“InterWeave cuts my workload by one third. Their Salesforce/QuickBooks integration has made it possible for FRB to continue to grow and take in more funds without worrying about how to process it all.”
With limited resources, Foods Resource Bank (FRB) relies heavily on volunteers and part-time employees to achieve its mission of raising money to help people in developing countries grow their own food. Greater operational efficiency means they can do more.
“Four years ago we were using a cumbersome accounting program which couldn’t track contacts or donations from overseas,” stated Lori O’Neil, financial coordinator. “We needed a more robust solution.”
FRB started looking at QuickBooks and Salesforce but realized they needed integration between the two programs to avoid duplicate data entry. “I wanted to input in one place and have it seamlessly appear in another,” stated O’Neil. “Someone I spoke to about Salesforce recommended InterWeave as a reliable integration solution.”
O’Neil contacted Bruce Magown, CEO at InterWeave. “He certainly knew what he was talking about and how to get it done,” stated O’Neil. “The cost seemed exceptionally reasonable and I trusted the recommendation.”
The implementation was simple and easy. “I gave them access to Salesforce and QuickBooks to map the fields,” explained O’Neil. “It was a quick and painless process for InterWeave to make it operational. I didn’t do anything.”
The InterWeave integration runs smoothly at regular intervals to transfer new contacts and donations. “It continues to not take my time,” stated O’Neil. “Bruce has a very confident staff, but I can easily run it on my own.”
In 2013, with a recommendation from InterWeave, FRB switched their QuickBooks hosting to Trapp Online. Processing is more reliable and faster, and they save $3,000 per year on hosting “That’s a lot of money for FRB,” stated O’Neil.”
Support is excellent and fast. “If you do need them the response is fairly immediate,” explained O’Neil. And, they certainly know their job.” InterWeave’s CEO is also quite accessible. “Bruce is very professional and responsive!” continued O’Neil. “I get an immediate response from him, all the time.”
Saves 5-8 Hours per Week
O’Neil does the majority of the work for FRB at home in the evenings and on weekends. “I spend one quarter to one third of my time inputting donations,” stated O’Neil. “Without InterWeave that time would double, adding 5-8 hours per week. I don’t have that much time!”
Efficiency and Confidence
The vast majority of FRB’s donations are received from mid-November to mid-January. “I couldn’t imagine how we’d be able to handle the workload without InterWeave unless we hired more staff,” related O’Neil. “That’s not what we need. Every dollar we save on operations can be spent on supporting people growing their own food.”
O’Neil processes an increasing number of donations with maximum efficiency. “There are days I can get a huge amount of donations,” explained O’Neil. “Once it gets into Salesforce I know it’s taken care of.”
“I grew up in this town. I still come back because what FRB does is worth my time,” summarized O’Neil. “Without InterWeave I wouldn’t be able to help them.”
Lori O’Neil, Financial Coordinator, Foods Resource Bank
From the beginning, InterWeave worked with our consultant and us to make the integration go smoothly. The team we worked with at InterWeave are extremely knowledgeable and very patient with clients and their learning curve to be taught how it all works. In actuality, it is very simple and that is because of how good they are.
Just recently, we upgraded to the latest version of Quickbooks and I did not realize that I needed to let InterWeave know. After I realized Quickbooks was not recording transactions, I contacted InterWeave and they had it linked back up within hours as well as was able to add in the transactions that were not recorded. This was a mistake I made and they still jumped to get it done. It is very rare you find companies that would do that for a mistake they make, let alone a mistake not caused by them.
I would HIGHLY recommend InterWeave! Please contact me if you are interested in using them. email@example.com
InterWeave is proud to announce special (extended sleep) modes for running QuickBooks scheduled flows. New features include:
- Multiple sleep windows are now supported.
- Every flow run happens at exact time even if some flow runs are longer than interval between runs (in that case some overlapped runs will be skipped).
- Flow run is limited by 1 hour.
The special extended sleep mode allows customers who are running other integration Solutions with their QuickBooks to set specific times when their InterWeave QuickBooks Solution will be running over a 24 hour time period. InterWeave = No conflict with other Solutions.
A first in the industry.
