Procountor integrations and API

Procountor provides versatile options to integrate other systems to the software. The two alternatives are either a real-time interface or the use of transfer files to transfer the data. 

Procountor API – a constantly evolving interface

Procountor API (Application Programming Interface) is a programming interface that allows you to call Procountor from another application and utilise the data in real time. Procountor API is available for all Procountor Financial Management environments (with the exception of Procountor Ledger).

Procountor API can be used to build integrations that add value, between commercial applications or company specific internal systems and Procountor. Many popular applications already have an interface to Procountor.

Cost of Procountor API: 9.95 € / month

Fixed monthly price for one Procountor environment.

The monthly cost includes an unlimited number of applications to integrate. This means that the same fixed price covers, for example, the integration of your EPR application and online store application to Procountor. 

All prices exclusive of VAT at 24%.

Items generated to Procountor using the interface are charged using item-based billing as outlined in the Procountor service price list. Charges related to the service are invoiced monthly, alongside other Procountor charges.

All prices and costs will have the applicable VAT and other applicable taxes and official charges added.

Accounting Firm API

Accounting Firm API is a new invoicing model set up to meet the needs of accounting firms. Using the Accounting Firm API it is possible to send invoices for API charges relating to the interface use of certain software packages to the accounting firm instead of the end customer. Additionally, the Accounting Firm API uses a pricing model that actively supports the business of accounting firms – this especially takes into consideration situations where the integration is being used with a large number of customers. 

Accountor Finago defines which software packages are covered by the Accounting Firm API and accounting firms can choose whether to use the Accounting Firm API invoicing model with these packages. If they choose not to, API invoicing is carried out as per the usual set up. 

The Accounting Firm API invoicing model is not available for all software packages that have been integrated to Procountor. Only a limited number of software packages will be included in the Accounting Firm API.

What are the criteria used to select a software package to be included in the Accounting Firm API?

  • the software package is only used by accounting firms (not end customers) and the integration benefits accounting firms directly 
  • the software package uses data about customers’ Procountor environments

Do you have a software application that you would like to have included in the Accounting Firm API? Our experts at integrations@procountor.com can help with this and other Accounting Firm API related queries. 

Deployment of the API

The deployment of the Procountor API requires that the application or system has had an integration built against the Procountor API. It is the responsibility of the customer to build an interface in the system to be integrated to Procountor to send and receive calls if the software does not already have this interface available. Please refer to our API deployment guidelines on our development website dev.procountor.com/.

Please note that integration consultation is not included in our free of charge customer service.

Procountor API technology in a nutshell

Procountor API has been designed according to the REST (Representational state transfer) principle. This method builds an interface or system architecture based on HTTP calls. The data transfer format used is JSON and authentication adapts the OAuth2 process.

  • REST based 
  • Supports JSON format 
  • Updated with normal version updates

Ready-to-use interface to transfer invoices

When using the automatic invoice transfer interface, invoice material can be transferred to Procountor automatically. The ready-to-use integration is quick to implement, and it supports data transfers for both purchase and sales invoices from an external system. A pre-packaged module for invoice transfer is available as an additional Procountor service.  

Importing material using transfer files

Transferring data from other systems to Procountor makes it easier to get started. Importing the basic data to the financial management software is quick to do. Data transfer can additionally be used if the company uses several different systems and wants to keep the data between them up to date.

Using predefined transfer files (CSV format) it is possible to import data relating to business partner registers, product registers, invoices, memo vouchers, payroll and dimensions to Procountor.
