Inventory.xlsx – the most powerful online inventory application

The keen-eyed among you may have noticed the “Secret Stealth Project” listed on our website.  Today, we are proud to announce the public release of Inventory.xlsx; a state-of-the-art, online inventory application.

Inventory.xlsx is the culmination of three years of dedicated research and development effort.  We took everything we’ve learned from our wildly successful first product, inFlow Inventory, and brought it to the world’s most popular spreadsheet program – Microsoft Excel.  Now, for the first time, the inventory tracking power of inFlow is available on both the Windows and Mac platforms.

With Inventory.xlsx, collaborating with colleagues couldn’t be easier.  Just make a change to the file, save it, and email it to your colleague.  We are able to leverage a system that everyone is comfortable with, email, to provide top-tier cloud collaboration power*.

We’ve even included an email :mailto link field to send out invoices directly from our application.  Just click on your customer’s email address, and an email will automatically be created in your favourite email software.  Making invoices for your customers is as simple as clicking a link, typing in their contact info, adding your items, formatting the header & footer, printing it out, and, finally, walking to your closest mailbox (the physical one).

Three years may seem like a long development cycle for an inventory application, but we encountered many challenges along the way.  For example, when we started, we were using the most popular spreadsheet format at the time – .xls.  But to deliver the most cutting edge technology, we added an “x” at the end.  Adopting the .xlsx extension places us at the vanguard of technology.

We’re really excited to get this in your hands.  Until March 33rd, we are making Inventory.xlsx application completely free to download.

Get your Inventory.xlsx for free today!

 

*Coming Soon: We aren’t done yet.  We’re busy porting Inventory.xlsx to Google Drive Spreadsheets.  When we’re done, we will unleash brand new ways for you to collaborate with your colleagues in real-time.  Stay tuned!

    Thanks for this. I have struggled for years to setup a good inventory management system. Your excel file is just what i needed and keeps me organized!

    when i downloaded this program i was told that the lifetime license was $299. when my trial expired, they changed the pricing to $399 per year. when i contacted them to let them know that they bait and switched us, they offered a 25% discount on the first year. i told them that i was going to leave a hundred reviews telling potential customers about their business tactics and i got no response. i guess this is what happens when you do business with archon and inflow inventory management. please share and comment on this review to help us spread the word to others. i am listing the live chat conversation below:

    (06:42:27 PM) Christian: yes, i am trying to purchase the lifetime license for $299 like advertised when we started our trial. how do we complete this transaction?
    (06:46:44 PM) *** Siobhan joined the chat ***
    (06:46:53 PM) Siobhan: Hi Christian, thanks for logging in!
    (06:48:03 PM) Siobhan: I’m afraid the v2 licenses were $299 USD but we are no longer selling those licenses. v3 licenses are $399 USD for the regular edition (as of the release of v3 in early September
    (06:48:59 PM) Christian: thats called a bait and switch and is illegal. if you dont provide what was promised when we started our trial, we will be forced to leave about a hundred negative reviews, contact archon directly and start litigation.
    (06:49:25 PM) Christian: you dont do that to people like us
    (06:49:39 PM) Siobhan: I’m really sorry for the confusion Christian and I assure you it was not intentional. Can I please clarify the email address that you had signed up for your trial under so I can look into this further for you?
    (06:51:14 PM) Siobhan: As I mentioned, it’s likely that you were trialing v2 (which was $299 USD) and that we have since released v3 (a completely different version of the program) for which there is a different price. That having been said, let me see what I can do about getting you a one-time discount to the v2 price. Are you available at that email address?
    (06:51:59 PM) Christian: what does that mean? that you are doing what was initially promised?
    (06:52:23 PM) Christian: yes, that is my email address
    (06:56:45 PM) Siobhan: Great, I will follow up with you there once I’m able to confirm what we can offer.
    Let me try to clarify: so in the time that you’ve been testing the system we’ve since moved to a new version (which is why the price is different than what you would have originally seen on our website, since we are now selling a different version). That having been said, since you began the trial while we were still selling v2 and we no longer offer that version what I’d like to do is offer you a one-time discount to allow you to purchase v3 licenses (the new version with all its features) at the v2 prices.

    EMAIL FROM THEM TO ME AFTER THE LIVE CHAT:
    Siobhan, Jan 12 14:02:
    Hi Christian,
    I just wanted to follow up with confirmation and a promo code for your purchase, should you decide to go ahead with the purchase of v3. As discussed, since we’re no longer selling v2 we’d like to offer you a one-time discount to purchase v3 license(s) at the v2 pricing. With that in mind please feel free to use CHRISTIAN25 to get a 25% discount on your purchase of inFlow. You should see that discount applied before you proceed to payment so please do let us know if you have any difficulty there. This discount code will be valid for one week from today and should you have any other questions or concerns please do let us know!
