It looks like long-time hosting partner Right Networks is in a deal with Intuit whereby tax pros that use ProSeries and Lacerte can have the desktop products hosted in the cloud.
With this new offering, tax professionals can access Lacerte and ProSeries with virtually any device at any time. Multi-user access allows firms of all sizes to simplify staff collaboration across multiple sites in addition to giving employees the option to work remotely.
Tax pros can also have more flexible storage options for tax data in their current ProSeries and Lacerte workflow with no additional installations, servers, backups or maintenance. Automatic backups will have the data protected and restored, and tax pros have access to the latest product available.
The data is protected with enterprise firewalls, antivirus, encryption and off-site data storage to prevent data loss. In addition, the data is automatically backed up nightly and stored for 90 days.
“By partnering with Intuit ProConnect to integrate our cloud hosting platform with Lacerte and ProSeries, we have expanded the reach of the cloud’s flexibility, security and connected collaboration to tax professionals and firms handling returns of all sizes and complexities,” Joel Hughes, CEO of Right Networks said in a statement. “The increased productivity delivered by our HyperRight platform helps firms scale more quickly and efficiently.”
Right Networks' cloud hosting platform installation is handled by Intuit’s engineering team and the no-contract monthly pricing for both ProSeries and Lacerte is flexible for seasonal workers.
