Here at Tallie, we understand that credit card transaction management is mission-critical for your expense report software. Our goal is to provide the most reliable credit card options among all the expense tracking products on the market, and streamline the processes for significant time savings. In this release, we are introducing our “Bank Data Delivery” credit card import experience for Visa and American Express. Additionally, we added the ability to export corporate card expenses to bank accounts in QuickBooks.
Bank Data Delivery Credit Card Feeds
At Tallie, we take pride on the award-winning integrations we’ve built from the ground up. In order to support an even wider range of financial institutions and provide comprehensive in-house support for credit cards, we implemented our newest credit card integration, Bank Data Delivery. Bank Data Delivery is the fourth credit card transaction import method we provide, which will coexist with credit card aggregator, statement upload, and Direct Connect (OFX). Because it requires an agreement with your bank, to initiate a Bank Data Delivery connection admins must contact a Product Expert, who will enable the feature, walk you through the setup and ensure a successful data delivery from your bank.
Bank Data Delivery is optimal for businesses with commercial cards that need support for tens to hundreds of corporate card sub-accounts. Once a profile setup has been completed, the credit card feed will appear like a normal feed as our current connection methods. Similar to the functionality when a new account is detected by our aggregator or PEX, when the bank sends transactions attributed to a new sub-account, it will show up on the Credit Cards page automatically.
At this time, Visa and American Express are fully supported. We plan to roll out Bank Data Delivery to MasterCard in early 2017. See our KB article for more details.
Export Corporate Card Transactions to Bank Accounts in QuickBooks
Admins who use Tallie to track debit card and/or bank account transactions (or use our PEX Card integration) can now export to QBD bank accounts! QBO users have had this functionality for a while and now QBD users can do the same.
To use this feature, simply map the corporate card to a bank account on Manage Lists > Company Cards page, and export per usual. Non-reimbursable charge export generates a check, while non-reimbursable credit export generates a deposit. Note that both charge and credit are exported to the specific, individual account mapped to the account on the Company Cards page. This feature also honors export settings including “Send merchant name to accounting” and custom payment memo.
New Version of TallieConnect for QuickBooks Desktop Users
We have updated our QuickBooks Desktop sync tool TallieConnect to version 11.1.30. This version addresses the export duplication issues for customers in hosted environment and has been fully tested for QB 2017 compatibility.
For admins who manage multiple Tallie accounts, we also made it harder to sync the wrong QB file by displaying a warning when the selected file to sync is different from the previously-synced one.
Additionally, we made some changes to improve user experience, including the ability to suppress notifications and sounds in Settings, ability to allow TallieConnect to do background syncing, which will prevent QuickBooks from opening a secondary window when the correct file is already open in the primary window, and display a notification when Tallie is in maintenance mode. Download and install the latest version now to take full advantage of TallieConnect!
