Using TimeLive's QuickBooks Integration Tool

[TimeLive QuickBoooks Integration Manager] provides users the ability to transfer information between TimeLive and QuickBooks. With the ability to transfer time and expense data, the integration module is an ideal solution for those working on projects or tasks that are to be billed to clients. Using TimeLive, you can track the actual time spent working on projects, then transfer the data to QuickBooks, to invoice clients for the work completed. Time data entered by employees can also be transferred for use in generating payroll timesheets in QuickBooks. Plus, expenses incurred against the project can also be entered in TimeLive, and transferred to QuickBooks to reimburse employees, pay vendors and charge clients. Additionally, you can use the integration module to save the time and effort associated with entering the user and project data in both QuickBooks and TimeLive. This duplication can be eliminated by entering the data in one application and transferring to the other using the [TimeLive QuickBooks Integration Manager].
