Question for ACT! by Sage users with QuickBooks - Updated

GL Computing is in the process of creating new ACT! by Sage integration link for accounting systems. We're most likely going to start with ACT! 2009 and QuickBooks 2008/09 versions unless there is a significant demand for earlier version support.

It's currently targeted for release in Q2 2009, will support international QuickBooks users and add many functions not available in other accounting links for ACT!. More info on these soon.

However, as the different countries/editions use different SDKs to access the data, not all flavours will be in the first release. We want to start with the most popular and then continue to add support for other versions as demanded.

After the QuickBooks versions are covered, we intend to also add other accounting products.

So, the question:
What versions/editions of QB would you like to see supported in the first release?
What do you use or think is popular in your area?


Please state - Country, Version, Edition.

EG: Australia, 2008/09, Enterprise

Feel free to ask any questions or make any comments on the idea or suggested features you'd like us to consider for initial or later versions.

Update: See Accounts Master!

UK, Quickbooks 2008, ACT 2009 Premium

Hi Mike, we are extremely eager to get our hands on a UK version of the QB/ACT 2009 link. We use Quickbooks 2006 because of the reported problems of QB UK 2008. However they have said these problems have been fixed, but QB2008 still won't have multi currency until the next version! But I guess if you only did a QB 2008 version of the QB/ACT 2009 link then we would definitely want to get our hands on it! So I hope it's going really well? If you want a beta site then let us know.

Any news and hope for the very deprived QB UK users for a link to Act?

GL Computing said...

Yes, we hope to have the first version in beta end of this month or early next... not sure of which QB countries or editions will be supported in the beta or initial release, but then plan is to support all counties and editions supporting the SDK.

Look for a post in this blog or the LinkedIN ACT! Fanatics Group around the end of the month

Will there be an Accounting link for QuickBooks PRO/Premier & ACT! 2010?

Will there also be a link for entering time entries from ACT calendar to QuickBooks?

Thanks!

Bluegal36,

Yes, our Accounts Master should be in beta next week. We delayed it when we decided to make it only work with ACT! 2010 because of some functions it allowed us to use.

What sort of "time entries"? Where would you want them in QB?

Mike-

Will you be creating a link for Act!2010 and Quickbooks 2007-2010 Premier US, and what data will be synched in the product and in what direction? Also, how can we obtain a copy of your link software and is there going to be a cost?

Thanks.

Vince

GL Computing said...

Vince,

The link will work with ACT! 2010. We plan to support all current country versions of Quickbooks and are seeing if we should support previous versions also.

The product is in beta and we're about to open it up for a more public beta soon.

More info on the beta will soon be available in the LinkedIN ACT! Fanatics Group.

Yes, there will be a charge

Hello,

How is the beta coming along? We're going to be upgrading our ACT! to version 10 soon but we need a link to QuickBooks to keep things running smoothly. If you need some public testers we may be interested.

USA, QB V.2008, Premier (Manufacturing/Wholesale)

What's the current status on this, expected release date? Also, what's the difference between Account Master and ABSalesData program?

Thank for working on this much-needed program!

GL Computing said...

We had delayed it from it's original planned release so we could add some pretty cool functions...

I'd rather not discuss specifics till it's ready for release... but suffice it to say some of the features are not available in any other accounting link product I've seen
