Accounting software, Office 365 and new server

Last Modified: 2015-03-08
I am currently using a VPS that I use to work on Quickbooks with my 3 employees that all access it from their own home offices for my bookkeeping business.  I am going to be using an additional accounting software, Connected and have been informed that in a cloud setting I cannot use it easily with Office 365, i.e. if I wanted to send a report to Excel from Connected I would have to save it as a text file, then open Excel and open the saved text file.

I'm thinking of moving to a server using either Windows Server 2012 Essentials or Windows Server 2012 Standard and would like to use Office 365 but be able to use it with the Connected software without constantly saving files.  Would this work in either O/S, do I have use a specific Office 365 subscription and will I have issues with having 3 to 4 remote users? O/S and hardware suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
