HandiFox Software


HandiFox is an inventory tracking and sales management system designed for small to midsize inventory-centric businesses in a variety of industries, such as retail, wholesale/distribution and manufacturing.

The app is available on-premise and in the cloud and works with Android mobile devices. Users can manage various inventory processes from their smartphones, which then sync back to QuickBooks.

HandiFox integrates and syncs with both desktop and online versions of QuickBooks so users can process transactions and inventory flows. When a user creates a purchase order in QuickBooks, it is sent to their mobile device. Upon receipt, the user can scan the barcodes to confirm receipt of the correct items.

With the mobile app, stock pickers can use smart devices to scan barcodes to confirm shipments are correct and to print packing slips. The system also features standard inventory management modules, including demand forecasting, inventory optimization, vendor managed inventory and others.

HandiFox Desktop is priced per mobile device, while HandiFox Online offers subscription plans.

Handifox! Your value for money software!!

Handifox inventory mobile software is designed as an interactive mobile app to aid the management of inventories from different locations thereby enabling efficient stock management across all locations. This has brought tremendous improvement in tracking our inventory. As users of Quickbooks Accounting software, we were initially a bit skeptical before we later realized Handifox could interact with Quickbooks. What a sigh of relief was our initial reaction because we had found a business solution. Quickbooks Accounting software users like us have their Inventory management made easy with handifox inventory. All transactions done on the handheld devices are synchronised with the quickbooks software, and stocks invoiced have their corresponding deductions from the main QOH. Handifox inventory offers as snapshot of inventory transaction from various sites which help individual warehouse managers to effectively monitor and control their stock movements just by a tap. This software was discovered when our company started with product distribution in Ghana. Timely discovery I must say! Since the introduction of Handifox, there is actually been a change in the face of our operations from inventory management to sales. Stock movements between our warehouses across Ghana and beyond is now automated and made easy. All our operations are now centralized because of handifox inventory software, transactions are controlled and monitored from one point. Handifox Inventory works perfectly with Quickbooks no matter the version, my experience so far is great. We can only hope the newer version will improve some of the features. Our company can affirm that it's been worth it investing in handifox. Now distribution is done in a much more professional way and this earns us respect from both our staff and other competitors. Handifox! Your value for money software!!

Pros

The fact that Handifox, is enable to synchronize sales and inventory data with Quickbooks. Effective stock management.

Cons

limitation with deleting transactions on the handheld device or viewing transaction history.

Easy to use, quick, works well with our quickbooks software.

Pros

What I found to be the best feature is when we have back orders. Before trying to keep track of orders that sometimes took a few weeks to get the product in and then make sure you fill the order properly. This not only continues to keep the order to your attention but also allows you to keep you billing straight and only charge your customers for what they have receive and sends the new bill when the order in complete.

Cons

When you do have items that are back ordered, if you do not fill any part of that one item, it does not show in the packing slip as being back ordered.

We have customers who put in open PO and when we do not fill one item at all on that PO, it does not show on the packing slip as being part of that PO. It says in the system as open, but does not tell the customer that I know it is part of the order.

Handifox is like Quickbooks on your phone.

Pros

I enjoy how easy it is to create a Quickbooks Sales Order on my phone, and have my employee deliver the product, and capture our customer's signature for proof of delivery. I also like how easy it is to sync my phone with my Quickbooks data so I can see the QOH of all the products I have in stock, across all our locations in real time.

Cons

When faxing a invoice to my customer from the Handifox app, after pressing the fax button, I dont like how the software makes you pick either email or gmail to send the fax. It should have a default setting so that it knows your preference. Also, when opening the receive payment window, the numeric keyboard should open at the same time so you just have to enter the amount received.

We have had a great experience. Excellent support addressed every need we had that they could.

The ability to barcode and track our inventory accurately! Administration is easy. Apps are easy to use in our production - as long as procedures are followed properly all inventory should be accurately accounted for!

Pros

It interfaces well with quickbooks without having to have another inventory software. Apps syncronize with quickbooks inventory and update back and forth. Apps are easy to install and user friendly.

Cons

The HF software can only be installed at the host without the ability to have other workstations utilize the HF software (other than the apps which operate in production).

Great functionality without breaking the bank account!

We priced out dozens of options for helping us to manage inventory on the go, and Handifox stood out for its simplicity, usability on a number of devices, and for syncing seamlessly with Quickbooks. Over the past year and a half of using Handifox, we have not been disappointed! Being able to generate invoices and manage inventory, even tracking lot numbers on sales, has been invaluable for our business. Not a very well-known app, but everyone I've told about it has been very impressed with its capability - and the price!!! As a very small farm & food processing business, we certainly couldn't afford a lot of the other inventory management systems out there, but Handifox has provided everything we were looking for.

