What is Qvinci?
Qvinci is a dashboard and financial reporting solution. An add-on platform for QuickBooks, Xero and other accounting software, it offers consolidation, a patented Standard Chart of Accounts feature and benchmarking capabilities. To learn a little more about Qvinci please visit our Qvinci Overview Video. For QuickBooks Desktop Qvinci offer a Sync Client by which reporting connections may take place. The Qvinci Sync app should be installed on the same server/machine as where the QuickBooks application is installed. In a server environment the Qvinci Sync app should be installed on all servers, across all user accounts, where users will log in to access QuickBooks files that will sync to Qvinci. This sync client allows the Qvinci Contributor to link and sync the QuickBooks file(s) to the Qvinci dashboard for reporting. The person responsible for installing the Sync App must have Windows Admin permissions.
