Elucentra by far has a superior service in providing a cloud hosting solution for QuickBooks products among many other solutions. As many people will tell you, the QuickBooks Online solution is convenient and the desktop version of QuickBooks is powerful in its full functionality and reporting capabilities. So..... why not combine the power of both!!! Elucentra provide a conduit to host your QuickBooks desktop licensed software in a secure cloud environment with worry free backup and superfast server rendering. As a matter of fact, I was able to run a 2014 QuickBooks Enterprise connection with my Mac Air laptop using my hotspot connection on my cell phone while sitting in a Home Depot parking lot.
If I had any issues, I would typically send Elucentra an email and my problem was resolved within a few minutes. The support staff is friendly & personable.
As Chief Financial Officer for multiple companies I worked 1st hand with Elucentra to convert five separate software versions of QuickBooks that resided on 5 different city desktop locations all into one version of QuickBooks Enterprise. We were able to assign user access right for specific individuals to one or more databases as needed. I am able to view in real time all the accounting data from each location while still giving the localized accounting staff in remote cities the ability to do the daily accounting work. You don't have to be a large organization to reap the benefits of the online server environment. Go ahead and take that Caribbean vacation and login using a remote computer... you deserve a break.
With a little advanced notice they can have a new virtual server spun up for you in a few hours and import your backup QuickBooks file (depending on the size) within another hour or so of sending them the data file. To my knowledge they still support the month to month service commitment. So you can quit anytime, no questions asked. But believe me... once your on.... there will be no reason to get off. You will have a few questions during the first couple of weeks such as setting up the simple slave printers & setting up the invoice & reporting email system to use your current email server. Other than that it is a very simplistic and user friendly experience. Good luck on your remote number crunching in the mean time!
