Cin7 is a cloud-based inventory management solution, which allows it to track real-time data from multiple locations. The software synchronizes across all channels every five minutes, giving you up-to-date insights on your stock levels and sales any time of the day or night. That’s especially helpful if you’re running a lean inventory system (like just-in-time inventory)—after all, the faster you get your information, the faster you can place replenishment orders to avoid stockouts.
Cin7 also gives you a lot of flexibility when it comes to tracking your inventory. You can track products with the first in, first out (FIFO) method, with batch numbers, or with serial numbers, depending on the way your business keeps tabs on its stock.

Cin7 also gives you flexibility in your order fulfillment. If you have multiple locations or warehouses, you can route online orders to whichever warehouse makes the most sense for your business strategy. You can even automate this process, setting up rules that automatically send orders to the closest warehouse with the item in stock (so the customer can receive their order as quickly as possible). Order routing can be customized by geographical region, by shipping method, by inventory availability, and even by e-commerce code, giving you the ultimate flexibility in your sales fulfillment.
Finally, we love that Cin7 offers so much automation. In addition to automatically calculating local tax rates (even in multiple currencies), generating barcodes, and printing shipping labels, Cin7 can automate inventory tasks across your business. For instance, you can set up branch transfer rules that automatically trigger replenishment shipments from your warehouse anytime one of your retail locations runs low on stock.
The best part is Cin7’s inventory management options can be either simple (with a single location or fulfillment strategy) or complex (with multiple channels, products, locations, and customer types), which makes it highly scalable for businesses looking to grow.
