TSheets, a top developer of time tracking software, today announced a deeper integration with Intuit’s QuickBooks Online designed to deliver accurate payroll and invoicing – without the manual entry. This seamless integration, where TSheets time tracking and reporting functionality is discoverable inside QuickBooks Online, enhances the collaboration between the two products, allowing small businesses to streamline their invoicing and payroll processes, and in turn maximize their profits.

Examples of the work being facilitated by the new TSheets and QuickBooks Online integration can be seen by small businesses across America. Jeff Rainbolt, foreman at Tower Air, Inc. in Goleta, Calif., struggled with accurate time tracking for years. His billable hours weren’t as accurate as they should be, so the company’s bimonthly payroll process was a disaster. It wasn’t until Tower Air’s owner, Bob Freeman, implemented mobile, automated timesheets with TSheets + QuickBooks Online did Jeff and his team realize just how much money they were losing on unbilled time — about 26 percent — and inaccurate payroll every month.

“We switch jobs a lot throughout the day,” Rainbolt said. “I'd be working on one job and run into another maintenance guy who needed help with something else. At the end of the day, if that paper timesheet wasn't in my pocket, or I forgot to fill it out completely, the whole system broke down.”

Not properly tracking billable time and labor hours had the potential of putting Tower Air behind the competition in a highly-competitive, service-based industry. Even when all their paper timesheets were accounted for, there were a lot of steps involved getting that time from paper to payroll. That’s when the Tower Air team discovered TSheets inside QuickBooks Online. Suddenly, clocking in and out, switching jobs, and submitting timesheets for payroll were as easy as the tap of a button, and the Tower Air team found automation made a significant difference to their small business.

Tower Air, Inc. is just one of 6 million small businesses with hourly employees in the US. “Our mission is to help small business owners succeed, and what better way to do that than leveraging the back office solutions that business owners already use, like QuickBooks, with tools that employees love, like TSheets,” commented Kyle Jenke, TSheets’ SVP of Platform and Global Business Development. “We couldn’t be more excited to advance the TSheets + QuickBooks Online user experience, where combined, our customers can increase their billable hours and save on gross payroll costs. There is potential for a significant increase to the bottom line for these hardworking business owners.”

“It is important for our QuickBooks Online customers to have a seamless experience when importing their time from TSheets in order to get the best possible outcome for their payroll and bottom line,” said Gretchen Salyer, ‎Director of Strategic Partnerships at Intuit QuickBooks. “QuickBooks is proud to continue to partner with TSheets, allowing for a more streamlined integration with their software for small businesses on our platform.”

Customers can try TSheets and experience this seamless integration with QuickBooks Online free for 14 days. After the free trial period, TSheets is available for a base fee of $16 per month and an additional $4 per user, per month.
