Existing Revel Client and New QuickBooks Client

By Amelia Dwyer | Updated


Note: Inventory costs will push (create journal entries) from Revel to QBO in initial sync so please disable this if it it not wanted in QBO. This could cause an inflated General Ledger. 


 If products are already set up in Revel Systems, they do not need to be set up in QuickBooks (QBO) so leave them as they are. For Summary Integration, it is not required to map the Products between Revel and QBO.

  1. If the client wants to set up their products in QBO as well, they can, but Inventory will not be deducted in QBO. Inventory is only maintained in Revel.

  2. Summary Integration will not pass any Products from Revel to QBO.


Inventory and Vendors:

 1. If inventory is set up in Revel and updated with vendor information, leave this as it is. The only information that will be synced in regards to Vendors is a “Bill” payable in QBO.

It is advised to use Revel Inventory to manage the quantities on hand. It is important to note that QBO will report changes to inventory through a Bill to update COGS (Cost of Goods Sold) and Inventory Asset account, however the quantities on hand will not be updated.


Employees and Payroll:

 Employees are already set up in Revel.

  1. If you would like to use the Payroll functionality in QBO, please follow the steps below

    1. Deactive Employees in Revel before starting the integration setup.

    2. Before integrating, enter employees into QBO.

    3. After the sync occurs, add roles and wages to the newly added employees in Revel.

If the client does not want use QBO Payroll, then keep Employees as is.


Customer Relationship Management:

 If customers are set up in Revel; leave them as is.

  1. Manage all CRM through Revel after integration

  2. Customers that are created in Revel will not sync or integrate to QBO so if they are needed in QBO, please add them separately. This can be done via import/export of an excel spreadsheet.

If this occurs, please contact Revel Support for assistance in activating the feature.
