Introducing Arda

Inventory💡Smarter. Not 😡 Harder.

“I really freaking love my ERP!” - Nobody Ever

Advances in integration and automation have made inventory management more, not less complex for the SMB


Managing inventory is mission-critical for any business that trades in physical goods but can take up to 20% of a team’s time.


SMBs find ERPs too expensive to be practical and too compliance-heavy to be functional. They are not viable for the majority of businesses.


As a result, ERP implementations very frequently suffer from the classic “Garbage In → Garbage Out” problem and often fail altogether.


Thousands of businesses, especially talented, dedicated founders and entrepreneurs, waste up to 20% of their their time in half-baked Excel-fueled chaos.

We’re Third-Time Founders With Highly Complimentary Skills Perfectly Suited to Modernizing Kanban.

Uriel and I are nerds who love to find efficiencies. Recent low-code, no-code platforms have significantly decreased the barrier to entry that once existed to developing a software product and I’ve become obsessed with continuously finding new areas of my life to automate. Uriel’s deep expertise in lean manufacturing as well as continuous improvement has been a tremendous resource as we’ve developed this product. Every new feature is tested at Austere, changed based on his feedback, and then released to our other customers. As a duo, we are the ideal combination to bring this product to market and solve a deep pain point that is felt by thousands of businesses throughout the world, Uriel felt it tremendously before implementing Arda

What I Told Chris Sacca About Our Team in 2017

There Is a Large Gap Between Excel and ERPs or Specialized Mid-Market Platforms.

Large, enterprise-grade, ERP platforms (SAP, Oracle, etc.)

Mid-market inventory management platforms (Cin7, Fishbowl, ShopMonkey)

What We Need

Help. Our demand is too much to manage and we are starting to not be able to see the forest for the trees a little bit. Strong mentorship and guidance from a professional with experience selling into SMB industrial customers would be massive.
A tangible plan to create our own software product. Right now, I built the entire product on Coda, which has issues with version control.
We have been selling very reliably to medium-sized businesses at $250/month. This product is capable of filling a significant void left in the market for larger businesses that require a higher SLA than the two of us can provide as well as further advanced features which may be contingent on an in-house software release. We need to figure out how to roadmap those.
We are consciously “doing things that don’t scale” and our sales process is very high-touch. I think we are a few months away from phasing out of that process and need a plan to turn Arda into a self-serve product for our $50/month Tier, along with an actual go-to-market motion that involves marketing spend, significant onboarding resources, like videos and FAQs,
We need help understanding the future of a professional services arm of this business. Onsite implementations have been successful, they’ve gotten us in front of our customers, and they’ve helped us solve a lot of problems. The degree to which our onboarding process should have an in-person component in unclear.
