QUICKBOOKS PROGRAMMING

Push The Limits Of QuickBooks

Hire one of our QuickBooks programming experts to help solve critical business needs by extending and integrating QuickBooks customization beyond the box. This means more time spent using QuickBooks, rather than converting to expensive, over-developed accounting software packages, and a tailored solution that perfectly fits your business needs. We help our clients keep using QuickBooks as their business continues to grow.

When working with QuickBooks programming experts, we work directly with the database via the Intuit SDK using .Net development tools (C#/C++/VB.net). We are also well versed in PHP/Java/Javascript as well as most common DBMS (SQL). Some examples include:

We have worked with Alisha Raesz at Fourlane for over 2 years. She has helped us navigate building new QB files for two companies and has been a lifesaver is keeping our QB file up to date. We consider Alisha a part of the CR team. She is extremely professional and always willing to teach us how to make changes and updates the correct way. We can't thank Alisha and the entire Fourlane team enough for helping us organize our company so we can grow! I highly recommend Alisha if you are in need of an experienced Quickbooks professional.

Our company has worked several times with Fourlane, and we could not be happier! They are both responsive and professional, and Fourlane constantly impresses with both the quality of the reports they produces for us, as well as the quick timelines he's able to adhere to (and beat at times!) If it was possible to give more than 5 stars I would, because that's just how satisfied we have been working with Fourlane.

I've been through a few different software conversions. Each of them was stressful and difficult. Fourlane made our conversion from Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains to Quickbooks Online as simple and painless as I've experienced. Every aspect was top notch. Kaylin Leland was awesome and very patient with us as our staff had varying levels or prior experience with QB. Trisha Thomas managed the project exceptionally well and was checking in frequently to make sure we were happy with every aspect. I would HIGHLY recommend Fourlane for anyone looking to transition to Quickbooks.

FAQs About QuickBooks Customization & Programming

The QuickBooks customization process involves tailoring the software to meet your unique and specific business needs. Customization can include creating custom reports and forms or adding features that don’t come in the general QuickBooks package.

Your business needs QuickBooks customization because it can make QuickBooks more convenient for you and your business. As you adapt the software to your industry needs, workflow, personal preferences, or reporting needs, it can address unique requirements, streamline processes, and make your entire operation more efficient.

The possible customizations in QuickBooks include:

  • Creating custom reports
  • Adding new fields to existing forms
  • Integrating third-party applications you use
  • Automating tasks
  • Developing specialized features for your business

No. The more basic forms of QuickBooks customization don’t require QuickBooks programming skills or previous experience, thanks to QuickBooks’ built-in tools. If you need more complex customizations, however, it’s best to work with a professional consultant or QuickBooks expert who can walk you through the process.

Yes. You can customize QuickBooks online with the QuickBooks Online API. You can also integrate this with your other applications; however, we recommend hiring a consultant to help you.

Yes. You can have your QuickBooks account integrated with many third-party applications. These applications include CRM systems, e-commerce platforms, and inventory management systems. Incorporating these apps will streamline data sharing, making your system accurate and more efficient.

To ensure security when customizing QuickBooks, take the necessary precautions. Don’t use a public computer and use one with antivirus software installed. It’s also a good practice to work with experienced consultants who know how to minimize security risks.

The exact cost of QuickBooks programming and customization will depend on the complexity of the project and who you hire as a programmer. The only way to get an accurate estimate is to reach out to a developer and get an individual quote for you and your business.

How long a QuickBooks customization project takes to complete will vary based on how complex the project is, the business size and scope, and the experience level of your consultant. A basic add-on could take a couple of weeks, while a more complex app built from scratch may take months.

No. However, it’s usually a good idea to have ongoing contact with the person who manages your customization process. That way, if you have any further changes you want to make, have any issues, or need to update your system as your business evolves, you can get immediate assistance.

Yes. Most customizations can be reversed or modified if necessary. This is why it’s important, however, to work with experienced consultation professionals who have records of what customizations were made so they can easily revert the changes.
