iOffice Product Management
The retail end of the salon business is just as important as the servicing one, and iOffice can help manage products as tightly or loosely as business owners see fit. Add new products, make changes to existing ones, review and create product orders, manage your salon’s inventory, and more.

Fix Extreme RAT Entries
Finds products that had were transferred in using the Inventory Manager or on a product order, that have an out of the ordinary count. An easy mistake like typing the product code into the count field can cause this, but should also be addressed when discovered.
Finds inventory cost and price problems and allows you to fix them, one product at a time. If a product was transferred in with a cost or price of zero, the Balance Inventory tool will find them for you and allow you to select listed item and make individual changes.
Fix Deleted Product Quantities
Find all deleted products with an out of balance inventory count, price, and cost, that should actually be set to 0 since the product is no longer in the inventory. Click the Adjust Inventory button to automatically set all of these values to 0, balancing out the deleted product.
