In our last article, we discussed the importance of doing a physical inventory at least once a year and discussed some things to think about to make sure you get the best possible result.  We talked about making sure you knew where the inventory to be counted was located.  We also discussed who would be counting the inventory and how well equipped they were to perform the count.  Lastly, we discussed using technology to make the count easier.  In this article, we want to complete the circle of inventory so to speak and talk about when to do the inventory, how can you be certain you are complete and what accounting entries, if any you will need to make.  First up is when:

In the life of every retailer, taking a physical inventory is one of the unavoidable things that you should do at least once a year. However, like someone who has a toothache and puts off going to the dentist, I have heard about every excuse NOT to take a physical inventory.  I have too much stuff, I don't have very much stuff, my dog ate my homework (oh wait, that is a different excuse).  Unless retailers commit to doing a physical inventory AT LEAST once a year, they risk paying too much in taxes, or worst yet, not being able to withstand an audit, since the Cost of Goods Sold are directly tied to your inventory asset value and sales.

So, once you have decided to do an inventory, what next?  In our next few articles, we want to help you to prepare for the physical inventory process.

Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows and there is a lot to like about it.  They have reintroduced a lot of functions back into the start menu, have made the operation system more secure, and introduced a new web browser to replace Internet Explorer.  The purpose of this article is not to extol the virtues of Windows 10, but to make you aware of Microsoft’s upgrade strategy. 

Windows 10 is a free upgrade to most every computer running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1.  What this means is that you can download and install the software for free.  In fact, Windows has made it so easy that they will download the update on to your computer and then prompt you to install it.  You are told that you can roll back to your old Windows within 30 days and then it is off to the races.  Seems pretty straight forward right? Well, like most things in life, stuff can happen.  We recommend planning for your upgrade.  Consider the following before pressing that button and installing the update:

Will English’s Reveal of QuickBooks Point of Sale (QBPOS) powered by Revel

Having worked with Revel more closely as well as attending additional training, I am ready to write this article to give insight into more of the product benefits and features.  We can see from QuickBooks Online, any cloud product is a moving target and QuickBooks Point of Sale powered by Revel is no different.  Intuit has worked with Revel extensively. Revel has opened up the Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) as well as Table Service vertical markets to the resellers who have been trained.  This was a huge win as the Revel product excels in these verticals.

Revel is the real deal in hospitality.  For the QSR market, the product out of the box supports modifiers, meaning that you can add or subtract items on the order.  Think, add mustard, and hold the mayo.  You can also set up standard modifiers for each item. For example, a sandwich always comes with lettuce and tomatoes.  You…
