Flexible software - good experience so far

Katana is a great tool that has adapted to our business needs and can scale as the complexity of our business grows. As an ecommerce business with retail channels, Katana has helped us take our inventory management to the next level. Drawback; pricing is a big jump if you're on the edge of Standard / Advanced. The onboarding could also be improved for the done for you option.
