The way accounting professionals and clients manage financial information has changed significantly over the past few years. The rate at which businesses are migrating their workflows to the cloud is increasing rapidly and in 2016, the number of paid subscribers to QuickBooks Online surpassed 1.5 million.
Why are so many migrating to QuickBooks Online?
• QuickBooks Online is a true cloud-based application. Because it runs in a browser, users can access the company data from anywhere at any time. Multiple users of the same company account can be in different locations and easily work in the company at the same time.
• Access to data from multiple devices: computer, smartphone or tablet. The QuickBooks Online Mobile App for Android and IOS is included with QuickBooks Online subscriptions at no additional cost.
• Company data can be accessed from multiple operating systems, including Windows or Mac. This allows users of the same company data to use the platform they are most comfortable with. As long as the computer can run a supported browser and connect to the internet, you can access QuickBooks Online.
• All the data is hosted, backed up and secured by Intuit’s servers using 128 bit encryption. QuickBooks is updated frequently by the Intuit development team so you never have to install or update the program; it’s done for you behind the scenes.
