QuickHost Cloud Hosting for QuickBooks

QuickHost Cloud Hosting for QuickBooks

Ledger Systems offers QuickHost, a cloud-based hosting service to allow your company to work with a Desktop version of QuickBooks. Accessible over the Internet using a dedicated Virtual Private Network (VPN), you can access your QuickBooks from anywhere, anytime. And the number of concurrent users is only limited by the QuickBooks licensing you choose.

QuickHost Cloud Hosting vs QuickBooks Online

Although they sound similar, QuickHost Cloud Hosting and QuickBooks Online are very different services.

QuickHost Cloud Hosting lets you access your QuickBooks software from a virtual server or workstation, where all your data and files are safely stored and operated. With a unique username and password, you can log in to your remote desktop from anywhere, access your data, and use the software just like you would from a local desktop.

QuickBooks Online, on the other hand, is a cloud-based product created and managed solely by Intuit, the maker of QuickBooks. This software is accessed by logging in using a web browser and only supports QuickBooks Online, meaning QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier and QuickBooks Enterprise are not compatible. This cloud-based version also offers a very different user experience and features than what you may be used to in the desktop version.

How does QuickHost Cloud Hosting work?

Your choice of QuickBooks version is installed on a remote virtual workstation, which you can access using the secure login credentials using any internet-connected device. Features and functions of QuickBooks on the cloud remain exactly the same as on your desktop.

You can install other software (such as Office, Acrobat, etc.) on your remote workstation just as you would to a local desktop.
