Stockbot Inventory Forecasting , 55 reviews
First of all, i tried all apps for forecasting that are below 300€ per month.
This app isnt the most beautiful one, maybe it is in the top 3 of ugly designed apps ive ever used before in shopify. BUT it is exactly doing what it should and im absolute happy with the functions and the price, so im fine with using it even its not a design award winner!
thanks for that app!
Thank you for the candid feedback about the app's design :) and giving us a thumbs-up for the functionality! We agree that this app's design is out-dated. That is why we have re-designed the Inventory Forecasting feature as a separate app with new & improved features called "Inventory Forecasting Hero". I'm sure you'll like it this time! You can try it out here for the same price : https://apps.shopify.com/inventory-forecasting-hero
Updated review: Stock bot team took it up with Shopify for the excess billing done and have worked out the refunds to our account. I want to also share a feedback that we started to use this because we found the forecast data to be more accurate in stockbot compared to other similar apps. I suggest that they bring up the features that they promise in a time bound manner as the app still needs to bring features such as PO creations (which most other apps have), a much better interface and more enhancements. Thanks
Updated reply: Glad to hear that Shopify resolved your billing refunds. Thank you for sharing your feedback on product improvement. I'll share this with our tech team. We'll reach out to you for input before we start implementing them.
The automated reports in the morning and the app's simplicity are extremely helpful. Their customer service has been great. I'm excited to build more of my processes with them.
I downloaded about 10 apps and STOCKBOT was the most accurate. Love that you can customize lead times and forecasting is based on past sales for accurate analysis.
Thank you for that great review! We are glad you are finding the app accurate and useful. If you have any questions at all, feel free to message us from the Chat option inside the app. Happy to help!
We've tried this app specifically for the Forecasting feature. It's unfortunately very limited and quite useless, as it's only able to fetch the last year of data. Nothing before that, despite allowing to choose from broader dates.
Customer support wasn't very transparent about this limitation at first, but they were reactive, and helpful about the other questions.
We're sorry that we could not clearly answer your question over live chat. Yes, our app fetches sales data only up to the previous 12 months.
I'm glad you found out during your free trial that our app does not meet your needs. That's also why we offer a free trial.

This app is easy to set up, and does exactly what it says it will. Every week (or daily if you want) I get an email that tells me what items are below the threshold that I set. It tells me when I'm getting low, so that I have time to reorder the product before it runs out! Works great.
Definitely spring for the advanced version. I tag orders I want to watch with "Reorder" for my products, then set up Smart Collections that group them together for easy reordering. I have StockBot watch those collections, and I get an email by Product Type or Product Vendor so that it's easier for me to reorder them when the time comes. It's too cool!
Lastly, the guy running it is super helpful. He's taken suggestions I've given him and added them to his app, and usually responds to problems or questions within the hour. Can't beat service like that!
This app does what is expected of it!. Naren was very helpful in applying the email alerts to smart collections and this has helped me to keep my store stocked with various vendors' collections without any work on my part (or their part). It is everything I hoped it would be and more!
Customer Service has been very responsive to my needs. They are also willing to work with customers to update features when needed. StockBot works for us!
This app works perfectly for our uses. You can set the trigger quantity to suit your needs. Narender, the developer, is wonderfully communicative and always there to help! Great app!
Does exactly what you expect it to and if there is something you think is missing or should be considered Narin is quick to reply, discuss and if possible implement changes for optimal execution. Tension removed from accidentally running out of stock!
