Katana’s bill of materials (BOM) is a tremendous help in our manufacturing and production management. Integrations with Shopify and Xero also play a big role in business management, helping us streamline our operations from sales orders to ready-made goods. We can now manage both B2B and B2C orders with greater ease.

As an organic food processor, traceability is a critical requirement, and our records must be meticulously kept. As one integrated solution, Katana replaced our many spreadsheets. Also, the integration with our Shopify store and accounting software was a key consideration, and Katana fulfills all these needs in a simple, easy solution.

4 / 5
We knew we needed more than spreadsheets but didn’t like the idea of paying a crazy amount for a huge system we would not fully use, and Katana was what we needed without a ton of fluff. Having a system track inventory and what stage it is in is incredibly helpful and has helped our team clearly delineate the order of operations for each product in our catalog.

5 / 5
In Katana, we can more effectively see and follow inventory levels and have recipes and bills of materials for our manufactured products that let us track and follow the manufacturing status of orders throughout the whole production cycle.
