Because of the character of the glass industry, one being
where receivables can be extended for several months (depending
upon the insurance company or if there are any disputes!),
we recommend using QuickBooks (Intuit) for the independent
glass operations that do not employ a full-time accountant.
It compliments our glass software.
QuickBooks is an accounting application developed, sold, and maintained
by Intuit, a leader in
small business accounting applications. We have found that
besides using QuickBooks ourselves at Data Tranz, most of
the industry also uses QuickBooks for maintaining their own
companies. We integrate with QuickBooks by exporting a file
for import. There are some initial details that may need to
be addressed with setup (such as having short tax group names),
but the import feature is a great feature for maintaining
accounting information in a widely accepted accounting application.
We recommend utilizing QuickBooks for shops with annual revenues
up to a few million dollars, depending upon the amount of transactions
and active accounts.
