Dec 2023 Update: Sync Upgrade, EoY Tax, SDK Expansion & More

We’re excited to share some significant updates to our Trolley platform, designed to streamline your business processes and enhance user experience. In this product update blog, we’re covering a range of enhancements from new functionalities in Sync to important tax season preparations, along with SDK updates and accessibility improvements.

As the year comes to a close, we want to take a moment to look back on this year’s achievements, and how Trolley has evolved to better serve your needs. Thanks to the invaluable feedback we get from our customers—pain points and all—we have built a truly end-to-end payout platform, helping you make smoother and faster payouts than ever before. 

Trolley’s wrapping up the year by streamlining business processes with Sync’s journal entry and ledger reconciliation, preparing for tax season with the 2023 EoY Tax Center, enhancing developer support with updated SDKs across all programming languages, and advancing accessibility with WCAG 2.1 compliant UI updates.

Let’s dive into the details of what these latest enhancements mean and how they can benefit your operations.

To get started now, log in to the Trolley platform. If you’re looking for more details, keep reading or book a demo of any features you think will add value to your payout workflow.

Enhanced Sync: Journal entries and general ledger reconciliation

We’re thrilled to announce a significant expansion in our Sync product, marking a milestone in Trolley’s integration capabilities with your ERP systems. Earlier this year, we introduced a seamless two-way synchronization between Trolley and your ERP. Building on this foundation, we have now integrated advanced journal entry workflow functionalities.

This new feature is especially beneficial for those who manage their invoices or payments directly through Trolley. With the enhanced Sync, you can now effortlessly reconcile your general ledger entries within your ERP.

This integration not only simplifies the accounting process but also ensures accuracy and consistency in your financial records. We invite you to explore this feature in greater depth by reading our detailed blog post on the value of Trolley Sync & our ERP integrations, which provides a comprehensive overview of how this new functionality can optimize your financial management.

2023 EoY Tax Center launch on December 10th

As we approach the end of the year, it’s time to focus on tax season preparations. We’re excited to announce that the 2023 End of Year Tax Center for US Trolley Tax customers will be launching on December 10th. This dedicated tax center is designed to streamline your tax review and filing process. Starting from this date, you will have access to all your tax records for the current year, allowing you to get a head start on your tax preparations.

On January 1, 2024, Trolley will release comprehensive recipient tax statements, updated with data up to December 31st, 2023. This ensures that you have the most current information at your fingertips. 

Additionally, beginning January 8th, 2024, the e-filing feature will be available, making it easier for you to meet your tax obligations electronically. Our goal is to simplify your tax season, making it more efficient and less stressful. 

Comprehensive SDK updates across all languages

Earlier this year, we initiated a project to enhance our Software Development Kits (SDKs) for better functionality and support. We’ve achieved a significant milestone in this journey—the complete update and release of our SDKs for all the supported programming languages: JavaScript, Ruby, PHP, Python, Java, and .NET.

These updates have been carefully crafted to provide a more robust and versatile development experience. Whether you’re building new applications or maintaining existing ones, our updated SDKs offer improved coverage, making integration with Trolley’s services smoother and more efficient. We encourage developers to explore the new features and capabilities of these SDKs in our blog post.

Upcoming accessibility enhancements in UI

Continuing our commitment to inclusivity and accessibility, we’re excited to bring you an important update regarding our user interface (UI). Following our previous announcement of our commitment to accessibility standards, we are on track to implement updates compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 for our recipient UI later this month.

In anticipation of this change, the current UI will remain the default option for the time being. However, users who wish to transition early to the updated UI will have the option to do so in the Settings menu. We encourage you to make this switch at your convenience and start experiencing the enhanced accessibility features.

Keep an eye out for the blog and related headway updates.
