What makes Sage Intacct the best accounting software for Recruitment Agencies?

The unique nature of the recruitment industry calls for a comprehensive financial management platform, one that can handle complex billing and invoicing, multiple branches and real-time insights into operations. 

Here are 8 reasons Sage Intacct could well be the best accounting software for recruitment agencies: 


1. A Holistic View of Financials

When dealing with multiple revenue streams such as client frees, candidate placements and temporary worker payrolls, consolidating financial data proves time-consuming and complex using traditional accounting software. 

Sage Intacct allows Recruitment Agencies to consolidate data from various sources, providing a comprehensive view of their financial health. This promotes better decision-making as agency managers have access to real-time insights into revenue generation, expenses and overall profitability.

3. Easier Invoicing and Billing

Accurate and timely invoicing is essential in maintaining positive client relationships. Sage Intacct enables recruitment agencies to generate customised invoices based on different contract terms, reducing the risk of errors and getting them paid faster! 

Real-time visibility into outstanding invoices helps speed up payment collections and maintain a healthy cash flow.
