But sometimes, growing businesses have questions about whether we are the right solution for them or not.
So, we decided to explain exactly who DEAR Inventory was made for, what challenges we solve, and a few tips you can use right away to improve your inventory management.
By the end, you’ll know who we are and if we can help you grow your business.
DEAR Inventory is a cloud-based inventory and order management platform designed to help startups and small businesses take the time and stress out of managing their inventory and sales.
It was made to help at least two types of businesses:
Our easy to learn and implement platform and industry-leading pricing make us the ideal solution for small businesses and startups who are just making the leap from manual or outdated inventory and order management methods like inefficient spreadsheets to a more streamlined and automated modern solution.
Every business has their own unique challenges they have to overcome to succeed, and our customers were no different.
Even though each business had specific problems related to their particular industry and niche, almost all of our customers experienced similar challenges when using manual methods of inventory management.
DEAR Inventory works with businesses to solve their most pressing problems. Here are the 3 biggest solutions DEAR offers their customers:
DEAR integrates with top ecommerce platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, Magento, as well as top marketplaces like eBay, Etsy, and Amazon. We also integrate with top accounting, sales, and shipping platforms like Xero, PayPal, Capsule CRM, and ShipStation.
DEAR Inventory tracks your orders and inventory in real-time, so you have up-to-the-minute insights into your stock levels and fulfillment processes.
We also automate the tracking and reporting of inventory from sending purchase orders, receiving raw goods, manufacturing and warehousing, to sale fulfillment and pick, pack, and ship generation.
DEAR’s internal accounting system matches industry best practices, allowing you to establish the true cost of your goods.
Real-time financial data helps you maintain healthy cash flow, while our powerful financial reports help you make the right decisions to keep your business growing.
DEAR pulls together all of your inventory, sales, and financial data into one central platform that is easy to learn and implement.
The user interface allows you to switch seamlessly between any of your applications for quick task management and a host of different reports and metrics are available at your fingertips to make smart business decisions.
There are a variety of ways that businesses of all types, sizes, and industries can improve their inventory management.
The original idea for DEAR Inventory was to create a platform for accurate and actionable accounting.
DEAR is actually an acronym for “Double Entry Accounting Record.”
Our goal was to make it easy for businesses to use actual accounting costing methods instead of problematic methods like cost-averaging.
We believe that financial projections and accounting act like a scoreboard for businesses – and what separates successful small businesses and startups from those that fail is fully understanding and making decisions based on this scoreboard
Because Xero has earned its way into becoming a top accounting platform for hundreds of thousands of subscribers, we knew our shared values, and complementary solutions would make for a great partnership.
