Overall Satisfaction with Sage Intacct

We are using it in the accounting and finance departments. We were able to add multiple entities and multi-currency which we weren't previously able to do.
  • Multi currency
  • Consolidation
  • Training
  • Reduced the consolidation process for multi-entity.
  • Being able to use multi-currency functions is one of the largest benefits we have seen.
  • The learning curve has increased our closing time. Coming from QuickBooks has been quite difficult.
It has really helped with our accounts payable workflow and the visibility of bills and bill payments. We have been able to outsource our bill entry and create rules on certain bill entries.
With global expansion, we have been able to incorporate multi-entity mode, as well as multi-currency mode and can a bigger picture of the overall health of our company. The ability to click a button and have everything consolidate and convert foreign currency to USD has saved us from having to do this manually in spreadsheets.
Going from QuickBooks to Intacct has been quite the ordeal. With an integration time frame of 2.5 months, it was not enough. The differences between the two softwares are not detailed and key functionality differences were missed. There needs to be more of a specialized integration for when customers are coming over from QuickBooks in order to cover everything and set it up properly.
We selected Sage Intacct due to global expansion and the need to have multi-entities in one software, as well as begin to use multi-currency. I don't feel QuickBooks could have handled our growth, and the consolidation process would still have to be manual.
It is great for companies that need to deal with multi-entities and multi-currency. The consolidation function is great and reduces manual consolidation with a ton of spreadsheets.

It is difficult to begin using when coming from QuickBooks. There are reduced editing functions in Intacct compared to QuickBooks and can be difficult to get used to.
