We are about to share with you how easy setting up and getting started is with Megaventory for your inventory management software.
Megaventory has been awarded one of the easiest setups for cloud inventory management several times. We’ve worked hard to make the process as easy as possible for you! Our team will be there for you every step of the way.
Megaventory is proud to provide top-level customer support throughout the testing and setup process. Whenever you have a question, you can just shoot us a message and we’ll help you out. In addition, to free training and set up help, you will have access to over 200 articles in our Knowledge Base. This includes step by step tutorials, answers to FAQ:s and more.
To get an idea of what setup with Megaventory, the cloud order and inventory management software application, looks like, check out the following steps!
Step 1 – Let Us Know a Bit About Your Business
We are available to chat on our website to answer any initial questions. In the beginning, we ask you to share what field you work in and what your basic need for inventory management software is. This way we make sure our concept covers your basic needs before we continue further.
In this first step, we are asking for basic information. Based on that we’ll be able to give you an initial confirmation of whether or not we’d be a good fit for you!
Step 2 – Book a Demo and Get to Know our Inventory Management Software
If the initial match is there, the best thing for you is to get straight on a free, screen sharing call with us. In this call, we demo our inventory management software for you and you answer any questions you might have. If for example, you need a feature we don’t currently offer but are planning on implementing in the future, we’ll suggest we get back to you when it is available.
Booking a call is easy. We give you a link where you can see our experts’ availability. You let us know a time that works for you, and we send you a confirmation. Booking a demo like this is great because it will take care of mutual availability as well as time zone differences.
Your time is valuable! No one wants to be wasting time on something that won’t end up bearing long-lasting results. This is why we help you evaluate Megaventory in detail right from the start.
Step 3 – Let Us Know if You Have Specific Requirements
Once you have booked a demo, we are open to receiving more details of the workflows of your business. A simple bullet list of what you want to track and what possible issue you are wanting to solve will help us put together a personalized demo for you. In the demo, we can show you how Megaventory can help you accomplish your business goals!
Step 4 – Demo
A free screen sharing demo will be held over zoom or skype. The duration of this call is from 20 minutes to 1+ hour. This depends on the complexity of your business and questions that arise during the demo.
We will summarize the key points for you afterward, as well as share the recording of the demo with you. This way you can go over it again if you’d like. You are welcome to bring your tech support along for the call or share the material with them!
Step 5 – Get Confirmation from Your Team
At this point, it’s a good idea to go over the points in the demo and any other insight you’ve gathered with your team. Depending on your business, you’ll want to bring this all to your superiors, peers, developers, etc. We are happy to answer any questions raised by your team. If there is a lot to cover, we can just schedule an additional demo call with them. The material from the first demo will be really useful for you as you present the solution to your team.
Step 6 – Start a *Free* Trial with Your Own Sample Data
After the demo, and once we have confirmed that Megaventory and your company would be a potentially good match, it’s time for you to start a free trial. We will upload your sample data into the system for you. Now you can look further into Megaventory with your own real-life stock and situations!
If you come against any questions in your trial, you’re always welcome to reach out to us via chat, email, or screen-sharing calls. We are there with you every step of the way.
Step 7 – Follow-up Demo for the Inventory Management Software and Issue Resolution
After you have had a chance to get used to Megaventory, you’ll have a pretty good idea of how it works and how it fits your business. If you have any questions, we will be happy to hold a follow-up call to answer them and find solutions together. By this time you will be familiar with our team of experts and developers, and working together will be a breeze.
Step 8 – Final Testing
Once we have gone through these steps, final testing for you is just a matter of making sure everything works well together. We are also happy to help you with integrating Megaventory with other solutions, like Woocommerce, Magento, Shopify, Quickbooks, etc. The goal in the final testing stage is that you are further familiarized with the software. You’ll also be able to help your team get on board.
Step 9 – Go to Production
You’re ready to go to production and take full advantage of all Megaventory has to offer. Whether your business works in manufacturing, retail, or drop shipping, you are fully equipped to take your cloud inventory management to the next level! By the time you start fully paying for your subscription, you already know that this is the best solution for you. And remember, even after initial setup and training, we are still here to help you if any concerns arise. Our goal is to make your business flow as smoothly as possible!
Don’t Do Everything at Once
We know set up can feel overwhelming, but it really doesn’t have to be! We encourage you not to get everything applied at once. Let’s start with the basics, and we can then add on more complexity!
For example, we can start with integrating your eCommerce platform to Megaventory, but leave an accounting integration for later. Onboard first only 5 of your users and then get the rest 15 on board. Apply Megaventory first in one or two locations and then implement it in the rest of your network.
Not doing everything at once will help your team get used to the program in small doses. You’ll also have time to make sure everything runs according to plan without having all 7 of your warehouses involved right away. You don’t need to worry about not having support from us if you don’t get everything done at once – our team is available after the initial onboarding as well. We love catching up with long-time clients whenever a situation occurs where they need our help!
Setting Up The Inventory Management Software Will Be a Unique Process for You
These steps and this order is what we’ve found works best for getting a full picture of how Megaventory works. It’s not a process set in stone though, so the order may vary. For example, if you’ve checked out our website, you’ll know that you can create a trial at any time.
The reason we encourage you to start with chatting to us and holding a demo first is that we want you to get the maximum benefit from your trial! However, people learn differently. What we care about is for you to feel comfortable in the process of getting on board with Megaventory. Trust us on this – we want you to have the best possible experience with us.
