ShalomCloud now offers QuickBooks Desktop integration.
For some time, we have supported near-real-time integration with QuickBooks Online. By that, we mean that, within minutes of posting financial activity in ShalomCloud, that activity appears in QuickBooks Online. This is a cloud-to-cloud integration, and one that seems to follow Intuit’s implied direction. (For a comparison between QB Online and QB Desktop, please see this chart.)
However, in talking to customers and prospective customers, we have learned that QuickBooks desktop maintains its popularity. Therefore, we developed the Desktop integration.
Basically, there are three steps involved.
Step 1–export your chart of accounts from QB Desktop, and import that chart into ShalomCloud.
Step 2–map your ShalomCloud categories into the QuickBooks chart. Then, after going about your normal financial posting,
Step 3–create the extract to QuickBooks Desktop.
The explanation above appears daunting–but it’s actually a simple process, as illustrated in this video, which walks through all the steps. In reality, it may take some careful thought to get the mapping just right. After that, though, the normal, day-to-day process just involves one link–to export financial activity from ShalomCloud–followed by importing that file into QB Desktop.
