Sage Intacct Overview
Sage Intacct is a leading provider of cloud financial management and accounting software, delivering all the professional services and functionality a growing business needs at a fraction of the cost and risk of traditional accounting software. Named by the AICPA as its preferred provider of financial and cloud accounting software applications, Sage Intacct helps companies of all sizes improve access to real-time information, optimize business procedures and strengthen financial controls.
Sage Intacct was designed by financial professionals for financial professionals, with guidance from thousands of customers and more than a hundred partners. As a result, Sage Intacct delivers superior, deep financial applications that excel at meeting the needs of a broad range of industries and organizations of many sizes.
Thriving organizations gravitate toward the cloud delivery model for all on-demand business applications. The cloud accounting software model is compelling because it shifts many of the costs and risks of traditional on-premises software from the customer to the supplier. With no software or hardware to buy, install, maintain, or upgrade, the mandate for cloud applications grows as businesses are increasingly asked to do more with less. Sage Intacct cloud applications enable companies to run their business better and more flexibly.
Sage Intacct applications are always on and always current and can be accessed securely anytime, from anywhere, with a web browser and an internet connection. This means employees can work from home or remote locations as efficiently as they can from the office, and they can work at any time of the day. You can use this flexibility to make it easier to recruit financial talent, tap into labor pools in geographically lower-cost areas for repetitive tasks and collaborate in real-time with outside accountants and auditors.
