I am in a similar situation, small business running an 'all Ubuntu'
network but with the need for a few Windows applications (my accounts
run on an Access database, scannner software, MS Office).

I'd recommend VirtualBox, it works well for us and provides all the
Windows'ness that we need.  Even non-computery types seem to cope with
it pretty well.
