Sorry if this sounds a bit 'green'. I am helping my family set up a new accounting practice after going out on their own.
We are setting up IT and getting pretty confused with the best solution.
I'd like to have a cloud computing option like a hosted or virtual desktop, so everyone can log on remotely and bring their own devices and log on to their desktop.
We have been quoted $150 per use per month for hosted desktop with Microsoft programs by a couple of companies in NZ. (we have 5 people).
I have also been looking at AWS and Rackspace solutions are perhaps aimed at bigger businesses than ours.
My question is - is it worth using a company to offer a hosted desktop and pay the per user per month fee, or do you think we could get by by just using Microsoft 365 on our laptops and using cloud services like Xero that can be accessed anywhere.
I'm sorry if this doesn't quite make sense - i'm getting slightly confused myself but am hoping someone can offer some advice or shed some light.
Happy to answer any questions :)
