QuickBooks Interface Module

Keep using QuickBooks for A/P and A/R - No double entries!

Video - Quickbooks Integration

Initially, pc/MRP imports customers, vendors and part numbers from QB into pc/MRP.

From then on all new customers, vendors, part numbers, BOMs, stockroom transactions, POs, receivers, sales/work orders, and invoices are entered into pc/MRP. pc/MRP invoices and receivers are then exported to QB eliminating double entry.

If QB does not contain the part number, customer, or vendor listed on the invoice or receiver it is also exported into QB.

pc/MRP is the base program, used to control inventory, generate purchase orders, receivers, work orders, stockroom transactions, sales orders and invoices.

QuickBooks is used as the accounting module to make deposits, pay bills, print financial statements, generate credit and debit memos.

Application Menu

pc/MRP Main Menu

pc/MRP for Windows was compiled in Visual FoxPro for Windows. Since FoxPro uses dBASE III+ dbf files, pc/MRP's data base files, are compatible with dBase, FOX , Access, Excel etc. Version 8.10 and above uses the Miscrosoft Visual FoxPro database and Microsoft only supports this database through an ODBC interface.


pc/MRP's Single-user Business and two Multi-user versions are priced at $730.00, $1870.00, and $2495.00 respectively. Users can upgrade from the single-user version to the multi-user version by contacting Software Arts.
