There is a rumor going around that QuickBooks Desktop is being discontinued. The rumor is that if you want to stay with QuickBooks you have to move to QuickBooks Online.
This is 100% not true. QuickBooks Desktop has a huge following so you don’t have to worry about it going away.
If you prefer QuickBooks Desktop but want remote access capability, you can get it by getting your QuickBooks hosted. To explain what hosting is, and where you can purchase that service I've included information and a link in my free white paper titled, Remote Access Options For QuickBooks.
To get to the white paper, go to my website -> Public Relations -> Free Download. I’ll put a live link here: Remote Access Options for QuickBooks
I personally prefer QuickBooks Enterprise (Desktop) software but support both versions. Clients who have been with Quickbooks Desktop for years are staying with it. Newer clients to QuickBooks tend to go with QuickBooks Online so I know and support both.
