Can inFlow handle services?

Note: We will sunset inFlow v2 on July 31, 2024. This means inFlow v2 will no longer be offered for download and we will no longer be hosting its Knowledge Base and support articles.

Absolutely. While inFlow does focus on inventory you can also add items to your product list which you identify as services (so that inFlow will not track inventory for those items). What this means is that you can set up products for service fees or labour charges you may have and add them to your sales. You can even track the profit on those by entering the cost of that service or labour into the product record.

To add an Item as a service:

  1. Create a New Product by going to Main Menu > Inventory > New Product
  2. Enter the name of the service or labour charge in the Item Name/Code field
  3. Choose “Service” as your type from the dropdown and add any other details to the record you wish to include (such as the wage of the employee performing the labour).
  4. Click Save.
