Intuit has integrated an advanced inventory management system directly into QuickBooks Enterprise, all with the same user interface. There is no need for a separate inventory management system, software, or data integration.
You just scan inventory and serial numbers with a scanner and QuickBooks takes over, putting your data in the correct fields automatically. And if your inventory items don’t have barcodes, QuickBooks can create them for you.
Included with QuickBooks Enterprise Platinum
Track specific inventory items down to the bin location level within one or more warehouses. When filling out forms, automatically see quantities and serial or lot numbers for each bin. Sort pick lists and item receipts by location for efficient picking and stocking.
Increase efficiency and reliability for all inventory data entry by scanning items and serial numbers without touching a keyboard. QuickBooks will automatically put the information into the right field. Print barcode labels from inside QuickBooks, and if you don’t have barcodes, QuickBooks will create them for you. Integrates with any simple USB barcode scanner.
Add flexibility and insight to your business with newly customizable inventory reports: FIFO (first-in, first-out), Inventory Valuation Summary, Inventory Stock by Item, and Assembly Shortage by Item. Plus, additional fields allow you to better track your inventory.
Enter serial numbers and lots at the time of purchase, transfer, or sale for more reliable tracking. You can track defective lots through assemblies and sub-assemblies, in stock on shelves, and customer purchases with new reports.
For each location, you can see how many items are on hand, on sales order, on purchase order, and your reorder point and QuickBooks will automatically calculate which items you need to restock. In addition to tracking inventory in multiple warehouses, using advanced inventory can track it in different staging areas within a single warehouse, on service trucks, and on consignment. You can even track imported goods ‘on the water.’
If one location is running low on inventory, you can transfer stock from another location to meet demand without delay.
