Streamline Your Business with QuickBooks Inventory Software

Let BuildYourNumbers.com explain why you should use QuickBooks-compatible inventory software to integrate and streamline your systems.

Do you have an inventory? If so, how do you keep track of that inventory? Whether you’re already using inventory accounting software or keeping track of your inventory through lists, spreadsheets, or year-end adjustments, I’m about to show you how to make your life easier by leaps and bounds.

My secret: QuickBooks inventory software.

How Can QuickBooks Inventory Software Improve My Life?

QuickBooks is an integrated accounting system that provides all of the necessary elements for small businesses to keep track of their finances from beginning to end, including inventory software.

In other words, QuickBooks can do a lot of the work that you once did (or currently do) yourself.

If you’re using a different inventory program, Intuit Enterprise Solutions or QuickBooks inventory software will:

  • Save you time – No longer will you have to transfer numbers by hand from your inventory program back to your profit/loss program.
  • Save you money – No longer will you have to pay for the use of multiple software programs.

If you’re not using any inventory program yet, starting with Enterprise QuickBooks inventory software will:

  • Save you time and headache – You won’t ever have to struggle with juggling multiple accounting programs if you simply start off with a streamlined process.
  • Help you maximize your profits with minimal time commitment – Through the integrated program, QuickBooks will keep track of your inventory to maximize your profits and minimize your loss without more of a time commitment from you other than initial data entry.

Whether you’re already using inventory software or you’ve never heard of it, QuickBooks (or Enterprise) will free your time so that you can focus your energy on growing your business. And you can rest assured that your accounting is in good hands. In all my years of setting up accounting systems, QuickBooks continues to amaze me with its ‘abilities’:  capability, scalability, and flexibility.

Would I Have To Conform My Business to QuickBooks?

No. In fact, you get to structure QuickBooks so that it conforms to your business. The program is highly customizable, allowing for maximum flexibility. With QuickBooks inventory software, you can tailor your inventory item list to meet the unique needs of your business.  For example, you can:

  • Create a ‘hierarchy’ of inventory items using titles and subtitles
  • See detailed reports and subtotals based upon the structure that you establish
  • Create ‘groups’ of inventory items (ideal for selling packages or kits)
  • Establish assemblies and sub-assemblies (BOM’s or Bills of Material)
  • Add labor costs to an inventory ‘group’ or assembly
  • Integrate 3rd-party bar-code systems
  • Build custom fields to track a variety of additional information (e.g., color, bin, model, etc.)

Customer Praise For Diane Gilson, Info Plus Accounting, and BuildYourNumbers.com

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ From the Intuit FindAProAdvisor website:
“We have used Diane for years whenever we have had trouble with our QuickBooks, or whenever I needed training in QuickBooks. Diane knows this software probably better then the back of her hand! In fact we started calling her our QuickBooks Guru! The other day I ran into a problem in QuickBooks where my guys labor wasn’t showing up in the job reports, I tried everything to figure it out. I spent almost 4 hours on the phone with QuickBooks Payroll. I was so frustrated I scheduled an appointment with Diane. Diane was able to help me figure out what was going on in 12 minutes!!! I highly recommend Info Plus Accounting!”

    I’m Skye and I work as public accountant in Fittleton. Whenever I am not working I am blogging. Wonderful article on a subject I’m very well-versed in.

    Yea, you aren’t kidding. I had a client that was keeping track of inventory in excel. She didnt realize what the inventory module of QuickBooks can do. She was impressed how organized it was and how it could keep track of labor applied to the inventory. I recommend your followers look into your training if they need it.
