I’ve typically been an employee, and when I’ve been an independent contractor it’s been easy to keep track of my revenue and expenses on a spreadsheet because it was a relatively small segment of my business.
That’s changing, as I’ve grown my business and am doing more independent contracting work, plus carrying a very small amount of inventory.
What accounting / bookkeeping / billing software do you use? I’d like to be able to track revenue and expenses, have a few inventory management features (I only carry a couple of products so it doesn’t need to be a full blown inventory module), and I’d like to be able to provide payment links to events that customers pre-register.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated
(I’m a former accountant so I understand what I need, but I don’t have any idea of what’s currently out there in the marketplace because I used proprietary in-house systems)
I too do not use computer software but I am participating in a free 30 day trial of a new app that may take care of your needs. The app is from MINDBODY and it is pretty amazing. It will keep track of your sales, inventory, clients can book appointments with you online or register for your classes all from the mobile app. They can even pay for their services from the app. You can check your clients in right from your mobile device and it will keep track of everything. I’ve just begun learning the app so I don’t have too much that I can share with you but it seems pretty amazing to me thus far.
If you would like to know more about this software company, let me know and I will provide you with the sales rep that I worked with. BTW – if you decide to try this software, make sure you mention that you have a profile or that you are a member of IDEAFIT to receive a discount.
