What’s the difference between OpenSync and CoreObjX/DB

The key advantage of OpenSync is the turnkey nature of it. You can install it and have QuickBooks data bi-directionally syncing within minutes. OpenSync is very much a desktop application which will permit anyone with even a modicum of technical expertise access to real-time QB data from the friendly, open confines of a relational database.

CoreObjX is a development tool. It is a COM-library – on which OpenSync was developed – that will require a programmer to implement. If you have the wherewithal, you can use CoreObjX to talk directly to QuickBooks without the need of a bridge database like what OpenSync would create for you. This is ideal for those who already have an application in place or for those who don’t necessarily need to export data out to a SQL database.

CoreObjX DB – an add on for CoreObjX – specifically accounts for 80% of OpenSync functionality by exposing extremely powerful create, refresh, and populate database methods which effectively emulate the comparable calls made through the OpenSync UI.

Do you support QuickBooks for Mac?

No. Unfortunately, QuickBooks for Mac doesn’t have an API by which third-party solutions can integrate. We wish it did though.

How / where do I access the multiple contact data for a given customer?

Although the QB documentation specifies that additional contacts for a customer will be returned in the ContactDetail table, this functionality is not currently implemented in QB.  We create the ContactDetail table and have coded OpenSync and CoreObjX to handle it once Intuit remedies this issue.  We are currently discussing this with them but have no indication when they will correct this.

Do you support QuickBooks Point of Sale?

No. Not that we don’t want to but simply because up until now the demand hasn’t warranted the development cost. That said, if you’re interested in investing in the development, we’d be happy to speak with you.
