Nearly every occupation in the world has witnessed reorientation within its ranks after the advent of intricate software and applications. The field of Accounting is no different.
No longer are accountants sitting in their little cubicles hunched over calculators and record books. They might be analyzing millions of data entries to understand why their company’s financial reports don’t add up. Or, they might be in a meeting, presenting vital facts which could potentially lead their firm into the veracious financial direction.
Furthermore, CRM applications are being widely adopted by businesses because of their ability to make jobs easier for every department of a business entity. Many leading business ventures such as Audi AG have deployed SugarCRM for their management needs. From Sales and Marketing to Customer Service and Human Resources, CRM allows different departments to collaborate on various business processes and the Accounts department is no exception.
That’s why today we’re here to make your accounting even more productive with our brand-new product! We will make crunching numbers a lot easier because this will not only enhance your accounting process but will also make a big difference in your management capabilities. Hence, to meet the growing demand of accounting software integration with CRM, the talented Certified Sugar development team at Rolustech decided to develop ready-to-use solutions for all your accounting needs. In this blog entry, we will explore the features of our most popular Accounting plugins for Sugar.
Sugar Integration with QuickBooks
With over 1.4 million online subscribers, QuickBooks is the most popular Accounting software worldwide. Its collaborative tools and advanced reporting features make it an integral tool for modern day Accounting. After integrating QuickBooks for a number of clients, we decided to pick the most popular QuickBooks features sought by our clients and roll them into a powerful plugin now known as RT QuickBooks.
What is RT QuickBooks?
This is basically a SugarCRM plugin that uses the unification of QuickBooks with Sugar to untangle the Accounting, Sales and Management requirements for your business venture. Being the perfect tweak of integration, this plugin will allow data migration from your Sugar to QuickBooks, hence, paving the way for swift business payments, optimized payroll functions and easy payment of bills.
Why Use This SugarCRM and QuickBooks Integration?
While every other firm will be out trying to identify the bugs in their Accounting records, RT QuickBooks will do the job for you. RT QuickBooks eliminates the need of repetitive data entry and manual sync, allowing your team to focus on more important work instead.
This SugarCRM Integration with QuickBooks will enable both applications to run simultaneously, hence, allowing swift and robust sharing of information between the two, saving important time and costs. Your firm will be using the crucial features of both applications such as synchronization of customers, inventory management, sales invoice and viewing financial history. It will, also, be able to achieve a panoramic view of its customers with just this one QuickBooks integration with their Sugar.
(RT Quickbooks is compatible with all Sugar versions up to Sugar 9)
The SugarCRM and QuickBooks Connection: RT QuickBooks Demo
RT QuickBooks unites your Sugar with QuickBooks bi-directionally to facilitate swift business payments, payroll functions and billing features. With its powerful features, RT QuickBooks ensures that your Accounting team will never have to sync data manually or enter it repetitively. It automatically synchronizes inventories, sales invoices, customer payments and financial history, giving you a bird’s-eye view of all your finances.
What Are the Features of RT QuickBooks
View Sync History
With SugarCRM and QuickBooks integration, your firm will be able to track the sync history using the help of business logs and entries. Your venture will become capable of rectifying financial contradictions using error messages found in the QuickBooks log files.
Sync on Demand
This integration will allow your venture to sync a record promptly to QuickBooks whenever and wherever it is desired. This will significantly diminish the wait process that is conventionally required. Allow your Sugar and QuickBooks to pool their resources. What will be the result? An immediate synchronization of data at record and module levels.
Cases of double data entry have haunted accountants for a long time. Integration of Sugar and QuickBooks might just be the solution. This integration will allow you to designate either Sugar or QuickBooks as a parent or child station. If the data and entries have witnessed a change simultaneously; the information available on parent station will counter and veto the information present at child station, thereby, providing a resolution without any conflict.
Bidirectional Customers Synchronization
Save valuable time and money through prevention of repetitive data entry by syncing the existing customer base with the new customers in QuickBooks and Sugar using RT QuickBooks. This plugin will automatically synchronize QuickBooks customers and Sugar Accounts bidirectionally and will keep the two forums up-to-date. Thus, this would mean that if a new customer appears, it won’t matter if his entry is made in Sugar or in QuickBooks. Since both are amalgamated, entry into either one will update the other.
Assign Teams for Sync Processes
Assign either custom or global teams to the records synchronized from QuickBooks to Sugar using RT QuickBooks.
RT QuickBooks gives you complete control over your scheduling needs. Not only can you control how frequently you need Sugar and QuickBooks to sync, you can also choose what to sync and what to leave out.
Other Features Include
- Map Sugar fields and modules onto QuickBooks and vice versa
- Categorize transactions using different classes and add tax-value to manage tax payments
Sugar Integration with Xero
While QuickBooks is the most popular online accounting software, Xero is quickly becoming the preferred choice for many small businesses. With nearly a million subscribers, Xero’s growth prompted us to develop another plugin for small businesses: RT Xero – SugarCRM Integration with Xero.
RT Xero Features
RT Xero connects Sugar with Xero, synchronizing your accounting data with the Sugar instance. This, in turn, allows streamlining of business processes while also giving you detailed insights into your company’s finances.
