Acctivate Inventory Management Software's long history of helping small businesses across the world achieve success through the use of small business technology is the featured subject of the segment aimed at educating business professionals on innovative tools.

The segment will be aired on popular broadcast stations, including FOX and ABC with the first release premiering on April 2, 2016 at 7:30 am on the Minneapolis-St. Paul station, KSTC-TV.

Acctivate Inventory Management Software solves challenges small and midsize businesses face by adding capabilities for purchasing, omni-channel order fulfillment, customer service and other business management needs to existing accounting software, such as QuickBooks®.

Acctivate also keeps small businesses competitive by automating business processes to replace manual efforts such as spreadsheets, which can be insecure and the cause of critical inefficiencies; and by seamlessly integrating with best-in-breed software for accounting, EDI, shipping, eCommerce and more.

In the television segment, Acctivate customer Derrick Ricketts of Aidan Gray Home, a company that has used Acctivate since 2003 shares the challenges they faced prior to Acctivate, how Acctivate solved their issues and how Acctivate has allowed them to grow and compete as a leader in the home furnishings industry.

“Acctivate helped us grow exponentially very quickly because it took all the data and put it into one source and, with that one source, we were able to manage our inventory, our order processing - our customer service was more accurate in the information they could give to our customers, which made our responses more immediate and served our customers’ needs.

When you combine all those factors together, Acctivate helped grow our business and it continues to do so today,” Derrick Ricketts of Aidan Gray Home said in his segment interview.

A business and technology consultant’s perspective is also shared during the segment with an interview from Michelle Barr of Firefly Business Group, who has worked with Acctivate for over a decade. Barr has seen many of her small business clients outgrow accounting solutions, and find success with the addition of Acctivate.

“QuickBooks customers will commonly grow out of the QuickBooks software, but they prefer to stay with the financials, so Acctivate is a great solution that connects to the QuickBooks software and allows this advanced functionality for inventory management and distribution customers,” Barr said during the interview.

Brian Sweat, Acctivate CEO states in the TV segment, “Technology is the big equalizer” and Acctivate fills that role for small business owners needing to take control of their company’s growth and reap the benefits thought to only be achievable by larger companies.

"Acctivate allows small business owners to take what they traditionally use Excel spreadsheets for - managing their products, their orders, their vendor relations, their customer relations, and move it into an automated system that lets them keep track of every order and make sure that everything is fulfilled on time, customers are happy and inventory is well-managed," Sweat said.
