PR Log - Nov 15, 2012 - Phoenix-based technology start-up Portable Workforce has integrated its inventory management platform with Intuit QuickBooks Online. This allows small and medium businesses to synchronize customer, vendor, inventory and order data between Ducotrax and QuickBooks.
Ducotrax Inventory Management is a “Software as a Service” platform that stores inventory and warehouse data in the cloud, allowing companies that use the system to manage their inventory from anywhere with an internet connection.
With the economy on a slow and steady rebound, and with domestic manufacturing projected to rise, small-to-medium-sized enterprises will increasingly need a cost-effective, real-time inventory tracking platform.
Ducotrax was designed to fill a void identified for a cost-effective inventory management system that helps small businesses streamline their supply chain and improve their procurement practices. It’s a solution that is now further improved by the software’s recent ability to integrate seamlessly with QuickBooks.
As technology continues to progress, small businesses are forced to compete in an ever-expanding global marketplace. And sometimes, small-to-medium-sized businesses lack the know-how or capitol required for a traditional software implementation that can manage inventory, warehousing, and manufacturing - software that is essential to make a small business competitive by reducing the costs associated with manual processes.
Over 4 million companies rely on QuickBooks for their financial management, but Ducotrax helps them manage their warehouse processes like never before.
“Our software helps reduce costs for our users by reducing inaccuracies inherent with keeping track of inventory on a spreadsheet or with a clipboard,” said Charles Keatley, CEO of Portable Workforce.
“Since many of the companies we aim to help already use QuickBooks for their accounting, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to upgrade Ducotrax and add more value for our customers.”
While the need to manage inventory in real-time is a goal for many, it’s not always an easy transition to make for small businesses. Some companies have no issue justifying the investment, while others are reluctant to allocate the resources needed to make an inventory management system work.
“Our solution is simple: Ducotrax helps companies match their inventory counts to their market’s demand,” Keatley said. “Our software reduces the costs of inventory obsolescence, damage, and theft, while helping procurement to reduce incoming and outgoing freight costs. Integrating QuickBooks was a logical decision, one that helps our customers track their inventory financing costs, while also allowing them to reconcile customer fulfillment with finished goods availability.”
The combination of Ducotrax with QuickBooks is another example of Portable Workforce’s commitment to improving its product and service offering. It’s a commitment built on improving the user’s experience, and one that has positioned the company as a valued and trusted partner.
“Our customers know our solutions work, and they appreciate our continued effort to improve our product and service offering,” Keatley said. “We are always investigating new and innovative ways to help customers reduce costs and this recent integration with QuickBooks is a great example of these continuous efforts.”
