What challenges did Outspoken Cycles face before using Stock&Buy?
Before Stock&Buy, our main challenge was the limited inventory management capabilities of Shopify. The inventory costing component was particularly restrictive, making it difficult to calculate profits accurately. We needed a solution that provided granular insight into profitability and allowed real-time stock tracking, especially for our growing business.

Yes, we have used other inventory management software like TradeGecko and Dear Inventory. However, Stock&Buy stood out due to its robust core functionality, ease of use, and cost-effectiveness compared to competitors.
Did you have any initial reservations about using Stock&Buy?
I’m always cautious about trying new software as it can be time-consuming. Additionally, Stock&Buy seemed narrow in scope initially, which raised some concerns. However, the intuitive interface and the prompt response from the support team helped alleviate these reservations.
