whats New


Is the Cloud right for me?

 Many software companies are migrating to online versions of their offerings to provide anywhere/anytime/any device access for their clients.

QuickBooks is doing the same offering
• The traditional PC based QuickBooks Desktop in Pro, Premier, and Enterprise versions
• The new QuickBooks Online (QBO) in Essentials and Plus versions
The allure of "Online" or "Cloud Based" is very compelling BUT it is not the same product as the desktop version.
