Looking for OpenBOM – Quickbooks integration Beta Users

I’m thrilled to share that first OpenBOM integration with accounting package is now available. You can integrate between OpenBOM and Quickbooks Online. 

Obvious question why do you need it and what are benefits? The internal process of a small and medium-size manufacturing company has 2 two polar points – (1) Design; (2) Accounting. These two obviously important. Nobody can do design without CAD software. And unless you just started and each engineer is using his own credit card to purchase parts to prototype, the company will be using accounting software. 

Between these two sides, you have one giant space filled with Excel and Email hell. This is how it works. Usually, somebody pulls together a few spreadsheets with data and write a few scripts. This is the beginning of Excel-ware. The complexity is growing and companies are looking at how to solve the problem. 

At OpenBOM, we’ve seen many of these companies. Therefore, we decided to bridge these two sides. From a very early beginning, OpenBOM was capturing engineering data, turning it invaluable collaborative assets. 

Now, it is time to close the loop and bring information downstream. OpenBOM-Quickbooks integration app solves the problem. 

The following picture gives you an idea of data flow between OpenBOM and Quickbooks. 

We are looking for companies using Quickbooks to check OpenBOM -Quickbooks integration. It is in Beta status now. You can use it with any OpenBOM professional subscription to send purchase orders to Quickbooks. OpenBOM engineers will assist you in testing and establishing communication with Quickbooks. 

The following video gives you an idea of integration flow steps: 

Conclusion

The value of Bill of Materials is in downstream. As such the value of data, you manage in your company is increased if you can organize and streamline the process of moving from “design” to manufacturing and purchasing. OpenBOM- Quickbooks fills the critical gap in this downstream process. Want to try it? Please reach out support@openbom.com and we will setup it for you. 

Best, Oleg

PS. Let’s get to know each other better. If you live in the Greater Boston area, I invite you for a coffee together (coffee is on me). If not nearby, let’s have a virtual coffee session — I will figure out how to send you a real coffee.
