Anytime, Anywhere Access to QuickBooks & a Full Virtual Office

What is the name of your business and URL?

Swizznet – www.swizznet.com

A brief synopsis of the website / application

We provide online access to the full desktop software versions of QuickBooks Pro, Premier and Enterprise so that accountants and SMB’s can have shared multi-user access from any computer with an internet connection, including Mac, PC, iPads and other mobile devices. In addition, we also provide a full virtual office with access to Word, Excel and other document management tools with unlimited secure data storage that’s backed up every 30 minutes.

Why did you start this company?

Swizznet was formed to meet the every day needs of not only accountants, but our small-to-medium sized business clients. As CPA’s with a multi-office accounting practice we saw a real need to do day-to-day accounting and bookkeeping for our SMB clients who didn’t have time to do the books or deal with the turnover and expense of hiring their own in-house bookkeeper. To be able to offer those services we needed a secure, easy-to-use way to be able to work in the same QuickBooks files with our clients, share files and collaborate using easy document management tools. We tried all of the various QuickBooks remote access, hosting solutions as well as QuickBooks Online and just found that they all came up short in being able to meet all of our needs for a seamless technology platform for collaborating and access our programs and files from anywhere.

Was your company started on a shoestring budget or funded?

Our company was started on a shoestring budget with the focus of always investing in the best people and technologies to deliver unsurpassed service for our customers.

Who is your competition, and what do you do better?

There are about eight other Intuit Authorized hosting providers in the market place to choose from. What really sets us apart is the commit to utilizing the best technology and tools as they’re proven reliable paired with the very best service and support. We are not just another hosting provider – instead we act as a technology partner for our clients to ensure they always have the best support and can work seamlessly all day, every day.

Why would a small business, entrepreneur, freelancer, etc use your product?

We can provide small businesses, entrepreneurs and freelancers an easy way to access their QuickBooks and other applications and files in the cloud.

How could you effectively use these tools?

Business’s use our system to meet a variety of needs – from enabled employees in the field to enter invoices, process payments and print receipts on the go, to companies with users in multiple locations being able to work in the same files and collaborate without having to setup a server and businesses wanting to have secure online access to their files and applications while also enabling their CPA or bookkeeper to be able to login and work with them in real-time.

A short bio of your company
Swizznet was founded by an established, multi-office, CPA firm that was frustrated by the current online accounting technology and QuickBooks hosting offerings. They had tried a variety of solutions in the marketplace and found that there was nothing that offered the seamless technology, security, and reliability that would enable them and their SMB clients to work in the system all day, every day.

In 2007 Swizznet was created, bringing together real-world accountants, the best technology experts, and industry-leading Citrix technology platform to form an online accounting and bookkeeping solution that is superior to any other current offering in the marketplace.

We are exclusively focused on accounting (we don’t host medical records or architecture programs) and we’re committed to helping accountants and businesses by providing them with the tools and the technology they need to connect and collaborate from anywhere all day, every day.

Do you offer free online tools and different pricing levels?

We offer a free 30-day trial to get started and there are different pricing levels depending on the number of users that need access.

Do you have a blog or use other social media that keeps users updated?

We send out newsletters to all of our users and add those news stories to our website. In addition we offer real time status alerts via Twitter/SwizznetOps.

YouTube – Do you have a YouTube video URL that you can share with us, and allow us to publish with your story ?

How long have you been in business?

We’ve been in business since 2007.

How do you see your company in the next 2-5 years (more products or services?)

We will continue to focus on providing the best cloud computing technology and services for accountants and SMB’s so that they can connect and collaborate and access their accounting files and applications from anywhere.

How many employees do you currently have working with you and/or freelance contractors?

We currently have about 10 US based employees.

Are you looking to hire more people or contractors? If so, what positions and skills are you looking for?

We are always on the look out for exceptional people to join the Swizznet QuickBooks hosting team. We need system engineers, tech support team members and tech savvy account managers to join our fast growing team. Customer service is always the main focus no matter what the position.

What other web based products would you recommend to entrepreneurs, business owners, or freelancers?

Other great technologies which work nicely with Swizznet are SmartVault and Bill.com – both cloud-based solutions integrate with our system and help to get rid of the paper shuffle and extend the functionality of QuickBooks to the next level.

Other web based products we love and use ourselves are:

Zendesk – zendesk.com – an awesome web-based help desk software/ticket system

Salesforce – salesforce.com – a very flexible and easy to implement SaaS CRM
