TradeGecko will no longer be available from 10th June 2022
Intuit QuickBooks Commerce standalone product, formerly known as TradeGecko, will no longer be available from 10th June 2022.
Announced a year in advance, in June 2021, customer support will continue until the product’s retirement on 10th June 2022. For users in the US, QuickBooks Commerce will continue to be offered as a platform but current UK users will need to switch to a new product.
June 2022 might sound like life-time away, but if your company uses TradeGecko it’s time to start the process of moving now. Remember, moving systems that your business relies on day-to-day is not an overnight task – in fact, depending on the size of your business it will take between 4 and 6 months to complete. From trialling a new product, to transferring data, and training your staff to use the new system, there’s a lot to do before June 2022.
Guy Earnshaw, Director of Client Services: “The last 2 years has seen many of the inventory apps being acquired and for most this has only meant their apps are better funded and improving faster, but for TradeGecko (and also StitchLabs users in 2019) they now no longer have the business system the rely on to manage their product-based business! Thankfully there are a few great alternatives that many UK businesses are moving to.”
We would recommend organisations consider the product DEAR when making the move:
DEAR Systems is a similar product to QuickBooks Commerce (TradeGecko) – but actually come with more features and benefits.
DEAR is an advanced inventory management system. From accountancy to inventory, DEAR keeps everything you need in one place. It is also perfect for businesses that use more than one marketplace, as it’s compatible with a range of systems including WooCommerce, Amazon, Shopify and Xero. We recommend DEAR to all business sizes and importantly, all industries.
Ultimately, DEAR does everything that TradeGecko does and more. You can improve your warehouse features with this product – accommodating for multiple warehouse locations for an individual product, you’ll also benefit from advanced order processing, manufacturing features and better reporting. The outlook is that you’ll save time, paper and money when you switch to DEAR from TradeGecko. Cin7 is another alternative solution and is similar to DEAR in its capacities, connecting products, inventory and sales transactions.
