Can I Use QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise for My Manufacturing Business?

If you’re running a manufacturing business and you’re looking for a powerful solution to manage your inventory and keep sales fulfillment on track, then QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise might be the right tool for you.

Here are some reasons why you should consider purchasing QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise for your manufacturing company. 

Advanced Inventory Management Module

If you have complex inventory management requirements, we recommend QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise Platinum or Diamond. When you sign up for Platinum or Diamond, you’ll unlock enhanced inventory management features, such as the ability to track inventory in multiple locations, monitor items down to the bin location level and track quantities and serial or lot numbers for each bin, scan items and serial numbers without relying on manual data entry, and easily transfer inventory from one location to another.

Bill of materials (BOM) Management

In manufacturing, the bill of materials (BOM) cost is the total cost of all the raw materials that make a product. This cost can fluctuate depending on the market price of the raw materials, which is why it’s crucial to have a system that can track these changes accurately. QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise does just that by providing real-time updates on the prices of all the raw materials in your BOM. This way, you can be confident that you’re always getting the most accurate cost information for your products.

Simplified Order tracking and sales fulfillment

In manufacturing, the sales process doesn’t end when an order is placed. So you also need to track the progress of each order and make sure it’s fulfilled on time.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise makes order tracking easy with its manufacturing-specific built-in workflows and notifications. So whether you need to monitor open sales orders, work in progress, or completed job statuses, you can do it all from one central location. This way, you can ensure that every order is fulfilled quickly and efficiently.

Advanced Reporting

To make informed decisions about your business, you need access to accurate and timely reports. QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise provides advanced reports specifically tailored for manufacturing businesses, such as:

  • Inventory Stock Status by Item Report
  • Inventory Valuation Summary Report
  • Assembly Shortage by Item Report

These reports can be customized to include the information you need to make informed decisions about your business. Discover more about advanced reporting in QuickBooks Enterprise and how it benefits your business

Improved Backorder Tracking

It’s not uncommon to have products that are back ordered due to high demand. Backorders can lead to lost sales and dissatisfied customers when not correctly tracked.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise helps you avoid these problems by providing detailed back order tracking. You can easily see which products are on backorder when they’re expected to ship, and even cancel or reschedule orders if needed. This can improve your customer service since you’ll be able to communicate accurate information about product availability.

eCommerce Integration

Most manufacturing companies heavily depend on their eCommerce sales. However, it can be difficult to manage online orders and track inventory levels without a well-rounded accounting solution.

QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise allows eCommerce sites such as Shopify and Amazon to be seamlessly integrated with your accounting software. This way, you can automatically update inventory levels and keep track of sales from one central location.

24/7 Support

When you’re running a manufacturing business, you can’t afford to have your accounting software go down. That’s why QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise comes with 24/7 support from expert technicians. No matter what time of day or night it is, you can always get the help you need to keep your business running smoothly.
