Is there a feature available in QuickBooks that will help a manufacturing company manage inventory, manage projects properly and have an ERP system kind of feel?
As a small fabricating company we want to be able to manage and market to our customers (we will use Method CRM for that) raw materials, monitor work in process, track job progress, be sure materials are ordered and ready in advanced , all in a professional way. Is there a version of QB that works for all that? Or can we get close?
Thank you for reaching out to us here on the Community page. I can share with you some information about the features available in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
Yes, managing your projects and tracking inventories is available in QBO Plus and Advanced. The project feature helps you stay organize and makes it easy to manage your work and its progress. While the inventory tracking in QBO gives you everything you need to manage your products/services.
I'm adding these articles for additional details about these features:
If you need a unique way of tracking your inventories and organizing business data, you can always integrate an app/s with QBO. You can search for one from the Apps tab, or through this link: QuickBooks App.
Once done, you can also open the topics from our help articles as your references while working with QuickBooks in the future.
Please feel free to post again if you have any other questions. I'm always here to help. Have a good day!
