The Best of Both Worlds: QuickBooks Integrated with ACT!

ACT! and QuickBooks have long been front runners in the contact management and accounting software race. On Monday, September 12, Sage Software announced the addition of ACT!Link for use with QuickBooks to its ACT! by Sage 2006 contact and customer management product family.

“As a market-leading business solution, it is important for ACT! to integrate with many common applications,” noted Joe Bergera, ACT! senior vice president and general manager for Sage Software. “By delivering this integration, QuickBooks users have the capability to quickly view and perform accounting tasks alongside key ACT! contact and customer data to make more insightful, high-impact decisions.”

ACT! 2006, the latest version of the Number One selling contact and customer management tool, was released last week. ACT! Link for use with QuickBooks is part of the expanded accounting link integrations designed for ACT! 2006 and ACT! by Sage Premium for Workgroups 2006, providing users with real-time access to accounts receivable and payable information within ACT! and eliminating the need for duplicate data entry in multiple applications.

Users can now link ACT! 2006 with QuickBooks Professional or Premier databases to view the history and details of every customer and vendor transaction including estimates, invoices, sales and payments. Accounting information can be filtered by date range or transaction type. New customer or vendor records can be created in QuickBooks using an existing ACT! contact record, automatically establishing an easy access link between each record. Two-way synchronization allows customer and vendor information to be updated from ACT! or QuickBooks. In addition, activities, such as scheduling calls or contacts with customers regarding past dues invoices can be scheduled in ACT! but based on information in QuickBooks.

ACT! link for use with QuickBooks 2006 is available from Sage Software online or by calling 888-ACT-2006.
