Frequently Asked Questions
Connect is not a standalone product. It uses the Precise API to obtain client-permissioned access to accounting, banking, payments, and commerce software. Connect is included if you use the Precise API or the Access partner portal.
Whether you’re using the Precise API or the Access partner portal, a client is asked to share their business information and is prompted to provide direct access to all accounting, banking, payments, and commerce systems. They do this by logging on to their existing accounts. Connect will read all synced financial data and prompt the user to connect everything for a complete 360 financial overview. Once the client syncs their accounts, data is instantly available via the Precise API or the Access portal.
Connect is available immediately out of the box. However, if you’re working with our Precise API, implementation will vary depending on your company’s needs, requirements, and in-house resources. Development with the Precise API may take as little as one day to as long as several months, depending on the extent of your integration, but our Access partner portal is ready to use out of the box.
Many companies don’t have a development team on standby to help implement new technologies like the Precise API. To help support smaller businesses, we have the Access partner portal, which offers ongoing financial monitoring, smooth client onboarding, and absolutely no development needed on your end.
