WILD WEDNESDAY WEBINAR: What Order Management & Accounting Software is Best Suited for Distributors Today?

Wednesday, February 26, 2020  | 11:30 am -12:30 pm (central)

 

Is there a perfect solution for our industry?  What options exist? What should we be paying? Which might be best for the long haul?  What functions do these solutions automate? How important is it to use an automated solution?  What are the risks in doing so?

 

These back-office questions are the less-exciting aspects of being a distributor but are critically important to freeing a distributor up to do what they do best: SELL.  So, let’s examine some options and how to make an informed decision to figure out what is best for you and your business—so you can get this back-office labor done quickly, correctly, and affordably.

 

Attendees will learn:

  • Learning which features should you look for in evaluating a new Order Management and Accounting System

  • The benefits of QuickBooks

  • Learning which QuickBooks is best for the Promotional Products Distributor

About the Speaker:

 

Harriet Gatter is an independent consultant who works exclusively with Ad Specialty Distributors.  She was a distributor for 23 years and was also an adjunct accounting professor during part of that time (not as much fun as expected).  She sold her business in 2013, became certified as a QuickBooks ProAdvisor and started Accounting Support, LLC to work exclusively with Ad Specialty Distributors on their Order Management and Accounting Systems.  The mission of Accounting Support is to develop a complete back-office solution for Ad Specialty Distributors so they can tame the back-office work in a complete, time-efficient, and affordable way.
