What is GetLinked Software?


This afternoon, you found yourself talking to a colleague about how much of your time gets wasted on administrative tasks. You’re frustrated, and you can’t seem to find the time to finish everything you need to do.

You know these manual tasks are important, but you also know there must be a better way. There must be a more modern way to approach your work. You weren’t surprised to hear your colleague mention GetLinked as a potential solution, because it’s been recommended to you in the past. But you’ve never had the time to research what it is and how it can help. You’re looking for a change, and now you’re seriously wondering, “What Is GetLinked software?”

Here, we’ll explore what GetLinked is and how it can help you free up more time so you can focus on what’s really important at work.

What is GetLinked software?

GetLinked Software is an interface that converts point of sale (POS) and time clock data into “financial” accounting transactions. It also takes the sales data (General Ledger), deposits, payroll, receivables, payables and other financial data and transfers this information into accounting systems or to payroll service providers.

However, the software does more than simply import POS and other remote data. It also validates all the POS information being imported, as well as all the financial data that is transferred to the financial accounting system.

The GetLinked system asks questions such as: 
Does the account number exist?
Does the journal entry balance?
Does the detail distribution of the invoice equal the total invoice?
And more…

Still confused? Don’t be. The basics are that every point of sale or time clock system has a method of exporting  relevant financial data. The secret of GetLinked is its ability to import that raw data, such as POS or time punches, validate it, and convert it into accurate financial data (for example, turning it into an accounting journal entry or payroll processing). Then, GetLinked transfers it to your financial system, like QuickBooks, PeopleSoft, ADP, or others.

Here’s the bottom line:
GetLinked software provides faster and more accurate results for busy businesses while removing the opportunity for human error at the same time.

GetLinked plays nicely

At this point, you might be wondering if GetLinked will work with the systems you’re currently using. You either like the software you’re currently using or you don’t want to deal with the hassle of looking for new systems that will work with GetLinked.

Great news, you don’t have to!

GetLinked integrates with over 1,300 point of sale (POS), time clock, financial, and payroll systems. While we don’t endorse or recommend any particular systems, here’s a list of systems we interface with. Don’t see your specific system? Don’t worry. Here’s how GetLinked software helps with your unique system.

GetLinked offers freedom for busy businesses

Think about everything you could accomplish if you no longer had to manually sort through this information. It’s all possible with GetLinked. All it takes to import and transfer data for multiple locations and date ranges is a single click.

How Does the GetLinked Subscription Work?


You are the ultimate diligent decision maker.

And we say this not to tease or poke fun — it’s an honorable trait. When it’s time to make decisions about what to purchase in your professional or personal life, you research thoroughly, collect data, analyze similarities and differences, and move forward feeling confident you’ve made the right decision because of all the time and effort you’ve put into the process.

Right now, you’re looking for a financial integration system for your organization , and we’re honored you’re considering GetLinked . But you might be curious about how our subscription-based system works.

Here, we’ll explain the basics of our GetLinked Software Subscriptions (GSS), and how choosing to link up with us will save your company time, effort, and money immediately and in the long term.

What You Need to Know About GetLinked Subscriptions

All of our subscriptions are licensed on an annual basis, which runs from July 1st through June 30th each year.

But it’s not July 1st today, is it? And this leaves you wondering what you’ll be charged and for how long your subscription is valid, right? We understand, and this is one of the most commonly asked questions  we receive.

Great news — our subscription plan is prorated on a daily basis. This means that you’re only paying for the actual time you’re using through the end of the subscription period. So whether you start in November, February, or May, your pricing will be adjusted to reflect the remainder of the subscription year.

And we believe in being upfront with our pricing so that you can factor the cost into your decision-making process . We don’t hide our prices and force you on a sales call to try to close the deal. Our pricing is available to view every day at our online store. Here, you can view what today’s price is to subscribe so you can feel confident knowing you’re getting a great deal for a great product, and not paying for an annual year if you join us after the subscription period begins.

What’s the Benefits of Subscribing?

When you choose GetLinked as your financial integration software, you can rest easy knowing that your annual subscription grants you access to any enhancements to the product, as well as any software updates that occur during that time period. Better yet, we’ll provide you with online documentation, support topics and the technical know-how included in our helpdesk.

If you’re looking for more hands-on help, there are upgrades available to add to your subscription. GetLinked customers can purchase one-on-one support packages through our online store if any need arises in which you want a little extra help.

