Third party add-ons are software components developed by companies other than Intuit that offer an additional feature outside of QuickBooks that is not contained in the software itself. At its heart, QuickBooks is an accounting software. It has a lot of great capabilities outside of accounting functionality, but some businesses require a specific process tool. Third party add-ons can be the solution to these needs. Some are industry-specific, like manufacturing software, and others can provide a way to do more robust barcoding or a time clock-in/clock-out.
