4 Great Tools that Make QuickBooks Work Better for Your Small Business

QuickBooks is incredibly popular with small business owners, boasting an 80% market share and 29 million small business users. As helpful as QuickBooks is, there are many Quickbooks apps for integration with the software to make it an even better tool for small business owners. Here are four of the best (in alphabetical order).

Quickbook Apps for Integration


Bill.com allows you to pay your bills and send invoices online (at any time, from anywhere you have an internet connection). And no matter which version of QuickBooks you use—QuickBooks Online (QBO), Pro, Premier, Enterprise, or QuickBooks Desktop, Bill.com seamlessly integrates with all of them, so there’s no disruption to your payments process.

For payments, when Bill.com syncs with QuickBooks Online, payments update automatically saving time, reducing errors, and speeding up reconciliation. You’ll be able to streamline and customize your approval workflows and get paid faster using ACH or credit cards. And there are built-in reminders and tracking, so you never miss a payment.

Invoicing is quick—you can enter invoices by email or simply drag and drop them into Bill.com—and with the QuickBooks integration, you only have to enter them one time.

Overall, with the combination of Bill.com and QuickBooks Online, your payment processing system is efficient and easier to manage. Bill.com talks directly to QuickBooks, so changes—like a newly created bill or a sent payment—are automatically updated.

That leaves you time to devote to revenue-generating activities.


Fundbox is an AI-powered financial platform that offers almost instant access to business credit. To apply for a loan, you give them some information about your business, connect your accounting software and bank account, and you’ll hear back in moments. If approved, the funds can transfer to your account as quickly as the next business day.

The integration with QuickBooks makes applying a simple two-step process. In QuickBooks, you click the “Get App Now” button, and Fundbox automatically connects with QuickBooks Online. Once you verify some details about your business, Fundbox reviews the information in your QuickBooks account and makes a credit decision.

If approved, you can use your credit within QBO. You click on the “Transactions” tab, choose “Sales,” click “Advance Payment,” and select an unpaid invoice. Several years ago, my company turned to Fundbox while we were waiting to get paid, and the process was really that simple.
