And it have their database centralized and managed at one place. The RDP interface allows the access to inhouse QuickBooks Server from different locations and the employees who need the access while on the move. The connection is private, secure and is end to end encrypted. You need to have a Standard Windows Server, Gateway and a GUI (Graphical User Interface) in place to set it up.
