Sage Intacct Cloud Accounting Software

So, what is Sage Intacct? It’s a leading cloud accounting solution from Sage which offers businesses robust sophisticated functionality to enable growth and scalability.

Dynamics 365 Business Central

Dynamics 365 Business Central offers both on-premises and cloud deployment options, allowing users to handle core accounting, sales, customer service and supply chain functions. However, as businesses grow, customisation, IT investment and additional licensing costs become necessary. 

To overcome limitations in financial reporting and real-time insights, users often turn to Sage Intacct for a comprehensive view of their organisation’s finances.

Dynamics Great Plains (GP)

Microsoft Dynamics GP is an on-premises accounting solution with features like financial reporting and inventory management, but as it nears its end of life, users encounter rising infrastructure and maintenance costs. Sage Intacct offers scalability, easy integration of new entities and users, industry-specific functionality, advanced reporting and real-time insights for business.

Sage 50

A reliable on-premises accounting solution for small businesses, Sage 50 provides core accounting features, invoicing and basic inventory management. 

Though some users experience issues when trying to grow, such as: 

  • Remote access issues.  
  • Higher transaction volumes or user traffic slowing the system down. 
  • Difficulty managing multiple entities.
  • Inflexible reporting involving multiple spreadsheets.

If simple tasks become a problem in Sage 50 it means it’s time to upgrade.

Sage 200

Sage 200 is a strong on-premises, or hosted option, accounting software favoured by small to medium businesses with manufacturing and distribution needs. However, adapting to changing needs or rapid growth is challenging, leading to high costs for IT infrastructure, support and upgrade costs.  

Overcoming these challenges, cloud-native Sage Intacct is an evergreen solution which provides scalability, advanced reporting, multi-entity and multi-currency management, real-time insights and efficiency improvements, utilising robust cloud infrastructure and advanced technology.

Oracle NetSuite

A cloud-based Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) solution, NetSuite is designed for medium to large sized businesses.  NetSuite can manage ERP, CRM and eCommerce but it lacks the flexibility and tools to support growth, with challenges including: 

  • Managing parent companies and subsidiaries in different systems. 
  • Reliance on spreadsheets for consolidated reporting. 
  • Expensive IT costs to customise the system (more suited to those with in-house IT resources). 

Sage Intacct users can manage multiple entities in one centralised system, with real-time, role-based access to reporting, dashboards and consolidated reporting across the organisation in minutes.

QuickBooks is a popular accounting solution for small businesses, offering cost-effectiveness and simplicity, but it lacks scalability and industry-specific features. Signs of outgrowing QuickBooks include the need for remote access, taking longer to close month-end, limited reporting capabilities and difficulty managing multiple entities and revenue recognition. 

Upgrading to a powerful solution like Sage Intacct provides intuitive remote access, real-time reporting and easy consolidations across multiple entities at the click of a button.

Designed for smaller businesses and freelancers, Xero handles basic core accounting needs but lacks capabilities for complex tasks like varied or subscription-based billing and managing new entities.  

Growing businesses can benefit from seeking a more comprehensive financial management solution, such as Sage Intacct, that offers multi-entity management, advanced billing management and automated revenue recognition.
