    As a small manufacturing business, we searched and tested many accounting and MRP platforms and determined that Xero and Katana provided the solution we were after. So easy to use with impressive functionality. Super easy to integrate.

    After unsuccessfully trying other management systems we found Katana. As a new business we don't have a lot of resources however we have found that katana makes a significant reduction to our manual workload. By taking the orders from WooCommerce and now from our order platform via Zapier then automatically invoicing through Xero, we are eliminating unnecessary work that only complicated and clouded our operations. We are happy that Katana listens to what the users want and continuously improves their service to make our lives easier. Xero and Katana make a great combo which we will be using for the foreseeable future.

    We have only just started using Katana and only found it due to us using Xero. We have found it really easy to import data and like how well it integrates with Xero. The online training and help section is excellent I would highly recommend this software
