There are certain limitations that exist with the QuickBooks Desktop that can restrict the accounting professionals from achieving the maximum potential, for example:
• No Remote Access
• No real-time team collaboration
• Sharing & exchanging files is inconvenient
• Lack of automation in updates
However, all these limitations above can be mitigated using the Hosted QuickBooks. Here is why you should choose QuickBooks Hosting.
• Multiple user access
• Real-time change tracking
• Easy file sharing with unlimited users
• Flexibility with resources
• Reduced local IT expenses
• Better add-on integration
• Backed up against accidental data loss

QuickBooks Hosting is definitely a worthy choice. Although QuickBooks desktop has been people’s favorite for a very long time, it does has some limitations as it does not offer flexibility and real-time collaboration.
However, with QuickBooks Hosting, you can access your application and data at anytime from any device and collaborate with multiple users to work on the same file simultaneously in real-time. It also reduces the overall operational costs as it eliminates the need of purchasing and maintaining expensive IT infrastructure.

QuickBooks Desktop version and QuickBooks Online both have their pros and cons. QuickBooks desktop is restricted to a single desktop or system, while the online version has limited accounting-related features.
QuickBooks hosting on the cloud will provide all the QB desktop features with the ability to access the data from anywhere at any time.
Apart from accessibility features, it offers numerous other benefits.
1. Reduces the cost of IT infrastructure
2. Easy and secure collaboration with clients and colleagues
3. Compatible with third-party application’s integration
4. Backup and Disaster Recovery
5. Automatic Updates and Upgrades of the QuickBooks
Therefore, I personally believe, it is a better choice than other QB alternatives.

The type of QuickBooks you would be needing depend upon your business requirements. Some can accomplish their work with online version while others need desktop version hosted on-premises. For more demanding and larger businesses QuickBooks Enterprise will get the job done. There are other business-specific versions in the QuickBooks desktop too.
On the other hand, QuickBooks cloud hosting provides the ability to install any desktop version on a remote server. This can be accessed by the employees of the company to keep track. It provides data security, redundancy, automatic backups and scalability on the go.
If your financial data is important to your organization and help your make data-driven decisions, it is strongly recommended to go for cloud-hosted solutions.
