Though small businesses may be slow to adopt cloud technology, the rest of the world is not. Given Intuit’s recent focus on cloud accounting, it certainly doesn’t surprise us that they are ending their remote access service. This was a popular feature, used mostly by small businesses, that would allow for their accountant to access their desktop QuickBooks accounting package from another computer.
As we’ve covered extensively on this blog, cloud computing has many positives for small businesses, especially when it comes to useful accounting package add-ons, extensions, or team collaboration. If you are a small business who is already using a service like QuickBooks Remote Access, you’re already on the path to cloud collaboration. Intuit offers easy desktop-to-cloud transfers, as does Xero.
If you’re a QuickBooks Remote Access lover, don’t panic. Here’s a quick overview of how easy a transition to cloud accounting can be!
