With many of their customers expressing a desire to synchronize QuickBooks with their CRM, SplendidCRM Software needed a powerful interface to merge QuickBooks data with the SplendidCRM product.

SplendidCRM Software, Inc. turned to CData to provide their company with a simple interface to add QuickBooks synchronization support to their CRM solutions. Choosing the right solution was mission critical for SplendidCRM Software because they wanted every new CRM solution to come with QuickBooks synchronization capabilities.

"The CData solution of providing an ADO.NET Data Provider interface was simple and elegant. It allowed us to develop a solution in less than two weeks."
