Self Employed or just software users, Please Help

Introduction:
I jsut started part-time working for a manufacturing company with a small office but big warehouse/manufacturing department. The thing is where i'm working is just a small office with only the boss and another employee. the other departments are in other states/countries.

Problem:
my employer wants me to be able to keep track of the inventory and able to create invoices, estimates, purchase orders etc... and have them linked to the inventory control. The sofware he gave me is probably not the best on the shelf. it's by a company called MySofware and the software itself is called 'MyInvoices and Estimates'. This software program is not flexible enough for editing and custmizing and so i am finding it hard to accomplish the tasks that the employer gives me. He hasn't used this software before and so he doesn't know how hard it is to get what he wants.

Are there any other better software programs tat are more flexible for customizing and editing? trying to keep the cost low and the user friendliness high.

Those of you that are self employed, what softwares do you use?
i don't think my employer would want the custom tailored system, he jsut wants a easy basic software that has what he wants.

Thanks in advance

true, but you have to create al the stuff which makes it way way too much time. thought of MS access and excel but just creating forms and reports are gonna take time.

Microsoft.com has the required templates you would need for proper invoicing. I use them all the time.

You can also look into http://www.inventorysoft.com/
I hear they are pretty good.

P.S. tell your employer not to skimp on inventory control as this is how most business fail to thrive.

create a blank invoice and save it.

when you need to bill out an invoice, open it up, input what you need and your done.

look into the templates, it doesnt get any easier then this.
