A few months ago we posted an article about why we think the desktop version of QuickBooks Pro is still a better option for most design firms over QuickBooks Online.
Recently we’ve had a few clients opt to have their QuickBooks Pro file hosted on a “Virtual PC” in the cloud. There are several advantages to doing this:
It allows the owner, bookkeeper and outside account the ability to log into QuickBooks Pro from their work computers or home computers.
If a firm only has Mac computers, they can use their Mac computers to log into the virtual PC and run QuickBooks Pro.
You don’t have to purchase a PC just for running QuickBooks.
Below is an image of a Mac desktop running a Virtual PC window with QuickBooks open.
Using QuickBooks Pro on a virtual PC is no more difficult than running it on a local PC and the cost is very reasonable. And to make it a simple turnkey process, we’ll setup the virutal PC so all you have to do is log into your QuickBooks file.
If you’d like to know more about this option, please contact us.
