At this time we do not integrate with Quickbooks.  You can expect Quickbooks integration to be launched first quarter 2014, if not sooner!

We understand the importance of Quickbooks integration and the importance of invoicing accurately, however our emphasis has been on the production of a tool that will enable you to win more work for more money in the easiest and fastest manner available, and we have created it!

Many of our users quickly realize that the benefits associated with using Landscape Layers, even though it did not currently integrate with Quickbooks, was far greater than current time and cost savings that they experienced in closing more work.
