Primarily, there are four ways by which accounting file can be accessed namely Offline Accounting File Based, Remote PC Access Based, Hosted Software Based, and Online Software Based methods.
Offline Accounting File Based:
The accountant works on the backup copy of the accounting file and once the work has been completed the file is uploaded back to the server.
Remote PC Access Based:
The accountant connects to the clients’ PC using a remote desktop access service, GoToMyPC.com, LogMeIn, Windows Remote Desktop, Citrix WebEx or Secure VPN connection to work on software installed at client’s computer. This requires no expensive remote access software.
Online Software Based:
In this method, the accounting software is a web-based version. So the accountant logs in to the online accounting software (e.g. Quickbooksonline Realpage -Onesite, Appfolio, Yardi) and updates the books and logs out.
Hosted Software Based:
This version is a modified version of the remote access based version. The hosting of the software can be in client office LANs or in third party hosting service providers such as Personable.com, Smartsheet.com.