Pros

Easy integration with Quickbooks - nothing fancy, but gets the job done!

Cons

Installation on our desktop was a bit glitchy at first - the instruction booklet could have been clearer, but customer service to get us on the right track was great.

Review

overall the program has saved lots of time and paperwork. It has helped with inventory control. the few software issues we ran into, the customer service / tech team has been phenomenal with their time and help.

Pros

Removes the paperwork and eases the flow of orders/invoicing between the office and the warehouse.

Cons

on handheld while picking orders you cant see full descriptions.
on handheld while picking orders while you can see on top the qty needed to pick its not easy to see and its not by the line item you are working on.

Handifox

Our company imports foods from many countries and we distribute them throughout the United States. We were looking for software that would work with our QuickBooks enterprise to keep track of Inventory and generate sales orders without manually creating a sales order. We did not want to move to a different software because we have used QuickBooks for over 15 years. After searching and talking to so many companies we decided to go with handifox. This software paired with QuickBooks and a barcode scanner did everything that we needed it to do and a lot more. No more reentering sales orders manually, No more printing statements, No more counting inventory, No more canceling a sales order because a customer is over limit and much more. The software is very user friendly and if we had any problems the tech support was always there to help 24/7. I would have to say that the tech support over at Handifox is the best! We have never had a better support team anywhere else. I would have to say that we get better support from Handifox then Dell. Not only is their tech support team knowledgeable with their software they are SUPER friendly. If you ask me I would actually consider them as my friends rather than a support team. Overall we love Handifox and their support team, I would not know how to keep our business going now days without Handifox.

Handifox Inventory System Review

We were starting from scratch with inventory. Over the past year it has been a challenge to develop and implement procedures needed for inventory operations. Since Handifox was so easy to use, helped us as we were challenged with pretty much everything else...

Pros

The software ease of use is the most important feature for us.

Cons

There is some inconsistency in when the software keyboard shows up. Inevitably, it is there when we don't want it, and not there when we would like to have it. Sometimes it is simply in the way.

One word: SUPERB

Pros

We could not be as successful as we are without the excellent help we receive from customer service, specifically Eugene B. He is the most responsive, technically savvy tech rep I have dealt with in my 30 years in business. He listens, responds quickly, and gets us rolling again whenever we call. Likewise, the business office is very efficient, friendly, and responsive. If your company works with Quickbooks and needs remote data interaction, Tecom/HandiFox is worth your evaluation.

Cons

We have had not had any negative encounters with this company

Best Bang For The Buck !!

Looked at so many software packages out there none had the dynamics of Handifox. Customer rep and his crew have looked at all the competition and designed a package that includes all the whistles and bells of and up packages. Customer service is top notch, it did take a month to really get going so think about the service plan package I made the mistake of not getting it. Integrated with my quick books, multiple warehouses and off site invoicing without WiFi or cell service. Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

Pros

The depth it offers for the price

Cons

The didn't design the new to accept the older scanner.

We use this at a customer site where we have consigned inventory.

HandiFox is a great program for handling sales off site. We use it a little differently then most companies do. Instead of one of our people going from customer to customer selling out of a truck or having multiple warehouses shipping to customers we have placed inventory at a customers site. As they pull inventory they scan it and build their own invoice. The invoice is then e-mailed to us thru the scanner and a bill is generated in QuickBooks and inventories automatically adjusted. HandiFox generates a list of inventory to replenish based on sales and keeps track of where inventory is located. It has helped us expand our business greatly.

Nothing less then Exceptional Service and Training.

Ease and simplicity of product tracking and sales.

Pros

The ability to move inventory from the sales floor, to the refurbishing department, so items could not be sold which needed repairs. I set up the Refurbishing Department as a different site. When inventory was moved to the refurbishing location, it could not be sold from the main location. This is an incredible option which has been most helpful in ensuring my customers get equipment in working condition.

Handifox has been very helpful with managing our warehouse since we starting using from Barcodes to sales orders and invoices it does exactly everything we wanted to see it do for us.

Pros

It's ease of use and functionality in the warehouse.

Cons

Being unable to delete a wrongly created invoice on the scanner rather then sending it into quickbooks.

Beta testing and implementation.

at first it was a bit complicated to get the hang of it and i found that the way its setup to kinda force you to buy the support package for the same thing twice is kinda annoying.

Pros

it has some good working options and seems to do the job as expected.

Cons

is not very user friendly and has much room for improvement.
