Want more reasons to check out FM Books Connector? Well, we’ve got ‘em. The plug-in allows you to PUSH AND PULL:

Customer Records: By only needing to create a single entry versus different departments making multiple entries, you can save yourself and your colleagues precious key strokes.

Invoices: Staff can create, send, modify, and accept payments regardless of which department they work.

Payment and Balances: Everyone has quick access to view customer balances. No more of this “the check’s in the mail” nonsense.

Inventory: Easily keep the books balanced between accounting and sales.

Timer Entries: Effectively eliminate double entry, reduce labor time, and ensure accuracy.
FM Books Connector also allows for access to additional modules including:
– Chart of Accounts
– Bills and Checks
– Lists
– Items and Inventory

– Deposits
– Employees
– Reports
– Sales Orders and Purchase Orders
– Templates, Vendors, and General Journal Entries
You get the point
We’re currently testing FM Books Connector’s compatibility with QuickBooks 2016 UK and Canadian editions, as well as Australia’s Reckon Accounts 2015. However, we were just too excited to wait, so stay posted for further compatibility updates.

Check out the newest version of FM Books Connector at www.fmbooksconnector.com.

Pssst! If you’re looking for an easy way to integrate FM Books Connector with your system or looking for a new CRM system all together, make sure you check out our CORE4 Solution.

A Word of Caution:
Successful integration of FileMaker plug-ins require the creation of integration scripts within your FileMaker solution.

Translation: intermediate to advanced experience with FileMaker Pro, especially in the areas of scripting and calculations, is necessary to integrate this plug-in.

Take a look at our overview videos, demo scripts, and product documentation to see if you have what it takes. Don’t worry if you don’t – we can do it for you!

We’re always here to help! We also offer professional plug-in integration support. If you’d like the pros who created FM Books Connector to assist you with integrating the plug-in into your system, contact sales@productivecomputing.com or call 760-510-1200.

PCI Announces New FM Books Connector Mac Template

November 6th, 2014

SAN DIEGO, CA – November 6, 2014 – Productive Computing, Inc. announces the release of a free utility tool for Macintosh-based developers that works hand in hand with the FM Books Connector for Windows.  The FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in is a template file that allows Mac FileMaker developers to write scripts from a Mac operating system to be used with the Windows based FM Books Connector plug-in and Intuit’s QuickBooks desktop applications.  All functions available to the FM Books Connector plug-in for Windows are also available in the FM Books Connector Mac Template.  However, one important difference is that the Mac Template has zero functionality implemented within it.  The FM Books Connector Mac Template will not perform any actual data transfer between FileMaker Pro and QuickBooks desktop.

The intent of the FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in is to provide a useful tool for Mac-focused developers and integrators of the FM Books Connector plug-in to carry out their development from their preferred environment.  For example, a Mac-based FileMaker developer could use the FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in to write up an entire script for pushing a found set of customer records to QuickBooks on their OS X development machine, and then access the same script in FileMaker Pro on a Windows machine and perform testing and refinement to ensure the script is functioning as intended without the need to rewrite the entire script or comment/uncomment every plug-in function call.

The FM Books Connector Mac Template plug-in requires no registration, no extra installations or required resources.  To get started, simply download the FM Books Connector Mac Template from the link below.  Unzip the bundle and install the “PCFMBooksConnector.fmplugin” file into the FileMaker Pro Extensions folder, or install using the “Install Plug-in” script step (available in FileMaker Pro 12 and newer) and the plug-in is set up and ready for scripting.

For more information regarding FM Books Connector for Windows please visit:  http://www.fmbooksconnector.com/

Important Note:  The FM Books Connector Mac Template is for development purposes only.  For full functionality to communicate directly with QuickBooks for Windows the full version of the FMBooks Connector plug-in is required.  Unfortunately, communication of any kind to the Macintosh version of QuickBooks is not available since Intuit does not have a Mac compatible Software Development Kit (SDK).
