There are also a number of details about QuickBooks app that we want to highlight:

1. On the device scanning is not very efficient when you switch from one item to another. Every time you scan one item want to switch to another, the system will show the dialog window with the question.

2. After you pick the Sales Order on the device, the Invoice is not created automatically and the QOH for the item is not changed. The user has to create the Invoice manually and only then the QOH is updated.


We are here just to help you to choose – only you can decide for yourself.

We hope that you will make a right choice.
