Apatar reveals implementation of its hosted service takes 30 minutes or less using a browser. Apatar On-Demand was designed to automatically de-duplicate data while synchronizing accounts, opportunities, purchase orders, and invoices between Salesforce.com on-demand CRM and the QuickBooks accounting system.

Apatar, Inc., the leading provider of open source software tools for the data integration market, today launched Apatar On-Demand for Salesforce.com CRM and QuickBooks accounting software. Apatar On-Demand Edition is a hosted service that synchronizes order data between Salesforce.com CRM and desktop QuickBooks accounting software. It was designed for business users, so the process of setting up the integration link does not require technical skills. Apatar On-Demand Edition for Salesforce.com and QuickBooks allows running one- or two-way, recurring or one-time synchronization of account, contact, order, and opportunity data, while preserving links between tables in both Salesforce.com and QuickBooks.

Designed specifically to avoid double entry, subscription to Apatar software also includes embedded data quality service. To free its users from manual data upkeep, Apatar software searches and removes duplicate accounts every time it synchronizes order data.

Apatar On-Demand is available on AppExchange at https://www.salesforce.com/us/appexchange/detail_overview.jsp?id=a0330000005kn33AAA
