“What Order Management & Accounting Software Is Best Suited for Ad Specialty Distributors Today?”

 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:

  1. Learning which features should you look for in evaluating a new Order Management and Accounting System
  2. The benefits of QuickBooks
  3. Learning which QuickBooks is best for the Promotional Products Distributor
