Accounting software with inventory control for small business ?

Accounting software with inventory control for...

I'm trying to evaluate the best software for a new client who's start up business (a shop) will be both selling products to the public repairing electronic equipment.

The software will therefore have to be capable of inventory management and some sort of time recording against repair jobs with the ability to show profitability on the repair work and on product sales.

Being a start up he does not have a big budget. 

Could anyone offer any advice please ?

Out of context with thread but...

The conventional way of doing that would be to use the nominal code for the stationery/coffee/petrol dimension and the department code for the John/Mark/??? dimension.

Nice try

Hey Learner Are you trying to Hijak my question ? :-)

I agree with Vidpark's reply though. Nominal codes plus department codes.

Now, can we get back to software for inventory management and time recording for a high street business selling and repairing electronic equipment please ? :-)

Open Source.... ?

This might be worth a look.... it is a long time since I delved into the OpenSource community for Accounting & Finance software... but things do seem to have improved somewhat.
