Should I maintain inventory in QB?

My company services and repairs computers. I provide a large variety of
pieces and parts to my clients, including internal components, memory,
drives, printers, usb hubs, mice, keyboards, etc. Other than 20-30 new
parts that I keep for common repairs and upgrades, I do not really maintain
an inventory to speak of. More often than not, I order parts per job,
repair, or order.

What is the primary factor to consider when deciding whether to maintain
inventory in QB and when to use non-inventory items?

thank you,

jm

IF it's possible (legally) to not maintain an inventory, then the
considerations are: extra work vs. information obtained. For example, a book
store that gets two dozen Sunday NY Times dropped off early Sunday morning
would be foolish to enter them into inventory inasmuch as all will be sold
within 24 hours. Obviously, there would be extra work for no gain.

In other words, a five-dollar solution to a five-cent problem is not a good
idea. The status of 20-30 items can be kept on index cards.

If you can stand up in front of a crowd with a bag over your head and say "I
do not really maintain an inventory to speak of", then you do not need to
maintain a perpetual inventory system in QB.

Please note the crowd and bag are not required, neither is standing up.

Does that mean, "no."

Yes we have no inventory.
These was this guy who wrote a song along those lines,
























called "Yes we have no oranges".




































But that's as far as he got,






































he couldn't find a word to rhyme with "oranges".
