    Hello,

    I just wanted to notify anyone coming across this that Megaventory is no longer BETA and that a new version recently launched which significantly improves upon the interface:

    Since the writing of this post a number of new features has also been added, so it’s worth visiting http://megaventory.com and going through a trial.

      Hi Ted,

      Thanks for taking the time to review our service – and in such detail and length actually.

      I’d like to take this opportunity to address a few of the issues you mention you had. Hopefully this can clarify things for future readers.

      – On Adding Product Quantities. Megaventory uses the Perpetual Inventory System in which the amount of inventory on hand is required to be accessible at all times by the system. This method maintains a separate account for each good in stock, and the account is updated each time a quantity is added or taken out. Quantity is added and taken out by creating Sales/Purchase Invoices (Goods Out/In respectively) because the Perpetual Inventory System requires that there must be actual figures and facts; the facts are the issuing of the Sales/Purchase Invoices. That is the reason stock should not be updated manually unless with an inventory taking operation (that also creates an adjustment document eg. a fact to account for breakage, theft etc.).

      – On Documents. Let me mention that although using external documents is a necessary evil for processing information in bulk/batches it also is possible to upload information more incrementally via the UI.

      – On data entry. It might seem counter-intuitive to *see* a new row appear when you reach the end of row you’re editing but in fact it’s really fast to be able to input data just by typing information and hitting tab to move to the next field (or shift tab to move to the previous one). Combine it with the fact that you can get rid of the excess line with Esc and you have the very powerful feature of being able to do data entry without touching the mouse. And although this might seem like a minor benefit for someone who’s just starting with a software package, after you’ve used the thing for hours and hours you’ll want the fastest option of getting things done.

      Other than that I’d just like to thank you again for taking the time to create such a thorough review!
