Inventory Detail Journal by Account

This report can be used for reconciling any of the GL accounts Acctivate works with but it was designed to specifically reconcile the Accrued Purchase Receipts account in QuickBooks.  This can often be a very challenging task and we hope this report will help in your efforts. This report shows both the ins and outs into an account where the standard Acctivate Inventory Detail Journal Report does not.  Knowing both what came into an account and what went out is critical in your reconciling process and this report helps you do just that.

If you are having a difficult time reconciling your Accrued Purchase Receipts account? Contact us to purchase this report and make things a little easier during that reconciliation process.




ACCTivate! Custom Reporting

UPDATE:  See some of our Acctivate reports on our Acctivate Custom Reporting Page!

We have been supporting ACCTivate! for some time now and we have been doing quite a bit of custom reporting work for users all over the country. ACCTivate! comes with quite a few canned reports but of course they don’t have it all. Different businesses have different needs and even in the same industry people want to see their data differently.

We have created custom sales reports,  product re-order reports, special order fulfillment reports, a wide range of inventory reports and more. We have even had opportunities to create custom applications that interact with the ACCTivate! database. We plan on adding “How We Helped” posts here on our blog when we complete projects that others may benefit from. These posts will include a brief overview of the “problem” and our solution.

We will also be adding “How We Helped” posts for QuickBooks® related projects that you may find since QuickBooks® is one of the products that takes care of all of the accounting for ACCTivate!


Fishbowl Inventory – A Mini Review

Fishbowl Inventory is a great product that extends the abilities of Intuit’s QuickBooks® software, or it can be used as a standalone inventory management application. While inventory management has been their strong point since the beginning they have been a bit lacking on the manufacturing side of the house. Well, all that is about to change with the release of Fishbowl Inventory 2010 (it has a planned release date of Oct. 29).

We have been using the new version since the first beta release (they are now on release 4) and have been quite pleased. With this new release they have added a separate Manufacturing section that handles both Manufacturing Orders (MO) and a Bill of Material module. So far the only thing we have found not working to our liking is the process that it takes to close an MO short. However, this is something that is being corrected in the next beta release.

In addition to these great improvements the folks at Fishbowl have re-written the picking module and improved the overall user experience. There isn’t much more we could ask for (but give us a week or two, I’m sure we’ll come up with something). If you are a QuickBooks® user and do a fare share of inventory management and/or manufacturing then Fishbowl Inventory 2010 is a must!

At this time the beta is only available to existing users. However you can request a demo or download a FREE trial of Fishbowl Inventory 2009 today…
