The QuickBooks integration is provided by eBridge. The customers are bi-directional. Opportunities in sales force feed directly into QuickBooks as pending invoices. And product information flows from QuickBooks into salesforce.

For many salesforce.com users, the integration provided by eBridge is backwards. The information needs to flow from QuickBooks into the contact management data base. ACCOUNTiGRATE has developed a tool that will provide just that: opportunities down to the product (i.e. item) level imported in as “closed” based on the date and invoice number in QuickBooks.
