Intacct: Key Reasons to Implement Best in Class Cloud ERP

January 19, 2017 / by Dave Phillips

As an Intacct partner, we are often asked by our existing customers what the benefits are for moving away from Quickbooks or their legacy ERP system to Intacct.  In most cases, these customers are feeling the limitations of their current systems; complexity for the end user, lack of multi-entity capability and cost of upgrades and customizations.  In some cases, they have implemented cloud financial systems like Adaptive Insights or BlackLine and are considering going “all-in” on the cloud. 

So, here are some of the reasons why organizations should consider implementing Intacct:

  1. Intacct is a “best-in-class” cloud ERP system

Intacct mobile.jpgFrom its founding, Intacct has focused on building and deploying a world class ERP system on the cloud.  It isn’t a reengineered legacy system with a web-browser user interface.  The solution is readily accessible on desktop, tablet and mobile devices.  Intacct spends considerable amounts of money and resources on R&D to deliver new capabilities to customers.  Indeed, they offer quarterly updates to their system, which is a level of innovation unmatched in the industry.  They are also focused on the customer, not only in their product development strategy, but also in the sales process where they work hard to ensure a great fit.  As an Intacct partner, we align completely with that sales philosophy and also believe that “best-in-class” solutions provide the best long-term strategic returns.     

  1. Intacct is built for growing companies

Intacct ERP provides financial decision-makers with the information they need to grow and be successful.  It displays the business and operational metrics by any dimension that matters to your organization.  With growth often comes complexity and the need for additional finance headcount – but not with Intacct. It automates and streamlines the full spectrum of accounting processes so that your accounting and finance team can achieve more with less.  For organizations that are outgrowing Quickbooks, Intacct provides multi-entity close and reporting, revenue recognition, project accounting, and more.  Multi-entity close and reporting was one of the major reasons our customer, J2 Interactive, made the switch from Quickbooks to Intacct. 

  1. Intacct integrates with other financial and operational systems

  1. Self-service reporting

At Carlson, we are naturally a big believer in cloud financial systems.  One reason is that these systems provide self-service access to reports, dashboards and other analyses while having robust management controls in place to ensure only authorized access and viewing permissions.  Finance and accounting teams can create reports and make them available to others throughout the organization.  Say goodbye to spending countless hours creating reports – let your colleagues access the latest information they need and when they need it.

These are just a few reasons why you should consider Intacct Cloud ERP for your growing business.  Want to learn more, simply request a discovery call and demo.  The cloud financial solutions experts at Carlson are here to help!
