I’m an inFlow On-Premise customer, what’s inFlow Cloud?

Please note: we will sunset inFlow On-Premise on July 31, 2024. After sunset we will stop selling or activating new licenses for inFlow On-Premise and stop providing support (including online KB articles).

In the meantime we will still provide technical support to customers with an active Support Plan.

What’s inFlow Cloud?

You might have noticed that we have released a new product called inFlow Cloud. The data saved to the cloud is hosted, which means your data is online instead of on your computer. Now you’re not limited to your local network!

For more information please feel free to visit www.inflowinventory.com/cloud.

Why cloud-based software?

We’ve all had mishaps with our computers, but spilled coffee shouldn’t be the reason you lose important business data. With inFlow Cloud, you can relax knowing your data is safely where you left it: in the cloud.

Another benefit to cloud storage is the ability to access your inFlow database from anywhere with an internet connection. This means you’re no longer restricted to working in one place. You and your team can work from wherever you’d like!

What’s the difference?

When you launch inFlow Cloud for Windows, you’ll notice that it has the same look and feel as inFlow On-Premise so you don’t have to learn a whole new program.

inFlow Cloud was built for mobility and flexibility, with the added benefit that your data is stored in the cloud for safekeeping. inFlow On-Premise is great, but sometimes you want to take your work with you. With inFlow Cloud, you can, and we’ve added some brand new features too.

Take a look for yourself, and check out our side-by-side comparison for more information!

Multiple devices

With inFlow Cloud, you can use multiple devices. Get the full range of features of inFlow Cloud on your Windows computer, or check stock levels on the go with the Android and web companion apps.

Your data is safe and protected

Your inFlow data is safe, secure, and backed by Microsoft Azure, a trusted service recognized by EU and international cloud security and privacy standards. Your data will be backed up multiple times a day, in multiple locations around the world! This means you don’t ever have to worry about the safety of your data.
