17 Nov QuickBooks Upgrade Service
For a monthly fee of $29.95 additional features are available. In addition to the free service functionality, below is a list of some of the expanded capabilities with the upgraded service:
Access the complete desktop – this means that the version of QuickBooks does not matter; in fact the client does not even need to use QuickBooks for their accounting software because it is possible to access any software the client has installed. By choosing “Request Desktop Control” there is no need to request specific permission for each software application to be accessed.
Remote Printing – with no additional set up required, when printing while using remote access, there is an additional printer that appears on the clients print dialog box, click on print, and a print dialog box will appear on the accountant’s screen to permit printing to the accountant’s computer. This feature is extremely helpful when printing a report makes the discussion easier, bank reconciliation procedures are being completed, work paper documentation, etc.
File Transfer – with permission, this feature will allow the accountant to transfer the data file to the machine or network they are working on by clicking on the Access Anywhere button.
Unattended remote access – for those clients that require regular access from the accountant, or the accountant prefers to work on the file “after hours,” a limited number of computers can be set up to permit unattended remote access. This eliminates the back and forth between the client and accountant. As long as the correct user name and password are entered, access will be granted.
