And with that, to maintain the accounting of the sales and purchase of the products. A valuable inventory control system helps to arrange the call for action and also brings about the choice level of inventory. With all these objectives they thought of an Inventory management system that can help to support in keeping track of the account records. So they started using QuickBooks for accounting management.

Business Challenges

Recently, the company noticed that it was outgrowing QuickBooks as an inventory management solution. The Company Manager started looking to find a solution related to this problem and QuickBooks as a standalone was not an option. Other issues were identified, such as Inventory tracking, product analysis, sales and purchase order tracking, Barcode system, Digital signature capturing, filter product and images, payment mode, and tax Id that had to be satisfied. Additionally, the Auto Care Products Manager has decided to bring a robust software package to address all these concerns.

Another challenge identified was the ease of use. The Company explained, “QuickBooks is a terrific package for our general accounting requirements. We want to teach our employees our market, customer expectations, and how to sell. We don’t want to have to use resources and lots of time in training how to use our accounting and inventory software. They use to took a piece of paper around and wrote down everything, all the SKUs. That was managed, probably for way too long. They also ran into trouble with inventory organization. They said “Before Goods Order Inventory, we didn’t have a way to sync our inventory to our storefronts,” Manager said. We would usually adjust inventory levels manually and errors did happen every once in a while. Finally, perhaps the biggest challenge was cost. As they were familiar with many of the accounting and inventory management software systems used in the industry. They were costly, often costing a minimum of $15,000 before you got what you wanted. At this point in the company’s history, that sort of expenditure was impractical.

Innovative Solution by Goods Order Inventory (GOIS)

The Automotive care products company identified the “Goods Order Inventory” as a potential solution. The fact that it would integrate with QuickBooks was a strong advantage. In investigating the software, they were very impressed by the Goods Order Inventory reps with their proactive responsiveness. In the first call to Goods Order Inventory, the rep led the company through the Online presentation where they could see how the user interface worked. When they saw how easy it was to use, and how cost-effective the product would be, the decision-making process was considerably shortened.

Once the product was in hand and installed, they began the process of moving its inventory information from QuickBooks to Goods Order Inventory. Detailed pre-planning had determined how they wanted inventory records coded.

Tracking Sales and Purchase Order

The next step was customizing reports so that the company could predict sales turnover and improve the reordering process. With Goods Order Inventory reorder reports and auto-PO features, orders can be placed with the click of a mouse.

Some of the specific detail purchase order like

  • List of item buyer agrees to purchase
