Power up your QuickBooks Online Accounting Software with essential Odoo Business suite of Apps by leveraging our QuickBooks-Odoo Connector App

The current accounting infrastructure

QuickBooks Online is a very popular cloud-based accounting software system for small startups as well as multinational companies. People use this because of its intuitive design, easier to use, and better to manage. No doubt QuickBooks online is a good accounting software, but in today’s competitive world, an Accounting software alone does not meet the complex and demanding requirements of business. Hence such systems need to be integrated with a reliable and high performance ERP system such as Odoo to effectively solve business problems.


The problem

We were working with an enterprise grade customer who was already using QuickBooks Online. They were satisfied with it for all their accounting needs. But they wanted to have a more feature- rich, robust, and powerful enterprise system which included a comprehensive yet specific suite of features. These included Inventory and Warehouse Management, CRM, HRM, Helpdesk, Project Management, and other custom tools required to run their business.


The solution

At Pragmatic, we worked with the client to enable a seamless, power-packed, and highly customized integration of QuickBooks Online with Odoo. It allows extending QBO functionality to have other very useful enterprise apps such as CRM, HRM, Helpdesk, Purchase, Project Management, POS, eCommerce and many others.


QuickBooks Online – Odoo Connector App Features

This connector will help user to import export following objects.

Import / Export Master Data Customers, Suppliers, Accounts, Tax, Products, Payments

With this integration, all accounting information from various technology applications like Inventory and Warehouse Management, CRM, HRM, Helpdesk, Project Management could be easily transitioned back and forth within QBO.

This delivered the following high value outcomes

  1. It reduced dependency on manual entry of data
  2. Saved time for duplicate record keeping from external systems to QBO
  3. Substantially bought down human errors
  4. Quicker insight generation on organization-wide finances possible as compared to siloed approach of the external systems
