Having easy access to powerful online apps like EZ Analytics for Inventory right from within QuickBooks will help small businesses as they look for new ways to save money and operate more efficiently.
Arlington, TX (PRWEB) February 23, 2010
Alterity, Inc., a leading supplier of inventory business software solutions for small and medium-sized businesses for more than two decades recently released its first web-based application, EZ Analytics for Inventory™, in the Intuit App Center. The application simplifies inventory analysis for small and medium businesses, enabling users to find the right balance between customer service and inventory investment.
The application works with QuickBooks® to help businesses quickly and easily discover ways to optimize inventory and improve purchasing situations with easy-to-use interactive, web-based tools for overstock analysis, understock analysis, reorder analysis and monthly sales analysis.
Users can create unlimited "what if" scenarios to identify obsolete, slow moving and stale products that can be put to better use, to help ensure items are available when customers want to buy, to help users make more informed and timely product reorder decisions, and to help determine future buying and production needs.
Analytical data is easy to understand through the interactive, graphical display of the data and the recommendations EZ Analytics for Inventory suggests based on the analyzed data are straightforward guidelines for inventory optimization.
"We are pleased to have Alterity join the Intuit Partner Platform as the first inventory analysis offering in our app store," said Alex Chriss, director of the Intuit Partner Platform. "Having easy access to powerful online apps like EZ Analytics for Inventory right from within QuickBooks will help small businesses as they look for new ways to save money and operate more efficiently."
Designed for QuickBooks users, EZ Analytics for Inventory has been developed on the Intuit Partner Platform. This platform enables seamless data sharing with QuickBooks Pro, Premier and Enterprise Solutions versions 2009 and later.
"Developing EZ Analytics for Inventory on the Intuit Partner Platform has introduced many opportunities for us, including plans for additional analytical tools for the QuickBooks community," Ron Souder, Alterity CEO and Founder said.
