This app is amazing and simple and seemlessly does exactly what it needs to. I am only not using it because of the price. amazing other than that.

Mum's Medicine Cabinet Pty Ltd

The app is intuitive with smart, automated features. Definitely a must-have if you're selling products with batches and expiry dates. Inventory batch bulk updates are quick & easy with CSV uploads. Beyond that, the team have always been helpful and accommodating with feature tweaks.

Thanks so much for your review! 🌟 I'm glad that you find the bulk upload feature easy to use. Thanks for all your feedback to help us grow!

FoodCraft Online Store

We use this app to manage our inventory's expiration day so that we do not over sell expired items and can also speed up the sales of the stock that are not moving quickly. The App has been ever evolving and gets better each month. The customer service is top-notch and they are always on top of the issue and the team will help you with your requests. We now use freshly to print out all our order sheets so that our staff know which batch to pack for the orders that came in ( first-in-first-out). We love this App and will highly recommend it to businesses that handle items with expiration dates.
