Need better inventory, order management, and manufacturing than you get with QuickBooks Online? Get sales orders, assemblies, serial inventory, multiple locations and more, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing systems.
Integrate with QuickBooks Online to eliminate duplicate data entry
SOS Inventory’s most compelling feature is its tight integration with QuickBooks Online. We specialize in QuickBooks Online. It’s not an afterthought for us. Our software is built for QuickBooks Online from the ground up. We know what is possible with QuickBooks Online and what is not, and we’ve built our software to save you time and money by reducing duplicate data entry. The time (and thus money) that your staff saves by using our software goes directly to your bottom line.
Use sales orders to streamline your order management
QuickBooks Online does not include sales orders. Use SOS Inventory instead for all your order management needs. You can create sales orders and then create full or partial shipments as needed. In addition, you can create full or partial invoices from the sales orders. The invoices synchronize with QuickBooks Online.
Support multiple locations
SOS Inventory has full support for multiple locations. See instantly how much inventory is in each of your facilities. Purchase and receive materials at each location. Ship orders from one or more locations. Transfer items between locations. You’ll enjoy a key benefit of a high-priced inventory system at a reasonable cost.
Track items by serial number and track cost history for each specific item
SOS Inventory allows you to track specific items, including serial numbers for each. You can also track the history of each individual item, which allows you to see your specific profit-and-loss for any specific item. This allows you to manage your business more effectively.
Build assemblies and track multiple stages of work-in-progress (WIP)
SOS Inventory gives QuickBooks Online users the ability to track assemblies and kits (item groups). You can build assemblies from component items and your finished inventory will be updated along with raw inventory. In addition, you can have multiple stages of work-in-progress (WIP), so that you know exactly where your materials are at all times. You can also provide better customer service by more effectively estimating lead times.
Pick, pack, and ship
Using SOS Inventory, you can integrate your picking, packing, and shipping processes with QuickBooks Online. Create pick tickets / packing slips directly from sales orders, from QuickBooks Online invoices and sales receipts, or from scratch. SOS inventory also supports partial shipments.
Great Solution/Addition to QBO
Have been a customer since September of 2010 when it was OE Companion. Great compliment to Quickbooks Online. We wouldn't have a use for QBO if not for SOS. We are a manufacturing company and use sales orders to record our customer's orders which we don't invoice until we ship the completed job so SOS is incredibly valuable to us. The developer is extremely helpful and quick to respond to issues and resolve them.
Being an online solution paired with QBO we have eliminated the yearly cost of software upgrades and in house server maintenance. The subscription cost is a fraction of what we spent in the past. Plus workers are able to log in from anywhere as long as there is an internet connection. We use Macs in the office but some employees have Windows machines at home and can still access after hours or on weekends to stay productive. Sales orders have been entered on our iPhones in the field and I carry an iPad in the shop and can use the search box to look up info on Sales order numbers or Customer Purchase order numbers quickly without having to go back to a desk.

Great Service, easy to use
This is a great plugin for Quickbooks online. The spreadsheet upload feature made it easy to get started and when I had a question, they were very quick with responses. Great application.

Customer for several years
When we started using this software, the name was OECompanion. It later changed to SOS Inventory. We were then and continue to be now quite satisfied. SOS Inventory not only helps us to manage our inventory and production, it also provides a near seamless interface with QuickBooks Online. SOS Inventory is cost-effective, easy-to-use and the support staff is responsive, helpful and friendly. Unless QuickBooks ramps up its online offering, we see no reason to make a change.

Fills the Gap for Inventory Needs for QuickBooks Online
QuickBooks Online has many limitations when it comes to inventory-related tasks--such as the ability to receive a partial purchase order! SOS Inventory takes over the inventory functions and syncs the financials back to QuickBooks Online. It has a fairly intuitive interface thus making it easy to get up and going quickly. Support for the product has been great! The developer is rapidly adding more features. And as Intuit increases the level of integration with QuickBooks Online, the product will get even better! In less than a week, I helped my client get up and going on this product and they have been well satisfied.

Smart, nimble and cost convenient
We have used SOS since the company started in 2011. Our company wanted to manage its inventory and accounting using an online access solution. Excellent application that works seamlessly with QB. Currently we have two accounts with SOS and planning to open a third one this week for a new operation within the business. There is no solution in the market as good as SOS when it comes to functionality and pricing. Customer support is nimble and effective.

I appreciate that the program is ever changing to accommodate the users. However, what impresses me most is the support I've gotten when questions or problems arrose.

Super easy to get up and running
We migrated from an antiquated system to QB Online w/ SOS Inventory. We were up and running in less than a day. We have found it intuitive to work with and seamless with QB. Kind of slick, actually.

Easy to use...and very intuitive
SOS is a snap to learn and start up. I found the upload/download feature for Excel very simple to use. The on-line help function is a a nice feature to have, although I found on-line email support to be very responsive..either same day or next morning.
I don't think you can go wrong with this system.

What does SOS Inventory offer that QuickBooks Online does not?
QuickBooks Online offers very limited inventory functionality that works well for small service companies. However, many companies have more sophisticated inventory and order management needs. For example, if you use sales orders, track serial numbers, or do any sort of manufacturing, you’ll find you need more than what QuickBooks Online provides. Visit our website at http://www.sosinventory.com for a more detailed list of additional functionality supported by SOS Inventory.
How do I get my existing inventory and order data into SOS Inventory?
The app retrieves data from QuickBooks Online, and you can import data from an Excel or CSV file. In addition, we offer custom data conversion services if you would rather have us do the work for you.
How does SOS Inventory integrate with QuickBooks Online?
SOS Inventory synchronizes data between your QuickBooks Online account and SOS Inventory. The data exchange takes place behind the scenes, so you don’t have to worry about importing and exporting data manually.
