Katana Cloud-Based Manufacturing Software:
Katana is a cloud-based software designed specifically for small and mid-sized manufacturers. The scalable SaaS platform caters to manufacturing companies requiring a robust and effective production planning, scheduling, and inventory control system to manage manufacturing processes.
All these operations are packaged into a single, unified system that presents manufacturers with relevant data including materials, production, warehouse status, sales and purchase orders. Katana’s interface includes a highly visual dashboard that provides users with a comprehensive view of the manufacturing business, orders, processes, and deadlines. Managers and business owners observe the areas within operations which are running smoothly, allowing a greater focus on specific areas needing improvement. This best-in-class approach brings lean manufacturing principles and practices to even the smallest manufacturing firms.
Katana seamlessly syncs work information and processes with QuickBooks, Shopify, Xero, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, and other similar apps to ensure orders are fulfilled and quotas never missed. With a single glance, Katana users make quick and intelligent business decisions based on reliable, real-time information impacting their business in the most positive and productive ways.
Katana is preferred over MRPeasy and Fishbowl by small and growing Shopify D2C manufacturers.
Perhaps of greatest importance to smaller manufacturers is the ability to pay monthly rather than a significant capital expense and achieve quick implementation within 7 days. Katana users start with a 14-day FREE trial.
