What you need to know about QuickBooks Desktop discontinuing and some alternative options for you and your business.

QuickBooks has made the decision to discontinue QuickBooks Desktop for their customers. QuickBooks has advised that the discontinuation is due to the Desktop platform increasing the risk of customers using out-of-date and non-compliant software and missing important updates. 

This is one of the many reasons why moving to a Cloud Hosted system has never been so important. Now is a good time to consider alternative business software options.

If you’re a growing business in need of a finance and business solution that will: 

  1. Scale with your business as it grows
  2. Finally achieve inventory control and automate planning and procurement.
  3. Integrate with other business software.
  4. Provide detailed management reporting and visibility.

It’s time to start discussing your options. Some users are migrating to QuickBooks Online. But is QuickBooks Desktop the best decision for your business?  There are several affordable solutions to help automate and control every business process of your business. 

There are so many reasons why business owners should take this opportunity to assess and evaluate their current business software requirements. Here’s why so many business owners and CEOs are making the switch to alternate business software.
