Managing finances can be a construction company’s toughest – and highest – priority. Whether it’s payroll or keeping track of project goals, finances definitely aren’t fun but we can’t deny they’re at the heart of business. Luckily, using accounting software in conjunction with your project management software makes life easier … especially with a true 2-way sync.

QuickBooks integration with Buildertrend

What exactly do we mean by 2-way sync? Well, with the upgrade we recently made to our QuickBooks integration, information can transfer between Buildertrend and QuickBooks, quicker and easier than ever before. You have the ability to take job-specific expenses that originated in QuickBooks and send them back into your Buildertrend budgets for more accurate job costing across all of your jobs. Exciting, right?

Let’s get into some specifics. After all, you’re really just wondering what this means for you in your workflow.

How QuickBooks helps contractors

When you integrate with QuickBooks, you will have the ability to send over bills from unpaid Buildertrend expenses. When those bills are paid in full within QuickBooks, the related expenses in Buildertrend will also be marked as paid, cutting down on duplicate entry.


This update will strengthen the communication between your accounting system and Buildertrend, ensuring one very important thing … better financial accuracy.

Along with this, we are making it quicker to send bills to QuickBooks by adding the ability to do so in mass. With this update, you will be able to select multiple Buildertrend expenses and bill them to QuickBooks all at once. This will reduce the amount of time spent sending this information to your accounting system, helping to streamline your process.
