Business Challenge:

Shola is a Cerified QuickBooks ProAdvisor, and a Certified Financial Software Consultant to many financial software suites and he not only uses QuickBooks for his accounting business but also provides small business consulting services to clients who use QuickBooks. He has used QuickBooks for his business since 1996.

Document management for QuickBooks is an important issue for Accountiviti since the majority of Shola’s clients are using QuickBooks and documents from each client for each QuickBooks transaction need to be kept tracked of. Prior to using a QuickBooks document management system, Accountiviti leverage an on-line storage service called CyberCabinet with their on-line portal and their clients can file their documents over the internet and exchange files with their CPAs. The downside is that whenever clients or CPAs need a document, they need to remember which files are related to certain transactions and upload/download to/from CyberCabinet. Although this solution provides a way to store documents but there is no integration between CyberCabinet and QuickBooks. If a CPA wants to find documents related to certain transactions, they have to keep track of this document-transaction relationship in order to look it up in the CyberCabinet .

Besides, CyberCabinet only supported limited file types such as pdf, office documents and QuickBooks Company files. Nevertheless, CPA may want to keep document in other format such as image file of check which client gave to them.
