Optimal deployment for multi-country accounts

My company operates in USA and in Canada, so manages two sets of accounts, USA using Enterprise 2019 and Canada using Premier Edition 2019. There are employees in USA and Canada that need to access both sets of QuickBooks.

 

I have recently taken over management of the company's IT systems and would like to know the most optimal way to operate such a setup.

 

For example, should each employee have both QB versions installed on their laptops and access the company files from a shared resource, or should we have perhaps a shared Windows installation that people connect to using Remote Desktop and access QB on there, or is there a 3rd option? Are there any licensing implications for any of these strategies?

 

Note, the QB users do not believe QB cloud has all the features they need, so are reluctant to move there, although it may be the best solution from my point of view. Is there any way to prove this?

 

Thanks,

Andrew

Most of the cloud solutions will put your data file on their premise. If you deploy a private cloud, you may keep the data file on your own premise and combine LAN users and mobile users working on it at the same time. Should you have an IT dedicated team in-house, setup a Windows RDP solution is your primary option.

Third option, deploy a private cloud solution in 2 hosts.  Any of your mobile users may access the data file and no need to install QuickBooks on their machines. If they need to open the data file locally by LAN, they have to install it.

That's just a variant of my option#2, but using your cloud hosting.

OK thanks. One further question please, would I need separate windows VMs for each of the two editions, or can you combine US Enterprise and Canada Desktop on the same Windows installation.
