Hi

I'm using quickbook 2009 and have hard time using mutiple computer with it
I was wondering if upgrading to 2012 would help

But I read a lot of poor review

So what is the most user friendly sofware for a small business (bookkeeping, invoice, inventory etc ...)

Thanks

Do you have set to Multi-user mode?
Did you run the quickbooks firewall and connectivity tool?
Did you setup the one computer as the host of the company file?

You said several computers, all in one office, or different places?

You could just keep it on one computer, install LogMeIn Free, that way you can always get to it. The only issue is if someone is using that computer you would have to wait. Quickbooks also has an online edition, but I am not sure if that fits your company needs.

Sorry for the late answer , jamed at work.

I look into dropbox and skydrive but I don't want too and any extra montly fees on my business, too many already ;-)

I have an old desktop that maybe could do the job as a server but I will need to learn how  to set it up .

On the other and I own some domain name with web space, could I use those spaces on the webhosting server ? Would that be easier that way ? Could I set up an automatic file save on this webhosting space from quickbook ?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

I've been using Quickbooks since 1999 and have upgraded every few years, The 2012 version configured properly in your office should work very well. If multiple users need simultaneous access, then you need a multi user license and should keep it in multi-user mode. if only one user neds it at a time, then you could use Logmein to allow each user to log into that pc (if they are remote) and enter their data.

With my last copy that I purchased from Amazon, it came with 90 Days of free tech support which you may benefit from.

Hope this helps!

You can also download the 2012 version and use it for 30 days as a trial.
