How to convert a Sage BusinessWorks Data file to QuickBooks

Switching accounting systems can be intimidating, as you are dealing with oodles of sensitive financial data, and you need to ascertain that all your data is transferred completely and accurately from one system to the other. At the same time, it is highly important to take the time to review your records and get rid of the bad data such as inaccurate inventory counts, duplicate vendor entries, or aging accrual balances. Another aspect to take note of is filtering out irrelevant data such as inaccurate liability balances, or outstanding balances on old jobs that have been written off or collected.  Taking bad data to the new system is neither feasible for your accounting nor your business needs.

Online websites and tools that offer conversion services may seem appealing with low conversion costs, but once you sign up, you will only find yourself being hit by costly hourly post-conversion fees.

With over two decades of data conversion expertise, E-Tech masters the art of data conversion. E-Tech can covert your Sage BusinessWorks data to QuickBooks Premier, Pro, Accountant, Enterprise, or QuickBooks Online conversion, for a flat fee! All versions of Sage BusinessWorks will be migrated to QuickBooks or QuickBooks Online with 100% accuracy and guarantees conversion of the Trial Balance, Profit and Loss, and Balance sheets in QuickBooks to match Sage BusinessWorks data. All other financial reports including Aging A/R, Aging A/P are guaranteed to match as well.

The first step is to evaluate the source BusinessWorks data and compile the number of lists and transactions that will need to be converted to QuickBooks. A no-obligation quote is then sent after the analysis is complete. The conversion is scheduled at your convenience and can be performed during evenings and weekends to make the transition as smooth as possible with the least amount of downtime. When the conversion is complete, a secure QuickBooks backup file is sent containing the converted data that you will restore into QuickBooks. All financials are audited to ensure that the financials in the converted data match the source data to the core.

The following is a list of what is converted:

  • Lists
  • Chart of Accounts
