How Intuit QuickBooks Point of Sale Pro 8.0 Can Help You

Get the information you need to run your business

See what's selling, what needs restocking, and more with easy one-click reports.

NEW! Inventory Turn Statistic
With Point of Sale you now have insight into how quickly you sell through items with the new Inventory Turn Statistic. The Inventory Turn Statistic is a commonly used retail statistic that measures the performance of an item and refers to how often an item "turns over."

See inventory items on hand for any date you choose
Simplify your monthly, quarterly and yearly closing procedures. You can easily view quantity on hand and inventory valuation for any date you choose. Improve your cash flow by purchasing the right merchandise in the right quantities at the right time.

See what's moving, what's low, what's on-order
See inventory levels for each item as you ring it up. Run real-time reports that show what you've got, what's hot and what you need to reorder. See which items are selling the most now, and whether or not an item's sales have been increasing or decreasing over time. Generate reports to help you keep your most popular items in stock and help you see which items need to be discounted.

Run sales reports for everything you track
Break down sales by day, item, employee, payment type and more. Enter commission rates by employee and Point of Sale automatically tracks sales transactions entered by each associate and calculates the correct commissions.

See your most important business information in one customizable view
The dashboard gives you access to key business metrics at a glance--all on one screen. Now you can customize the dashboard to only show the information you're interested in. You can add, remove or modify reports; even change the layout and add additional pages.

Automatically track inventory as you ring up sales

Point of Sale automatically adjusts inventory figures every time you make a sale, order, or return--which helps you keep your customers' favorite items on-hand without overstocking.

IMPROVED! Suggested Reorder Quantities
You now have options how to set reorder quantities in Point of Sale. You can set reorder quantities manually, reorder quantities to the reorder point plus add some additional quantity or choose how may days of supply to have in stock. From there, Point of Sale is able to automatically generate POs based on how you have set your reorder quantities.

Include pictures of inventory items
You can now easily upload item pictures directly into Point of Sale. Use them on your web site or to jog your memory when ordering. Pictures can also help prevent loss by catching price tag switching.

Track layaways and sales orders
Let customers pay for big-ticket items over time, and track their incremental payments. Create sales orders to track orders that aren't yet paid for, such as backorders or special orders, without impacting your books.

Automate your inventory tracking by scanning barcodes
