QuickBooks software is perfect for small businesses that manage their inventory, sales and other business transactions. A comprehensive QuickBooks workshop for attendees at a beginner to intermediate level will be held from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. Friday, August 4 at the REI Oklahoma Conference Center, 2912 Enterprise Blvd., Durant. Registration is $115 per person and may be completed online at www.reiwbc.org. Fee includes hands-on instruction and lunch. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

Attendees at this intensive hands-on workshop will learn how QuickBooks can benefit their own businesses.

Attendees will enter the information on computers using practice sets and will have the opportunity to receive guidance and ask “how” and “why” questions. QuickBooks® Pro 2017 is used for the training, and laptops will be provided for attendees.

“QuickBooks is an essential business tool in today’s office,” said Barbara Rackley, REI Women’s Business Program Manager. “It has become the standard accounting software for many small businesses because it’s affordable, easy to use, and people really like the customizable reports.”
