Stitch Labs – Manage Inventory & Track Orders

Designers and crafters who sell their products online often struggle with the financial end of their business endeavors. After all, many of the traits that make a person good at designing products — creativity, artistry, and imagination, to name a few — are at odds with what it takes to be an organized manufacturer and seller of goods.

Stitch Labs is a tool that anyone can use to keep better track of the products and goods they sell online. More than just an accounting tool or a project management application, Stitch can help you manage inventory, orders, and expenses online. Authorize Stitch to access information from all the shopping carts you currently use, including Etsy and Shopify, and the web-app will begin syncing your product inventory, orders, invoices, contacts, and expense information in one centralized place. Inventory levels and outstanding payments are color coded on a main dashboard screen, making it easy to see when you’re running low on merchandise or running behind on product shipments.

By combining your sales information from multiple applications, Stitch is able to create detailed reports that show which products are selling the most and which sales channels are creating the most activity for your brand. Users can add additional employees to their company accounts, and they can get access to important financial records like sales income and expense documentation for accounting and tax-related purposes.

Practical Uses:

  • Run your online business more effectively
  • Keep a close eye on inventory to prevent backorders and shipment delays
  • Track your sales history to determine your best selling products
  • Get a printout of your total expenses and sales income from the fiscal year
