What do you need this to work with? An ecommerce store?

Hello Kate, It's an e-commerce store selling physical goods. We are, however, looking to use this software for production of said goods rather than the finished products. ie) tubes, bottles, labels, etc. Does this help?

Try Netsuite - the Saas software is well designed and economical. It won't cost you too much, and it can grow with your company for a long time. The CRM module is very decent, too.

Hi Daylin - I have extensive experience with LightSpeed. Sounds like it might be over the top for you but it's a great system. What are you looking to do? - Ben

Netsuite will do the trick but since you said you only need the very basic functionalities it might not be the cheapest solution. I recommend looking into it and agree that it could be a long term solution when you're looking to scale. -Ben

Netsuite is pricey for what you need. Why not Quickbooks? With that said, most ecommerce platforms handle zero cost products so you could track it that way. Spree Commerce is an option too but that works more as a conduit for plugging in other solutions. Stitch might be an option for you too - http://www.stitchlabs.com/features-inventory

Quickbooks Enterprise edition Ver 14 now has advanced inventory module as add-on

I am thinking of jumping to it having used AllOrders for quite while which is a synced database to QBooks

Daylin, from an accounting perspective, the PO/inventory side of your business is one part of an integrated accounting system. It's not a stand alone solution. Quickbooks is a program with different price points for tiny to mid size companies retailing, wholesaling and/or manufacturing goods.

QB does support creating "assemblies" of products and also "groups".

I'd be glad to chat with you about this further.
