Enhancements to 123sync™ Now Available

123sync Standard Edition Version 1.1 Adds Products, Employee and Time Tracking Features

SEATTLE, WA – September 1, 2008 – Accounting integration experts, SolutionMakers, Inc., are pleased to announce the release of the first enhancement to their QuickBooks accounting integration tool, 123sync Standard Edition. The FileMaker-based application was initially launched at the FileMaker Developer Convention in Phoenix last July and features the ability to integrate a majority of QuickBooks modules with FileMaker, SQL, MySQL and Oracle based business solutions “in as little as an hour”. The list of supported QuickBooks modules now gets a boost with the release of 123sync version 1.1. In addition to the initial set of features which included the ability to interact with vendor, job and customer data for example, users now have access to products, employee and time tracking data as well. For a complete listing of features in this release, please visit the SolutionMakers’ website at http://secure.solutionmakers.com/store/index.lasso?page=detail&category_id=1002&keyword=&skip=1.

One example of the changes users can now take advantage of can be seen with the post of an invoice to QuickBooks. 123sync will now update the QuickBooks inventory figure as sales-based inventory changes are made. For example, if Mike’s Bikes stocks 10 sets of peddles and a customer purchases one, once the transaction is recorded in Mike’s system (typically an automated process at checkout) 123sync will be ready to sync with QuickBooks to subtract one from the total. The 10 displayed in QuickBooks will now read nine.

123sync users who upgrade to version 1.1 will also be able to extract employee records from QuickBooks and add new ones as well. Should Mike wish to add Sally the Sales Clerk to his payroll, he simply enters her details into his business solution and, once synchronized with 123sync, QuickBooks will now be ready to issue Sally a paycheck.

Quite often, paychecks are driven by time worked. SolutionMakers has now added time tracking in version 1.1 as well. Should Sally log an eight hour shift, at the end of the day when Mike syncs his business solution with QuickBooks using 123sync, Sally’s time will be reported. In addition, should he later learn that Sam, the Sales Clerk, accidentally logged his time under Sally’s account, he can simply delete those hours and, upon syncing with QuickBooks, those eight hours worked will be removed and not be accounted for on Sally’s paycheck. Logging hours against jobs will also update the Job Cost features in QuickBooks.

With version 1.0 of 123sync, SolutionMakers introduced itself as a knowledgeable resource in the accounting software development community. With version 1.1, SolutionMakers takes the first step towards offering an entire suite of robust accounting integration tools that accommodate a multitude of account software packages. In the short term, look for SolutionMakers to release the 123sync for QuickBooks Enhanced Edition later this fall.
