QuickBooks Time Sheet Integration Added to ArchAdministrator for Architects

COLTS NECK, NJ, April 28, 2004 -- PS Software Solutions announced today that it has added additional Intuit QuickBooks integration into its increasingly popular software program ArchAdministrator. The new QuickBooks Time Sheet integration feature compliments the recently added QuickBooks Accounting integration feature and allows users of ArchAdministrator's time sheet module to export thousands of time sheet logs into an Intuit Import File (IIF) using just a few mouse clicks. ArchAdministrator automatically formats the time sheet records so that they can be easily imported into any new or existing QuickBooks company file.

This powerful new feature eliminates the need for double-data-entry for those firms recording/tracking time sheet data in both ArchAdministrator and QuickBooks. It also enables users, working solely in ArchAdministrator, to provide their bookkeeper/payroll service with detailed employee time sheet data. The ubiquitous "IIF" file format can be used by accounts/payroll services throughout North America to import and track employee logged hours, generate payroll, payroll taxes, etc. 


The ArchAdministrator user has the additional ability to specify the following when generating an Intuit Import File (IIF):

  * Name of QuickBooks Item/Account to Import Time Sheet Records into
  * Reporting Period - Start Date and End Date of Period To Include
  * Whether to Subcategorize Employee Time Sheet Records by Project Phase 
  * Whether to Include the Job Number as a Subset of the Customer Name

All associated service items, employee names, customer names, job numbers, etc., recorded in ArchAdministrator (and associated with time sheet records being exported) will be included in the export file. QuickBooks will automatically create new employees, customers, job numbers, etc. when imported ArchAdministrator records do not exactly match records existing in QuickBooks.

ArchAdministrator automatically logs the quantity and type of exported transactions and stores the reporting period for each export session. The ArchAdministrator also generates a "QuickBooks Export History" report that delineates the details of each export session and sorts the report by export file dates.


With more than eighty-five free version upgrades since its introduction in 1997, ArchAdministrator continues to establish itself as the standard against which all office and project management software will be measured and offers design professionals the most comprehensive database solution on the market. ArchAdministrator has garnered praise from the architectural community and maintains a competitive lead in its technical innovation, seamless integration, and user-friendly design.
