Quickbooks is the leading accounting package for small businesses, but using it can be a challenge. It is a powerful tool that can be used by a small business owner for basic management, while giving your CPA access to a full general ledger. While this classic application can feel a little long in the tooth, it’s feature rich, letting it compete with the newer, cloud offerings. With the new App Marketplace and APIs, cloud based offerings can integration with the desktop application through Intuit’s cloud based service, giving you a hybrid system. Of source, this hybrid solution requires Quickbooks to be on an Internet connected computer.
Bette Hochberger is fully certified in both Quickbooks and Quickbooks Online. If you want the benefits of the cloud without giving up the power of Quickbooks Desktop, I work with Swizznet, a premier partner of Intuit for hosting Quickbooks in its many integration.
Marketplace of Apps
Intuit has developed various robust APIs and a marketplace for promoting applications that work with their software suites. Setting up the integration to tie in with your chart of accounts can be tricky, and a reason to work with a CPA Firm that offers a full range of accounting and integration services. Choosing the right platform can be tricky, especially for small firms without in-house IT teams. We’ll help your make the right choices, configure the chart of accounts, and tie your new systems back to your Quickbooks based general ledger.
