Integrating your accounting system

When integrating Workshop Software and ANY accounting system it is important to understand that the 2 applications will “talk to each other”, which is known as “syncing”.

Essentially this means that whatever data is in one application, for example Customers and Suppliers, will be automatically “synced” to the other application.

YOU MUST BE CAREFUL TO ENSURE that you do not create duplicates. This most often occurs when you IMPORT your Customers and Suppliers from one system to the other, and THEN INTEGRATE them together. This will always create duplicate records, which will then need to be removed.

Please note we can assist in the removal of duplicate records in Workshop Software, though this will incur an hourly service fee. But for any duplicate records created in your account system as a result of the integration can not be addressed by Workshop Software support staff.

If you are new to Workshop Software, and have any doubts as to how to proceed, it is strongly advised that you wait until you start the on-boarding process (for Silver+ level subscription users)
