I had a discussion with a small business client today that wants to outsource their services that we are providing on site presently. The reason here is to remove the larger upfront cost for hardware and software. No problem, there are lots of services available toward this end. Since a key tool that this client uses presently is Quickbooks - I figured I needed to know what the cost is for Hosted Quickbooks. It's now much later in the same day and I still haven't found out what the pricing is because guess what - the Intuit website is DOWN!
I guess there may be other costs associated with premises based versus hosted besides the hard dollar costs - like maybe utility costs.
