Accounts Integration

Channel's team have developed integrations with the most popular accounting packages including Quick Books and Sage.  This integration is a classic example of how you use IT technology to drive cost out of your business by removing duplication.  Don't pay your team to do the work over and over again, use an IT system to automate this process.

Examples of Accounts integrations that can be undertaken:

  • Importing sales data into accounts system from your e-commerce shopping cart
  • Migrate customer data into your accounts package from an existing web site
  • Feed your customer data to mobile devices in support of service engineers in the field
  • Extract accounting or customer data from your accounts package for use in related business systems
  • Use accounts customer data in targeted email marketing activity
  • Trigger external programmes and processes from within the accounts environment

Bespoke development is an involved process, and requires a solutions provider with a strong track record in requirement gathering, analysis, system design and project management.  At Channel Digital we have all these.

Typical indicators that software integration could be beneficial to your business:

  1. Staff are tied up doing repetitive manual tasks rather than looking after customers
  2. The same information needs to be typed into more than one system
  3. The office is still mainly paper-based, with detailed data stored on paper forms, before being typed into your IT or accounts systems
  4. Administration systems break down when key staff are away
  5. You know you have the information somewhere, but not sure exactly where
  6. There is a lack of accurate reporting or data about the exact status of your business

    Waterfall

    With experienced project managers we often use the traditional waterfall PM model, where the specification is agreed at the start of the project, and any changes to the scope are managed and discussed as the project evolves.

  • There are a variety of ways in which you can approach an IT or web development project.  There isn't always a right or wrong answer - often it is about working with you to select the approach which will bring you the best results.  To summarise our approach:

    1. If there is a pre-existing data integration or solution we would consider that first, as it should allow you the greatest range of functionality at an off-the-shelf price.  Sometimes you can purchase and implement an existing solution very quickly and cost effectively.
