    "This app has really made it easy to keep track of stuff for our software startup. We were presented with a bunch of programs and tools to do the job, but all were incredibly expensive and clearly meant for businesses with money to burn. For just $5 though, this one does everything we need."

    "On Shelf is a decent app for tracking inventory for a small business. I like that I can sync data with multiple users and that I can import descriptions. It can get a little clunky when I have many items in a category to keep track of, but otherwise the functionality is pretty good."

    "This Chrome extension didn't work for what I wanted it to do. I need a program that lets me track how much inventory I have on hand that I can sell. Lend Items tracks who you let borrow something so you know who to talk to in order to get it back."

    "I have a small business and I don't dropship I have stock and a lot of it. This software looks like it has even more than I thought I needed. It would be something that I could grow into to use all of the feature. I can even track the components of my widgets before I make them. There are so many features that I can be uber organized and the first user is free. I don't have any staff, unless you count my cat, so that seems pretty good."
