Using the AqBanking module in GnuCash, we can directly poll all of our bank accounts simultaneously and automatically download the transactions directly into GnuCash for processing. We are able to poll about 15-20 bank accounts in under 2 minutes.
This saves a huge amount of time in downloading and importing individual statements per account, multiple times per day.
We want to migrate completely to OpenERP and continue to be able to completely eliminate the bank statement import step and update all our statements often, with one click.
As GnuCash is open source and has an import module into OpenERP, and as AqBanking is integrated into GnuCash and is also open source, it seems a natural progression that AqBanking could be integrated into OpenERP.
Does anyone have an insight how this can be achieved - perhaps there is an alternative we are unaware of?
