Whether you are in the early stages of choosing a cloud accounting software, or are evaluating your current solution, it is important to select a financial platform that fits your organization’s specific needs. A flexible, customized cloud-based financial software should scale with your organization and help achieve your financial goals. Selecting the wrong accounting platform can impede your organization’s growth trajectory and limit capabilities. The right solution will depend on many factors, so it is essential to put the time and effort into evaluating viable options. Sage Intacct, AICPA’s only preferred financial management solution, is an easy to use accounting software that drives growth. With detailed accounting reports, Sage Intacct can help you gain deeper financial insight into your business and improve collaboration throughout your organization. Below are the 5 areas where Sage Intacct excels over other financial platforms: 

1.  No Hidden Costs 

When comparing costs of accounting software, it is important to select a platform that is transparent about current and future costs. Choosing a cloud accounting software with no hidden fees will eliminate increased pricing and costs outside of the budget. With Sage Intacct, cost is based off modules and user types, ensuring that you only pay for the product and user access you need. Other accounting platforms may have hidden costs associated with tiered pricing, adding on many additional fees as you navigate the product. Sage Intacct can help bring predictability back to your software system with transparency in upfront pricing.  

2.  User Friendly 

Sage Intacct’s user interface is intuitive and can be used by anyone who is new to the financial platform. The easy to use accounting software can help simplify workflows, financial reports, consolidations, and core financials for your organization. The proven implementation process allows users to feel comfortable in the new environment without complex consulting. The user-friendly system allows users to seamlessly complete tasks in minutes. As you hire new accounting and finance team members, the software is intuitive and easy to learn how to use. You do not need to be a finance professional to operate in Sage Intacct, the platform is easy to use for other team members who might be utilizing the software for tasks or reporting.  

“Sage Intacct automated accounting software has an extremely intuitive user interface. It is very responsive and easy to use and adapt to. One of my favorite things about it, is that there are no specific terms or technical knowledge needed when using it.” – Lisa deLeon, Director of Finance at CompuData   

3.  Financial Reporting and Dashboards

According to a Sage Intacct report, organizations have saved 40+ hours per month on reporting and cut time spent checking data accuracy by 75 percent. One of the core features of Sage Intacct is its real-time dashboards and reporting capabilities. With Sage Intacct, users do not need to be an expert to create custom financial reports. The cloud-based software has a custom report writer built into the system, allowing users to easily create detailed accounting reports with the click of a button. If your organization is still relying on spreadsheet reporting and manual consolidations, Sage Intacct saves hours of time and achieves real-time visibility into your business. 

4.  Open API Integration

Sage Intacct is built from the ground up to integrate with other best-in-class solutions. Most customers integrate at least two external applications with Sage Intacct, which provides the flexibility to choose the best options for your organization.  Instead of changing all your current platforms, Sage Intacct allows you to connect to your other products while implementing a better accounting software. Choosing a cloud accounting software that has an open API infrastructure allows you to securely integrate the solutions you need for your organization, such as Salesforce. Sage Intacct’s native accounting salesforce integration will increase visibility into your operations, enhance detailed accounting reports and provide real time updates on customer accounts, improving efficiency and collaboration throughout your organization.  

5. Implementation Partner with the Right Experience 

As you evaluate which financial and accounting software has the features that will deliver the efficiency you need, make sure you work with an implementation partner who has experience completing migrations with your existing software such as Sage, QuickBooks, Peachtree, etc. Every organization is different, and implementation should be scoped and customized for each individual client to meet their specific business needs. Working with a partner who knows how to navigate the ecosystem, and who understands your organizational needs will help ensure your implementation is successful. 

Sage Intacct partners with value-added resellers (VARs) who specialize in Sage products and help ensure a seamless migration and implementation process for clients. Sage Intacct’s VAR program has attracted the best and the brightest in the industry.
