If you are a QuickBooks Online user, you probably recently received an email from Intuit stating your cost of using the online version of their application is about to increase. QB Online is now starting at $50 a month per user and could get as high as $180 a month per user!
In the past, one of the benefits of using QuickBooks Online over hosting QuickBooks Desktop was the pricing was more affordable. Thus, you could forgive QuickBooks Online’s lack of features and limitations at the lower price compared to QuickBooks Desktop. Now though, that’s no longer the case. With the announcement of this price increase by Intuit, you can now host a full desktop version of QuickBooks for nearly the same price!
Which Version of QuickBooks is Best for Me?
QuickBooks Online, however, is a cloud-based product created and managed solely by Intuit. To access the software, you log in through a web browser rather than launching an application from a desktop shortcut. As a result, this cloud-based version offers a different user experience and features than what you may be used to in the desktop version.
A Hosted QuickBooks desktop application allows you to take advantage of every feature QuickBooks offers, all while still accessing it from anywhere. Hosting your QuickBooks with Summit Hosting lets you access your software from a cloud server, 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 exactly as you would from a local desktop.
If you want the features of a QuickBooks Desktop application with the benefits of a dedicated server at an affordable price, QuickBooks cloud hosting is the way to go. A full-fledged QuickBooks application can grow just as quickly as your business does, and now it’s more worth it than ever to explore outside the limits of QuickBooks Online.
