We were advised by a partner company that having an experienced implementation specialist would have saved them months of painful rework and confusion for the more complex parts of DEAR.  We had an aggressive timeline to transition from our old system of spreadsheets and manual processes to a fully integrated DEAR solution with Quickbooks Online.  Understandably we were concerned as our accounting team and management staff had little or no experience with the DEAR Systems ERP.  Fortunately, our accountants had another client that worked with Stan at Inventory Technology Partners on a successful implementation.  After a brief meeting with Stan we were immediately convinced that he was the right fit to help us navigate the transition.  He took the time to understand our specific business needs and desired outcomes to craft an implementation that worked for us.  He was honest about the challenges we would face and always made sure that he presented options for us to consider when we needed to deviate from the initial plan.  Our implementation went extremely well and we were up and running smoothly in record time.  Words cannot express the value of our partnership with Stan!

With the advent of cloud-based solutions, advanced systems are now affordable for small and medium-sized businesses.  DEAR Inventory is just such a system, with features and capabilities once reserved for only the largest industry players.

Our selection of DEAR Inventory as a superior inventory management system resulted from a 2013-2014 project called the Vermont Lot Tracking Project, a 15-month project of thorough industry research and pilot testing of inventory management and traceability solutions.
