About Acctivate Inventory Management

Acctivate is an inventory management system that offers small and mid-sized inventory-focused businesses using QuickBooks a centralized platform to manage inventory operations, order processing and customer service.

This powerful (yet easy to use) suite of tools that brings together inventory management, purchasing, barcoding, serial number traceability as well as eCommerce and EDI provider integration.

With Acctivate’s inventory product screen, distributors have quick and easy access to real-time information on inventory quantities, orders, costing and product specifications. Since users can monitor and manage purchasing, warehouse, sales and fulfillment activities in real-time, Acctivate’s inventory system equips management staff with complete control and full company visibility. To enhance inventory operations further, Acctivate enables users to handle multiple units of measure, manage products made on demand (kitting) or made to stock (assembly) as well as organize products with different descriptions to accommodate different user groups and needs. Users can also manage transfers, physical counts, fulfillment, deliveries, breakage and customer returns simply and efficiently.

Acctivate includes purchasing management technology allowing distributors to control daily procurement activities. With Acctivate’s advanced purchasing tools, users can simplify the creation of requisitions, handle requests for quotes and purchase orders and automate routing and approvals. Users can also analyze spend data, identify obsolete products, receive low stock alerts and maintain policy compliance. As well as centralizing inventory and purchasing data, Acctivate also manages customer contact, sales and order information all in one place.

Acctivate integrates with major web store software platforms (Magento, Shopify, WooCommerce, Amazon) to allow users to secure one click-orders, tracking information, product availability and automatically synchronize customer information.

    A product you can rely on from a consultant's perspective

    Reviewed on 2016/05/12

    Pros

    Acctivate Inventory is a full featured inventory management system that can be added onto QuickBooks easily and cost effectively. By doing so, a QuickBooks user can extend the useful life of QuickBooks without needing to upgrade that accounting program. And it provides the same or better functionality than many inventory modules of many ERPs. This is an excellent product that is from an equally excellent vendor whose attention to customer service and details are superb.

    Cons

    I like the functionality of the product first and foremost and its ease of use. The vendor's training program is excellent and as I mentioned above their customer service is very very good as well. I am a business consultant to many companies and have never hesitated to recommend Acctivate,

    Bloated software with poor support.

    Reviewed on 2019/03/05

    Pros

    There are many features available, even if difficult to manage.

    Cons

    Support...
    I have been dealing with a print error from Acctivate and have had a ticket open for over a week now with only back and forth email communication. If you call the support number, you will eventually be dumped into voicemail and they sometimes have never returned a call, when they do it takes days.

    A business is not able to conduct good business with this software when support is this poor and lacking.

    Acctivate is a really good inventory control system and it is pretty easy to learn and it has a lot of capabilities and we love it. But here are the problems I have had. I have had numerous problems with technical support, and it has only gotten worse instead of better. In order to reach customer service now, you have go to the Acctivate website and enter a service request, and you may or may not get a prompt reply back. When we are having technical problems with this program, it can bring our entire operation to a halt and there doesn't seem to be any sense of urgency on the part of the technicians at Acctivate. This is my biggest problem with Acctivate and it the one thing that makes me very angry. My only other problem is training. This is a very complex program, and you can learn the basics pretty quickly and that will get you by. But there is no formal training to teach you everything you need to know other than videos that you can watch and some webinars. I think there needs to be a trainer that can teach new users how to use the program in depth at your facility in Arlington so that customers that have purchased the program can spend 3-4 days with some in depth training. I have had this system for over 2 years now and we are still finding new things that we have never seen or used before. When we purchased Acctivate, they do a great job of getting you up and going and answer any questions you might have, but some real hands on training would be so much better. But once you get used to the program, it's great.

    Acctivate works relatively well

    Reviewed on 2017/06/09

    Pros

    Acctivate is relatively easy to use. Tracking activities, customers, and orders is straight forward and easy to follow.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge with Acctivate is that it seems to crash for no obvious reason and sometimes with no warning. When this happens, whatever is being worked on is lost.
