows us to easily see exactly how much raw material we have on hand. We also rely on the app to track finished good inventory and to create our daily production schedule. I also love how it tells us our profit margins for each individual fragrance (we make candles!). It integrates well with our bundles and sample packs too!”
