Volopa product update
Introducing Accounting Integrations - with Xero & QuickBooks
Cut your bookkeeping time in half with the new Xero and QuickBooks integration with Volopa. Categorise, review and sync transactions in real time.
Keeping your finances in order is a lot like trying to build a sandcastle on the beach. The longer you spend building it, the more likely it is that someone will come along and destroy it. As experts in payments and expense management (and sandcastles, in case you were wondering) we give you the tools to build a sandcastle that can withstand high water levels—no matter how big or small your business is, or how many transactions you make each day.
That’s why we are integrating our platform with your favourite accounting systems, to make your working day run smoother, whatever business you run. We’ve started the integration journey with Xero and QuickBooks and are on track to add some other favourites into the mix.
Now, as soon as you make any Volopa card transaction, it’ll be automatically synced straight into your accounting software with a single click of a button – no more double-entry headaches!
Connecting the dots
When you’re a business owner, you know there’s nothing more important than meeting your clients’ needs. That’s why we’ve always been committed to making it easier for finance teams and company treasurers to manage and control their finances through a single unified solution.
It’s also the reason why teaming up with Codat was a no-brainer as it allows us to kill several birds with one stone: we can offer our clients the widest range of available accounting systems on the market and we can do it all with a single integration; helping finance teams save them hours in admin, unnecessary errors, and ensuring optimum data accuracy.
Ali Al Bajati, Head of Product at Volopa says, “Our clients use different accounting systems, so a wide range of available accounting systems is key to being able to meet their needs. This is where the single integration with Codat has been particularly useful.”
With a single integration, we don’t have to build different connectivity with each system—shortening the time to market by several months. The expertise and open dialogue offered by the Codat team throughout the integration has been extremely valuable in helping us design an optimal solution for our clients.”
Why QuickBooks and Xero?
Xero and QuickBooks have been powering small businesses around the world for over a decade. We chose to start our integration journey with Xero and QuickBooks for a number of reasons, but mainly because of the popularity of both platforms with our customers.
Xero offers an all-in-one solution for growing businesses, including payroll management, invoicing, bookkeeping, inventory management and reporting tools. QuickBooks Online is a cloud-based accounting solution that allows users to manage their finances through mobile apps or desktop software. It offers real time insights into bank transactions as well as all other financial details such as sales revenue reports and profit margins compared to previous periods.
How does it work?
Setting up the integration is a simple process that takes minutes. Using the sidebar, you select the option to connect your Volopa account with your accounting system, then simply select which system you want to connect with and give permissions for your accounting system to access your Volopa transactions.
How will it help?
- You’ll save time on bookkeeping
- You can sync your transactions in real time
- Reconciliations will be a breeze
What happens next?
The next step is for you to configure your account. This involves selecting which Volopa cards you wish to sync transactions from and matching your Volopa transaction categories with your account & VAT codes. Once configured, your transactions will appear in the transactions screen, where you can review and sync individual transactions.
When your employees use their Volopa Business cards, their transactions will appear on the transactions page in real time, where they can be synced with your Xero or QuickBooks account with a single click of a button, saving time and reducing errors!
