Sage Intacct

Sage Intacct is perfect if you are a single entity or all entities are within the US. Intacct is nearly a perfect system at that point. I still don't like the Vendor and Client functionality (contrast with Quickbooks or NetSuite which make sense in this area). It's perfect if your fixed asset and prepaid expense volume is fairly low. The reporting is powerful. The ability to create custom fields and then report on them using custom reports is fantastic.Sage Intacct is not well suited for multiple entities with different base currencies.

NetSuite

I am a huge advocate for NetSuite, because the system is user-friendly (after a little training) and because it is so customizable. I would recommend NetSuite to any business with more than one company and especially businesses with companies based in more than one country. Small, medium and large companies can leverage the NetSuite platform to suit their needs, whether simple or complex.NetSuite has a number of taxation features that can help to automate return filings, so any business looking to systematize certain tax areas will find the system very useful.NetSuite allows great transparency across an organization and adopts a "one source of truth" methodology. If you have Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Sales, Operations, etc. all working in the same platform and working with the same data, there is less room for data discrepancies and more reliance can be placed upon the system outputs.If a business has a disconnect between Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Sales, Operations, etc. NetSuite will allow that business to come together and automate processes within a single system. There is no need for external system connectors, saving the business time (maintaining the connections) and money (saving on subscription fees to third-party connector vendors).

Pros

Sage Intacct

  • The software is very intuitive and has allowed even inexperienced users of accounting software to be quickly trained and operating in the system quickly.
  • Sage provides flexibility as a cloud-based software for our entire team to operate efficiently in different locations.
  • Sage also has allowed the company much easier reporting at the subsidiary and parent level, which was an issue with our previous QuickBooks software.
Shelton Horton profile photo

NetSuite

  • Financials - Our core financials are maintained in Netsuite, and it does a great job of accurately and intuitively doing this.
  • Order Management - Our sales order to invoice to payment is smooth and highly customized for what we need.
  • Inventory Management - Inventory is managed smoothly and accurately. We have many options and customizations, all handled well
Howie Friedman, CPA profile photo

Cons

Sage Intacct

  • Various submodule functionality can be increased. Granted, there are many partners, customizations and add-ons that could be done to help but there are still a few minor gaps.
  • Reporting works well for financials but misses the mark on operational reporting. It is possible the new report writer could fill the void but we just went with a different BI tool.
  • There is a wide variety with the Intacct partners and each represents it differently. Be very careful and vet the partner thoroughly.
Kyle Kienzle profile photo

NetSuite

  • Netsuite needs improved bank feeds. We do a lot of data entry for individual bank and credit card transactions at month end. They could learn from Xero in this area.

Through creation of various dashboards and KPIs the user does not really need to get very technically involved. They simply need to understand how to fill out a form, and through proper workflow creations they can be alerted when it is time to provide the necessary information or perform a necessary action to complete the next phase of the business process.

Most of the time the performance is very good. Pages load in a few seconds; financial reports take less than 5 seconds; basic searches take a few seconds. But performance can be sporadic throughout the day and cause the run time to triple.

It has gotten better in last year or two, but as an experienced NetSuite user, I know more than many of the support reps and have to escalate. You cannot directly go higher, unless you are partner who pays for partner support.

I have the general complaint that they don’t always fix the things you want i.e. bug fixes etc. but I have gotten used to it. I average finding one defect every week, however they are usually small and unimportant. The pace of product development feels slow for this day and age. But as an admin, I don’t think I would want to go through more than two releases/year

I wasn't here for the implementation, but from what I've seen, I would rate it a 5-6.

I would recommend contracting with a NetSuite partner.

Data migration can be a big driver of implementation complexity.

We have been able to scale our business 25X without any major overhaul with Netsuite. Its dashboard setup makes onboarding new employees very easy and allows data to be shared across multiple offices. Its cloud setup does not put any pressure on IT to scale servers or other infrastructure. We have been able to become much more efficient in all aspects of the business.
