FM Books Connector 64-bit Has Arrived

September 29th, 2016

FM Books Connector V9 is now available. Our big news with this release, what we’re most excited about, is that this plug-in is now FileMaker 64-bit compatible!

Since its debut 10 years ago, the FM Books Connector has been a 32-bit plug-in working with the QuickBooks 32-bit application. When FileMaker introduced its 64-bit technology, we began investing a significant amount of our R&D resources into making our entire suite of plug-ins and solutions 64-bit compatible. It was important to us that our customers were able to take full advantage of the performance enhancements available with the FileMaker 64-bit architecture.

While QuickBooks is still a 32-bit application, we have redesigned the connection conduit in the FM Books Connector plug-in to allow for communication with FileMaker 64-bit.

Though process speeds depend upon the environment that you are running your FileMaker solution in, during internal testing we noticed a significant improvement in processing times. The 64-bit plug-in pushed customers up to 63% faster and pushed invoices 43% faster than the 32-bit plug-in.

Other updates for FM Books Connector V 9 include:
– Added compatibility for QuickBooks 2017 Pro, Premier, and Enterprise US editions
– Added compatibility for FileMaker 64-bit
– Created MSI installer package for easier installation
– Updated Developer’s Guide
– Updated Demo file
– Verified compatibility with FileMaker® Pro 13-15 for Windows (32-bit) and FileMaker Pro 14-15 for Windows (64-bit)

A typical FileMaker to QuickBooks integration enables you to push customer data and related invoices into QuickBooks with the click of a button. The FM Books Connector also allows you to perform vendor or purchase order data exchanges, customer balance queries, time sheet imports, shopping cart orders, general journal transaction, and more.

The FM Books Connector plug-in makes data exchange easy. It seamlessly pushes information to and from your FileMaker solution and QuickBooks file, eliminating time consuming double entry and costly data entry errors, all while maintaining the security and privacy of your vital financial information.
