It wasn’t long after starting Cabbige in February 2014 that I realized what a huge role QuickBooks plays in farm businesses. It’s the revenue tracker, the bill payer, the forecaster, the cash flow manager. It’s the center of a farm’s financial world.
And, after two years of research, I came to the conclusion that QuickBooks is great at a lot of things (I use it myself), but software designed for every kind of business isn’t going to answer all the questions that farms need to know: How much did each of my crops make me? What’s the value of my CSA shares? How should I price kale in June vs. October? Which crops sell better at which markets?
QuickBooks gives farms a view into their finances; Cabbige gives farms a view into their business.
We integrated Cabbige with QuickBooks Online to make it easy for farms to have the full view with a single entry – both the high-level financials in QuickBooks and the detailed crop and sales channel tracking in Cabbige.
With QuickBooks Sync:
- Any sales or product records entered into Cabbige automatically generate a sales receipt or invoice in QuickBooks.
- We assign all of your revenue to the right products in QuickBooks, even revenue for products not tracked in Cabbige.
- Cabbige is flexible. Start your sales record and save it for later, track some crops but not all, update your records as you see fit; we track it all, and send it to QuickBooks to keep all of your records up-to-date. No double entry!
- Real-time notification of your sync status.
And Cabbige is easy to use. It takes 15 minutes to set up and 2-5 minutes each day. We're hosting a virtual demonstration on Tuesday, February 28th at 2PM and have 30-minute virtual trainings scheduled every other Wednesday, starting March 1st at 8AM. Join us for one and see how easy and smart QuickBooks Online and Cabbige are together.
