What types of business is DEAR/Cin7 Core meant for?

Ask any eCommerce bookkeeper, and they will recommend DEAR as an inventory management solution for your eCommerce business. That’s because it integrates well with the online tools these types of businesses use.


What problems does it solve?

One of the most common problems for inventory-based businesses is the massive amount of time and energy it takes to manage that inventory manually. The problem is compounded as you grow your business and track more SKUs. Tracking inventory along multiple spreadsheets or locations also leads to frequent errors that ultimately affect your customer and your business.

DEAR (Cin7 Core) streamlines and simplifies your entire system. A specialist in inventory optimisation in Melbourne helps you input your data into the system so that these time-consuming, error-ridden tasks become a thing of the past.


Will it integrate with my existing bookkeeping software?

This is the best feature of DEAR inventory. The software integrates seamlessly with most cloud-based accounting software, meaning you get up-to-date information as inventory moves.
