Shipping and Accounting Errors Reduced by Connecting QuickBooks to a Multi-Carrier Shipping System

QuickBooks can now connect to CPS Multi-Carrier Shipping System for fast, accurate shipping and shipment accounting.

Online PR News – 13-October-2011 – – Harvey Software, Inc., today announced that its flagship multi-carrier shipping system, the Computerized Parcel System (CPS™), now connects to Intuit’s QuickBooks accounting software. A modestly priced new program available from allows CPS to import shipping data from QuickBooks as well as export shipping costs, tracking numbers, and other necessary shipping information back into the popular accounting program. The instant electronic data connection allows for greater transparency between the shipping and accounting departments and greatly reduces the possibility of human error.

“This latest version of the QODBC driver for QuickBooks 2012 opens up a lot of possibilities for shippers who need to integrate their shipping system with their QuickBooks,” said Terry Kennedy, Vice President of Alliance Marketing at Harvey Software. “Previously, using QuickBooks with CPS required manual entries for each customer and each order. This created a delay between entering an order into QuickBooks and making the shipping entry into CPS. Now, data from QuickBooks imports automatically into CPS using just the customer reference number, eliminating a significant step from the shipping process,” explained Mr. Kennedy. “As soon as a package is shipped, CPS can write the shipping cost and package tracking information back to QuickBooks. This means that necessary shipping information is shown directly on the QuickBooks invoice, increasing invoicing visibility. Customers appreciate the invoice with the complete shipping and tracking information,” continued Mr. Kennedy.

“This integration is an important step QuickBooks users can take to speed-up order entry, shipping, and accounting. By decreasing the user input necessary between systems, a business reduces shipping and accounting errors,” said Mr. Kennedy. “After investigating this new integration capability, we are very pleased to offer our customers a streamlined connection between QuickBooks and CPS.  Making this available to our customers helps them almost as much as switching to a multi-carrier shipping system from a single carrier solution. We provide complete, detailed directions to set this connection up,” stated Mr. Kennedy. “We encourage both current customers as well as those thinking about employing a multi-carrier shipping system to investigate how much this connection will streamline their shipping and accounting processes,” concluded Mr. Kennedy.
