I'd say: some Windows Server (that's an OS) machine with the possibility to remotely login in a VPN. Don't do this yourself, but find a company that does this for you.
Discuss with them if it's better to have the server in your office or in some data center in the cloud. if the cloud, let them take care of setting up that also.
A very good alternative (I'd even say: a very much preferred solution) is to use some an accounting package that is offered as a cloud service by some company, in stead of installing your own accounting software on your own (physical or virtual server).
An example I happen to know is http://www.exactonline.com/, but I'm sure there are many. Maybe even the company that wrote the program you use at the moment offers such.
Hi All, Good morning. My name is Nathan and I am new to this website.
I have a small business and accounting practice just started 6 months ago. I need a server and now sure how best and cheap to set up as my business is still small. I have one employee who is abroad and I want him to get access to my software in my main computer plus client's file so that he can complete work.
I would be grateful if some can recommend what is the best way to roganise this. Someone recommend WD personal cloud which I bought but wasted money as they were unable to access my accounting and tax software using thi device.
I look forward to some feedback and suggestion
