SOS Inventory (SOS) is THE partner product to QuickBooks Online for product-based businesses, providing comprehensive inventory, order processing and manufacturing control to QuickBooks customers who stock, make or buy products. Below is our recent interview with Neal Shaw, CEO of SOS Inventory:
Q: Neal, can you tell us something more about SOS Inventory and its availability?
A: SOS Inventory is available in the cloud, and is easy to use and implement. It is also highly affordable for SME customers. SOS is ideal for supporting a flexible workforce with remote working, allowing direct access from anywhere on the planet.
Q: Don’t others do this as well?
A: Yes, there are other solutions that offer similar solutions, but SOS was built specifically for QuickBooks Online, so the integration is unmatched in the market. Further, no other solutions come near our price point. Without question, SOS has the best value of any QuickBooks inventory solution, offering functionality for less than a hundred dollars per month that would cost thousands elsewhere.
Q: Why are you so successful?
A: Functionality and price point aside, the reason is simple. We offer ‘weapons grade’ customer service. We go out of our way to help and listen to our customers to ensure we have a solution that will make them more competitive today and in the future. We want our customers to love us. Our service is second to none! Being just GOOD is not good enough for SOS; we need our customers to believe we are OUTSTANDING, and we won’t rest until we achieve that!
Q: You’ve recently launched a special business assistance program for those affected by coronavirus; could you tell us something more?
A: We are an SME. Our customers are SMEs. Our friends run SMEs. Thus, we understand SMEs and the challenges they are facing right now. And we want to help!
For existing customers, we are offering the ability to add new users at no extra cost, so if the working patterns of your staff are now changing as remote working becomes more prevalent, you don’t have to worry about additional software costs.
For SME’s who are not yet SOS customers, we are offering the ability to transition to SOS, and we will carry the transition costs by offering support, training and a dedicated account manager at no cost, hopefully making life easier whilst you work through these difficult times. And anyone can try the software for free with our 14-day free trial.
Q: Can you give us insights into your features?
A: QuickBooks is great! It is the world’s leading SME financial accounting software solution. But it isn’t great if you buy, make and sell stuff and are looking for good inventory management and operational control. This is where SOS comes in. SOS Inventory allows QuickBooks Online to manage sales orders, assemblies, multiple locations and much more, offering the business owner a 360 degree view of his business, as well as a fully integrated system that delivers ‘one version of the truth’ which is difficult to achieve when you are running your business from multiple spreadsheets.
Q: Why SOS Inventory? What makes you the best choice?
A: SOS Inventory was built from the ground up to work with QuickBooks Online and currently is rated number one in the Intuit App Store. Our solid reputation is the result of our tireless customer support, provided at no cost to the user. We offer a powerful suite of tools comparable to enterprise level inventory software at a small fraction of the cost. We could easily charge $500/month for our service, but we are a small business – and we understand what a small business endures, especially when they are just getting started or need to lower operating costs. Our plans start at just $39.95/month with no credit card required.
Q: Can you give us any hints as to what else we might expect to see from SOS Inventory this year?
A: We have just launched our mobile application for the iPhone/iPad in the Apple App Store. Until recently, the mobile application has only been available privately to our members. We expect to roll out the Android version in the coming months.
Further, we have some upgrades coming later this year that we aren’t quite ready to announce publicly yet, but they are gamechangers. We listen intently to our customers when we are developing our software roadmap, and as a result we are constantly improving our product, ensuring our customers gain and maintain a competitive edge by being an SOS customer. Best of all, updates to our product come to you painlessly at no cost, through the ongoing cloud software upgrade program.
