A complete waste of time and dollars.

The Good…

Horrible system and customer service!

The Bad…

The system is not user friendly nor does it do what they say it will. Too complicated and expensive.

There is not enough customization. If somebody enters an item with one spelling, and another person spells it differently, the system records it as 2 items. It counts different measurements as different items rather than adding them together.
