FAQ about QuickBooks Desktop Hosting (Cloud Computing)

Isn’t there a remote access feature already built into QuickBooks?

Yes, In QuickBooks Premier Only - It has remote access feature as part of the software; however, only one user at a time may take control over one remote computer. A user must be physically present at each computer to set up a session. This is O.K. for training demos or financial presentations when speed is not important due to the lag time between pressing a key on the keyboard and waiting for the result to appear on the remote computer. Finally it is very expensive in labor cost to use it for remote bookkeeping.

QuickBooks Online does not have all the full features of QuickBooks desktop, but can't we install some web plug-ins? 

Some Missing QuickBooks Desktop Features - Are available through plug-ins if you have the time, skill and desire to maintain and update them; however many of them are not available.

What is the difference between your hosting service and using QuickBooks on my desktop or notebook?

None, No Difference - Because QuickBooks is hosted on a secure server, you will be using the same version of QuickBooks no matter where you login. And in some cases since you may see an increase in performance in your local computer since all the "heavy lifting" of QuickBooks is being done on a powerful server. Learn More...

What about printing and emailing from QuickBooks?

With your QuickBooks hosting provider, can I still get a physical copy of my files?

Yes! You can download your company file anytime to create a backup copy on your local computer. QuickBooks Online does not offer this service.
