IP Commerce, Inc. and First Data Corporation, the global leader in payment technology and services solutions, today announced the launch of Commerce Sync® on Clover™ Station, First Data’s innovative, cloud-based business control and payment platform that puts a robust business application marketplace at the merchant’s fingertips.
Commerce Sync, now available in the Clover App Market, is a powerful new service that saves small business owners and accountants valuable time by eliminating the tedious and error-prone process of manual data entry. After downloading the service from the Clover App Market, Commerce Sync automatically transfers Clover™ Station sales information to QuickBooks® accounting software.
Commerce Sync can be activated in minutes directly from the Clover point-of-sale platform and the service seamlessly synchronizes the data that merchants use to manage and run their businesses. Commerce Sync then transfers all individual sales transactions to any QuickBooks online or desktop account with support for all payment types, discounts, sales tax, tips and merchant-entered transaction notes.
According to Intuit, U.S. small and medium sized businesses spend seven billion hours each year managing their finances. Commerce Sync relieves business owners of this burden, reducing the time spent on manual data entry and increasing the accuracy of their financial accounting. Commerce Sync can save a typical small business owner more than 180 hours each year.
“We help businesses become more efficient. This is what we do,” said Charlie Wilson, President and CEO of IP Commerce. “Commerce Sync gives back hours of time each week to overworked small business owners. Business owners now have the freedom to spend time on more important things at work or away from it. We are thrilled to be launching with Clover. Like us, Clover is committed to the needs of small business owners.”
Commerce Sync joins a growing list of available applications for businesses in the Clover App Market, which enables third party developers to distribute their products to merchants using Clover. “We are incredibly thrilled to add Commerce Sync to the Clover App Market,” said Leonard Speiser, president Clover Network Inc. “Clover was developed to address the unique and diverse needs of America’s 28 million small business owners and to help those businesses grow. Solutions like Commerce Sync, a highly robust app that supports both QuickBooks’ desktop and online customers, provide merchants with the tools they need so they can focus more time on their customers and businesses, and less time on data entry.”
“This is all about giving small business owners the benefits of another seamless QuickBooks integration that saves them time,” said Ronny Tey, Group Marketing Manager for QuickBooks Apps.com. “QuickBooks Online is the worldwide leader in cloud business management because it offers best-in-class tools, like Commerce Sync, that are tailored to meet the needs of small businesses.”
Commerce Sync can be activated directly through the Clover Station and is available to all new and existing Clover customers.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
