    Fantastic support!

    It has been a pleasure dealing with the support team. Extremely helpful people and engaging conversations when assistance is required. The software itself is well thought out works perfectly for our company. The continuous improvements are great to see as well. Keep it up Katana.

    Does everything it says it will

    That may not sound very exciting, but in the world of software, it's not always a given that things will operate seamlessly, first time. However, that's exactly what Katana has done. It's pretty powerful, which means that there's quite a lot to it, and I found that the investment of a couple of hours to watch the basic training video, which outlines how it all works, and then some subject-specific (much shorter) training videos, was really worthwhile. Once I'd done that, the setup was straightforward and the integration with Xero so simple I was left thinking "Is that it?!" (in a good way!) The one or two very minor niggles I have are just that - minor, and the support team (who are great, even though it's all online) seem open to listening to suggestions from users for future tweaks/adjustments. All up, I would definitely recommend.

    Easy to set up - easy to use

    We've been using Katana for almost 12-months now, and it has helped us create efficiencies in our supply chain, more closely monitor our production scheduling, and tighten up on our inventory management. It is easy to use and easy to navigate so the whole team can benefit.
