Things You Might Want to Know About ZipBooks

Machine Learning. As you start repeating transactions, clients, and vendors, ZipBooks will start to recognize those transactions and begin tagging those transactions and contacts automatically. From those tags, you can make transactions and accounts easier to find and create customized reports for legal accounting software.

Security. ZipBooks uses data centers to store your data that have on-site security guards and biometrics to restrict access only to authorized individuals. They also have third-party security experts run routine audits to make sure their security measures are up to the highest industry standards. Your data is backed up in a number of different locations so you’ll always have cloud access as long as you have a connection.

Payroll. While ZipBooks does not have payroll features, they work closely with Gusto (and are working on a Gusto integration) to manage your payroll needs. If you use a different payroll provider, ZipBooks can help you import that data into its software as well.
