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.
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.
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.
