About LOCATE Inventory
LOCATE is the new premier cloud-based inventory management solution designed to take your mid-sized business to new heights.
What is your App’s name, what do you do, & when did you get published on Intuit’s Apps.com?
We are LOCATE Inventory, an innovative inventory management software designed for the small to medium-sized business (SMB) market. We have been in the Intuit App store since July of 2017.
What was the main problem you were trying to solve when you first developed your App?
SMB companies were outgrowing their inventory management platforms but didn’t want to sacrifice the familiarity and accessibility of QuickBooks accounting for a costly and complex ERP system. LOCATE was designed to bring enterprise-level inventory management into the SMB market.
What companies (or users) are the best fit for your App?
LOCATE’s customers span a diverse range of industries: agriculture equipment, specialty foods, fitness products and more. Whether a company has a straightforward operational process or needs powerful features like outsourcing, tracking, wave picking and multi-site fulfillment, almost any inventory-based business with at least 5 users can benefit from LOCATE’s best-of-breed inventory management.
Tell us about your users’ top 3 favorite features or benefits of your App.
First and foremost, our customer service is one of the first things users notice when they switch to LOCATE – our company values revolve around providing excellent support for our customers and we refuse to settle for anything less. Secondly, many of our customers utilize eCommerce platforms and they love how LOCATE’s included integrations help them manage their multiple sales channels efficiently and accurately. Finally, our continuously summarized transactions and internal inventory ledger are game-changers, especially for accountants. These features streamline the accounting process by eliminating the transmission of unnecessary data to QuickBooks while retaining comprehensive audit trails throughout LOCATE, keeping the QB file lean and clean.
Tell us about your company’s culture and leadership.
With 9 talented employees and 4 adorable dogs, LOCATE is like one big family – and not just because half of us share the same last name! We tend to keep things pretty casual around the office (you’ll rarely see our CEO wearing shoes) but our work ethic is anything but relaxed. Everyone here at LOCATE is driven, passionate, and self-motivated, so we have high expectations for ourselves and each other. Luckily, the empowering and supportive environment of LOCATE makes it easy to succeed!
How is your App different from your competitors?
Before building LOCATE, our company served as an accounting and inventory management consulting firm, which gave us a unique perspective into the daily struggles of growing SMB companies. We spent many years listening to our client’s pain points, taking note of their needs, and watching the limitations of their existing software hold our customers back. As their frustration grew, so did ours; and three years ago we finally said, “this market deserves better, and we can do better.” Our goal was to break the cycle of buying, implementing and outgrowing inventory management software, so we designed a platform that is accessible to smaller businesses, yet filled with the features and scalability they will need as they grow.
What is the pricing for your App?
LOCATE is $100 per user per month with a 5-user minimum and a one-time implementation fee that varies per company. Everything else is included with your subscription to LOCATE: support, mobile application, real-time tax calculations and integrations to major eCommerce platforms and shipping softwares. No hidden fees or tiered pricing!
Does your App have any programs for Quickbooks ProAdvisors?
We love QuickBooks Pro Advisors and currently offer a program for partners who want to recommend us to clients or even implement LOCATE themselves. We would also love to refer our current customers to Preferred Accounting Partners when they’re ready to learn more about best accounting practices for their business.
