At my previous employer,” Joseph writes. “They hired an intern to type about 100 orders a day into QuickBooks. The company had over a hundred programmers. I asked myself; couldn’t one of them write software to automatically sync orders into QuickBooks? The company made software that helped move data in and out of databases, surely there must be a way.” Joseph left his employer in late 2009 and founded Sync with Connex, formerly known as JMA Web Technologies in January of 2010.
In February of 2011, Joseph met a programmer who showed him how to integrate QuickBooks with an online store. Connex built several connectors and they achieved some commercial success, but the connectors only worked with a few solutions. In January of 2013, Intuit announced the Intuit Partner Platform and their plans to promote QuickBooks Online more prominently. With this new technology, Connex could build several connectors quickly with no need to install files because data was transferred through the web.
Seeing a strong business opportunity, almost no competition in integrating QuickBooks Online, and desire to make QuickBooks simpler to integrate, Joseph built Connex for QuickBooks Online. “No one should type several hundred orders into QuickBooks,” Joseph writes. Business owners should focus on what they do best, which is selling their products and services.”
After the tremendous success of its QuickBooks Online integration, our business released Connex for QuickBooks. The software provides the same functionality of Connex for QuickBooks Online, but works with all versions of QuickBooks Desktop.
