A slow and painful birth

It’s 3:27 am and I can’t sleep. Concerned and worried. It’s been 10 long years of incubation. No one ever fully explained to me the slow and painful truth … integrating 10 years worth of data from QuickBooks into a “new” system would be so trying. And after working the ENTIRE day on this project, we’re still not even half way there.

Will it be worth it? I believe so (or at least hope it will). Huge corporations surely must have perfected the ability to create hundreds (even thousands) of invoices in one fell sweep, taking data from their sequel server. Surely there must be a better way than manually processing hundreds of credit card transactions. It is mind boggling to think that QuickBooks doesn’t have the function or capability to process credit cards in one batch if the amounts change each month. At least, this is what I’ve been told by several QuickBooks’s tech people, “We’re working on it, and expect that this coming summer we will have the capability to batch in a variety of ways.” Again, I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

The guys at BQE Software have been great. Lot’s of handholding, explaining and reassuring me that my baby (my project) will be worth this effort.
