FileMaker to QuickBooks Integration - Now Built into SeedCode Complete
November 18, 2011 in FileMaker
[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - SeedCode Complete, our unlocked starter kit for FileMaker Pro solutions, is now pre-wired for QuickBooks integration. Once this is enabled you can pull your existing customers and products from QuickBooks into FileMaker, and post your FileMaker invoices directly to QuickBooks. Best of all, we have a ton of experience integrating QuickBooks and FileMaker, so if you need this connection extended or modified, we're here to help.
We've set up the basics if sending Contacts, Jobs, Bids, Invoices, and Payments to QuickBooks, and done so in such a way that an intermediate to advanced FileMaker developer can extend this to add their own QuickBooks functionality. Of course, SeedCode is also available to help you make changes for you.
For example, out of the box SeedCode Complete will push new contacts to QuickBooks and/or link an existing FileMaker contact with an existing contact in QuickBooks, but it isn't pulling all QuickBooks contacts into FileMaker. Similarly, if you record payments in FileMaker it'll push those to QuickBooks but won't pull in payments created in QuickBooks. This can all be changed, however, by FileMaker developers.
"Complete is a great framework for starting new applications in FileMaker," says John Sindelar of SeedCode. "And this QuickBooks integration, coupled with the invoicing and optional credit card processing built-in, means developers can have a much easier time meeting their clients' expectations."
