Intuit is starting the year 2021 with a big boost to the QuickBooks Enterprise 21.0 Manufacturing Edition.
The version 21.0 comes with more flexibility and functions to help both small and medium scale enterprises in their daily running of the manufacturing business. In light of anticipation, we discuss below the top 10 features to expect in this latest version.
1. Data level permission
Users can now control and specify what level of data other users can access. As an admin, you can delegate different permission levels to different users to edit or delete certain data. Once authorized users sign in, they know what level of data they can access and whether they can edit and delete data or not.
2. Improved bank feeds
You can now categorize bank transactions in categories, so it is easier to work with deposits and withdrawals. You can also use the enhanced tools to effect batch editing and resolve account discrepancies faster than before.
3. Receipt management
Simply capture receipts by scanning or photographing with your mobile device. Import the receipts and start working on them. You can also categorize receipts to make it easier to locate specific receipts when the need arises.
4. Send statements automatically
Stop the routine of drafting a new statement every month to remind customers of opening balances. Use the new automation tools to send statements as often as you choose. There's no need to customize statements each time you want to send them out.
5. Improved inventory management
The new version's inventory management tools have been designed to take care of more Manufacturing business-specific needs. You can easily track and transfer inventory across multiple locations (whether in the bin, on the pallet, or in the store). With barcode labeling, your employees will be better able to locate specific items in the warehouse. Managing inventory with the new QuickBooksEnterprise21.0 is so efficient and less hectic.
6. Sales order fulfillment management
Get notified when a new sales order comes from clients. Track progress on inventory, logistics, and delivery of products to your customers. In the new version, order tracking is much easier. You can know exactly how the logistics company is moving your products and a rough estimate of how long it will take to reach your customers. More to this, you can confirm if defective products were in a good state before leaving the warehouse or not. Hence, this helps in resolving issues regarding returns and refunds.
7. Create customer groups
Create customer groups based on type, location, and status. It is easier to manage customers' information and to keep track of changes in customer details. You can choose specific customer groups when sending statements or invoices.
8. Barcode label prices
Make price labeling easier by automating the process. With barcode label prices, it is easier for employees to locate and manage inventory in-store and on shelves. The barcode label gives information about product type, item name, a brief description, and its current price. In case there are changes in the prices of products, it is easier to update the price changes using the barcode label.
9. QuickBooks tool hub
The QuickBooks tool hub is the section that guides users to troubleshoot whatever challenges they may face when using the software. The guides cover vital issues such as installation problems, program issues, password reset, network challenges, and many more. In case users are unable to resolve the issues themselves, the support center contact center is available to the support team can assist with troubleshooting.
10. Improved app integration
It is now easier to connect your third-party apps to your QuickBooks account. Use the improved web connector to reduce setup time, increase functionality and performance. Organize your third party apps neatly in the app Integration center and access them with ease. Import reports and data from third-party apps to your QuickBooks account without stress. Version 21.0 also allows users to integrate more third-party apps than the previous version.
The QuickBooks Enterprise 21.0 Manufacturing Edition took into account many of the concerns users of the previous versions raised. Now that the newly improved version has been released, it is time to upgrade for manufacturing businesses to upgrade to the new version. There's so much more to gain in terms of ease and efficiency when you upgrade to the new QuickBooks Enterprise 21.0 Manufacturing Edition.
