QuickBooks Made Quicker
We all know the old adage, “Time is money.” And let’s face it, to be successful in business these days, you must wisely economize on both.
Good news! If you use Sage and/or QuickBooks, you can actually program your accounting software to save your bookkeeper valuable minutes every day that really add up!
For instance, when you’re setting up a vendor, both programs have options that allow you to select the first and second choices of the expense category, under that particular vendor to which you would typically post. For instance, if your vendor is a larger business store, you may be posting under separate categories within, such as “office supplies” or “marketing and promotion”.
If the categories are not preprogramed under the vendor, in QuickBooks, all you do is type in the first few letters of the expense category, and your choices will pop up. On Sage, it’s not as user-friendly an option, but when you type in the first number that you think it is, it will, at least, take you to the general area.
Not only does this little tip save on time, but it also reduces errors.
If your office accounting program is not already set up for these time saving tips, take a few minutes on your next accounts payable run, and program in the vendors that have not yet been established.
Invest a little effort now, to save a ton of time in the future. As personal development legend, Jim Rohn points out, “You can always get more money, but you can’t get more time.”
