Sage 300 vs Sage Intacct; why do businesses consider changing their financial management solution?

Let’s take a closer look…

A sign of the times?

In our current fast-moving, ever-changing society, businesses are more challenged than ever to keep up with the pace. Having to quickly adapt working processes to accommodate remote working presented issues many were unprepared or equipped to handle.

While financial management software solutions have been serving customers perfectly well for decades, there’s no denying technology is advancing far faster than ever before – placing increased demands on finance leaders to deliver.

Are you facing tougher demands around:

  • More ad-hoc reports requiring up-to-date information?
  • Managing multiple entities due to expansion?
  • Compliance with increased changes in regulations and legislations?

Businesses who have switched to cloud accounting have reported the ability to improve performance, profitability and gain a competitive advantage through enhanced features and functionality.

Do we need to move to the cloud?

“If it ain’t broke, why fix it?” – that might be the saying, but could your finance management solution be holding the business back?

Depending on what you need from your accounting system, Sage 300 is a great solution that has no doubt done the job very well for a considerable time.

Sage Intacct is the ‘new kid on the block’ amongst Sage solutions, and while it doesn’t feature all the functionality Sage 300 users are familiar with, e.g. Payroll, Intacct still has the capability to do the job (and hundreds of others) through integration with Sage Intacct Marketplace.
