59: Smart Workshop Software Revolutionizing The Way Modern Makers, Crafters, And Small Manufacturers Work

EP59 Katana

My guest on today’s episode is Chris Jacobs, from Katana, the smart workshop software platform that is helping Shopify brands that manufacturer and fulfill their own orders.

Katana allows you to manage your whole order fulfillment process from a single dashboard, including sales, manufacturing, and purchasing. As a Shopify brand owner, you get stock availability and fulfillment status for every order and with this production process, it means you won’t miss a delivery deadline ever again.

Forget spreadsheets or some homegrown hack. You can now automatically track raw materials, product stock, materials en-route from suppliers and products booked for shipping to customers. Just drag-and-drop orders to prioritize your inventory usage.

It’s time to add some digital efficiencies to your product production schedule.
