Hi,

Sorry, we don't have this functionality yet. But it's something that we may consider working on in the future. To help us understand, may I ask what you'd be hoping to be able to do on your iPhone in conjunction with inFlow?

Hi Jay,

It sounds like that might work. I believe to be able to import that information into inFlow, you would either have to have the Item Name/Code to be imported (perhaps by setting the Item Name/Code to be the same as the barcode). What application are you using on android to scan the barcodes? You may also consider a wireless barcode scanner connected to your laptop, depending on the range required.

What I find quite odd is how an app for iOS is even in question. You should simply have one. That's why I don't use this program. When I am at art walks I want to be able to track my inventory on my iPhone/iPad and have it sync to my PC when I get home. Get that up and running quick!

I sell Weight loss products, and when i take one or more out of inventory, I could just tap the name of my contact, and product, and then sync it to my desktop with inflow. Then i could utilize the restocking and other cool features that you have. I am really really impressed with your software so far, and I thought that maybe you had an APP to integrate the two.

Thanks for clarifying, Casey! We are thinking about ways to help people take orders on the go, but nothing available yet.

Would be nice to utilize the ability to see inventory or use a tablet ( ipad) to count physical inventory. Would be nice to have the barcode scanner use on the phone too.

I agree with Casey, I too love your features, but I need something for sales reps that are mobile. We all have Iphones!
We have issues with sales rep orders, as they cant visually see the stock on hand. Plenty of phone calls through out the day to check stock levels which holds everyone up
If we could get 'online' then it shouldn't matter type of mobile device as long as it has internet ability, so all sales orders are updated live as they come in which is the preference.
I am impressed with the fact that InFlow is a process automated system as opposed to nearly all CRM which are discipline orientated (great deal of effort & mantainence to best advantage).
I will look at the knowledge base on how others have done this successfully

I sell my products at County Fairs and trade shows. I would like to see an application where I could record my transactions with my iPhone throughout the day and then sync to a PC at the end of the day. Scanner Capability would be heaven!

Hi Ingrid, thanks for the feedback. As I mentioned in the other thread here: https://getsatisfaction.com/inflow_in... it's not currently possible however you can always choose to use a remote connect app. That is discussed in a little more detail here: http://www.inflowinventory.com/softwa.... Hope that helps!

Please let me know when I will be able to use this software in my iPhone/iPad. This software is exactally what I need, but is missing the integration. I sale in different countries and this is 50% of my business, so very important to have a difference currency. I hope that it calculet by it self on reports and graphics.
I would buy it today it had those features. I have to say that the price is a little expensive. We can find apps on the Apple Store that gets very close to the inflow, but not yet :-)
Best Regards
Eger

Hey Eger,

We do have multiple currencies so you may want to look into that but as Yun mentioned above, we've no formal plans for a mobile version right now. Feel free to grab the free edition here: http://www.inflowinventory.com/softwa... for a look and please let us know if you have any questions or concerns! Remember, we're PC only right now so you'll have to have a PC to install the free edition.

Thanks again!

we not installing your software on iphone ios but only accessing the pc from the iphone . using 2x client, u can even browse thru windows explorer, etc
but again i have no knowledge about ur software restriction regarding the no of users. the 2x client software gives the user an option for a software installed on the pc, to be able to view on an iphone without the need of the app.

Oh, I'm sorry; I didn't realize 2xclient was the name of a software/app! We've not tested this with inFlow but it may work that way (except that the screen may be a little small to read) but thank you for the information!

Is there any news on a ios app? This would be incredible. We use inflow in our Cell phone/accessories company. We have branched out and now have 2 store on the verge of another. Having this on the go or in the store in the hands of the sales reps would be...the cherry on top! Thank you for all you all have done with inflow.

Hi Marco, no official plans for an iOS app yet but as Sachin mentioned above, he's using a sort of connection software to manage that relationship. We'll be sure to update this thread if something changes on this score but for the moment we're not planning to integrate to mobile just yet.
