Solving the challenges of our clients and sharing the numerous success stories is our passion, our goal, and our joy as our clients are into diverse lines of businesses and various fields of work ranging from hotels, travels, financial services, co-operative societies, NGOs, etc.

Early this month, we were invited by a multi-store pharmacy to help fix their QuickBooks POS issues; they have different stores within and outside Lagos State but could not centralize their inventories nor link all the stores’ transactions to the head office for proper accountability.

The good news is that our expert and professional team solved this challenge by introducing and configuring QuickBooks POS multi-store. Now they can send and receive files to/from other stores, with higher transparency and profit on the increase!
