If you’ve never used QuickBooks hosting, it’s best described as software that can be used for accounting. The software is hosted on a cloud which can be accessed from any location at any time, making it very easy to collaborate and work while travelling.
QuickBooks hosting has so many advantages that it’s hard to start listing them one by one. For the sake of efficiency (something that QuickBooks is all about), the first thing to consider will be how it enables global usage. If you’re unsure what global usage means, think of the following scenario. Imagine that you’re an accountant at your company (if you’re reading this, you most likely are) and you’ve decided that you’d like to go to some place that’s more than a couple of hours away from your home for the weekend. Now you’re there, far from home, and something goes wrong with the company’s books. It’s an urgent error, but you’re stuck far from your workplace. With QuickBooks, this wouldn’t be a problem at all. QuickBooks would negate this problem because of the fact that it can be accessed from any location with an internet connection and the necessary login details. After you’ve accessed the files from wherever you are, you can quickly solve the problem and then resume your weekend. Thanks to QuickBooks a possible disaster was prevented and you don’t have to cut your vacation short in order to go fix the problem. Win-Win!
This feature can also be used for collaboration. Staff members can access the same file simultaneously from different devices and locations and work together on a single project. In addition, QuickBooks servers are also very secure and can’t be hacked or accessed by unwanted visitors. QuickBooks also performs regular backups which prevents any important data from being lost.
