The owner of a vegetable farm was interested in replacing his manual accounting process with QuickBooks. The trouble was that many stores changed their orders when he arrived to deliver the produce, making the prepared invoice invalid. Customers also had a habit of showing up to the farm and buying with cash, leaving no record of the sale.
Dunathan Consulting helped him develop flexible processes that enabled him to make the best use of QuickBooks without complicating his sales interactions. Ultimately he was able to generate reports to give him up-to-date sales data during the growing season for better decision-making.
