What are Integrations?
Integrations are pre-defined links between one program and another, to enable data sharing and communication for key tasks.
Many businesses are currently discovering the benefits of cloud-based software solutions, such as GeoOp, and the convenient and efficient work platform they provide. However, as with all businesses today, your business requires multiple software solutions to fit your needs and workflow. Unfortunately there is often no one-stop program available to do everything your business requires, in precisely the way you require it. Unless you are willing to pay vast sums to have someone design and build one for you! So you need to find multiple solutions, that link together, to cover the business requirements that you need. GeoOp provides these missing links for you, 'integrating' into key functions in other service areas such as accounting and inventory, to help you piece together the best overall solution for your business.
How are they used & what purpose do they serve in GeoOp?
The Integrations you create from GeoOp will help with both the initial set up and enable ongoing efficiencies your business will benefit from. So any possible Integrations should be set very early in the process, and certainly before you create any clients as these can be imported as part of the integration process.
When created, GeoOp Integrations perform a number of useful tasks. The main Integrations provided at present are with Xero, Freshbooks and Unleashed. Integration with accountancy services like Xero and Freshbooks brings great time saving advantages to your Job management process, whereas an Integration with an inventory management service like Unleashed boosts the productivity of both your on-site Staff and office functions, and aids accurate job costing.

Do Integrations cost?
There is no cost to enable these integrations, just the individual subscription cost for each service. For the Integrations mentioned above, see the individual websites for further details:
- Xero - www.xero.com
- Freshbooks - www.freshbooks.com
- QuickBooks - www.quickbooks.com
- Unleashed - www.unleashedsoftware.com
- DPS Payment Express - www.paymentexpress.com
What if I can't use any Integrations?
Don't worry, though our Integrations are useful if you have them, GeoOp performs all its core functions of Mobile Job Management independently. Though we recommend you may want to consider using integrated products in the future, there are other options for transferring data in and out of GeoOp. For example you can import clients via CSV (Comma Separated Values) files - full details can be found here. Parts/inventory data can also be imported - full details can be found here. For invoicing, relevant data for an invoice run is exported in CSV format for use as required.
How can I add Integrations for programs not currently listed on your website?
Our team can develop custom features in GeoOp at affordable rates, or provide you with API access for integration with other web applications or your own in-house systems. Please send us an email detailing your requirements by clicking here.
