I just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for providing us with a much needed software solution like GetLinked to link our FoodTrak system with our Great Plains Dynamics accounting System.
You and your staff were extremely helpful with the implementation and training of the program. The install was a snap, the program loaded seamlessly with Great Plains Dynamics and looks and works just like it was an integral part of the original Dynamics software!
GetLinked is quick and easy to use…just a click of a button and all of our invoices are imported and entered automatically. No more double-entry of invoices, and the edit feature also flags invoices that have been previously entered, so we’re sure that we’re not double paying someone.
GetLinked has saved us hours and hours of data entry, and has dramatically improved the efficiency of our operations.
Thanks again for a fantastic program!!!

This letter is in response to your request for my overall evaluation of your software. In 1994, I began a search for software that would be Windows based and have the power and capabilities to move our accounting processing into the 21st century. The search process narrowed the choice down to few companies that could handle the base accounting processing needs. However, none of the choices could handle the integration of POS (Point of Sale) systems data with that of the base accounting software. Third party developers were not able to meet the challenge either until Accounting Solutions, Inc; (ASI) came onto the scene.
GetLinked has proven to be a great and dependable product for the complete integration of polled data into a general ledger accounting package.
For the mere fact that McDonald’s Corporation did not have a viable solution for the polling of our 40 McDonald’s restaurants we support, I feel that GetLinked is a unique product. If you recall, I had serious concerns with the original pricing of the product. Obviously I thought the product cost too much, but Great Plains really did not have a feel on how to handle reference pricing, distribution, etc. Once again this all lends itself to the uniqueness and customization of the GetLinked product.
The business world is constantly looking at the cost/benefit relationship in contemplating financial decisions. In my opinion, where a McDonald’s operator, owning 15 stores for example, is manually dealing with the sales data significant dollars can be achieved. Couple this with the potential of labor savings in the payroll area also, I would estimate that a full time to a full time and a half position would be eliminated. The smaller operator would realize considerable savings by moving to an automated approach. Second the savings issue, there is a remarkable improvement in the accuracy of the data.

We have recently been introduced to a new product called GetLinked.
GetLinked creates a link between a restaurants point of sale (POS) system and our Great Plains Dynamics accounting modules. The sales information from our POS system is directly imported into our General Ledger and Bank Reconciliation (checkbook).
GetLinked also retains store information for sales reports, contains modifiable reports, and is flexible in handling a single store or an unlimited number of stores. Being able to update our accounting system with GetLinked, helps us manage cash flow better and reduces back office labor hours and mistakes. With our initial use of GetLinked, we have been impressed with its capabilities and flexibility.
We are looking forward to the next release and additional features in upcoming updates of GetLinked.
