Visibility into your key accounting metrics and data is critical to running your business. Many accounting software solutions now offer integration with dashboarding tools. For example, QuickBooks Online (QBO) integrates with Tableau data visualization software. The Tableau to QBO connector offers business owners a real-time view of revenue, expenses, accounts receivable and accounts payable, income by product line, vendor expenses and more. The idea is to keep business owners, bookkeepers, and accountants aware of what is happening in the business at all times.
