PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- A new modular feature in DAT Keypoint enables freight brokers to reconcile the popular transportation management software (TMS) with Intuit's QuickBooks small business accounting package. The module benefits brokers who want transportation management software, but don't want to let go of their familiar QuickBooks software.
"We developed the new interface because brokerage firms that are accustomed to using QuickBooks often wish to continue using it in conjunction with the DAT Keypoint TMS," said Steve Blair, general manager of DAT Keypoint.
The two-way integration enables brokers to create invoices and payments in QuickBooks, based on transactions recorded in DAT Keypoint. The broker sets up customer and vendor profiles in the TMS, defines contact information, shipping details, special instructions and other rules, and the TMS passes the supporting data to QuickBooks.
The new interface also streamlines communication between the broker and a third-party accountant or bookkeeper allowing them to transfer files seamlessly to their accountants in the QuickBooks format.
