MY VR integration with accounting software
Does anyone know the best way to import MY VR accounting into an accounting software program? Quickbooks, Excel, anything? Currently, our accountant is printing statements and hand inputting the financials and she is looking for a more efficient way.
Thanks for the help!
@donna-evans - I struggle with that every day, but I DO know they’re working on some items.
Currently there are capabilities for manually exporting customers/reservations to excel and/or CSV files. Then you can manually manipulate data and then import it to QB. But I haven’t mastered anything to the point of eliminating a step, so I manually enter everything. The only time I used it (automated entry) was when I lost 3 months of accounting data that I had to re-enter. I used the reservations export to create a worksheet, and then used the worksheet to import/create customers in QB.
I’ve played with Zapier a bit too, with both the Beta API interface and using 3rd party emails to Zapier to create worksheets. While the latter has been create for creating my to-do lists, it has not worked to transfer financial data.
Be sure to rank this with feature requests! The more users that need it, the higher it may rank in their priorities. They do pay attention to what users need!
I’m quite new to MyVR, but we have been working on an integration between Airbnb, Homeaway and Xero. We’ve just been accepted as a Xero partner and will be contributing to their integration ecosystem. We will possibly look to integration with MyVR, but currently we only support Homeaway and Airbnb.
How it works:
- The user uploads the Airbnb/Homeaway CSV file to the web app
- The properties are mapped from the listing name / Xero ledger per property
- The transactions are created as either invoices / bills for commission or cleaning
- Payments are created for the manager / property owners as an ABA file to be uploaded to bank
My background is Accounting/ Software dev and Property management. We use this system weekly for 70+ properties with a substantial revenue. It has reduced the processing time of our land agents trust account from days to hours. I’ve also taught my assistant (with no accounting knowledge) to administer the accounts with my supervision once completed.
I’m unsure if this is the place for cross promotion, but if you are interested, drop me an email / message and we can chat further.
