FileMaker is a great platform for building custom data driven applications. But should you use it to build your own custom Accounting solution? Probably not. In this FileMaker Accounting Integration webinar hosted by FileMaker Inc, we cover the benefits of building custom business applications with FileMaker and integrating them with Quickbooks Online.

Custom Software is a Right

We believe that every company or organization has the right to software that is specifically tailored to their needs. Manual or paper-based processes can only get you so far.  They just don’t scale and they are error prone. Using software that you can’t modify is even worse.  You are stuck using somebody else’s idea of how your business should work. Where is the sense in that?

If you have a custom software system you can change, you can adapt and scale. You can enshrine your business rules and best practices into the software so that your staff does it right by default.

QuickBooks Online
