Accounting Practices for Distributors - More Profit, Less Labor

Speaker: Harriett Gatter


Take a tour of QuickBooks Premier to see the pros and cons of its Order Management and Accounting capabilities for our unique and complex industry. Learn how to best use this software which is the #1 Accounting software for small to medium sized businesses. Don’t overlook an unpaid invoice or double pay a supplier ever again.


Learning Objectives:

  • See the entry and creation of a promotional product order in QB Premier.
  • See why QB can be advantageous to you as a distributor and perhaps even make your business more valuable.
  • Learn some specific questions to ask a potential bookkeeper to get the best fit possible. Understand why making a decision based on a bookkeeper just telling you that they “know QuickBooks” can be a recipe for disaster.
