QuickBooks cloud hosting services make sense for a small business today
INDUSTRY ACCEPTED PRACTICE
The practice of accessing your QuickBooks account data file using a 3rd party service or cloud server has finally been accepted as an alternative to the costly expense of building and maintaining IT infrastructure. “Hosting” QuickBooks desktop means that a hosting service installs and manages the QuickBooks software and the company data files on their own cloud-based servers. With a cloud/hosted virtual desktop server, you gain access to your company file from any PC, Mac, iPad, or mobile device 24/7 in a multi user environment.
As your business grows, more users will likely need access to the company QuickBooks data. Businesses with multiple locations or a mobile workforce find that centralized access to data allows users to function as though they were all in the same office. Being able to access the QuickBooks file via the Internet allows users to work in a single company file anywhere anytime.
ELIMINATES IT COSTS
By choosing a remote hosting option, you don’t incur any upfront hardware or software costs (other than the cost of QuickBooks licenses). Instead, you pay the QuickBooks hosting company a monthly fee per user to take care of things for you. Most providers will manage the data, software updates, upgrades, and equipment, as well as provide first level technical support their clients.
BETTER USER EXPERIENCE
Users experience more efficient and effective collaboration with simultaneous access available to multiple users. Accounting professionals can work on client files seamlessly sharing data with the client even as the client may be working in the system.
SAFE & SECURE
Cloud/hosting service providers follow stringent security measures to ensure full safety for your QuickBooks data file. Most data centers provide 24/7 security and extreme care in disaster planning such as fire detection, backups, diesel generators and biometric security.
