QuickBooks Tip


QuickMath, the QuickBooks Calculator

Every accountant / bookkeeper needs a calculator, and QuickBooks gives you one so you don't need to have a physical with you or even have another app open. It's available in any amount field: Press "=" and the mini tape will appear. Once you calculate your number you can hit tab to move to the next field... it's as easy as that. You can also click "C" once to clear the entry or twice to clear the tape.

Your Inventory Adventure does not have to be a Dream...


Choosing an inventory / order management software for your business can be difficult. Imagine erasing costly work hours from your busy day. That does not need to be a dream but a reality.  There are benefits to inventory tracking software.


For instance, QuickBooks Enterprise with Advanced Inventory can address many entities' needs -- from tracking multiple inventory sites and bin-locations to serial or lot number tracking and even simple bar code scanning. There are also 3rd-party add-ons that address more complex needs, such as ACCTivate!, Fishbowl Inventory, AllOrders by NumberCruncher, and InventoryControl by WaspBarcode. More complex needs can include EDI integration, larger item or customer lists, bigger transaction volume, mobile bar code scanning, and more.


Here is a bold statement: no matter how much the inventory solution costs, it will pay for itself in a matter of months or lessThat is our clients' experience. 


The best way to choose the appropriate solution -- or whether an add-on is necessary -- is to follow these guidelines: (1) analyze current and desired workflows to fully understand the business requirements; this study results in recommended courses of action, including technical software/hardware and/or changes to the accounting system workflow process.  Next step is to (2) evaluate alternative solutions, including QuickBooks Financial (QuickBooks Enterprise + Advanced Inventory) and two or more 3rd-party add-ons. And lastly, (3) choose and implement a solution based on budget and functional requirements.


One of our areas of expertise -- growing every month -- is this of supply chain / inventory / warehousing management. We are taking this expertise and putting it in the form of a formal course. See below for class schedules. An excellent starting point to your inventory adventure is to attend tomorrow's class, either in person or via web-conference.


So, let's explore inventory management adventure together!

Recycle your E-waste


Remember April 22nd is Earth Day. A simple step you can take to help preserve the environment is to make sure your used computers and other electronics equipment do not end up in landfills. Computers and other electronics often contain batteries and other components that can be very toxic to the environment.

Please do the planet a favor and seek out local facilities for e-waste recycling when disposing of computers and phones. These services are available for free and are often provided by your local waste collector as well as computer and electronics retailers. In fact, some companies will even pay you to recycle your used mobile phone.
