Cloud-based accounting offers better integration, customization and mobility than desktop applications. It’s also a smart choice financially.
You don’t sweat every purchasing decision. If you had to agonize over every pen and computer mouse and coffee filter, you’d be wasting time that could be much better spent on more critical businesses processes.
But when you’re considering a major acquisition – additional office space or bulldozers or sophisticated network hardware — there are numerous factors that must be weighed. One of those, of course, is the financial return you hope to get on your investment (ROI).
While this determination isn’t always easy to arrive at, some decisions are easier than others. For example, you can make a fairly convincing case for moving your office operations into the cloud. And some businesses that have made the transition to Sage Intacct for their financial and reporting needs have achieved payback in less than six months. Many say they’ve gotten more than a 100 percent annual ROI.
Saving Time Saves Money
Those are pretty stunning percentages. But Intacct was built with economy in mind. Its design lends itself to a relatively quick recapturing of the subscription price.
How? Sage Intacct helps you:
Bring in more revenue. You’ll be able to figure out why you’re losing money in certain areas and resolve any problems by, for example, accelerating the receivable and collections processes. You’ll also be able to see where unnecessary expenses are occurring.
- Automate operations. If you’re still doing some accounting tasks manually, Intacct will help you finally automate your workflow and get real-time access to your financials.
- Do more in-depth analysis. No more sending QuickBooks reports to Excel and being tied to your office computer to work with them. Intacct does offer templates for standard financial reports, but its real strength lies in its customization tools. You choose the data you want to see and design your own output.
- Reduce your IT costs. You’ll no longer have to upgrade your hardware to accommodate your software’s requirements, so you’ll save on both physical equipment and staffing. You only need an internet connection to interact with your data in the cloud.
- Get up to speed fast. Thanks to Intacct’s FastTrack implementation services, your transition period should be minimal. It won’t be like switching from one desktop accounting application to another, since Intacct consists of multiple individual applications (General Ledger, Order Management, Accounts Payable, etc.). You can start with one and ease in slowly.
