Moving from QuickBooks Desktop to Online Before the End of the Year

You have a great client with outdated software. And by outdated, I mean that it doesn’t sync in real-time, it’s on a server and you can’t access the data remotely. You would like to switch that client to QuickBooks Online. You’ve been suggesting this for at least two years. Does this sound familiar? Your clients knows he needs to change software, but it’s never a good time. Guess what?
