We’re excited to announce an integration with Quickbooks Online. Time wasted by businesses manually manipulating and importing payroll data into their accounting software builds up fast. Here at Check, we understand the importance of closing the loop on payroll data, and one of our goals is to make that process simpler than ever for local businesses.

Eliminate the manual work around importing payroll data

With our new Quickbooks Online integration, your customers can automatically view payroll costs in their general ledger. No more manual exporting and uploading from one platform to another.

Once customers connect their accounts, Check manages the transfer of all of the payroll data, so customers and their team can spend less time on exporting and mapping and more time on the things that move their company forward.

Connecting a Quickbooks account with Check is easy 

Check partners can either integrate with Check’s sync API or leverage a pre-built component. Either way, launching the Check Quickbooks integration is effortless, saving your engineering teams months of work.

For your customers they simply need to authorize their Quickbooks account and map the relevant categories. Check handles it from there each time they run payroll. We will even log the paper check numbers that sync between the two systems for their employees who aren’t paid through direct deposit.

In the event that a customer needs to make changes to their Quickbooks Online integration and mapped categories, we’ve made that easy, too. They can always make changes or manually push a payroll when needed.

Payroll costs are often the biggest line item for businesses, and we know how important tracking those costs is for them. With our new Quickbooks Online integration, we’re taking the first step in our journey toward investing in accounting features and integrations designed to take work off the shoulders of your customers.

Are your customers using another accounting system? We’re continuing to think ahead on how to avoid complexity for all businesses, and we plan on introducing even more accounting integrations in the future. Drop us a line to let us know what your customers use for accounting software.

The Invention of the Employee Time Clock

The employee time clock was invented by Willard Le Grand Bundy in Auburn, New York in 1888. The value of the clock was immediately obvious to employers, who had the unenviable task of monitoring the arrival and departure times of dozens or hundreds of employees every day to determine how much they should be paid at the end of each pay period. The device's major innovation over a standard clock was that it allowed for a piece of paper, or a card, to be fed into a slot, and when it hit a contact at the back of the slot, the current date and time information would be stamped onto the card.

Could payroll protect your platform during a recession?

When times get tough, businesses are forced to cut costs by eliminating services that they deem non-essential. However, payroll is not one of those services. As businesses tighten their budgets, they are less likely to cancel their payroll service because it’s critical for any business to offer timely and accurate payments to their workers. Said differently, everyone loves (and needs) payday!
