So far so good! I have run through up-tile MRP solutions, initially installing katana, and eventually came back to it. Its simplicity allow me to train others in to use it, and it functions well for stock management. I have a pretty extensive build procedure and it is able to track all my pieces and parts. You can bundle pieces together as well, then build a unit from multiple bundled parts.

Katana is the best ever. It makes everything so much easier. As an engineer that has worked for several companies using different ERP/MRP systems, this completely solves all problems with an incredibly easy to learn UI. It's so good that I am able to work alone, without needing to hire purchasing and project managers, and manage significantly more than I ever though possible.

Have been using Katana to keep track of our purchased materials, planning productions and keeping stock of our end products. Connects out-of-the box with Shopify and has a decent API to build custom connections with other systems/platforms. Had a good onboarding call with one of the team members. The roadmap looks promising as well. I like it stays very focused on the core of MRP/ERP and doesn't want to be yet another all-in-one tool.

Thank you for the review - our onboarding team are happy to hear from you! We're also excited to keep building Katana stronger over the coming quarters too, definitely including the API :)
