Christopher Prascus, an Air Force veteran, knows how difficult it is to be far away from home. You miss birthday and holidays, and the chance to connect with your loved ones on special occasions. During his deployment, some of his best memories came from the care packages with beef jerkies his family sent him.
When Chris returned home in 2016, he knew that he could make a far superior jerky by combining his family recipes originally for barbeque and using premium quality beef. Chris’ family recipes were handed down from generation to generation using all-natural signature spices combined with a slow smoke for a tasty finish. Soldier Boy Beef Jerky now prides themselves on having flavorful beef jerkies that are easy to chew and gives soldiers something to look forward to when they receive their care packages.
Back in 2016 Chris worked as a bartender. During his free time, he experimented with different family recipes for creating a tasty and easy-to-chew beef jerky. In the evenings he offered his patrons at the bar samples of the beef jerkies, and with their feedback, he perfected his recipe. With the recipe in hand, the next step was to start his business and start selling!
During a ski tip with his wife, Chris met one of her high school friends, Matt Tamasy. Tamasy had been working in business development for years. When Matt heard about Chris’ idea, he knew it was the right opportunity for him.
In addition to selling at festivals and other live events, Matt and Chris also sell beef jerkies online using Shopify and ShipStation. As their business grew, they realized that manually entering data into QuickBooks was taking time away from growing their business.
To automate data entry, Matt initially tried a Zapier integration, but he couldn’t map the fields to QuickBooks the way he wanted to. After online searching, Matt came across Connex, which helped him to sync both Shopify and ShipStation to QuickBooks Online.
“What I like about Connex is that it just works,” Matt said. “Previously when we were doing events or festivals, we would use Shopify POS, then manually update the books after events. Now with Connex, it happens seamlessly as sales are happening in Shopify. Our books and inventory are updated.”
Business for Soldier Boy Beef Jerky is growing very rapidly, and Connex is helping them to sync their transactions and invoices without having to do manual accounting. Prior to using Connex, Soldier Boy Beef Jerky was using ShipStation to keep track of their inventory. Now, they can use QuickBooks as the source for financial, orders and inventory. In addition, now they can get an accurate calculation for cost of goods sold (COGS), making it easier to implement profitable business strategies.
“We have three systems to run our business, and a fourth system is coming soon. Connex is providing the means for all the systems to talk to each other. You are business and time-strapped, you don’t have the time to set up products, inventory, and customers. Not having a system like Connex is not efficient. You need to work smarter and not harder if you’re a small business.”
