Hi

I am wondering what is involved in moving from Reckon Accounts Desktop to an online version

Can all the file be transferred or is it a start as new application from scratch?

    File just gets uploaded and you carry on as normal, what version are you using now?

    @Janine Dickson Kris is correct - Hosted is actually the Reckon Accounts "Enterprise" version 😀

    Thanks Kris that sound good as we are finding remote logging in to our onsite server to our onsite Reckon very slow when working from home so are looking at other options. Other Programs we use are fine.

    We are using Accounts Enterprise Manufacturing and Wholesale Edition 2021

    You are in fact using the same version already I believe, the Hosted version is in fact Reckon Enterprise. But you should ring Reckon and confirm before you make any decisions

    Shaz is Accounts Enterprise Manufacturing and Wholesale Edition 2021 just the normal Reckon Enterprise?

    @Kris_Williams Yes, Premier & Enterprise have a range of industry Editions (or "flavours" lol) that can be installed - The different Editions just provide some additional industry options/reports - Hosted contains all these extras anyway, as default 😁

    I did think that was the case but didn’t want to overlook anything in my answer

    Thankyou - so sounds like it would be a relatively easy transition - appreciated - I will contact Reckon
