FM Books Connector Online Edition Now Server-Side Compatible for Windows and Mac
San Diego, CA - January 12, 2017 - Productive Computing, Inc., a Platinum member of the FileMaker® Business Alliance, is proud to announce the release of its first server-side plug-in - FM Books Connector Online Edition version 220.127.116.11. This plug-in is now compatible with FileMaker Server 14 -15 for Mac and Windows.
The FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in connects FileMaker with QuickBooks Online and enables users to push and pull contacts, invoices, and other sales transaction information. A FileMaker and QuickBooks integration eliminates double entry and provides financial data to staff without multiple people accessing sensitive QuickBooks company files.
Version 18.104.22.168 includes an updated demo file to introduce and familiarize users and developers with the new server functionality, a new video for step-by-step instructions on how to install the plug-in on the server, and updated documentation for easier development and integration.
"We embarked on a mission to create a QuickBooks Online server-side plug-in so that users could streamline deployment and explore truly mobile options. By utilizing the server-side plug-in to handle the processing, users on FileMaker Pro, iPad, iPhone or WebDirect have the ability to shuffle data back and forth to QuickBooks Online without having to install a client-side plug-in." Marc Larochelle, Chief Executive Officer, Productive Computing, Inc.
With a Server license, multiple users can now post to QuickBooks Online from a desktop with FileMaker client, from a web browser using FileMaker WebDirect, and from an iPhone or iPad via FileMaker Go. The server-side plug-in allows users to capitalize on the mobility of QuickBooks Online. Sales staff, bookkeepers, or any employee can push a transaction from FileMaker to QuickBooks from the office, on the road, or working remotely from home.
Additional benefits of a Server license include:
- Added convenience of only needing to install the Server plug-in on one machine
- Unlimited users on one server
- Ability to connect with multiple QuickBooks Online company files
- Faster processing times than client-side plug-ins
The FM Books Connector Online Edition plug-in is available for an annual rate of $200 for a single user (client side) and $450 for a Server license. The Server license comes with a free copy of the single user (client) plug-in to allow for development and authentication with QuickBooks online.
