We are interested in using a Hubspot CRM but need to clarify if the integration will work with Reckon Accounts Hosted. Can someone please tell me if the actual data file is on a server but is backed up on the cloud? Is this correct?

I'm not sure ~ eagerly awaiting reply.

Who are you going through for the integration?
(I'm interested in getting it done too)

Thank you Tirzah

Thanks for your reply Rachael. Just needing to know more about our actual Accounts Hosted file first, before we can find out how the integration will work.
- Is it stored on a server?
- What component is on the cloud?
Many thanks

The file and the application are on amazon web servers. It wont intergrate with your crm. And its RECKON not Quickbooks.

Thank you Jason. Are you able to expand on Kevin Russell's reply above? I would have thought an API assists with cloud CRM integration. Is Reckon on Amazon web servers?

Hi Tirzah,

Unfortunately Kevin is incorrect and in fact I know Kevin knows that Reckon Accounts Hosted has an API, so I am not sure there sorry. 

Check the docs and you'll get a clearer picture of how it all works. In summary:

Reckon One: RESTful API 
Reckon Accounts Desktop: SDK
Reckon Accounts Hosted: SDK wrapped in a RESTful API

Hosted is the desktop application sitting in AWS in a hosted environment. It renders in a browser tab so there is no virtual desktop, and hence the SDK is wrapped in a RESTful API so it mascarades as a RESTful API utilising json and oauth2 for example.

However once server access is aquired the desktop SDK takes over. The results of the call are then passed back in a json body. Its a longer round trip than desktop, so you need to know that going in.

We also have dev partners who have done custom work with Hosted already, so that may be another option. 


Regards,
Jason
