Learn how Inventora started as a personal system that’s now helping thousands of businesses around the world.
Dianna Allen-Blalock and Jeremy Blalock, co-founders, originally built Inventora for one business. At the time, Dianna was desperately searching for an inventory system to help manage the raw materials in her home fragrance business. She recently took her business full-time and wanted to implement systems for success.
To her surprise, all of the inventory systems out there were designed for large enterprises. And what was affordable was lacking in the features she really needed. Out of frustration, she went back to her Excel spreadsheets, only to share them with Jeremy in hopes that he could help set up the formulas and equations that she was looking for.
Fast forward 72 hours and a deleted Excel spreadsheet, Inventora was created.
A few months had passed with Dianna happily using Inventora as her own, when one day she shared on social media about it. Next thing she knew, 15 people were on the waitlist to access Inventora. Together, Jeremy and Dianna, decided to share Inventora with the public. After tidying it up some for the additional use, they quickly had over 300 users sign up during those first two weeks. And since then… Inventora has never been the same.
Creating Inventora has been an eye-opening experience. To see the lack of resources for every day businesses has been devastating, but we’re here to fix it. Since the beginning, we’ve been committed to simplifying and streamlining business operations. Inventory can be a major headache and if you don’t have great oversight of it, it can cost you thousands.
Since February 2021 (our first public launch), we’ve been working endlessly to improve our feature set and be the leading solution for handmade businesses, makers, and manufacturers. Our team of two has now grown into six, and we’ve served over thousands of businesses. Thank you for being here with us… as we’ll always be here for you.
