Hide All | Show All
Our current system keeps slowing down or locking up, or will be discontinued.

Accounting and inventory management software for your small business should be able to keep up with your activity.

Our profits are down, and we are unaware of how to fix it.

These crucial tools help you make the best decisions for your business, so your operation runs smoothly and you increase your profits.

Our customers are frustrated when we cannot respond quickly to their requests.

Quickly access your customers´ orders when they are on the phone with just a few clicks! Drop ship capability, fast customer lookup, and the ability to e–mail documents are just some of the tools that help you provide excellent service to your customers.

TurningPoint's Inventory module is feature–rich, a robust option for the small to mid–range budget.

This module allows you to track inventory by location and/or warehouse and identify top products so you can increase your efficiencies and increase profitability.

Detailed item records include 24–character IDs, long descriptions, aliases, product lines, serial/lot numbers and multiple user–defined fields. Routinely importing price lists from your suppliers or quickly mass updating prices upward or downward will save you time.

Multiple pricing methods are convenient with up to 20 price levels per item (or product line).

TurningPoint Inventory also offers the option to build assemblies, take physical inventory and easily enter mass updates.

Purchase Orders

The TurningPoint Purchase Orders module allows you to suggest, produce, process, and receive purchase orders for items and/or services. Convenience and efficiency are keys to the management of purchase orders. For that reason, TurningPoint offers the ability to generate purchase orders for easy drop shipment on specific sales orders. Save time and gain efficiency by automatically generating a check to accompany the Purchase Order, and show the prepayment amount in Accounts Payable when the goods/services are delivered.

Based on past demand and by calculating the differences between the current and minimum quantities, TurningPoint Purchase Orders alerts you when it is time to place an order, offers suggestions on how much to order, and even suggests a vendor. You're free to make changes as needed, and produce the order. Or, create a new order from scratch!
