QuickBooks Manufacturing

QuickBooks Manufacturing & Wholesale is an industry-specific version of QuickBooks Online offering some features manufacturers need to track financials tied to their inventory. While the inclusion of this version hints at industry specific developments, the number of additional features available in this version are surprisingly limited. QuickBooks for manufacturing can do the basics such as creating bills of lading, work orders and tracking items at multiple locations but only supports average cost calculations and does not offer either traceability or lot / serial number tracking.

Most manufacturers need much more!

​SOS Inventory was designed to address the shortcomings in QuickBooks Online, delivering inventory tracking and accounting capabilities appropriate for a manufacturing company.

So, how does SOS Inventory harness the potential of QuickBooks Online?

QuickBooks in isolation can create kits, support custom fields and deliver basic inventory management.

SOS does much, much more, to provide manufacturing inventory management:
