Unleashed was founded in 2009 when Greg and his small team joined Massey University’s eCentre on Auckland’s North Shore. The early stages of the business were more about validating the business model and product market fit. The early adoption for cloud inventory management software was very promising, and so the company began its journey in starting to raise capital and build an amazing team. In 2013, they left the Massey University’s ecentre for sunny Takapuna. Their office on Hurstmere Street is where all the innovation and progress happens. This is the place where they’ve celebrated their achievements like raising further capital, and being recognised as one of the fastest growing tech companies on Deloitte’s Fast 500 and many more. Below is our interview with Gareth Berry, the CEO of Unleashed Software:

Q: What are the benefits of using Unleashed Inventory Management Software?
A: Powerful inventory control at your fingertips:
Lost revenue as a result of lost sales can have a significant negative impact on your bottom line. Our cloud inventory program is specifically designed to ensure that a scarcity of in-demand product does not arise due to inefficient inventory control within your organisation.
Keep your inventory accurate:
Inventory management is all about accuracy. Without trustworthy inventory data, it becomes a challenge to know how you are trading and make informed business decisions.
Make the move to real-time perpetual stock management:
Many businesses undertake periodic stock counts to understand sales trends and inform reordering decisions. A key problem with this method is the inaccuracy that occurs when actual inventory levels differs from what is on the books.

We also have a mobile application for the sales team on the road.
