Growth demands operational improvements
Paul O’Brien, Eclipse Aesthetics’ CFO, spoke about their search for software to meet their needs on the inventory control and order processing side…
“We originally were using a proprietary system to handle all our order processing, inventory control and accounting. It was character-based software and fairly dated, where you still used function keys to move around the screens.
When we were using the character-based software it was very cumbersome to do anything as far as order processing. Any time you had a correction, credit, return or any exceptional type of situation it was very cumbersome to do it efficiently.”
They started using QuickBooks Enterprise for accounting. Now they needed to handle inventory and order processing with software that could integrate with QuickBooks.
O’Brien mentioned another factor in their software search…
“We were looking at mainly cost-savings.”
