Feature: Accounting Integration
One of the greatest frustrations that operators face when it comes to tracking their financial position with spreadsheets is that they have to duplicate their work to enter the very same data into their accounting software. The Prime Cost Wizard was developed with one of its goals being - ELIMINATE DUPLICATE DATA ENTRY.
That is exactly why we spent a lot of time developing the framework so that all sales and purchase information can be exported to a variety of accounting formats, including QuickBooksÔ, PeachtreeÔ and standard comma-separated file formats (other export options available for multi-unit operators).
But the real value of our accounting export procedure is HOW SIMPLE we designed it to use - and NO POLLING required..
Simple Two-Step Export Process
Step 1 - Mark the transactions to be exported
Only designated users that have been assigned the rights to approve exports have access to accounting export menu. These users can access this from any Internet connection, on or off site. This allows the operator to limit access for approving exports to a specific manager or bookkeeper or both. The screenshot below shows they have the option to hand-select individual sales and purchase transactions, or to mark an entire list of transactions for export.
Step 2 - Import the approved transactions
Once the transactions have been approved, your bookkeeper or accounting service can then import directly into QuickBooksÔ, (Desktop versions
and QuickBooks Online) or download the file for import using the PeachtreeÔ file import templates, or download the comma-separated export files.
