3 Integrated Accounting Desktop (IAD) FAQs What are Integrated Accounting Desktops (IADs)? In essence, IADs combine simplicity, security, and scalability with the reliability of the latest virtualization of servers and a cloud hosting platform. They allow our clients the ability to share data, which streamlines the accounting and management of your financial records. It s incredibly efficient because everyone works with the most up-to-date information while saving time, money and error correction What programs are included on an IAD? A key feature of IAD is inclusion of a recent and supported version of QuickBooks Enterprise along with Microsoft Office. This alleviates the cost and frustration of any future QuickBooks upgrades and Microsoft capability limitations. Can an IAD support more than one QuickBooks company file? Absolutely! IAD costs are based on seats, not how many QuickBooks company files are hosted. Many of our clients operate multiple businesses with separate QuickBooks company files. Why choose a cloud server? Physical desktop computer infrastructures no longer make sense for the business world. Not only are they expensive, insecure and maintenance-heavy, they also cannot effectively support the changing business IT landscape. Cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computing over a network and means the ability to run a program(s) on many connected computers at the same time. How much does it cost? Each client will vary in cost based on their individual company needs, number of users and software. In general, cloud based servers are very cost effective for small businesses. Most clients enjoy bundling IADs with current services provided by our firm. What level of support can I expect? Out of the Box Technology (OTB) is our hosting support provider and is available to assist you 24/7/365 via phone, or support ticket. OTB monitors and maintains the data center, network, and all the hardware that powers your cloud servers. How safe is my data? All data is stored on highly redundant infrastructure backed up on a daily basis. Details regarding OTB s specifications and certifications are included on the attached IAD specification sheet. What is the difference between a cloud server and a dedicated server? Our Cloud Servers offer far greater flexibility vs. a dedicated server. Cloud servers can be created in seconds, easily scaled up, and deleted whenever you wish. There are no long-term commitments. Can I scale up my cloud server? Yes, you can scale up your cloud server to a larger configuration anytime you wish. Do you offer data backup? Currently, we are conducting nightly backups. Additionally, we offer point-in-time snapshot backup and the ability to restore functionality back to a certain point in time. Can I test drive an IAD? Yes, before providing you with a customized quote we will provide you access to our IAD demo. How do I get started? Our IAD is a custom solution, meaning it can be tailored to best fit your business. There is no one-size fits all. Depending on the size of your company, your current version of QuickBooks and how many seats are needed. Once you are signed-up, the process involves gathering your data and uploading it to your IAD, upgrading your QuickBooks file(s), configuring your printer(s) drivers and then a quick tutorial on how to log in and manage your server. Do I have to sign a long-term contract? No, you can cancel at any time. If you decide to cancel before the end of 12 months there is a small cancelation fee.

5 Certifications SAS 70 Type II/ SSAE 16 Type II When an organization is looking to entrust its data and IT support to another firm, they want to be assured that the information is protected in a safe, secure environment managed by knowledgeable IT professionals. The SAS 70 Type II and the newly established SSAE 16 Type II audits were developed to provide that reassurance to customers. These audits review and validate the business processes associated with IT activities including: Internal procedures, corporate ethics, and defined workplace codes Internal monitoring and oversight Data security and integrity Physical security Design, development and change cycles are managed for hardware and software systems In mid-2011, the third party SSAE 16 Type II Audit superseded the SAS 70 audit. A Type II audit is conducted by a third party organization to verify that the specified controls have operated effectively over a specified period of time. TSR Solutions has attained both the SSAE 16 Type II and SAS 70 Type II certifications, ensuring our customers that their data will be secured in a data center that meets the highest standards in the industry.

Layer One: We configure Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy to take Snap Shots of your data at 7 AM, Noon and 6 PM daily. With Volume Shadow Copy you can restore your data by right clicking on your data folder(s) and choosing to "Restore Previous Versions". Layer Two: We configure Storage Craft Shadow Protect to take Continuous Incremental backups of your data every hour from 7 AM to 7 PM Daily. Continuous Incremental Backups allow us to restore data to the last hour should your data have been corrupted and the Volume Shadow Copies are insufficient to continue operations from. Layer Three: We configure Storage Craft Cloud to upload the Incremental Backups to Storage Craft Servers as they are created so that your data is continually offloaded to offsite storage
6 hourly as the images are taken. This ensures that should a catastrophe happen to our servers or the data center, we can give you access to your data based on the last backup uploaded. You can always create a QuickBooks backup on our servers as often as you like and simply copy and paste that backup to your local workstation as well. Minimum Operating Requirements In order to connect into our servers, you must be running either Windows 7 or Windows 8 on your local PC(s) with at least Internet Explorer 9.0 or Mac OS X Snow Leopard or Newer with Remote Desktop Client for Mac 2.1. Your Internet connection from your location should be at least a 3 MB download and 1 MB upload speed for 1 ~ 3 users and at least 8 MB Download by 3 MB Upload for 5 or more users.
