QQube Third Party Add-Ons

We are happy to announce a new feature to our line of QQube offerings – access to third party add-ons to our QQube product.  That’s right, 3rd party add-on to a QuickBooks 3rd party add-on.

Our goal is to give you easy access to information to successfully run your business, and while we eliminate 80% Of the hard work, it doesn’t mean that we can solve every scenario out-of-the box.

Our founder and CEO Chuck Vigeant, M.Ed. was able to start this business because of his accounting background, his experience writing thousands of customer reports, and being a QuickBooks Pro-Advisor for several hundred companies who used QuickBooks. So, it is no surprise that several of our Certified QQube Solution Providers came up with new ideas to better serve our customers, including one who started a hosting company (Noobeh).

Custom Grouping, Mapping, and Hierarchies

One of the frustrations for customers who have specific layout requirements for financial statements or job profitability reports is that the natural order of accounts needs to be manipulated to achieve the results.   This might involve tweaking the accounts in a single QuickBooks company – or trying to combine multiple charts of accounts from multiple QuickBooks Files into a single model.

While it is possible to do this in tools like Excel or PowerPivot, it is too cumbersome and costly.  So, one of our QQube Certified Solution Providers Ernest Cook, owner of A Better Idea, developed a tool called AHA (stands for Alternate Hierarchy Assistant) which makes the alternate mapping of accounts a breeze.

The AHA tool is not just a one trick pony, as you can create tax mapping for S Corp or Schedule C tax filers. An additional bonus is the ability to create an alternative job name hierarchy.

Here is an example:


You can use this tool as a stand-alone add-in or contract with Ernest for his custom reporting solutions.

Ernest has many other goodies and tools on his site, such as Commission Reports and a unique Accounts Receivable Audit Report which analyzes all activity after a designated point in time.

He is well known in the Intuit Community as a speaker, consultant, and an expert in multiple reporting tools such as Excel, PowerPivot and Crystal Reports - and has been featured in several blogs on our site (see: Ernest Cook presents at Scaling New Heights | CLEARIFY ). 

He is especially well known for his proficiency with, and prowess for, Power BI projects using QQube.

Push a Button Reporting

Analyzing data comes in many forms, and the way we do so can change from generation to generation.  Decades ago, it was green bar paper replete with rows and columns, and now it can be a simple data point on a cell phone.  There certainly is no right or wrong – just how we choose to digest the information.

Some people are data scientists that enjoy using pivot tables, or writing complex DAX formulas in Power BI, and others just say, “I just want to hit a button, and everything spits out”.  Reports might include several financial statements, or also include Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, or even Sales.

Some people can do this with some fancy macros or programming in Excel, or by implementing Power BI, but another of our QQube Certified Solution Providers comes to the rescue with her tool for “push a button” reports.

Crystal Reports is still the only tool – after 30 years - which has the advantage of providing any level of custom pinpoint layout. The Crystal Reader negates the need for having to purchase additional copies of Crystal Reports, so that any number of users can run the reports.

While there are other Crystal Report Readers available, the offering from Datisfy is geared towards seamless integration with QQube.

You can use this tool as a stand-alone add-in if you build your own Crystal Reports or contract with Angela for her custom Crystal Reports reporting solutions.

You can purchase this tool directly here: https://datisfy.com/product/datisfy-report-viewer/ 

Angela also has some advanced out-of-the-box reports for sale on her website.  She labels these customizable reports as “Profit Packs”.  The reports range from AIA Payment Application Reports to 13 Period Profit and Loss – both using QQube technology as the base.

Angela is well connected in the Intuit Community as a conference speaker and works with many QuickBooks Pro Advisors on reporting solutions for their clients.
