Can I Use QuickBooks Online for my Auto Recycling Facility?
If you are an Auto Recycler who has been told that QuickBooks Online won’t work for your Auto Recycling Facility, you may want to take a second look. There are still quite a few accounting professionals who tend to think of QuickBooks Online in the same way as they view the QuickBooks Desktop software package. To truly understand QuickBooks Online you must understand the idea of SaaS, cloud computing, and app integrations.
So, what is SaaS?
SaaS stands for Software as a Service. QuickBooks Online is designed to be run from the cloud and one of the major benefits of this cloud computing model is the ability for QuickBooks Online to integrate seamlessly with other cloud-based apps. Cloud computing and SaaS programs – “apps” – are really the future of small business management.
Is There A Truly Integrated Platform for Auto Recyclers
Although none of the Industry Specific Yard Management Programs, such as Hollander, Pinnacle, and Checkmate currently integrate with QuickBooks Online, we can manually transfer the balances of your Accounts Receivable and Sales Reporting to QuickBooks Online with a simple journal entry. Your accounting still has the ‘back end’ system of QuickBooks Online for maintaining non-project related items such as accounts payable, payroll and bank reconciliations. The beauty of app integrations with other cloud-based software is that now you can take your accounting software – QuickBooks Online – and link it directly to other programs you may already have – for instance PayPal, Square, Shopify, and over 400 other popular business apps. Once you sync your apps with QuickBooks, data will be streamlined, helping you spend more time running your Yard become more productive.
