Good inventory control is essential to properly running a business. Use seasonal minimum and maximum inventory levels and sales history to purchase effectively and efficiently. If you run out of stock, you will lose sales. If you have too much stock, the lack of cash flow will hurt you. Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software makes inventory control easy for you to track, print out reports and always be aware of your stock level.

Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software is the best choice for the management of your sporting goods store. Manage your inventory, sales, special orders, repair parts, and service work. It's much more than an accounting program. Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software is a fully integrated business software application that does more than manage your books - it helps manage your business.
Many sporting goods stores custom order inventory for their clients. Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software will allow you to start an invoice at the Point of Sale, sell the inventory item and take a deposit. The system will remind you to call the supplier and order it. When it arrives, the system will remind you to set the inventory item aside for the customer, ensuring that you or your staff do not accidentally sell the item to another customer.
When accounts receivable invoices are entered, they are immediately posted to the customer account and to the aged accounts receivable list. This report shows you who owes you money, how much, and how long it has been outstanding in the current, 30 day, 60 day, and 90 day columns.

Posting vendor bills is easy. When you receive inventory, the total amount of the purchase is posted to just one ledger number. The inventory being received is listed and detailed in the purchase order module so there is no need to duplicate this information, saving you time and reduces the possibility of errors.

When accounts receivable invoices are entered, they are immediately posted to the customer account and to the aged accounts receivable list. The Aged Accounts Receivable report shows you who owes you money, how much, and how long it has been outstanding in the current, 30 day, 60 day and 90 day columns.
As an option, you can reprint this report for any time back in history. This is very important as you might start invoicing in the current month, before being finished with the system in the previous month and printing that previous months report. Many of our competitors cannot print the reports for previous months even if they let you enter data for the previous months. Once you finish the entry for a month, you can print or email statements to the customer.
Maintain your company's identity by creating your own statements. You can add your logo and specify exactly where you want the fields printed. We recommend using a laser printer because of the speed and quality of the print, but if you are using an old dot matrix printer, Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software has a special setup section so that the statements can be optimized for different printers.
When payments are received, you can specify how much was paid against each invoice. This allows for better control of the system and easier reconciliation with your customers. Of course, Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii offers several shortcut keys to simply pay all the invoices in one fell swoop or to pay invoices up to a given amount.
You can enter invoices into any month in the current year or previous year, and reprint most reports for any given period. This allows you to continue invoicing first thing in the morning of a new month, even if the back office is not finished charging interest, adjusting accounts and printing statements. Many other systems require that you completely finish a month before being able to start a new month or year.
On the customer account, you can specify the credit limit for the customer, in addition to the price schedule to use, charge type, and comments. If you try to create an invoice that will put the customer over their credit limit, the system will warn you. If you do not have the security clearance to override, the invoice can not be completed until the account is paid.
Collections on outstanding debts are never fun, but Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii can make them easier. You can print an aged A/R report, complete with customer name, phone number and a list of all the outstanding invoices. Optionally, this report can be configured to only include customers with balances older than a certain number of days, such as over 60 days or 90 days so that you don't have to manually skip over the current customers.
As you call each customer, you can enter your comments into the appointment scheduler and set a date to review their file and ensure they have paid, and if not, to call them back. By keeping track of all you customer contacts, it's easier to control when to call and remind them of their past promises.
Posting vendor bills is easy. For example, when you receive inventory, the total amount of the purchase is posted to just one ledger number. The inventory being received is listed and detailed in the purchase order module, so there is no need to duplicate this information.
If you negotiate payments in installments such as 3 equal payments, Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software will track those distributed due dates, remind you when you need to pay the bill, and how much to pay.
While entering accounts payable bills, the prices on the original purchase order can easily be cross-referenced to ensure they are correct and that you have received the goods.
If you are entering information from a previously handwritten check, you can do that without having to print them. Incredibly, many other systems force you to print the checks, regardless. After creating a check, you can choose to post-and-pay it, or simply batch for later payment. This lets you spend some time setting up the checks. Once you are ready, you can load the checks into the printer and then print and post the batch at one time.
In some cases, you may get a large shipment of goods from a supplier and be allowed to pay in thirds, one month at a time. Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii POS software will allow you to enter·a time payment plan, with distributed payments. This information is used with the cash requirement report to determine which bills have to be paid.
If you deal with buying groups, then you'll buy the inventory and goods from a supplier but pay the buying group. This is because to get great discounts, the buying groups often pay the bills very quickly or at least guarantee payment. When you use buying groups, you'll be able to report on all the purchases from a given supplier, even if you don't owe them any money, and be able to look at the buying group from a financial point of view to see what you owe. You can even use this technology if you purchase goods with your credit card. There, you buy from a supplier but pay Visa, Mastercard or American Express.
Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii accounting software is fully integrated. That is, when you create an invoice, the general ledger is updated immediately instead of having to run a batch process at some later time.
Batch processing was the old way of handling the ledger transactions and it had many problems. Most notably is the fact that a separate procedure is done to post the invoices, payments, bills and checks into the general ledger with lots of chances for something to go wrong. More importantly, a batch total is posted, making it very difficult to reconcile the accounts at a later date. We have seen many examples of tax auditors having to spend days or weeks looking through the paper batch reports, and nobody wants the tax police hanging around.
With Akamai Point of Sale Hawaii accounting software, each line you see on an invoice is stored as its own record in the database. When viewing the general ledger, the system views the same lines, but from a different point of view and on a different index. The result is simplicity and therefore little chance of problems. If you edit and fix an invoice, the ledger is fixed at the same time because it's the same record. This also saves a huge amount of hard drive space and backup storage requirements. And then, when the Sales Tax Police do arrive, they can view the ledger details and for each line, they will see the date, invoice number, customer name, and amount of sales tax collected. Fast, simple and error free.
