    Small shop looking for inventory help

    I work in a small shop that has inventory located with-in the building. We also do field service and carry inventory on our trucks. We have had several disussions on how to keep track of inventory in "multiple warehouses". The service techs may also take extra parts with them that may or may not be used on the job and will need to be checked back in later on. The shop is currently using Quickbooks software. We are looking for ideas on how to be able to track inventory in QB and how service techs can check parts in and out - and track what they have on their trucks. Any help would be appreciated.

    Have you checked out intuit's online forum? they have a large community there to help you out with your challenges in QB. According to what I know, QB is not a very good software to use for inventory management.

    If your business does not have a high volume you might be able to handle it with a good excel SOP in place. Or else you might need an inv mgt software like Tradegecko. they offer free trials on their website so you could give it a try. PM me if you would like a more customised trial.

    Zenventory for small and medium-sized businesses

    You should take a look at Zenventory. It's all web-based and you get 30 days free when you start! It integrates with QuickBooks as well as online marketplaces and shipping like UPS, USPS, and more. Zenventory is super affordable too as it's designed for small and medium-sized businesses.
    There's also a helpful blog that gives more insight into inventory management and how the software works.

    Good luck!

    There are a lot of Inventory Management software for small and medium businesses. Here are two best inventory management software: inFlow Inventory (http://www.inflowinventory.com/) offers standardized identification following and inventory tracking from numerous areas. Business can set up crude materials following so that quantities of entire things can be monitored by means of the individual parts required for gathering. Openbravo (http://www.openbravo.com/) is a capable stock tool that keeps your item streaming and binds in specifically to each part of your ERP solution. Not just would you be able to deal with your merchants, you can track where the stock moves and a great deal more. I found one article. Here list of free inventory management software. http://listoffreeware.com/list-of-be...ment-software/ If you want to confusion to select right software for your business.You should go with SoftwareSuggest. You will find right software for your business.

    A good option for you would be Primaseller. This software platform is specially designed for small and medium retail businesses.

    They help you integrate your multiple stores and/or warehouses and operate them all from a single place. This means that you won't have to use multiple logins for each warehouse. Inventory at all your warehouses can be seen from a single panel.

    There are restrictions while using Quickbooks as an inventory management software. It does not provide you advanced inventory management features. The interesting aspect about Primaseller is that it provides you great features for inventory management along with integration with Quickbooks for accounting purposes. This means that whenever you generate an invoice (which can also be done with Primaseller), your inventory and financial details go automatically to Quickbooks. So, you will obtain real-time and accurate accounts at all times.

    You can sign up for their 14 day free trial and understand their features.

    We keep our inventory in a storage warehouse and use Telecom Inventory. It's still pretty new for us but so far so good.
