Frequently Asked FreshBooks Driver Questions

Learn more about FreshBooks drivers & connectors for data and analytics integration

The FreshBooks driver acts like a bridge that facilitates communication between various applications and FreshBooks, allowing the application to read data as if it were a relational database. The FreshBooks driver abstracts the complexities of FreshBooks APIs, authentication methods, and data types, making it simple for any application to connect to FreshBooks data in real-time via standard SQL queries.

Working with a FreshBooks Driver is different than connecting with FreshBooks through other means. FreshBooks API integrations require technical experience from a software developer or IT resources. Additionally, due to the constant evolution of APIs and services, once you build your integration you have to constantly maintain FreshBooks integration code moving forward.

By comparison, our FreshBooks Drivers offer codeless access to live FreshBooks data for both technical and non-technical users alike. Any user can install our drivers and begin working with live FreshBooks data from any client application. Because our drivers conform to standard data interfaces like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET etc. they offer a consistent, maintenance-free interface to FreshBooks data. We manage all of the complexities of FreshBooks integration within each driver and deploy updated drivers as systems evolve so your applications continue to run seamlessly.

If you need truly zero-maintenance integration, check out connectivity to FreshBooks via CData Connect Cloud. With Connect Cloud you can configure all of your data connectivity in one place and connect to FreshBooks from any of the available Cloud Drivers and Client Applications. Connectivity to FreshBooks is managed in the cloud, and you never have to worry about installing new drivers when FreshBooks is updated.

Many organizations draw attention to their library of connectors. After all, data connectivity is a core capability needed for applications to maximize their business value. However, it is essential to understand exactly what you are getting when evaluating connectivity. Some vendors are happy to offer connectors that implement basic proof-of-concept level connectivity. These connectors may highlight the possibilities of working with FreshBooks, but often only provide a fraction of capability. Finding real value from these connectors usually requires additional IT or development resources.

Unlike these POC-quality connectors, every CData FreshBooks driver offers full-featured FreshBooks data connectivity. The CData FreshBooks drivers support extensive FreshBooks integration, providing access to all of the FreshBooks data and meta-data needed by enterprise integration or analytics projects. Each driver contains a powerful embedded SQL engine that offers applications easy and high-performance access to all FreshBooks data. In addition, our drivers offer robust authentication and security capabilities, allowing users to connect securely across a wide range of enterprise configurations. Compare drivers and connectors to read more about some of the benefits of CData's driver connectivity.

With our drivers and connectors, every data source is essentially SQL-based. The CData FreshBooks driver contains a full SQL-92 compliant engine that translates standard SQL queries into FreshBooks API calls dynamically. Queries are parsed and optimized for each data source, pushing down as much of the request to FreshBooks as possible. Any logic that can not be pushed to FreshBooks is handled transparently client-side by the driver/connector engine. Ultimately, this means that FreshBooks looks and acts exactly like a database to any client application or tool. Users can integrate live FreshBooks connectivity with ANY software solution that can talk to a standard database.

The FreshBooks drivers and connectors offer comprehensive access to FreshBooks data. Our FreshBooks driver exposes static and dynamic data and metadata, providing universal access to FreshBooks data for any enterprise analytics or data mangement use. To explore the FreshBooks driver data model, please review the edition-specific FreshBooks driver documentation.

Using the CData FreshBooks drivers and connectors, FreshBooks can be easily integrated with almost any application. Any software or technology that can integrate with a database or connect with standards-based drivers like ODBC, JDBC, ADO.NET, etc., can use our drivers for live FreshBooks data connectivity. Explore some of the more popular FreshBooks data integrations online.

Additionally, since FreshBooks supported by CData Connect Cloud, we enable all kinds of new FreshBooks cloud integrations.

FreshBooks Analytics and FreshBooks Cloud BI integration is universally supported for BI and data science. In addition, CData provides native client connectors for popular analytics applications like Power BI, Tableau, and Excel that simplify FreshBooks data integration. Additionally, native Python connectors are widely available for data science and data engineering projects that integrate seamlessly with popular tools like Pandas, SQLAlchemy, Dash, and Petl.

FreshBooks data integration is typically enabled with CData Sync, a robust any-to-any data pipeline solution that is easy to set up, runs everywhere, and offers comprehensive enterprise-class features for data engineering. CData Sync makes it easy to replicate FreshBooks data any database or data warehouse, and maintain parity between systems with automated incremental FreshBooks replication. In addition, our FreshBooks drivers and connectors can be easily embedded into a wide range of data integration tools to augment existing solutions.

Absolutely. The best way to integrate FreshBooks with Excel is by using the CData Connect Cloud Excel Add-In. The FreshBooks Excel Add-In provides easy FreshBooks integration directly from Microsoft Excel Desktop, Mac, or Web (Excel 365). Simply configure your connection to FreshBooks from the easy-to-use cloud interface, and access FreshBooks just like you would another native Excel data source.
