What if you are using QuickBooks Enterprise with Advanced Inventory and/or Advanced Pricing?

Moving to QuickBooks Online (aka QBO) may not work for your business. QBO does not have those features nor the access controls required. Let Order Time bridge the gap between accounting and operations. It offers the advanced inventory and order management features (plus a lot more) contained in QuickBooks Enterprise.

Order Time will import your List (such a Customers, Vendors and Payment Method) from QuickBooks. From then on there is bi-directional synchronization. You can add, edit and delete Lists in either program.

What if you don’t want to have Inventory Parts or Assemblies in QuickBooks? That’s not a problem! Order Time will optionally post journal entries to reflect costing in QuickBooks.  

Order Time operates as your central hub taking care of the sales, purchasing and production cycles plus warehouse functions. Don't bother creating invoices or bills directly in QuickBooks. Make these transactions within Order Time and sync them to QuickBooks, it's that easy!
