What inspired you to build the above product/ service?

     QuickBooks has been a celebrated accounting solution for a very long time. Several factors come
     together to make QuickBooks a highly sought-after, reputed, and user-friendly accounting software.  To say
     it out loud, QuickBooks has everything that accountants need to simplify their financial and business
     management processes, such as a range of helpful features, affordable price, easy availability, hasslefree
     navigation, and a user-friendly interface. And, the cloud only makes it better.
     Professionals always love technology that makes their life easier. Technology, when used appropriately,
     can save time, add efficiency to your routine tasks, and ultimately enhance your productivity. Similarly,
     the introduction of the cloud and the power of accounting software, such as QuickBooks, has been nothing
     short of a boon for the accounting sector. From doing-it-manually on paper and spending hours on heavy
     calculations to using the software for handling the day-to-day accounting tasks effortlessly, technology
     has been a lifesaver for many.
     But working with the QuickBooks from one place for a CPA or Bookkeeper was really a tough task
     as they had to travel way too far to the client’s locations to check their books. This led us to think about
     the cloud solution where the QB applications can be installed in one place and the software is accessible
     from any location via any internet-connected devices be it PC, Mac, Laptop or mobile devices. 
     Hosting QB on the cloud is budget-friendly. There are a number of overhead expenses for installing
     an in-house IT infrastructure. The cost of machinery is high. On top of that, owners also need to hire
     and train an entire team to maintain the infrastructure. All of this and more is already taken care of with
     cloud-hosted QuickBooks. Your hosting provider ensures that the software is always up-to-date.
     They perform frequent backups of your data so it is never lost. Also, the setup and data migration
     are done free of cost. So, you end up with massive savings that you can reinvest for business expansion.

What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?

     Not much, as we are a team who understand QuickBooks and the technical part so very well
     so it was not challenging to set up a cloud environment. But yes, choosing the right data centre
     was really tricky at the beginning.

How did you overcome initial mindset challenges?

     We connected with several data centres in the United States and selected some of them which
     seemed capable of handling the high traffic and physically/virtually secure.

According to you, what are the three qualities an individual must have to achieve success?

     Self-reliance, Passion & Patience

What is your life mantra?

     You’re never as good as everyone says when you win, and you’re never as terrible as they tell
     you when you lose.  The important thing is what you’ve learned, and how you choose to
     implement your knowledge.

Share any one habit which you think makes you more productive.

     Schedule your day the night before.

Share any one habit which you wish to change in yourself.

     I would like to be less reactive to certain situations.

What are your top three getaway destinations?

     South Island, New Zealand, The Ring Road in Iceland & Tiger’s Nest Monastery.
