The software does everything they say it does and the ECI technical support and customer service people are great!


Before the switch, we would do cycle counts on paper and then manually change quantities for each item in our database. Now, if we’re doing a full inventory, all we have to do is go out on the floor, scan the items and enter quantities into the system. And we don’t need to close the store to do it.
