Insightful Manufacturing Decisions

As a manufacturer, having a 360-degree view of your production costs and inventory status is essential for developing winning pricing strategies and minimising losses.


With DEAR, creating a detailed Bill of Materials for your entire inventory and subassemblies is simple, giving you a true picture of raw material, labour and overhead costs.


Never lose track of on-the-job costs. With DEAR’s Job Costing module, you can easily track your inventory and service-based expenses while a job is being undertaken, plus issue an invoice to the client with a built-in margin at pre-set milestones.


Embark on your projects with complete certainty over manufacturing costs and raw material availability. DEAR’s Finished Goods module gives you instant visibility into material levels and associated costs, as well as automatically ordering missing components.


Avoid losing time accounting for damaged or missing inventory. Our Issue to Production module makes it incredibly simple to write off inventory that has been lost, stolen, damaged, given away or used internally, and can be applied to both inventory and service-based expenses.

"Many Fold Farm is a small cadre of farmers, family members, interns, volunteers, and employees attending to the daily needs of hundreds of sheep and chickens (and a few hogs) happily living on pasture as nature intended. We use DEAR Inventory at Many Fold Farm to track our purchases of ingredients and sanitation products from supplier to final sale. We are required by the US FDA to track lot numbers for all our ingredients and for each batch of milk that we transform into cheese. We have never been subject to a product recall but feel well-prepared with all our information in DEAR"

"Our company are wholesale distributors of apparel, footwear and accessories. We moved to Dear Inventory as it was a well priced, cloud based, pay monthly (SAAS) system that integrated with Xero. Other systems we compared over the years that integrated with Xero were either too expensive, had huge setup fees or didn’t meet our other main requirement. Aside from Xero integration, our other requirement was the ability to create multiple variations within one SKU, what Dear call Product Families. I would recommend it to any company with similar requirements to our own."

"LUMATIV is a wearable technology company based out of Los Angeles, California. Just finished implementing DEAR as our inventory management system that seamlessly integrates with Shopify and Xero. Overall we’re very pleased with how simple and streamlined DEAR is. Takes a little bit (about a week or so) to work through the setup process and get familiar with the system but the support is amazing and help whenever you have a question. DEAR is robust enough to handle our product that has 6 sub assemblies and over 35 parts involved with 8 different manufactures. It replicates real world operations 1:1."
