COVID-19 has presented several challenges to businesses and employees over the past few months. Some are taking this opportunity to look at their operations, partners, and procedures and upgrading or improving as needed to adapt to the current way of life, and to ensure their companies are set up for success no matter what the future brings.
Most small to mid-sized businesses are using QuickBooks to manage their finances. This is typically done with a single installation on a physical computer within the office environment. This setup/configuration can be problematic for a number of reasons.
- Is your data being regularly backed up?
- Is your workstation still running Windows 7, which has not been supported by Microsoft since early 2020?
- Is your antivirus software up to date?
- Is the version of Quickbooks in your environment still supported by Intuit?
- Who would assist you in addressing an issue should Quickbooks crash?