What Modules Are Included in a GetLinked Subscription?

With so many other tools out there, consumers are forced to purchase an entire program loaded with many modules that will likely go unused as they only need a portion of the product to achieve what they need in their business. The beauty of our software is that you only need to purchase the modules  you actually need.

When you join GetLinked, you have the option to purchase subscriptions in one, more, or all of the following modules, depending on your organization’s needs. The investment is priced per location (profit center) per module.
POSLink (Daily Sales)
PRLink (Payroll/Time and Attendance)
APLink (Accounts Payable)
ARLink (Accounts Receivable)
GLLink (General Ledger)
BRLink (Bank Reconciliation)

 What Interfaces Are Included?

GetLinked integrates with over 1,300 point of sale (POS), time clock, financial, and payroll systems, and with a subscription, you’ll have access to all interfaces for all systems per module. We’d bore you if we listed all of the 1300+ interfaces here, but some of the most popular are Square, Micros, Aloha, ABC Financial Services (Fitness Clubs), Intacct, QuickBooks, ADP, Paychex, US Foods, Sysco, and many more options.

The access to so many interfaces is what so many of our customers love about working with GetLinked, and you’ll have access to the interfaces with a subscription.

What Happens When The Subscription Ends?

If June 30th doesn’t feel too far away, you might be wondering what happens with your subscription. Don’t worry! We’ll notify you in advance of the expiration date with instructions on how to purchase your next annual subscription. So long as there are no interruptions (time or payment) on your part, this process will be seamless!

Here’s something we’re really excited about: customers who choose to continue their annual subscriptions with GetLinked get discounted pricing for most modules so long as they continue to purchase their subscriptions every year without interruption or non-payment. We’re so thankful for our very loyal customers , and this is just one of the many ways we share that gratitude with them.

Also, we understand that sometimes our customers may need to interrupt their service, such as if a location is closed or for other reasons. Because the subscription is sold as an annual subscription, it will stay active until the end of the subscription period with no prorated refunds.

That being said, we currently have a 92% re-subscription rate , and potential customers have access to a trial period to test and make sure our software works best for their organization.

We’re proud of our subscription service, and we’re honored to have so many long-term customers who feel the same. If you feel like you’ve done your due diligence in researching financial integration systems, we hope you’ll join our subscription service. Find out more about the specific products we offer.


GetLinked Offers New Tools To Assist With Financial Integration

GetLinked adds educational tools and information to the website regarding integration

September 2 – GetLinked reviewed the most common questions from restaurant and hospitality businesses wanting to integrate point of sale, payroll and other systems to financial accounting systems. With the review of these questions, GetLinked has added new tools and information to their web site addressing these specific inquiries and concerns.

The new tools have been created to assist customers when starting the integration process as well as guide them throughout the implementation. The new features include a Financial Calculator to see the actual cost and comparisons between manual and automated processes, diagrams and new Forum topics. These tools help make the transition from manual to automated quicker and easier for customers installing a financial integration system.

For years, GetLinked has helped owners and accountants review and understand how data from their point of sale (POS), payroll and other systems can be electronically connected to their accounting systems. The process of identifying what the customer can expect, what is needed and how to implement are the most common questions asked and are now documented and explained on the GetLinked web site and Forum. These new topics and diagrams help customers integrate their POS systems to their financial accounting systems no matter what system they use.

A few of the most common questions asked are:
How does integration software take my point of sale data (ex. daily sales, payroll, member charges, purchases) and convert it into accounting transactions?
Does integration software handle transactions from multiple locations?
How hard is it to get a system installed and working?

GetLinked Software addresses these technical needs in their software and by adding these new Forum topics provides quick and helpful answers that explain the complete process of financial integration.

The Financial Calculator results usually surprise the customer once they add up the labor costs versus the automation options. Just inputting the number of personnel, the hours and the hourly rate to operate most accounting departments is shocking. Once customers see the benefits of automating the bookkeeping process they know they need to implement a financial integration system.
GetLinked Software supports countless POS and financial systems and continues to develop interfaces as new systems come onto the market. With the GetLinked Software customers can electronically interface their daily sales from all stores into their accounting system either internally or use an accounting firm to handle all the recording details. Business owners and accounting personnel can now setup the interface once and record daily sales, payments, refunds, discounts, processing fees and more to the correct accounts in their financial system. Owners can review their financials in their own accounting system or from anywhere in the world 24 hours a day by logging into a secure site if using a cloud based financial system.
