Many messages voiced the opinion that they didn't trust Intuit to keep the servers up and running 24/7 (citing recent difficulties with Intuit's server-based applications). Quite a few messages said that Intuit's Sync Manager (required for many server-based features) had caused frequent complications and problems, and "un-synching" a file had been difficult. Some accountants and bookkeepers said the need to open a separate Intuit online services account for each QuickBooks company file was a strong deterrent.
