View Full Version : What's the Best Inventory Software
01-03-2003, 09:05 PM
I am currently using QBpro2001 and our company sells antique furniture and reproduction furniture along with accessories. Most of the time, the items we receive will be different on each shipment we receive at least 4 times per year. This makes inventory bigger and bigger. Is QB2002 better? Any other software available for Antique business that anyone may know of.

Would you consider software in the range of 4000 to 6000 dollar range?

No, we really want to stay with low end since company has only been in business 2 yrs. Once past 5 yr mark then may look into it.

Not many replies - could indicate a dearth of products. I do not know the products available, but you need inventory which has batch or serial number tracking, on purchases inventory and sales, ie from the front to the back of your business.
This allows you to know not only that you have 5 Regency chairs in stock (lucky you!), but what each one cost. When you sell it, the program will ask you to say which one is being sold.
When you buy them, you'll have to set up reference numbers for each one. The program will track costs for the same item separately.
These inventory programs are more complicated than the ordinary average cost programs like QuickBooks, so you'll need to raise your budget sights a little. Hopefully someone can point you in the direction of suitable programs.
I have seen shareware programs aimed at antique dealers, and you could try Google with that search.
Sidney, please advise which products are out there in that price range.

Thanks for the advice, we are hiring a new CPA and I think he may have some ideas once he sees what we are doing, so I am waiting. I will search the internet and see what I find.
