As a long-term player in the industry, we have had quite an experience on many inventory management ERP’s. N41 proved to stand better than all these software with its unique qualities of custom design, wide range of features that supports eCommerce platforms and more importantly, its highly supportive technical team readily available either through phone or remote login service.

We wish we had started scanning years ago (with the N41 tradeshow mobile app) but we may have chosen the wrong system!! Yesterday we could have gotten 15-20 more orders (at the MAGIC tradeshow). So glad we waited and found N41 Apparel ERP Software! From the whole Caroline Hill crew, thank you for all you did to get us up and running on N41!!!
