QuickBooks Integrations Every Controller Should Know About


Controllers play a crucial role in ensuring the financial compliance of businesses, and work at providing senior management with key insights in terms of business budgeting, forecasting and risk analysis. To minimize the risk of errors when it comes to preparing financials, controllers implement various automation technologies and accounting software to perform accounting and bookkeeping functions that make records more reliable and save time.

Software integrations that make accounting processes more efficient

QuickBooks is an accounting software typically used by small and medium businesses. While the software can perform a number of accounting functions to manage the finances of your business, integrating QuickBooks with other software can offer businesses a more efficient experience, especially when it comes to keeping a handle on some of the tedious tasks that come with recordkeeping. Implementing expense management software that can be integrated with QuickBooks for example, will aid your business to manage expenses more seamlessly. This, along with other software integrations can give you better financial visibility while reducing the risk of errors and saving your business time.

Salesforce: This client relationship management software helps businesses better handle sales and marketing. Having Salesforce integrates with QuickBooks allows for financial reports to be updated as sales happen, which reduces the risk that comes with manual entries.

Shopify: If your business uses Shopify to sell products online, integrating it with QuickBooks can provide a more efficient and streamlined experience as the integration not only aids accurate inventory tracking and reporting, but also simplifies the tax preparation process. Shopify automatically generates tax liability reports which can be cross-checked with your accounting software with the right integration.

Expensify: Expensify and QuickBooks integrations work to simplify accounting processes as it automates income and expense data to your financial records via the integration. This allows for your financial reporting to be updated as transactions take place within your business.

PayPal and Stripe: If your business accepts online payments then doing a PayPal or Stripe integration with QuickBooks will automatically record and categorize transactions in your ledger, aid you to manage your cash flow more effectively and implement a system to avoid bad debts.

TSheets: TSheets is a time-tracking software designed to help businesses manage their workforce more efficiently. It integrates with QuickBooks to help track employee time, payroll and employee-related taxes more efficiently.
