Cut Costs by Switching to Hosted QuickBooks

Cut Cost QuickBooks Blog

Accountants with locally-installed versions of QuickBooks can save a lot of money by signing up for Hosted QuickBooks from IronOrbit. With hosted QuickBooks, accountants don’t need to purchase any servers, storage devices, or desktops PCs for their office. Accountants also avoid the upfront costs of QuickBooks software licenses with QuickBooks hosting. Additionally, they don’t have to spend any of their own time protecting, updating, or fixing the software. Instead, an accountant only needs an Internet-connected device such as a laptop, tablet, or smartphone to be able to access and utilize their IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks.

QuickBooks Hosting from IronOrbit works like this:

-IronOrbit installs the QuickBooks software on a server in one of our datacenters. We can host any version of QuickBooks, including QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier, and QuickBooks Enterprise. Though hosted solutions are sometimes stripped-down or “lite” versions of their locally-installed counterparts, IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks (whether Pro, Premier, or Enterprise) is the same as the desktop version, with all the same features and capabilities.

-The accountants let IronOrbit know how many users and how much storage space they will need. The hosted QuickBooks will be built and deployed according to these specifications as quickly as possible. There’s no need to purchase QuickBooks licenses separately; IronOrbit will handle the software licenses, as well as apply updates to QuickBooks when needed.

-Accountants access their IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks via the Internet. Hosted QuickBooks looks and performs the same as a locally-installed version of QuickBooks.

-IronOrbit’s Orbital Security System will protect the hosted QuickBooks from malware and hackers using firewalls, antivirus software, data encryption, intrusion detection and prevention systems, and content filtering.

In addition to cutting the hardware, personnel, and licensing costs of a locally-installed version of QuickBooks, hosted QuickBooks from IronOrbit also saves money by:

-Providing superior protection from costly malware infections and data breaches

-Working around-the-clock to prevent outages and uphold our 100% uptime guarantee

-Maximizing the productivity of accountants by letting them access their web-based hosted QuickBooks from anywhere and at any time; and also by permitting them to focus on completing their work rather than monitoring and maintaining their IT infrastructure

-Providing the scalability to allow accountants to add users and storage capacity to their hosted QuickBooks at any time
