Tracking inventory in QuickBooks is a great way for businesses to save time and money while also optimizing performance and increasing customer satisfaction.
Many small and mid-sized businesses already use QuickBooks for accounting and other financial reasons. If you’re one of them, adding on inventory tracking is a simple process.
Like other cloud software, QuickBooks allows users to access information anywhere and backs up their work securely. This means everyone can view the most recent data no matter where they are or when they need those numbers.
Using QuickBooks to Track Inventory
Small business owners looking to make QuickBooks part of their inventory tracking solution have two options.
1. Use QuickBooks Inventory Tracking
Perfect for single channel retail businesses
With QuickBooks Online, small business owners can enter:
Item value - The price of adding that item to your inventory
Item sale - The price the item was sold for
As items are added or removed from inventory, QuickBooks automatically increases or decreases both the number of items available and the value of inventory managed.
If your small business has grown to scale – or is in the process – the second option may be better for you.
2. Use TradeGecko’s QuickBooks Integration
