A Busy New Year in Store: Major Promotion from QuickBooks, Shaking Hands with TouchCloud™, and Passing an Audit with Flying Colors

At Infinitely Virtual, 2014 is getting off to a brisk start, with a special promotion from Intuit, a compelling new product, and the peace of mind that comes with offering the highest level of security in the industry.

-In what may be a first for Intuit’s QuickBooks, the company is offering — absolutely free — three months of license rental for new QuickBooks Accountant 2013 and 2014 hosted subscriptions. That translates to $56.97per license, based on the monthly license fee of $18.99. Subscriptions must be initiated between now and March 15 and the promotion applies only to users new to hosted QBA. If you’re not familiar with QuickBooks Accountant, here’s a risk-free way to get to know the product. If you’re an existing QuickBooks Accountant customer, there’s no better time to migrate to QBA in the cloud. Just email billing@infinitelyvirtual.com to add it to your plan.

-Users in small and midsize businesses have wanted to be able to run their Windows apps in the cloud, and share them with coworkers –and now they can, thanks to TouchCloud™ from Infinitely Virtual. TouchCloud combines Windows 2012 Server and Windows 8 or 8.1 touch-screen capabilities, automatically touch-enabling all Windows 8/8.1 applications in the cloud. TouchCloud shatters the notion that cloud computing is vague and amorphous, and not really anything you can touch.
TouchCloud is all about mobility. Any tablet or mobile app, literally anywhere in the world, can take advantage of it. With TouchCloud, it’s easy to walk around and touch your windows apps. And speaking of QuickBooks, TouchCloud is ideally suited to applications like QuickBooks, Peachtree Accounting, centralized MS Office, ERP packages and more.
All you need is one of Infinitely Virtual’s virtual terminal server products and a Windows 8 or 8.1 touch-enabled application and you’re good to go. You can run a remote desktop client and operate it with a finger or digitized pen. Touch-enabled apps can be used in the cloud with the other apps you’re sharing.

-Finally, the SSAE (Standards for Attestation Engagements) No. 16 Type II audit is among the most rigorous auditing standards for hosting companies – and we at Infinitely Virtual are delighted to share the news that we passed the 2014 audit hands down. What does this mean to you? That, per the audit, you’re receiving the highest level of service and reliability attainable for a virtual server hosting company. SSAE compliance means that we offer, no pun, a host of capabilities that small and midsize business cannot do without: SSL capability, enterprise-level, application level protection, hardware firewall, IP-restricted FTP, managed backups with 28-day retention, advanced monitoring and multi-level intrusion prevention.

The better to keep you up and running, 24x7x365. Happy New Year.
