What is Alcalytics?
Alcalytics is a suite of custom applications that offers Canadian liquor agents a streamlined alternative to traditional sales and inventory management tools.
What level of accounting knowledge is required to use the system?
We have designed Alcalytics to be easy to use. You do not need to understand accounting. If you can create a Purchase Order and reconcile a Vendor Bill you will know how to use Alcalytics. To help, we offer easy instructions and simple, identifiable forms so you can quickly and confidently get up and running.
What type of inventory valuation methods does Alcalytics support?
In short, Alcalytics values inventory based on the first-in first-out (FIFO) method. We understand that inventory is likely your largest and most important current asset and that proper measurement of inventory is critical to ensure accurate financial statements. Alcalytics uses a complex set of algorithms, that you need not understand, to calculate and report on your inventory in the most accurate and efficient way possible.
