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®
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
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.
