HandiFox Online Standalone: on-the-go inventory management with no ties to accounting software for micro-to-small businesses

HandiFox Online Standalone Version
Inventory analysis is a practice which, if applied from the very start, can save your inventory-based business many pains or even prevent a failure. Many retail and service companies operating some or large amounts of units, however, continue paying lip service to automating inventory management. At some point, they start looking for a software solution that can efficiently handle their inventory but realize that they would have to reorganize the whole business in order for things to start clicking. Is this really supposed to be that troublesome?

As per the Small Business Association(SBA)’s 2018 Small Business Report, there are around 30 million small businesses in the US which account for the 99.9 % of all businesses across the country. Micro businesses, as it occurs, are a substantial part of that amount and crucial for the economy, so says the Association for Enterprise Opportunity in their report. Micro and small companies are enterprises with very few employees (‘micro’ would usually count around 5 people on staff while a company with up to 500 employees would be considered ‘small’). This type of business owners is very cautious about investment in tech and experiments potentially changing their workflows or ultimately stopping operations.

They are after a system that would automate warehouse management, bring visibility into the stock on hand, record shipments (and sales, if needed). When they hit the Internet searching for an app that could do that, they might be required to have or purchase accounting software because the app won’t work without it or upload their company file for testing purposes. What if they don’t use QuickBooks, Xero or Sage? What if they are not ready to share their company data with an app that has not earned their trust? What if they simply do not have the budget for buying an accounting system AND an inventory control app just yet?

HandiFox Online Standalone is a cloud-based inventory app that circumvents multiple barriers on your way to fusing automated inventory control into your warehouse(s). You do not need to have an accounting system implemented or share company data with the app. You do not need to be based in the US either – it can easily be any country in the world. You do not need to look for a specific type of device or OS to work with HandiFox – it can be a desktop computer, a mobile device with any OS and Internet access. Last but not least, you do not have to physically be at the office or at one of your sites to run your business – the cloud will take you there from any place in the world. HandiFox lets you:

– Configure taxes and currencies. You can set up ‘group’ taxes that add together local, federal and other tax types and can be assigned to items

Effective Inventory Management for Food Manufacturers and Distributors
