I`m new here, and after searching the forum, I`m not sure of the proper `keywords` to find what I need....
I run a computer repair business out of my home (full time). I have multiple vendors/distributors which carry similar items. I get a data feed from my main suppliers, like CSV file, or XML file.
I am looking for some software that can help me organize the chaos. I have one stock code for myself, but I could order from two or three different vendors. It is very time consuming to lookup on each vendors website, research, etc, just to place an order.
Does someone have a suggestion on software that can import the data, and allow me to search it so I can see things simply? Like, "I need more style x widgets - Vendor A has them $50 / pc, Vendor B has them at $44 / pc." Then daily or weekly, I can update the prices via the data files?
Being a home business, cost is a concern....I`m a big fan of open source if anyone knows of anything....
