Productive Computing, Inc. Acquires FileBooks Link Product Line from HAPPY Software, Inc.

December 18th, 2008

San Diego, CA – December 18, 2008 – Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, today announced the acquisition of the FileBooks Link plug-in product line from HAPPY Software, Inc. and the release of a newly enhanced version of the FM Books Connector plug-in.

“This acquisition and product release introduces the consolidation of the two predominant methods developers use when integrating FileMaker Pro with QuickBooks into a single plug-in. As a result, the FileBooks Link product is no longer available for sale however this new version of the FM Books Connector plug-in now offers the additional XML functionality with nearly identical function calls used with the FileBooks Link plug-in. In addition we have detailed technical documentation outlining which FM Books Connector functions correspond to which FileBooks Link functions. These extra functions and documentation were added to the FM Books Connector product in order to provide those developers who are more familiar with the FileBooks Link plug-in an easy and familiar way to use the FM Books Connector plug-in.

By combining the technology and support infrastructure of the these two leading-edge plug-ins, we will continue to drive innovations that help developers everywhere integrate FileMaker Pro with QuickBooks.” – CEO, Marc Larochelle

Existing FileBooks Link customers can continue to use the FileBooks Link plug-in licenses as they always have however no new licenses will be sold.

Under the terms of the agreement HAPPY Software, Inc. will continue supporting existing customers through February 28th of 2009. After February 28th, Productive Computing, Inc. will continue to support the product under their paid support program.

“We look forward to earning the loyalty of existing FileBooks Link customers by demonstrating our commitment to produce an excellent product that provides the best of both integration methods. In addition, we are confident that those customers who are new to using the FM Books Connector will be comforted knowing that their QuickBooks integration projects will have the full weight and strength of our phone support team and custom development staff behind them. We anticipate the transition to be smooth and this acquisition demonstrates that we are committed to having a QuickBooks plug-in for the FileMaker Pro platform that will exist for many years to come.” – CFO, Keith Larochelle

Productive Computing, Inc. has prepared an exchange program for FileBooks Link customers who have purchased a FileBooks Link plug-in license between October 1, 2008 and December 18th, 2008. Those customers who wish to exchange their FileBooks Link plug-in licenses for an FM Books Connector license will be granted a single-user license for each FileBooks Link license they purchased between those dates. Customers who would like to participate in this exchange program should send their request to sales@productivecomputing.com.

Productive Computing Releases a New Version of the FM Books Connector Plug-In for FileMaker® Pro!

November 12th, 2008

San Diego, CA – November 12, 2008 – Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker Business Alliance, announces the release of a new enhanced FM Books Connector plug-in.

The FM Books Connector plug-in allows you to exchange data between QuickBooks® and FileMaker® Pro and does not require any knowledge of XML! This new release is now compatible with QuickBooks 2008 and has the following added features.

New Features Include:
– Support for QuickBooks 2009 versions
– Compatibility to use the same type XML pass through commands as FileBooks Link
– Enhanced FileMaker demo file to be compatible with international versions of QuickBooks (Canadian, UK and Australian)
– Single plug-in to support QuickBooks international versions (Canadian, UK and Australian) 2004-2009
– Loads an XML document into memory and applies the XPath query to the document
– Allows for a filter string to filter results, and a path string to save the results
– Automatically formats most input values to values expected by QuickBooks
– Allows for path to XML file as input or direct XML as input
– Allows user to load an XMK document into the parser
– Returns the input string formatted to the desired QB format.

“Other than upgrading and verifying the plug-in’s compatibility with QuickBooks 2009, the biggest modification we have made to the FM Books Connector code is to add the same ‘pass through’ XML functionality that our competitor, FileBooks Link has. Our original intent for the plug-in was to have the plug-in write all the necessary XML code which makes it easier for the developer to integrate FileMaker with QuickBooks. However, there was enough interest from the developer community to have the additional flexibility to simply use the plug-in to pass through XML code directly to the QuickBooks application and use such XML tools as XPATH when developing that we decided to include this functionality on this release.

Now FM Books Connector developers can connect their FileMaker Pro solutions to QuickBooks either with or without writing XML. The FM Books Connector plug-in is truly the best of both worlds.” – CFO, Keith Larochelle

Single user price is $179.95 and please note if you already own FM Books Connector you can download this latest version and install for FREE to take advantage of the new features.
