Aralco Inventory Management

Aralco Inventory Management is well suited for a retail operation with one or two locations that is expanding to 5+. At that point, there is small enough start-up costs and significant benefits available for this software to assist a company with the inventory and POS challenges associated with rapid growth. Aralco Inventory Management is also particularly helpful for retail companies that have complicated sales orders or a sales fulfillment time that is longer than a day or a week.

QuickBooks Online

In the past we have used QuickBooks Online to schedule vendor payment and tracking between various properties. This was helpful to us because it not only ensured that many payments to many vendors across many dates were shipped in time, but the built-in reporting and tax prep features made filing so much easier when it came to be tax time.

Pros

Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo

  • They have a great mobile app that is very functional as well.

Cons

  • Lengthy set-up process that requires strong management
  • High base hardware requirements (can't be used with just a phone, for instance)
  • Inventory forecasting is not linked to any external or macro forces
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo
  • The lack of forms customization is really terrible. It isn't malleable enough for the needs of different types of business.
  • The program runs WAY TOO SLOW! Every click takes too long to connect with the server.
  • It often has too many clicks to get to areas I use often. It needs to be more intuitive with fewer clicks to get to everything.

It’s a good tool, but the price increases are too great and customer service is lacking.

The product performs in the areas of basic bookkeeping and accounting, but to fully use the product for a small business with a few "quirks" additional upgrades will be needed (from QBO Basic to QBO Plus), payroll, and add-ons will be to have all the bells and whistles needed to perform some basic functions offered in other products

There are tab issues. When I tab the field doesn't highlight and I have to backspace or delete what is in the field. Happens on the memo field and sometimes other fields. Very time consuming.

I'm frustrated. Wound up with two companies, have to keep switching back and forth. This is unsatisfactory!

Comparing QuickBooks with SAP ERP, it's more preferred for small and medium size business whereas SAP ERP is more for complex and large organizations. SAP ERP is very complicated to set up and expensive as far as I know. It requires a professional accountant to maintain and occupies a large space in the server.

  • Good customer support which boosts employee morale which leads to efficiencies and higher sales which increased ROI
Jeff Looby, CPA profile photo
  • Able to get returns completed sooner since data is much more available. This allows me to spread my work out a bit more, especially during busy times like tax season.
  • Being able to be more collaborative with our clients allows us to be more proactive with servicing them.
