Look no more.  You’ve found the solution with Method and Right Networks because you can take your QuickBooks to the cloud with Right Networks, the largest and most trusted provider of desktop QuickBooks hosting.  With Right Networks your data will always be online, accessible from any location with an Internet connection, with high security protection to keep your data safe.

We are proud to announce that we are officially partners with this outstanding desktop QuickBooks hosting provider. 

What sets Right Networks apart from the competition?  Right Networks uses enterprise-class servers that are load balanced, meaning that if a server ever goes down, another server will be up right away, so your data is always online.  Be at ease knowing that offsite backups of your data are made on your behalf, and your hosted storage comes with banking-class encryption to keep your data secure and protected.  Right Networks’ service is reliable, efficient, and ideal for companies with remote staff and accountants.

By hosting your QuickBooks with Right Networks in conjunction with Method Integration, your entire business system is in the cloud, accessible from anywhere in the world via the web, without any downloads and installations taking up valuable space on your computer.  Right Networks has the Method Integration Engine preloaded on their server, so the real-time synchronization between QuickBooks and Method can take place 100% in the cloud.  With no downloads and installations to worry about, you can get up and running in no time using Right Networks with Method.

Multiple people can access the same QuickBooks and Method company files simultaneously, making it a convenient solution for remote staff and accountants.  While Right Networks makes it possible for business owners, accounting department personnel and/or accountants to login and access QuickBooks desktop without any fuss at all, admin, sales, marketing, support and remote staff login to Method to access the business and QuickBooks data that their user permissions allow.  Since QuickBooks and Method synchronize data in real-time, both company files are always up-to-date.  With your entire business system in a controlled environment, you can trust that your data is safe, secure and accessible 24/7.

"My firm is the first user on Right Networks with Method and QuickBooks integrated for a fully hosted solution.  We have been delighted to have all our data in one place, which has greatly improved our time and contact management, and reduced duplicate data entry.  We now have more time for our customers and the confidence that all our data is secure. - Method & Right Networks user, Judith Valese Syms

Here is how it works:

Right Networks manages your back office- your QuickBooks desktop data is accessible by owners, managers and accountants who need to access QuickBooks directly.

Method manages your front office- All other data entry for admin, sales, marketing, support, CRM and industry-applications, including QuickBooks-related data.

Here are some examples:

Company: Erin’s Mobile Spa


Erin owns a small mobile spa company that is quickly gaining popularity.  Erin needs to be able to schedule her 3 estheticians as calls come in and also have her estheticians track their time and products used at each client’s location.  Erin emails her estheticians their weekly schedules and calls to let them know if there are any changes.  The estheticians only swing by Erin’s office periodically when they run out of products.  Erin would like to avoid having to manually enter in the estheticians’ timesheets.  Erin also has an accountant that comes in on a monthly basis to do her accounting using QuickBooks.


Erin now has her QuickBooks desktop hosted with Right Networks.  When she needs to access her QuickBooks information, she logs into the Right Networks server, and appreciates knowing that her data will always be accessible thanks to their load balanced servers.  She has also setup an additional user so her accountant can login to do the accounting and no longer needs to come into the office to do it on a monthly basis.  Erin also setup her Method account and schedules work through Method Field Services.  She is able to add new customers through Method and dispatch work for her estheticians.  The estheticians also login to Method to view their schedule, enter in their times and check for newly scheduled work.  Erin can also see which products her estheticians are running out of, so she can ensure she has everything in stock and ready for pickup in advance.  The service times being entered and customers being added by Erin and her staff appear in QuickBooks in real-time and the only people having to access QuickBooks directly are Erin and her accountant.  Erin knows that her data is safe and secure using Right Networks and Method and is able to focus on business expansion.

Company: Jacob’s Accounting Firm


Jacob is a QuickBooks ProAdvisor.  Typically, Jacob logs in remotely to his client’s computers to do their accounting work.  He usually calls the client in advance to ensure they are not using the PC he is logging into, and if they are, he calls and tries again later.  Understandably, Jacob finds it bothersome when he has to rearrange his schedule to wait for the user to get off the computer before he can login and provide his services.  Jacob also has some clients that send him a copy of their QuickBooks file on a monthly basis, so he has to make sure he and his clients are using compatible versions of QuickBooks.  Most of his clients utilize basic functions in QuickBooks like creating invoices, bills, entering times or receiving purchase orders.  Ideally, Jacob would like to manage the QuickBooks files for his clients while allowing them access to necessary information, in a way that would allow them to carry on with business as usual.  Jacob would prefer not to host the QuickBooks files at his office since the infrastructure and security are not in place.  He is looking for a reliable, efficient solution to ease his frustrations.


A colleague recommended Method Integration to Jacob and he was delighted at the prospect of hosting the QuickBooks files for his clients and having his clients do their data entry through Method.  Not only did Method provide a solution to his remote access needs, but all the business functions his clients needed were available using the Method interface.  By using Method with QuickBooks, Jacob would always have access to the QuickBooks desktop data, even when his clients are entering QuickBooks data via Method.  Even better, Jacob now uses Right Networks to host all of his clients’ QuickBooks files so he doesn’t have to worry about security issues.  Right Networks hosts the QuickBooks files and runs Method, so he logs onto the Right Networks server to do his work, while his clients logon to access Method.   Jacob’s clients are pleased that they no longer have to get off the computer in order for Jacob to do the accounting, or send in copies of their company files, and love being able to access to their business data via an internet connection.