Talent Rover is a “software as a service” (SaaS) company that modernizes the staffing and recruitment industry. A combined thirty years of experience by founders Kent Gray and Brandon Metcalf created a perfect opportunity to build a solution from the ground up. The goal was simple: address the pain points long suffered by staffing and recruiting professionals and build an efficient, more flexible, highly adaptable, completely integrated solution. After being on more than a dozen systems in eleven years, it was time to build a compelling solution for the entire market. It was clear no one had leveraged the dramatic innovation in business software on behalf of the staffing and recruiting industry.
The result: Talent Rover, an intuitive, fully integrated cloud-based software solution created by successful leaders from the staffing and recruiting industry. It utilizes the premier Salesforce.com platform, the industry leader in cloud technology. Talent Rover is a unique offering dedicated to staffing and recruiting professionals that integrates applicant tracking, mobile, social media, customer relationship management, human resource and benefits management, online timesheets and expenses, gross profits and accounting software integration. Through robust analytics and forecasting capabilities found with Talent Rover, customers are able to easily and quickly understand their data to make informed decisions and grow their businesses.
We aim to become the gold standard in customer service, developing features and functionality that will surpass customer expectations and modernize the marketplace. To that end, Talent Rover is a company that almost exclusively hires from the staffing and recruitment industry – it is critical to our vision that each employee implicitly understands the pain points from having spent time “on the desk” as well as each clients’ specific methodology. To date our success has far exceeded our expectations.

Did you know that we recommend that you verify and rebuild your QuickBooks data every quarter? When was the last time you did it? Get to it!
Verifying and Rebuilding QuickBooks Data
Our partner, TrappOnline, has created a quick and simple video tutorial to help you through the process. You can find text directions below the video.
1. Admin Access to your company file ( local ) and single user
Important: If the company file is on a network drive, copy the file to your local computer before attempting to run this utility. Never rebuild or update a company data file that is located on a remote drive (for example, by accessing it over your network)
- Choose Window > Close All.
- Choose File > Utilities, (or File > Maintenance in Simple Start), and then select Verify Data. If the message QuickBooks detected no problems with your data appears, you do not need to take further action.
- If the message Your data has lost integrity appears, there is damage in the file.
- QuickBooks displays instructions for using the Rebuild Data utility to attempt to repair the data damage.
- After you use Rebuild Data, use the Verify Data utility again to check for any remaining damage
- Choose Window > Close All.
- Choose File > Utilities > Rebuild Data. (In Simple Start, choose Maintenance > Rebuild Data.)
- When a message warns you that rebuilding requires backing up your company file, click OK.
- At the bottom of the QuickBooks Backup window, click OK.
- If the backup fails, select Cancel at the Rebuild prompt. Then make a copy of the company file and try to use the Rebuild Data utility with the copy of the company file. Give the copy a unique file name. Caution: Do not try to rebuild your original company file if the backup is not successful. This may lead to permanent data loss.
- The Rebuild Data utility starts as soon as the backup is finished. Click OK when you get a message that the rebuild is complete.
- Close your rebuilt company file, and then reopen it to refresh the lists in the file.
- Choose File > Close Company.
- 9. Choose File >Open Company. Select the company you want to open, and click Open.
10. Review your check register and your Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss reports.
Why should I Verify and Rebuild my QuickBooks file?
From the Intuit support pages:
The Verify Data utility (akaVerify) is your primary tool for detecting transaction damage and list damage in your company data file. While and it does not detect all of the damage that might be in your file. Verify also detects damaged memorized reports and some list damage.
The Rebuild Data utility repairs transaction and list damage in your company file.
Verify Data detects many types of data damage; it can detect only the damage that it is programmed to find. Likewise, the Rebuild Data utility will only repair damage that it is programmed to fix. Both utilities record certain progress and errors in the Qbwin.log file in Windows and the QuickBooks.log file when using QuickBooks for Mac. The amount of time that will be spent running each utility depends on the size of the file, the speed of the machine and the condition of both.
InterWeave Smart Solution is proud to announce that their Payment Gateway now supports multiple Merchant Service Provider Accounts for one CRM instance. The Merchant Account is selected based on a field value for each particular record. The number of Merchant Accounts are dynamic (you can change at any time) and is unlimited. Multiple Payment gateways can also be set up – with multiple Merchant Accounts in each Payment Gateway.
