We have been using QuickBooks. Can you transfer any data to your software should we decide to switch?
- If you can export your vendor info to an excel or csv file, you can copy it over to our import sheets.
- We will help you with the ledger account balances.

If the account amounts are incorrect, we will work with you to calculate the correct account balances.
