How Integration Works

BillQuick and QuickBooks helps professional firms get tasks done. Smooth, intelligent and efficient.

And you fully control the integration, deciding where tasks are done, what data synchronizes, and when it synchronizes. With NED2 embedded in your solution, key benefits include:

  • Data accuracy
  • No time-consuming duplicate manual entry
  • Increased control over your bottom line

Together, BillQuick with QuickBooks means you are Working Smarter, Not Harder.

Hours recorded in transfer to QuickBooks -- billable, non-billable, vacation, holiday, sick and administrative. You can assign payroll accounts to each type of time. Typically, users transfers hours to QuickBooks only when needed to process payroll.

Capturing time is more robust, flexible and intelligent using BillQuick, Web Suite (PC, laptop, smart phone), BillQuick Online or Microsoft Outlook. For example, BillQuick automatically applies a default employee (or consultant) bill rate OR a special project bill rate (based on the employee, activity or job classification). Business rules automatically check for over-contract work, overtime, comp time, and more. Time entries flow to invoices regardless of the billing arrangement. Time is the foundation of job cost, budget comparison, project management, billing, profitability, realization, utilization and other analysis reports.

Default unit costs, markups, reimbursable status and billable status carry to the Expense Log screen to minimize effort and save time. Expenses flow to job cost, budget comparison, project management, billing, profitability, and other analysis reports.
