"LinkedCPA improves coordinations and
eases the management challenge by
providing secure 24/7/365 access to
corporate financial data anywhere, anytime."
|Intuit® Hosting Platform:
LinkedCPA is a hosting provider for Intuit®. We host the entire QuickBooks family of products, and tax
and other Intuit® add on services. We also host software that compliments the Intuit family of products.
Our servers are designed to take full advantage of the many Intuit features. You and your clients will have
access 24/7/365 through our web portal, using our LinkedCP Management Software.
Clients may request that we host software, but it will be tested to verify that it does not disrupt the integrity
of our servers or performance. We welcome all software suggestions that are Intuit compatible. We find that
a great suggestion often benefits more than one client!
Included in your monthly fee are Microsoft Excel, PDF Split-Merge and Open Office, an Office 2007
compatible software solution. Microsoft Office 2007 is available for an additional fee. You will have full
back up and security. We use Symantec's® Data Protection Network.
Take control of your client’s data by storing it on our secure servers. Realtime Document Management
means you can move, copy and delete documents from your systems to our servers by simply uploading
through our upload application, or through our mapped drive system. You can control folder structures for
each client or create a set of control folders that are used for every client. Plus you now have access to
your client’s documents from anywhere you have internet access.
All data is backed up nightly and saved for seven years. You can go to bed at night confident that your
data is secure.
Administrators, team members and clients have direct access to accounts and files from each individual
desktop. No need to sign in to the web. Manage client data by assigning clients to specific team members.
Only the administrator and the chosen team member will receive a client’s uploaded data.
LinkedCPA enables the administrator to monitor tech support issues, uploads, downloads, file changes and
notification each time a client gains access to his or her files. Administrators can add, edit and delete client
data, reassign accountants and run reports directly from their own desktop. Adding a new client is as easy
as filling out a form. LinkedCPA software is sent immediately to the new client.
LinkedCPA notifies team members immediately when there is a client upload. The team member can open
documents directly from the desktop without logging in to the website and immediately do analysis, run
reports and follow up on any issues. Reports can be sent directly to clients using the LinkedCPA system.
Team members can follow progress on any technical support issues.
LinkedCPA provides each client immediate access to his or her accounting files and enables them to know
when a file has been uploaded. Clients have immediate access to all reports and other documents sent by
their Team Member. If the administrator makes the service available, clients can tell if their assigned team
member is present. Clients can track progress on any technical support issues.
Clients will know immediately when financial statements, reports, payroll or other information is available and
they can gain access to it with one click. Notification arrives in their desktop tray. No more need for an extra
email to alert clients when something has been sent. Information can be read online, printed and saved on
the client computer. Access to all files is a simple click away all of the time. If the client is out of the office,
he or she has access through the website.

**Due to stipulations set forth by Intuit®, if you are using our login feature on your website, the words,

one fails. With data clustering, data is replicated to a secondary server creating two sets
of live data in case one server fails.
