QuickBooks Hosting in the Cloud
Intuit QuickBooks software is easily the most popular and widely-used accounting solution for businesses and professionals. It is highly intuitive and works well for small businesses, medium businesses and large enterprises as well. Choosing to have your QuickBooks software hosted in the cloud enhances the software by allowing your business a new level of affordability, agility, efficiency and security.
QuickBooks hosting gives you the unique advantage of being able to access and edit your company files from any location using any device without any requirements other than an active internet connection. This means that no matter where you are in the world you will always have quick access to your data with the ability to edit, run reports, or use any of the normal functions you would typically use in your company’s office. You will no longer be chained to a desk, but will be able to work while waiting in that doctors office, or while finishing up a project while on vacation.
Edit Files in Real-Time
With QuickBooks in the cloud, all changes made are updated in real-time. This eliminates the necessity of file sharing with co-workers and clients while providing your business with unlimited flexibility. When you edit the file, any other person logged into the hosted QuickBooks cloud environment will see these edits as happen. When you collaborate, there will no longer be a risk of overwriting each other and losing hours of work. Insynq’s hosting service offers a level of communication between financial professionals and their clients that was previously impossible while helping to alleviate confusion and eliminate mistakes.
Save Money with Managed IT Services
Hosting QuickBooks in the cloud saves businesses of all sizes a great deal of money. When adopting the cloud through a hosting provider, you are gaining the benefits of managed IT services. This means that no longer must you spend the money needed to purchase and maintain expensive servers and in-house hardware. All of this is done for you by InsynQ’s team of experienced and certified engineers.
With QuickBooks hosting from InsynQ you will have a team of professionals maintaining your IT department for you. You will never need to pay professionals to update your server or deal with time-consuming upgrades and data backups for your sensitive accounting information. This is all included as part of the service with hosted QuickBooks in the cloud. Peace of mind is priceless, knowing your information is backed up can provide relief from the worry of not saving your work, or of your computer failing and your hours of input suddenly being gone.
Immaculate Security and Data Protection
Data security is often the biggest concern professionals have when looking to move their sensitive information to the cloud, and understandably so. That is why InsynQ has implemented some of the most strict security measures in the industry that go well beyond typical standards. Not only is it important to ensure businesses that their data is safe, but the data protection offers peace-of-mind for the financial professionals should disaster ever strike. If your business ever falls victim to fire, burglary, or any other type of disaster, you will have great comfort knowing your hosted Quickbooks cloud data is all safe and secure in an off-site location.
The data centers housing your hosted QuickBooks cloud applications and data are protected and monitored using the highest level encryption software in a SSAE 16 (formerly SAS 70 Type II) facility. The power supplies are redundant and the servers are monitored 24/7 by security certified on-site technicians. Data is backed up both on and off-site in a secure manner ensuring that no files will ever be lost. Virus scans are performed constantly and software upgrades are all tested and installed by professionals. All of this is provided at no extra charge as part of our QuickBooks hosting service in order to alleviate any worries for businesses looking to move their QuickBooks to the cloud.

QuickBooks Online vs QuickBooks Cloud Hosting
There is frequent confusion surrounding Intuit’s QuickBooks Online and the differences between that and adopting a service provider. In a nutshell, QuickBooks Online does offer the same anywhere, anytime access as InsynQ’s QuickBooks cloud hosting services would. However, it also reduces functionality and is a watered-down version of the powerful accounting software.
Quickbooks Online is primarily for entry-level users or businesses looking for a very basic version of QuickBooks to access from a web browser. You will not have the ability to implement the numerous add-ons available. You will also lose out on one of the primary benefits of QuickBooks hosting: your virtual desktop. With the virtual desktop you are able to not only run QuickBooks in the cloud, but your basic productivity tools such as Microsoft Office are fully functional as well. Therefore, adopting a service provider who offers QuickBooks in the cloud allows for a higher level of productivity in a completely virtual environment.
QuickBooks Cloud Licensing
Insynq hosts every current edition of QuickBooks available, including QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Enterprise, and every iteration in between. If you currently own a software license you are ready to move to the QuickBooks cloud. Businesses that do not yet own a license are welcome to rent one from Insynq or purchase their own, making QuickBooks hosting instantly affordable due to the low cost of setup. Not a computer whiz? We have that covered for you as well. Setup is easy and Insynq’s experienced support team is available and ready to walk you through the process. If you would rather do it on your own, Insynq’s support site is well equipped with the resources you need to get started immediately.

Mac Users Adopting QuickBooks Cloud Hosting
Quickbooks for Mac is well known as being a problematic, watered-down version of the esteemed accounting software suite. A quick perusal of the internet and Intuit’s forums will display a myriad of complaints and dissatisfaction with the Macintosh version of QuickBooks. With QuickBooks cloud hosting from InsynQ, Mac users can now access a fully functional version of QuickBooks running on a Windows virtual desktop from their Mac. The process is just as easy as if you were using a PC and runs just as smoothly. QuickBooks hosting allows Mac users access to all of the features of QuickBooks with none of the added problems.
