Kircher Design and Build needed a simplified, affordable accounting and budgeting solution that could seamlessly integrate with their CRM of choice, Buildertrend. Kircher wanted:

  • Streamlined data flow and app integration.
  • A simple, scalable, total solution.
  • Combined reporting for their construction company and holding company.

The expert team at Fishbowl selected QuickBooks Online Advanced as the best solution for Kircher Design and Build’s needs.

Full-circle flexibility

Kircher Design and Build was not getting the functionality their business needed from the overly expensive, complex financial management software they were implementing. Starting fresh with QuickBooks Online Advanced gave Kircher the total package flexibility and features they wanted, at a fraction of the cost. The QuickBooks Online Advanced API, designed for integration with applications such as Buildertrend, allows Kircher to transfer notes, budgeting, and even photos between the two systems with no gaps in data, which keeps customers, builders, and managers on the same page.

Support for future growth

The Fishbowl team provided Kircher Design and Build with comprehensive QuickBooks Online training, and worked together with an integration specialist from Buildertrend to ensure the Kircher team’s success. With the flow of data and reporting between the app and QuickBooks, Kircher will be able to reach more customers and potential customers with targeted email marketing. And when those efforts bring growth, Kircher can scale with QuickBooks Online Advanced by simply adding and defining new user roles. With the significant savings they’ve gained, and Fishbowl in their corner for continued support, Kircher can confidently build into the future.

With QuickBooks Online Advanced and Buildertrend working together, Kircher can keep very detailed notes, attach pictures of the products, and have all those details pushed over from Buildertrend into the note section of QuickBooks. The integration is going to allow both systems to really be used to their full capability, and create that same mid-market ERP system value at a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the learning curve that it takes other programs. – Beverly Lang, senior director of integrated services, Fishbowl
