Zoho Assist: Getting rid of that invisible man!

Posted by Posted on by

Have you ever encountered an invisible man who stands like a wall between you and your remote computer? He stops you from controlling the remote computer, and you wouldn’t know why. And, your customer will be equally clueless after handing over her computer to you for troubleshooting. Now, this is a moment of frustration only IT pros can relate to.

If you are one such IT pro, you would’ve by now deciphered who this invisible man is. Yes, it is the User Access Control (UAC) window that appears only on the secure desktop and not the normal desktop of the Windows PC. UAC is a security setting enabled in Windows operating systems, starting from Vista. So, wouldn’t it be great if you could have a remote solution that is UAC-compatible?

Zoho Assist is one remote support software that is UAC-compatible; it intuitively detects the UAC window on the remote computer and displays the Run As Service notification. After you click Run As Service, you can continue your session with administrator privileges, which enables you to access the UAC window. And, all this you get without spending a cent, because UAC compatibility is available in the free version.

Introducing Inventory in Zoho Books: Stock Management made easy.

Posted by Posted on by

Yes, it is finally here. We’re excited to announce that inventory management will now be available in Zoho Books. Are you wondering why we’ve brought in inventory management in an accounting software?



For traders and product based companies who have stock constantly moving in and out, stock control can be just as crucial as managing finance. Often, they use two separate systems to manage these functions. Something like inventory control cannot be an app glued to your accounting software or an add-on. It should be a part of your books in real-time and stock movements should update instantly.


Coming to the inventory function itself, today, most businesses feel the heat trying to get a proper control over their stock. If managing inbound goods and billing for them is hard, tracking the outgoing goods and invoicing for them can be much harder. Apart from these, there is also the difficult task of inventory valuation and adjustment.


Zoho Books has addressed all these pain points with the new inventory feature. Here are some of the major issues that we’ve solved:


Tracking Inventory


We have linked up inventory to all the major modules so that you can manage it end-to-end. Right from purchase orders & bills to sales orders & invoices, we’ve got it all covered. Simply enable inventory tracking and everything else is automated.


Inventory Adjustments


The biggest pain for retailers would be making inventory adjustments. Always keep an eye out for damaged goods, difference in stock levels on recount, and a lot of other such situations that demand changing the inventory count in your books. Zoho Books lets you make positive and negative inventory adjustments, anytime. Capture it with all necessary details.


Efficient Reordering


The last thing you would want is stock unavailability when there is so much demand for your products. Set reorder levels and preferred vendors for your products in Zoho Books. If the items touch the reorder point, the system automatically triggers a notification asking you to refill the stock.


Accurate Inventory Valuation


Businesses struggle during tax payment as a result of improper accounting of their stock. Every product in your inventory has an asset value that can make a difference in your books. With Zoho Books, each and every product in your inventory is automatically accounted for as they come in and are being sold.

Zoho Books uses FIFO method of stock evaluation. It is the most accurate and the most recommended method for businesses. It covers all the costs associated with the sale of the goods and improves the accuracy of your profit reporting.


Knowing Your Inventory


At the end of the day, you are not doing good business if you do not know the status and value of your inventory. Zoho Books generates reports based on stock movement, availability and asset value of individual items. A comprehensive report called ‘FIFO cost lot tracking’ is also available, that accurately traces the incoming and outgoing path of goods ordered and sold in the business.


So there you have it, your ideal inventory and accounting combo. From now on, you don’t have to spend on 2 separate software for inventory and accounting. Enable inventory, use it and let us know what you think.
