Overall great software for accounting professionals

Used Daily for 2+ years

Review Source: Capterra

One major problem with some accounting softwares is that the reports needed to perform analysis, checks, etc. are unavailable. Intacct's wide report customization is a great solution to this that has resulted in an overall positive experience with the software.

Pros

For those businesses and organizations looking to step up their accounting software from Quickbooks (or something similar), Sage Intacct is a great solution.

While not as intuitive and user friendly as the systems designed for non-accounting professionals, Sage Intacct offers a myriad of features and functionality that is an accounting professional’s dream.
One of the best features of Intacct is its reporting system. Users can run any report they could ever dream of that includes GL, AP, AR, Time & Expenses, Order Entry, Purchasing, etc. Reports are not only customizable, but savable too.

Another great feature of Intacct is that the company is constantly releasing updates, which means the system is always evolving and getting better.

Overall, Sage Inacct offers massive capability and is great for organizations who have outgrown smaller systems or who need greater customization.

Cons

For those accustomed to the hand holding of a software like Quickbooks, Sage Intacct can make you feel a bit alone in the woods. It, for the most part, assumes that whoever is using it is an accounting professional, capable of understanding the inner workings of AP, AR, etc. For this reason, I would not recommend the system to those who are unfamiliar with accounting procedures and systems.

Pros

I like the flexibility and ease of the software. It is overall simple to correct errors. I enjoy the import features for invoices and journal entries. Saves a lot of time and is user friendly, even for less experiences computer users.

Cons

The restrictions of some features and functions. I feel like the functionality is more designed by computer programmers than by actual day to day users. For example, if you are trying to create a custom report, vendor ID is stored one way when entering invoices, and another way when entering journal entries. Customer service suggested to me that I enter the vendor ID in 2 different fields (I believe Vendor_ID and APBillItem_VendorID) for all invoice imports so that I can use 1 f. This is redundant and frustrating. Also for example, you can set invoices to "warn" you if duplicate invoice numbers when manually entering, but if you are using the import feature, it will just crash. You have to de-select the "warn" option, upload the file, and then turn the "warn" function back on. This is not practical. There should be some type of override function for intentional duplicate invoice #s.

Sage Intacct is a great company to work with. Their software solution is great and easy to use. If your looking to change from an outdated solution, this should make the transition easier.

Pros

The software is great. It is super easy to use and almost impossible to break. It can be used for more than your monthly accounting. We use it to track our valuation process. It is easy to track everything in the software and perform your monthly accounting tasks. You can track t&e, ap, ar, fixed assets, and do your cash management in this solution. There are many other features that make it a best in class solution

Cons

The software itself is great. There are certain things we would like to be able to track in the software, like irr, but we also don't expect one software to do anything. There may sometimes be a lag in support getting back to you when you have issues, but nothing that is too extreme

Customer support was great from the start and the program is flexible in regards to creating reports

Review Source: Capterra

The software allowed ability to perform accounts payable to issue cheques and to produce financial statements quickly. The 12 month report is very useful to pick up changes to values in account. The budgeting aspect is also useful for variance analysis.

Pros

I like the ability to create the financial reports and also the Dashboard reports. The payables area is easy to perform functions and the year-end close is very simple.

Cons

This program is mainly written for the US market and is not able to create an EFT file (Canadian) that can be uploaded to the bank and create journal entries simultaneously. That would benefit us to make payments that are not by cheque. The "cash" payment types are good because an e-mail can be sent: however still requires for us to do a separate EFT payment on the bank.

Overall the system is easy to use and they are constantly making improvements. They are also taking user feedback into consideration and implementing it into new updates every quarter.

Pros

I really like the automatic billing capability, I can now send my invoices in 2 hours instead of 2 days. The level of details in the financial reports is exactly what our company was looking for when we switched to Intacct. The ease of having our expense reporting system and Intacct communicate is super helpful, means less manual work.

Cons

I would like to have more features when I record payments and I can't edit certain transactions. I like to drill down on come of the reports and you can't do that so finding out where that information came from is sometimes a challenge.

Sage Intacct Main Features

Accounts Payable & Receivable

Intacct automates most accounts payable and receivable processes for businesses. Finance departments are able to automate tactical vendor management workflows across the accounts payable process, which allows them to focus on more high-value insights and targeted efficiencies. Organizations can also make accounts receivable tasks more efficient through automated invoicing and collections.

Intacct allows you to connect your Accounts Receivable to the rest of your business. It is also able to work with existing CRM solutions to provide you with a unified view of all quotes, sales orders, and pending invoices. Your transactions will be automatically posted to your general ledger and your accounts receivable ledger, which enables you to streamline billing tasks.

Accounts Receivable

Order Management

As businesses grow, the details in a typical order management process can get complicated quickly. For example, changes in orders can be difficult to make when businesses utilize multiple systems for record keeping. Intacct is attempting to close this gap and decrease inefficiencies within the order management process through the use of strategic automation.

Rather than manually entering order information across one, two, or even three record keeping applications, you can integrate Intacct into your workflow and configure a new series of comprehensive pricing requirements. As new orders come in, a single click will trigger fulfillment, billing, and revenue accounting. This reduces overall costs and improves client satisfaction, as well.

Order Entry

Reporting & Dashboards

Intacct tracks both operational and financial data and provides it to middle market organizations in a way that is intuitive. Managers and executives who use it for creating visualizations of data have a more complete view of their organizations, and they can discover the answers to detailed business questions.

By clicking on the Reporting tab from the dashboard, you can create virtually any type of report in seconds. You also have the option of creating visualizations of data. Intacct is able to capture the context of your transactions, operational measurements, and budgets. It creates reports that analyze business performance in real time.

Reporting

Multi-Entity Consolidations

Multi-entity consolidation makes business growth easier. Financials for multiple locations are streamlined when organizations use Intacct’s ERP tools, and activities like currency conversion, inter-entity transactions, and local tax reporting are automated in order to eliminate the need for manual data entry and encourage sustained growth.

Utilizing multi-entity consolidation, you can review summary figures and perform financial consolidations at any time. Intacct generates journal entries for each consolidation, which means that comprehensive financial statements are ready when you need them. You can even set up new entities with configurable rules for transactions and bank accounts using Intacct’s tools.
