Alternative Solutions

Thanks for your article Jen!

It has been our discovery that many people would love to have the cloud provide a resource for them rather than having the cloud dictate their life. Based on the increased cost, reliance on the internet speed/connection/web server reliability and in some cases, reduced functionality, many people we encounter are opposed to moving their financial data completely to the cloud. That doesn't mean cloud hosted solutions are bad, it just means some clients would like an alternative.

I believe that the primary objective should always be to match the appropriate tool with the client. In some cases, that tool may be a hosted product like QBO or alike. In other cases, they may want to keep the desktop look and feel but require a hosted solution to achieve their objectives. If they prefer to work entirely in their local environment but experience the best attributes of the cloud, they could even look at sharing solutions like Qbox. All I am saying is that we shouldn't push our clients to use something that they may not be ready to use or something that doesn't best meet their needs. There are so many options and alternatives out there, the cloud may be the best tool for them or it may not.
