QuickBooks Connect is your moment to step back from the day-to-day demands of running a business and learn skills that will have a positive impact on your future.

It’s nearly time for QuickBooks Connect. A time when accounting pros step away from the demands of the office to learn from the very best in the industry. When you can learn what it takes to make your firm’s vision a reality. QuickBooks’ partners from around the globe, like the team from Practice Ignition, are looking forward to meeting you, inspiring you, and of course, learning from you.
Practice Ignition is a Gold-level sponsor with a focus on streamlining client engagements and automating client payments. Come to the booth to learn more and chat with the amazing team about how to go from proposal to paid without the chase.
Tell us a little bit about Practice Ignition.
Practice Ignition is both a proposal system and a payment gateway. It’s effectively two (or three) applications in one. It allows you to price up your client work, create your engagement letter and automatically bill your client for all the services listed on multiple variables – whether that’s fixed fee or ad hoc arrangements.
The end result is a perfect client onboarding process. It’s a solution that ensures that you’ve collected 100% of your client payment information, so you’re confident that you’ll get paid for the work that you’ve priced and agreed upon. Not only will you have better profitability, but your efficiency and client experience will also be incredible.
How does Practice Ignition work with QuickBooks?
Practice Ignition is your all-in-one client onboarding solution, helping you get paid and removing all the admin, both before and after they become a customer.
The integration into QuickBooks® means you’ll never need to raise or touch an invoice again. It’s completely automated based on the billing and payment schedule set up in your proposal and payment plan.
And because your payment system is connected to the original contract, whenever the agreement is updated in Practice Ignition, it automatically updates your payment schedule and the invoice schedule back in QuickBooks. This alone will help you save countless hours.
