What do you like best?
WASP Inventory Control has a lot of features built in to a very affordable and customizable package for use in self-employed to small business sized companies. The menus are very easy to view and use and the administration is super easy to manage.
What do you dislike?
The only area where I feel the software comes up a little short is being able to customize the built-in forms and reports on your own. You cannot edit the forms and reports that are generated by the software. These forms are created by crystal reports and if you want them customized (i.e. having a company logo or changing the order of fields or labels of fields and boxes on your purchase order printouts), you have to pay WASP or a WASP Reseller to customize the report for you and then provide you with the new form report file to install on all of your workstations that use the software.
Recommendations to others considering the product
If you need a quick solution to setup and manage your purchasing, inventory and barcoding needs, this is a super affordable package that can you get you up and running in a day or 2 without a steep learning curve! Setup is easy and quick. I do recommend having a centralized server to load the database on. Install on the server first and select the option to install the database. Then, on all workstations, don't select the database install option during installation. All you have to do is put the server name and database name in the fields when prompted during installs on workstations to get it working.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We utilize WASP Inventory Control to handle all of our purchasing and Inventory needs. It works very well in most cases but sometimes we have to invent some solutions to do a complicated order with custom parts, design requirements and services. Overall though, it works great for most of our needs. There are quite a lot of features that are helpful if you take the time to learn them and train your staff on their processes.
