Sage Intacct Starter Edition – Faster, cost-saving implementation

Sage Intacct Starter Edition is a structured, focussed services package created for small businesses who have outgrown their accounting solution (such as Sage 50, Sage 200, Sage 300, Xero, Quickbooks, Dynamics GP) and want Sage Intacct’s core functionality up and running quickly.

So, how quick is quick? Well, the Starter Edition implementation requires 50 hours of professional services time from us over a 10-week period.

This allows you to go live in just 6 weeks followed by 4 weeks of post-launch support!

How is Sage Intacct Starter Edition different?

With such a rapid turnaround, we understand if this sounds too good to be true.

But Sage Intacct Starter Edition has been made possible thanks to three intuitive adjustments to the Sage Intacct implementation structure:

  1. A pre-configured template designed around Intacct’s experience of best practices for core applications;
  2. A pre-defined, fixed scope and solution definition;
  3. And a fixed project plan with a 5-Stage Journey.

Is Starter Edition right for your business?

Interested in Sage Intacct Starter Edition but unsure if it is right for your business? Sage Intacct Starter Edition is perfect if:
