Stitch Labs Shutting Down After Acquisition by Square

22 Jul 2020 06:17 PM Comment(s)

Stitch Labs Is No More

Starting immediately, Stitch Labs will no longer be accepting new customers as their company has been acquired by Square to help build out tools for the Square platform. As part of this, Stitch Labs will continue operating for their existing customer until Spring of 2021 at which point their platform will be shuttered. Changing WMS or OMS platforms is a large undertaking for any company, and being forced to do so in under a year will be a stressful transition. Below we will walk through some of the other options available on the market today.

The Stitch Alternatives

For those on the Stitch Labs platform, the question becomes, "Now What?" We're here to break down some of the alternatives on the market to help with a seamless transition for your business. Or if you're looking for an Order or Inventory Management System for the first time, this is also a great list to help you get started.

Stitch Labs says that they will help migrate customers over to the Square platform if they want to stay after Stitch Labs shuts down. However at this point it is unclear if the functionality and flexibility provided will match that of a full Order Management Platform or support the needs of most Stitch Labs customers. Until that time, we recommend checking out the other options in the market we listed above. Visit Square.
