A QuickBooks production server provides the key to a high performance QuickBooks multi-user environment. Isolating QuickBooks company file(s) on a QuickBooks production server creates the advantage of keeping and hosting QuickBooks company files in a safe, secure and robust fashion. A QuickBooks production server prevents any damage that a compromised desktop computer can do to your company file(s).
The QuickBooks production server also performs automated tasks within QuickBooks and other “QuickBooks add on” softwares such as automated nightly offsite backups or automated order downloads from your website to QuickBooks. A QuickBooks production server can automatically keep each of your QuickBooks desktop computers updated to the latest QuickBooks version.
In some QuickBooks environments, a QuickBooks production server will host the entire QuickBooks application so that no QuickBooks software need be installed on any desktop computer.
