Accounting made easy with QuickBooks manufacturing software

Without a proper system to track expenses and revenues, you will end up chasing both your employees, and your accountants come the tax filing season. This can get even more complicated if you have an external agency managing your books. Avoid the trouble with manufacturing software for QuickBooks like Katana.

Katana’s QuickBooks integration can simplify the entire process of tax filing by taking care of the painful and boring job of moving bills between systems for you. Moreover, when you change the status of an order in Katana, the system automatically generates and updates invoices based on sales orders and bills based on purchase orders – saving you time and effort of keeping two systems in sync.

Reprioritize according to changing needs

Be it a sudden burst of unanticipated demand or the changing geopolitical climate. Your business priorities can change at the drop of a hat. Reprioritizing orders and workflows with Katana is literally as simple as clicking and dragging tasks to reflect current priorities. Changes then automatically cascade into the remaining orders, making the entire task of reorganizing and realigning your production to meet the current priorities a cakewalk.

It could also be the case that you already have plenty of tools that you use to streamline some aspects of your business. Katana has a lengthy list of integrations that are supported. Moreover, you can also develop custom workflows using the Katana API — allowing you to leverage your invested tools.
