10 Common Questions About the GetLinked Software

We truly believe that there’s no such thing as a silly question, and we hear a lot of questions from potential customers or new-to-us customers. We’re excited to hear from motivated business owners, franchisees, and key decision makers, and we look forward to the chance to be able to answer any question they pose to us.

But, we also know that only the people who reach out directly to us learn the answers to these valuable questions. We understand that there are so many of you who are in the research phase, and you might be wondering the very same thoughts.

We decided to pull together some of the most commonly asked questions about our software and share it publicly for those too shy to call or still shopping around.

How does GetLinked work?
GetLinked is an interface which converts time and point of sale data into “financial” accounting transactions. It also takes the sales data, like the General Ledger, payroll, deposits, payables, receivables, and other financial data and then transfers it into accounting systems or to payroll service providers.

However, GetLinked 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. Learn more.

What type of businesses need GetLinked?
Any type of business that needs financial integration from their front of house or online store to their back office financial accounting systems. These systems can include daily sales, payroll, receivables, payables, general journal entries, bank reconciliation among others.

What industries does GetLinked serve?
Across industries, GetLinked is the financial integration software of choice. We serve a wide range of industries, including, but not limited to:
● Accounting and bookkeeping
● Payroll providers
● Travel (hotels, resorts, cruises)
● Entertainment (casino, stadiums, arenas)
● Food and beverage (restaurants, food institutions)
● Health and fitness (gyms, club owners)
● Public and private clubs
● Franchises
● And more!

What modules are available to purchase?
You have the option to purchase subscriptions in one, more, or all of the following GetLinked modules, depending on the needs. The investment is priced per location (profit center) per module.
1. POSLink (Daily Sales)
2. PRLink (Payroll/Time and Attendance)
3. APLink (Accounts Payable)
4. ARLink (Accounts Receivable)
5. GLLink (General Ledger)
6. BRLink (Bank Reconciliation)

Is there any downtime when installing GetLinked?
GetLinked functions separate from your POS and Time Clock systems so there is no down time for your operations when installing GetLinked.

How does GetLinked extract data?
We link the data from your POS system into any accounting program with either direct access or importing capabilities.

The data is then formatted for importing into master files, such as the chart of accounts, vendors, customers, checkbook, employees, and more, and work files, like bank reconciliations, receivable and payables sales transaction entries, general ledger transactions, payroll transaction entries, among others. Learn more.

What if my POS system doesn’t match my accounting system?
All GetLinked software modules have translation tables for accounts, employee numbers, employee department, job, pay codes, customer numbers, vendor numbers, and more. Your point of sale system does not have to match your financial system — we can help you with the translation.

Can GetLinked tell me the accuracy of my data?
Yes. An exception report prints when importing and transferring data. It will list out of balance transactions, and missing data, such as accounts, deposits, sales, and more.

What if I change my financial systems after I’ve implemented GetLinked?
All available interfaces are included in your annual subscription, so if any of your systems change during that time frame, you can simply update GetLinked to match your new systems.

Are there any benefits for being a repeat customer?
Yes! We value our relationships with our customers so much. And to honor our gratitude for them, we offer two customer-only benefits that our current customers tell us they really appreciate.
The first is our referral program, in which we reward happy customers who recommend our services to other people and businesses in their network. In the basic program, customers will receive a 15% commission for every referral who makes a purchase. They’ll also receive 15% of their continued yearly subscription purchase moving forward. That percentage increases from 15 to 30% for our next-tier Referral and Marketing program.
Another popular perk to being a repeat customer is that our subscription costs less for returning customers so long as there is not any interruption or nonpayment in re-subscribing.
Have a question that’s not on here? Well, don’t hesitate to ask. We look forward to hearing from you!

What Industries Benefit from GetLinked?

Accuracy, efficiency, and speed are critical to your organization’s continued success. But what you’re currently dealing with when it comes to gathering, sorting, and organizing financial data is anything but efficient, accurate, or speedy!
In fact, you or your employees are spending so much time manually integrating and processing information from within your current payroll, sales, and purchasing tools. Exhausting, right? It’s a waste of both time and resources, and you’re fed up and ready for a change.
Right now, you’re looking for a financial integration software specifically tailored to your industry’s intricacies. After doing your research, you’ll find that across industries, our product is the financial integration software of choice.
Here, we’ll share how we help a wide range of industries, a testament to GetLinked’s unparalleled versatility.

Accounting and Bookkeeping

Accounting firms are well versed handling financial data, but they also need software that helps to integrate that data from many different point of sale systems with their accounting systems. They also want the ability to process heavy loads of data in a quick and virtually error-free environment. Working with GetLinked allows them to achieve the integration and data processing that allows them to do their jobs in a more efficient and accurate manner.

Our customers in the accounting industry are experts in managing multiple projects on tight deadlines to keep their customers satisfied. When they partner with GetLinked, these firms decrease cost and margin of error, while also improving productivity, bolstering return on investment, and strengthening relationships with their customers.


Hotels, resorts, cruise lines, and other travel-related organizations share very similar priorities. These industries are focused on providing an impeccable experience to their valued customers. However, the travel industry faces so many variables and moving parts to navigate an excellent customer experience. Even minor errors prove to have major consequences — for both the industry and the customers they serve.

GetLinked makes your financial work both seamless and flawless—saving time and stress.

By partnering with us, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, or any other subset of the travel industry can stay on top of every transaction, from every revenue center — perfect for both business and pleasure!


Hosting large-scale events requires one eye on the big picture and another focused on details to ensure the experience provided ends in perfection. That’s a lot of pressure on the entertainment industry!

When it comes to casinos, stadiums, arenas, and other entertainment venues, we understand that even their most attentive employees may make unnecessary errors — they’re human after all.

GetLinked helps our entertainment industry customers to manage all their financial nuances and hone your attention on what matters most: your guests. This way, they can focus on providing an exceptional experience, whether it be helping concert goers rock out, feeding a stadium of hungry football fans, or keeping the cards dealt to casino goers. It’s a win-win for everyone!

 Health and Fitness

There’s so much to consider in the health and fitness industry. First, and most importantly, is the health of their customers, but in a business sense, these companies are also stressing about membership fees, sales and equipment costs, employee time clock and payroll data, and more!  Finances take up a lot of brain space (and manual time and effort) for health and fitness organizations.

Smart health and fitness organizations refuse to be swallowed up by the myriad financial details that make their business run smoothly. We help to streamline your processes so you can devote your time to the most important part of your business: Your customers!

 Restaurants and Food Institutions

It doesn’t matter if a restaurant is considered a small-town gem or an international franchise, there’s one thing we know for sure: crunching numbers isn’t the most exciting part of their business! They’d rather focus on providing an excellent customer experience while crafting food that is out of this world.

And let’s not forget about the sector that supplies food as an integral service, like hospitals, schools, or other enterprises that provide thousands of meals every day. With such high utilization, streamlining financial services is integral to being efficient.

GetLinked saves our customers in the restaurant and food industries countless hours by speeding up their accounting transactions for more immediate (and accurate) results—so they can get back to doing what they love best — feeding their loyal customers.

Additional Industries

What we’ve shared above is certainly not an exhaustive list of all the industries we support. From payroll service providers to public and private clubs to franchises and beyond, we’re happy to support organizations from across a wide spectrum of new, burgeoning, and existing organizations.
