We decided to make Backbar free because we developed a great product that we want to get into as many hands as possible. We recognize that it's not easy or fun to switch inventory systems or take a chance on a new product that may not be a fit, so we made it as easy as possible to use our platform.
In addition to our free Basic plan, we also offer paid subscription plans that have more advanced functionality and reporting. To see more information on the various plans, see our pricing page.

In fact, your data is likely much safer with Backbar than keeping spreadsheets on a single computer.
What happens if your hard drive crashes?
What if the laptop gets stolen?
What if an employee quits and leaves with the files?
What if you need to look up information, but the person who typically handles it is out sick or on vacation?
With Backbar, you have secure access to your information anytime, anywhere.
For taking inventory, the web and mobile apps both support offline mode. You can continue counting on your mobile device or laptop even if you are in a basement or wine cellar without internet. When you get a connection again, your counts will automatically sync.
Backbar allows only one organization account to exist for a business. If your organization already has an account, you cannot create another one. Instead, ask your admin to invite you to the organization.
If your previous admin no longer works at your organization, or you don't know who your admin is, please submit a support ticket and provide your organization details. We will require you to verify your ownership or employment by the organization before granting you access.
