Customizable QuickBooks Hosting

All IronOrbit hosted solutions are customizable, including our Hosted QuickBooks solutions. Aspects of our QuickBooks Hosting solutions that can be customized include:

  • Users (the amount of)
  • Storage (the amount of)
  • Security policies
  • Authorization methods
  • Access policies

Our clients also have the ability to select the version of QuickBooks that they want IronOrbit to host for them. IronOrbit can host any current version of QuickBooks, including QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier, QuickBooks Enterprise, and QuickBooks Accountant.

We can also host any past edition of any QuickBooks version (QuickBooks Pro 2011, QuickBooks Pro 2012, etc.). Just in case a business prefers the features or interface of that edition of the software.

Finally, IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting solutions are also compatible with all of the plugins for onsite versions of QuickBooks. IronOrbit users can use these plugins to add payroll, inventory, CRM, payment processing, POS, and e-commerce features to their Hosted QuickBooks deployments, thereby customizing them even further.

The customizability of a QuickBooks Hosting solution is especially important to businesses with existing onsite deployments of QuickBooks that want to be able to migrate the application to a hosted IT infrastructure without having to switch versions or lose any important features or settings.

IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting and Enterprise QuickBooks Hosting solutions, for example, are so customizable that many businesses’ onsite versions of QuickBooks can be transferred to our hosting infrastructure without a single change.

Many hosting providers, in contrast, can’t host every version of QuickBooks; don’t offer the full desktop versions of the software; don’t support plugins; or don’t allow the users, storage, security policies, authorization methods, or access policies of a QuickBooks deployment to be customized. It’s both more difficult and less advantageous to switch from an onsite deployment to a hosted version of QuickBooks with hosting providers that don’t support customization.

Meanwhile, other benefits of the customizability of IronOrbit QuickBooks Hosting include:

  • More control over security and access policies. Businesses are able to choose the security and access policies and authorization methods of their IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks deployments. They can opt for an ultra-secure deployment (requiring strong passwords, requiring that passwords be changed every month, limiting access to approved IP addresses, etc.) or a deployment that’s as easy to access as possible (no password requirements, automatic access for approved IP addresses, etc.).
  • More control over costs. In order to reduce their costs, IronOrbit clients can deduct from their QuickBooks deployment’s users and storage capacity or downgrade to a more cost-efficient version of QuickBooks.
  • More scalability. Any amount of users and storage capacity can be added to an IronOrbit Hosted QuickBooks deployment at any time. As a result, it’s easy to provide new employees with access to the application, and there’s never any danger of running out of space for the software’s inventory, CRM, or financial recordkeeping data.

In addition to QuickBooks, IronOrbit can also host any other application (Microsoft Exchange, the Microsoft Office Suite, Sage 50/Peachtree Accounting, CRMs, ERPs, EHRs/EMRs, etc.) in a way that’s equally customizable, as part of our Application Hosting Services.

For QuickBooks Hosting or Application Hosting solutions that are highly customizable and scalable and that can be adjusted to be as secure, accessible, and cost-efficient as possible, businesses should contact IronOrbit at [email protected] or (888) 753-5060 and sign up for Hosted QuickBooks from us today!
