What about a pharmacy?teddy boom wrote: ↑Nov 22nd, 2017 3:33 pmQuickBooks Pro does inventory management, but for my business it doesn't really help. Since I'm sole prop, and my inventory is pretty chaotic (many times I'll only ever get 1 piece of a thing I sell), managing inventory on a spreadsheet was better. I could just put a line for every purchase during the year, mark the line as sold, in inventory, or thrown away.. Now with Quick Books I have a bunch of non-inventory items to catch the one offs, but I can't easily track the value.
Of course I also have regular items, and the inventory tracking for those items is pretty useful. Quick Books does a great job there. Tells you to order more if you want it to, keeps track of the average price. I'm not sure if Pro allows multiple pricing tiers (like this is a bulk customer, so they get a discount, vs. one off customers paying full retail), but I think it might.
The fact QB keeps track of outstanding invoices is good too of course. I have a couple right now that I might forget if I didn't have it automated..
For really small business, and really unique business structures, it isn't so great..
