Tidy Stock has just released batch numbering and product expiry dates, particularly useful for the food, medical and any industry with limited shelf life product. Traceability back from the customer through manufacturing back to suppliers is now possible, so complying with the statutory traceability principle of "One step forward, one step back" visibility.

Have used Tidy since May 2018. We were new to Xero and Tidy. The initial set up was quite a bit of work but since then it has worked extremely well. The Custom pricing function is a key function for our business, Tidy does this well. A couple of tweaks would be helpful, such as having the same Sale number in Tidy that then becomes the Xero invoice number automatically. Happy to recommend.

Tidy has made our stock management far easier and more transparent, and all the tracking of items allows us to better identify customer and product trends.

We have been using Tidystock for a couple of months now. While I found the initial set up support somewhat confusing, now that we are up & running we are really enjoying using it. Tidystock is saving us a lot of time and the technical support is really good. We are particularly finding useful the multiple locations and low stock levels facilities. We didn't want a system that was too complicated but it needed to have a lot more features than Xero inventory, and so far Tidystock is working very well for us!

We are a small business and tidystock has been so valuable to manage stock. What I really like is the simple interface, it is so easy to teach new staff members. Kathy + the chat team are always helpful. The only downfall is that it does not integrate with our shopify store (I believe they are working on this and a shopify intergration should be out soon) which will then make it a 5 star stock management system :)

great and very straight forward. good support, hope to see tidystock develop a mobile apps :)

As a small business owner, time is one of my most valuable resources. TidyStock has enabled us to manage a robust inventory and supply chain that simply wouldn't be possible with the size of our staff. I simply can't even begin to quantify how many man hours we have saved using this product over the last 4 years. To be quite frank, I'm not sure our business would have survived in the competitive marketplace we're in without a tool like this. Any time we've hit a snag with the program or integration (mostly all user error) the TidyStock team has been extremely responsive with their customer support. Overall A+++

When we’re trying to manage 1,500 different stock lines, making sure we’ve always got stock in hand and aren’t over ordering, and all our purchases are in foreign currency, there’s a lot to think about. At Espresso Road we like to keep things pretty simple. TidyStock is very easy to use, to navigate around and it just works.”

Cant see a way to show a report on screen only download PDF and view it. I wanted to be able to show stock on hand by warehouse. Doesn't seem doable. No sort function on reports that I looked at. Off to search for something else.

Interesting comments. I used this product for 12 months and could not wait to be rid of it. I now use the Zero system which does have some development to go but it is still better than this system as it is so user unfriendly given that if you did not fit the system it did not work for you whereas the zero system is much better for me. Must use training to understand the system benefits. Crap......listen to the user first.

I've recently started using Tidystock on the recommendation of Gillian Roussow from Jill of All Trades. I personally looked into many other inventory add-ons but decided on Tidystock based on Price, Service, User Interface, and the non-complexity of the setup. My staff learnt to use tidystock in a matter of hours and so far it has worked great.

I'm surprised that the commenter above did not receive an answer. I don't think I've ever waited more than 2 hours for a response. I find their customer service people to be one of the best things about the product. But, besides that, the functionality is outstanding. It's one of the few products affordable enough for a small business which does a good job with assemblies. It integrates very well with Xero. My only warning is that because it can do so much, you should definitely do the training. We made a few errors which were entirely our fault because we "winged it" instead of systematically learning the system.

Sent these guys an email asking for information and got absolutely NOTHING in return. Am now working closely with DEAR Inventory who have been great to date. The client we are looking at a system for is in the Nursery business.

Love this product, really good at kits, building kits, dealing with stock in many warehouses.

Tidystock is the add on I was looking for everywhere! Simple but effective! Great team to deal with too!

William Sandle  

TidyStock, we love it! A simple but effective system which integrates without a problem to Xero, aesthetically pleasing to use and well priced. The TidyStock customer service is outstanding, just fantastic to deal with. We're very happy to have made the right decision for our business inventory management system.

Sarah Walters  

We love TidyStock, the customer support is top class and the system is very easy to use, an absolute star compared to any stock system I have used before. Great to be in on the ground floor with this great system!

Rancho Costerlot  

I really liked how simple the integration with Xero is. Customer support has also been very helpful. I searched high and low for an out of the box and accessible stock management program that could let me track my materials through the production chain. TidyStock does it and the seamless integration with Xero sealed the deal for me. Awesome!
