QuickBooks Enterprise for Manufacturing & Wholesale has all the tools you need to keep your inventory management and sales fulfillment on track.
Make your manufacturing business more efficient than ever
Keep costs down and profits up
Track costs from raw materials to finished goods, including labor and shipping with landed cost and bill of materials. When component costs change, your total product cost updates automatically.
Find more efficiencies in your builds
Streamline your manufacturing processes with automated builds and purchase orders for all subassemblies and components required for a final assembly. Create production forecasts and plan labor allocation accordingly.
Automate more inventory processes
Use mobile barcode scanning* for picking, receiving, and cycle count* inventory updates. Track inventory down to the bin* or pallet across warehouses and trucks. Track by lot, serial numbers, and RMAs to easily manage warranties, returns, and recalls.

Optimize your manufacturing processes
See how many finished goods you can build with on-hand materials and subassemblies. Automatically create build or purchase orders when inventory drops below preset points. Build all subassemblies automatically with a final build order, instead of entering them individually. Easily replace components across multiple assemblies.
Improve order management with available-to-promise functionality
Respond to customer order inquiries based on available inventory and give customers a promised fulfillment date for inventory items that are currently out of stock. With available-to-promise information displayed on one screen, you can more easily manage large orders, incomplete shipments, and orders that are difficult to fulfill or buy parts for. Easily see how many items are on hand, committed, on a pending build, and on order.
Centralized source of vendor information
The Alternate Vendors Center* increases visibility into vendor contact, item, and pricing information so it’s available when you need it. It saves you time by quickly importing vendor list prices, reducing the need to track down critical vendor information, and allowing you to create purchase orders with vendor information automatically included. And now, new alternate vendor reports further enhance your visibility by listing vendors in key inventory reports.
Bill of materials cost tracking
Track bill of materials costs for each product, including the cost of each subassembly, as well as labor and overhead. Allow QuickBooks to automatically update your assembly costs and item prices when component costs change, instead of making manual updates. And track costs your way with either FIFO or average cost accounting.
Factor in charges and fees with landed cost
Landed cost* helps you identify the true cost of your products by factoring in freight, duties, taxes, tariffs, currency conversion, and insurance. With Enterprise, you can automate all these factors into your accounting to get the total cost of a product or shipment so you can maintain the margins you need to stay profitable. Now you can also set up landed cost accounts as “COGS” or “Other current assets.” Plus, you can accurately calculate landed cost for old item bills from closed accounting periods.
Automate your pricing strategy with Advanced Pricing*
Customizable and automated pricing rules help protect your margins, save you time, and reduce errors. Set up promotions with start and stop dates. Set quantity discounts for bulk orders. There’s no need for manual updates. Just set the price rules and the calculations run automatically. Maintain flexibility to implement exceptions as needed.
Customize user permissions
With customizable user permissions by role, you can delegate with confidence. Your warehouse team can manage pending builds, fulfill orders, and run cycle counts without seeing sensitive information like invoices and payroll. And now you can protect confidentiality even further by granting users access only to the specific employees, vendors, and data they need to do their jobs.
Schedule and pay bills faster with QuickBooks
Use the funding source you choose and a digital or physical form your vendors prefer.* QuickBooks then automatically marks the bill paid and notifies you once the money is sent. Gain financial flexibility by paying vendors from a card or bank transfer, then having the money sent via physical check or bank transfer. Keep your vendors happy by customizing their payment method preferences for future payments.
Manufacturing-specific inventory management
Mobile barcode scanning
Mobile barcode scanning* helps you automate more of your manufacturing business. It speeds up the picking process, reduces data entry errors, and lets you send sales orders to workers on the floor or in another warehouse. You’ll be able to fulfill orders with ease and get real-time inventory updates right in QuickBooks.
Lot and serial number tracking
Assign serial numbers to individual items to check warranty coverage, match specific customers to purchased products, and more. Lot number tracking allows you to track products manufactured together in the same batch. If a recall is ever needed, you can recall items from the specific lot rather than all items.
Cycle count lets you count inventory in real time without having to shut down your warehouse. Use mobile barcode scanners,* or scan and upload inventory counts from different warehouses to a central inventory dashboard. Find and adjust discrepancies, and import or export inventory counts when you need them.
Bill and PO workflow approvals
Save time with customizable business templates for repeatable purchase order and bill workflow approvals. Delegate with confidence while keeping oversight. One dashboard lets you manage cash flow, boost transparency, and help protect against fraud with a digital audit trail for each transaction. And employees get timely reminders so they don't miss an approval deadline.
Inventory categorization and expiration dates*
Establish up to four levels of categorization on inventory and save time by using categories to search and report on items. Keep your inventory up to date, sell more quickly, and reduce business losses by assigning expiration dates, which can also be included on sales orders, invoices, and other customer communications.
Order tracking and sales fulfillment
Sales order fulfillment
With one central dashboard, you can manage your pick-pack-and-ship workflow from sale to delivery.* Send items for picking, packing, or both with just one click. View and sort open sales orders, prioritize order fulfillment, ship partial orders, and track backorders. Batch print pick lists, packing slips, and shipping labels right in QuickBooks. Schedule pickups and track shipments. Get paid faster and reduce billing complexity by managing your sales order process from a single location.
Salesforce CRM connector*
The Salesforce CRM connector syncs to QuickBooks to help reduce duplicate data entry. Set up your sales and support teams for success by putting customer information like order status and payment history at their fingertips. And generate invoices automatically so you get paid faster.
*Add-on monthly subscription required.
Customize receipts and payment stubs
Customize payment receipts, including logos, for a professional and consistent look across all your customer communications. Email customizable bill payment stubs to one or more vendors at once. Easily edit your logo, formatting, balance-paid-to date, and other billing information.
Track inventory expiration dates*
Keep your inventory up to date. Assign and monitor expiration dates so that you can sell inventory before products expire to reduce losses. Help reduce business liability by conveying expiration dates in transactions and customer communications. Take timely actions with reports on expired or about-to-expire inventory by lot or serial number.
Simplify e-commerce management, avoid stockouts, and gain a clearer picture of your profitability by integrating QuickBooks with top online stores and marketplaces. Inventory counts update with every sale, regardless of how many channels you sell in. Easily add product listings across channels, and work with your preferred shipping provider right in QuickBooks.
*Apps sold separately, additional fees may apply
Flexible reporting, designed for manufacturing
Powerful, customizable reporting*
See your overall profitability or profitability by item at a glance, and forecast future demand. You’ll know what products customers love, which suppliers underperform, and what your current inventory is worth. Discount slow-moving products to free up shelf space. Get visibility into what’s on-hand, committed, in assembly, or on order so your sales reps can sell with confidence.
Inventory valuation summary report
Understand what your inventory is worth with this customizable report. View how much inventory you have on hand, what it costs, and what the sales price is. That way you can understand both an asset’s value on your books and how much you can sell it for. This report also lets you view and track how inventory is organized with up to four levels of categorization for granularity and control.
