Worst SaaS experience I've had in the past 7 years running my company

When we started using DEAR Systems the costs was $40 USD per month. When choosing a SaaS provider for anything, you actually make a huge commitment and have to put a fair bit of trust in the provider. We had to integrate DEAR with various other services such as Xero. We created an internal knowledge base how to use it for common use cases, had initial set up costs, etc. We then populated it with years of data. Basically we were stuck with DEAR for life. Once we were fully locked into the system, DEAR made the absolutely outrageous move to increase their pricing from $40 USD per month to $375 USD per month for us. Unlike literally any other SaaS provider in the world, they did not grandfather existing customers with the original price, but raised the prices on everyone. In my opinion this is a predatory business practice. Price increases are fine - increase the price by 20% if you must, even on existing customers. But 10x from $40 to $375 combined with the extremely strong lock in? That honestly borders on being a scam. Now today what prompted me to write the review was another price increase by almost double from $375 to $625! As if this wasn't bad enough, DEAR Systems did not even announce the price increase but just started billing us twice the amount. DEAR Systems clearly hates their customers and can not be trusted. We'll be moving to a different provider as soon as possible!

Incredibly comprehensive, continually developing, and great support

DEAR is an amazingly comprehensive inventory management and manufacturing solution for (large scale) business. The granularity it provides for the production process is fantastic. For small-scale operations (i.e. small business), it's probably overkill, but if you need to manage stock movement and production on large scales, and aren't directly managing your staff, it's a great system. Once set up correctly, you can see in close or more general detail, the state of your business. The system also looks like it will excel for international business.
