Highness Cloud allows accountants or corporate accounting departments to provide their clients or staff with accounting functionality that is accessible from any authorized device, anywhere in the world. If you simply want your website hosted, you'll have to look somewhere else.

Overview

HighnesscloudHighness Cloud was founded in 2010, and according to its LinkedIn page, it is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona.

Rather than providing generic shared web hosting, this company hosts popular accounting and tax applications in the cloud. I’m talking about accounting software such as QuickBooks, Sage, Quicken, and Peachtree, and tax applications such as Lacerte, Drake, ATX, and ProSeries.

Highness Cloud’s website supports the English language.

Features and Ease of Use

Highness Cloud offers one QuickBooks cloud hosting package, three tax software hosting packages, and four hosted accounting packages. The QuickBooks cloud hosting package provides:

  • Full-featured QuickBooks
  • Free setup
  • 99.995% uptime
  • 3 GB data storage per user (with paid add-on storage available)
  • Compatibility with a range of devices
  • Antivirus
  • Daily data backups
  • Remote printing

Since data is hosted in the cloud, it is backed up daily at multiple locations. You also benefit from various security layers.

Pricing and Support

Highness Cloud’s accounting hosting is priced competitively, but this is pretty specialist stuff with few competitors. You can pay in U.S. dollars on monthly to annual billing cycles, with 16% discounts for annual hosting. A seven-day free trial is available.

24/7 customer support can be accessed by telephone, email, or live chat (with one-minute response times). The not-so-good news is that my pre-sales support approaches were ignored. Limited self-support resources are available via the blog:

Bottom line on Highnesscloud

Put simply, Highness Cloud allows accountants or corporate accounting departments to provide a web-based accounting interface to their clients or staff. It’s just as functional as the old desktop accounting software, but since it sits in the cloud, the functionality is available from any authorized device anywhere in the world. That bad news is that you’ll have to look somewhere else if you simply want your website hosting.

Pros

  • 9 years of industry experience
  • 99.995% uptime
  • Competitive pricing
  • Free 7-day trial

Cons

  • No web hosting plans
  • Unresponsive pre-sales support

Get competitively-priced QuickBooks or other accounting application hosting from Highness Cloud.
