Katana is a full featured MRP solution for SMB. Setup was fairly easy and intuitive. The shop floor app is very simple and once some time is taken to get your workflows set up, it's simple for operators to use. I wish there were more item types, or assembly/BOM levels.
We've been using Katana for a couple months now after switching from another MRP solution, and we're extremely happy with the transition. The user interface and work flow is intuitive and required essentially zero time to learn. Tracking batches/lots is efficient and has reduced labor substantially. There have been a few minor kinks where we've needed to develop a workaround, but the customer support is phenomenal -- very helpful and quick to respond. Highly recommend.
Honestly, took the entire team VERY little time to learn the process. That alone is HUGE for us. Plus their customer support has been tremendous. We couldn't recommend Katana more!!
