Default Inventory and Purchasing Software and Services

Hi all.

My name is Jay, and I recently started up a small business with my wife and a few others in our profession, procurement services.

We offer small businesses that don't have the skillset, the time, or the need for a full time procurement (purchasing, inventory, bill of material building, etc) person the services they need to get on track, short term or long term.

We have also formed a few partnerships in the industry, to be able to provide comprehensive inventory solutions for these same small businesses if they have no inventory/accounting systems. I have been researching for over 3 years the right group(s) to partner with to acquire the best software and over the years the list has been narrowed down to the best and most cost effective! I can not get someone a complete system for under $1000, and am in the process of starting up a more cost effective hosted solution over the next six months depending on interest.....looking in the area of $50 a month per user...which definitely kicks butt over having to buy a server, other software to run that server, and pay an IT guy to maintain it. Although with up to 5 users it can be driven through Windows on linked computers. The net version will also allow "anywhere access" though, a definite plus, home, store, laptop while on vacation (because who in small business gets a real vacation these days?).

I would love you all to come and check out my website, outbuy.ca, and give me your opinions as well, and of course pass my name along to anyone you think may need this service.

I can not wait until the E-store front end we are working on comes into affect!

Can you see the procurement boy with stars in his eyes finally having a e-commerce system that ties seemlessly into inventory and accounting directly and still being in 4 figures? Wow!

I look forward to learning some more about small business on this post, and growing mine! Thanks for having us.

Default thanks

Thanks all.

I finally figured out all the features on this, my first forum board.

I look forward to learning from you all, and if anyone has questions about inventory or inventory systems, you now know where to ask!
