“We went through 6 CRM’s and 3 accounting programs before we finally found Method. I couldn’t be happier. It’s connectivity with QuickBooks seems like the only way things should be done and they are literally the only people doing it. Now my salesmen can write their sales orders, linking the accounts with the SO’s in the CRM and it auto populates the QBE for me. It is seamless.”

How does Method’s Sync with QuickBooks Desktop Work?

The Method Integration Engine is installed on the same system as QuickBooks Desktop and where the QuickBooks file is located, which allows Method:CRM to sync with your QuickBooks file. In addition to the Sync Engine, Method:CRM installs the Listener that captures data changes as they happen in real-time in QuickBooks and sends them to Method:CRM.

Data syncs between QuickBooks and Method:CRM through four mechanisms:

  1. Push

    Push is initiated in Method:CRM, which takes real-time data changes (adds, updates or deletes) in Method:CRM and sends them to QuickBooks. Data changes are reflected in real-time in QuickBooks.

  2. Pull

    Pull is initiated in QuickBooks in which Method:CRM “pulls” real-time data changes (adds, updates or deletes) in QuickBooks, via the Method:CRM Listener, and sends them to Method:CRM. Data changes are reflected in near real-time in Method:CRM (assuming both systems are online and connected).

  3. Changes-Only Sync

    Changes-only Sync is a two-way process that typically runs every 15 – 60 minutes and identifies any changes (adds, updates, deletes) in QuickBooks or Method:CRM that have been made since the last time Sync ran, and have not yet been Synced.

  4. Full Sync

    Full Sync is a two-way process that typically runs once a day and is responsible for gathering all objects in both QuickBooks and Method:CRM and comparing them to ensure both systems are synchronized.

These four sync mechanisms, Push, Pull, Changes-only sync and Full sync, allow Method:CRM to sync one-to-one with QuickBooks fields, giving you a single powerful view of your contacts, transactions, and sales data.
