Everyone in your organization accesses the data in real-time, maintaining the consistency of all scheduling, job tracking, and billing information. All of your data is safely archived and securely stored off site.
DASH “talks” to QuickBooks through the QuickBooks standard .iif files. Invoices created through DASH are exported to .iif files which are then imported to QuickBooks. QuickBooks Class Lists, Item Lists, etc., are exported to .iif files and imported to DASH.
Data from REM/Rate building files is exported to a DASH database. DASH consolidates the data from the individual REM/Rate files and generates reports from the merged data.
Data collected in DASH that is useful for REM/Rate is pulled to a special REM inputs tab to make REM data entry easier.

REM/Rate is currently being revamped to allow for more direct integration into DASH. As soon as this is possible, DASH will be ready: Our goal has always been that you should never have to type anything more than once.
