If you’re like most aviation organizations, you already use QuickBooks. In fact, as we pointed out in an earlier post, 90% of small businesses use QuickBooks as their preferred accounting program.
Daily operations certainly have a direct impact on your bottom line. Aircraft equipment, schedules, dispatch, pilots, communication, maintenance, and other day-to-day operations all have associated costs. It’s therefore very important to find an operations management platform that integrates with QuickBooks.
The good news is that SkyManager seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks, helping you manage all aspects of your operations with accuracy and efficiency. Let’s take a closer look at how this integration adds value to your aviation business.
Stop Importing to QuickBooks
Your QuickBooks system creates data in a format that allows you to easily import and export to and from compatible systems. The Intuit Interchange Format (.IIF) stores standard text (ASCII) in a data format separated by commas or other characters (CSV). Sure, many business programs read CSV data files, but few offer true integration.
With SkyManager, operations and accounting data flow seamlessly back and forth to QuickBooks. There is no need for you to manually export or import data, saving you time and money.
Stay on Top of Receivables (& Payables)
Aviation operations require numerous assets, resources, and tasks. Keeping track of who you owe and who owes you can be daunting.
By integrating your operations and accounting systems, staying organized becomes much easier. Thanks to SkyManager’s integration with QuickBooks, invoices are synchronized between both systems. You can also track and manage receivables with minimal effort. Errors are reduced and overdue receivables can be flagged for action. Your pilots can even make online payments via PayPal. Even your year-end tax process is simplified thanks to this integration.
Payroll is a complex component of any business, especially for those in the aviation industry. Your organization likely uses contractors, subcontractors, and independent employees. This can make it quite difficult to manage the various payroll tax requirements, particularly if you’re keeping your records in spreadsheets or on handwritten notes.
Fortunately, QuickBooks Payroll can skillfully handle this data for your business. And, since SkyManager furnishes accurate operations data in a format that QuickBooks can use, you save significant time by not having to manually re-enter the information.
Smart aviation businesses live by their operations reports. What services are most profitable? Which employees or contractors are most productive and profitable? How are expenses being managed? What equipment brings your business the highest ROI?
SkyManager produces these reports for you, along with integrated accounting reports to help you make smarter business decisions. Simply point, click, and customize the reports. It’s that easy.
