Optimizing your inventory process does not happen on an island

QuickBooks® holds an estimated 78% of the accounting software market, so it makes sense for leading inventory management providers to develop complimentary solutions. Businesses evaluate inventory software ahead of other add-on applications because inventory warehousing is such a large investment. Small businesses that successfully optimize their cycle counts not only protect the bottom line, they gain competitive advantage.

Reconciliation is complex, and small businesses quickly outgrow cumbersome manual reconciliation. Has yours?

Evaluate your need for inventory and accounting systems integration by considering the following:

  • Does your product price vary or do you run promotions regularly?
  • Do you track inventory based on serial number, lot, date, pallet or any combination thereof?
  • Do you drop ship?
  • Do your vendors require minimum or maximum order quantities?
  • How do you decide which orders to fill, and based on what criteria?
  • Do you pick more than once a day?
  • Do you store inventory at multiple sites?
  • How often do you reconcile physical inventory?

If you are experiencing difficulties accounting for these issues in your small business, a robust inventory management solution will streamline your business processes (not to mention save time and frustration). An integrated solution ensures that your customers, accounts, and inventory remain accurate: the information is always accessible at your fingertips.

Save time and labor expense; save money from optimal warehousing practices; master your cash flow and maximize your business’s health.
