Katana Mrp

Katana is a cloud-based inventory and production management software for small to medium-sized manufacturers and e-commerce businesses. The system integrates with sales channels, accounting software, and other apps to provide a real-time view of inventory levels, orders, and production schedules from one platform. Katana's interface uses visual boards to plan and track the production process through various stages — from raw materials procurement to finished products — allowing users to optimize workflows. Advanced features include automatic material ordering and smart auto-booking that prevent stock-outs by reserving inventory for specific sales orders or manufacturing jobs.
