Why so few add ons for QuickBooks Online?
I have used QuickBooks Pro since the late 1990s. There is a huge base of add-ons. When we needed extra functionality for QuickBooks Online, I naively assumed there would be a similar set of products. What I found was just the opposite. There are only a handful of add-ons even listed for QBOE, and most of those don't seem very full-featured. The ecosystem is nothing like the QuickBooks Pro ecosystem. At a basic level I understand. There simply are not as many users of QuickBooks Online as for the desktop versions. So most developers focus their efforts on the desktop. That's fine I guess, but it doesn't solve my problems. So I ended up developing my own solution. That is what OE Companion is all about.
