Not All QuickBooks Integrations Are Created Equal

Continuous, 2-way sync is essential to have a modern, automated law firm workflow with QuickBooks. Without it, you are setting yourself up for manual workarounds. 

One Set of Books: LeanLaw makes QuickBooks the source of truth

Many software vendors say that they sync with QuickBooks Online and some even have an app in the QuickBooks Online app store. More often than not, this is a rudimentary, one-way sync that means the numbers you’re looking at might not be real-time data. In this case, you have to manually sync and will frequently have what is referred to as “stale data”. 

LeanLaw – Best Legal Software Integration into QuickBooks Online

LeanLaw treats QuickBooks integration as part of the workflow, rather than a feature, with QuickBooks as the source of truth. The result: one set of books that alleviates unnecessary, manual work when the numbers don’t match.

LeanLaw has a real-time connection to key QuickBooks features, such as classing, QuickBooks Payments, and custom form fields to improve data integrity and our clients’ experience.
