Intuit’s official website supporting the Authorized Host for QuickBooks program is now live. The new site located at IntuitHostingProgram.com, provides information about Intuit’s QuickBooks hosting programs and providers, and outlines the program benefits for customers and the hosts that serve them.
Everyone, it seems, is adopting outsourced IT and cloud computing models and Intuit is among those companies that recognize that one size does not fit all when it comes to serving business – whether it’s software or infrastructure under discussion. When “QuickBooks” and “cloud” are mentioned in the same sentence, most people are likely to think about the QuickBooks Online Edition, which is Intuit’s version of QuickBooks accounting software that was developed specifically for the web. But QuickBooks Online isn’t the only QuickBooks “flavor” finding success in the cloud. QuickBooks desktop editions are making their way into more online and hosted deliveries, giving customers the ability to run the business and grow the organization with the software they’ve already invested in, but running the apps in the cloud.
