I`m thinking of buying QuickBooks Pro to manage my company`s accounting/invoicing/inventory, etc. I`m not a computer software person at all! In fact, I don`t even know what questions to ask. I need to know how it all comes together, from when the order comes in, to when it`s shipped, to invoicing, to inventory management. I`ve been through so many of the threads to try & piece it all together, but I`m still coming up short. So please bear with me as I describe me needs, in very simplistic terms!
I`m manufacturing a game that`s going to be sold online and in stores. Small specialty toy stores to start with ... hopefully larger retailers later. The games will be shipped from my manufacturere in China to a warehousing/fulfillment company that I`m working with.
So as I have orders coming in from my website, and orders coming in from retailers, does QuickBooks Pro pull it all together for me? Are retailers usually hooked up with a system that will automatically send purchase orders to me through e-mail? Should the orders come to me first & then I forward them on to my fulfillment center? What other things should I be concerned about as I consider software programs like QuickBooks Pro?
Please help! I`ve got to get smart fast (& I`ve got a long way to go!)
Thanks so much!
