With the end of 2010 fast approaching, it is time to start thinking about taxes and investing in bookkeeping software for the upcoming year.
This doesn’t have to be a painful process. A simple solution is hosted QuickBooks; this service is very popular among businesses, CPAs, bookkeepers and financial companies.
What is hosted QuickBooks?
It is a full version of the QuickBooks software installed on a server in a data center. With the proper credentials you can log in and remotely use your own secure copy of QuickBooks from any computer – Mac or PC. Because installation and updates are done by the data center it is extremely quick and easy to set up and get started with QuickBooks.
Having your existing or new QuickBooks software hosted on our platform enables “QuickBooks file collaboration on-the-go” and also permits you to have simultaneous collaboration for a maximum of 20 users, depending on the license. The anytime, anywhere access allows for outsourced bookkeeping, easy sharing with your accountants, remote offices, and telecommuting employees. This technology can transform you from a stationary user to a connected, yet independent operator.
Hosted QuickBooks is different than QuickBooks Online. When you use hosted QuickBooks you are accessing the full version of QuickBooks Pro, Premier, or Enterprise. The online version is an entirely different piece of software and pared down from the complete versions. For example, the 1099 form—a very common document used in the accounting industry—is only available as a premium feature of QuickBooks Online, yet comes standard with every version of hosted QuickBooks. Additionally, hosted QuickBooks has other advanced features such as opening multiple windows, sales tracking and inventory tracking.
Using hosted QuickBooks provides the full functionality of the software regardless of where you use it and how many people are collaborating.
