Sage Intacct Advantage

rinehimerbaker’s customer recognized at Sage Intacct Advantage

At this year’s Sage Intacct Advantage conference, our customer MemberClicks was recognized as a recipient of the Sage Intacct Customer Success Award, an award designed to celebrate customers who have made dramatic improvements to their business and financial operations using Sage Intacct.

MemberClicks’ mission is to “Empower member-based organization to thrive through refreshing technology and a heart for service.” Their purpose-built suite of technology and customer-centric culture helps them achieve this allowing their customers to focus on serving its members.

For MemberClicks, 2017 was a year that largely focused on growth. With that came the challenges that all growing companies face and in 2018 they decided it was time for a new system that would help, not hinder, their company.

Sage Intacct was implemented for its ability to automate their order to cash process, manage customers’ subscriptions, and automate revenue management to keep them compliant with ASC 606, along with many other benefits!

Using Sage Intacct, MemberClicks was able to increase efficiencies throughout the organization with capabilities like:

  • Producing consolidated financials from multiple entities with various currencies in just a few clicks
  • Closing their books in just four days and spending the ten days they saved to analyze the data rather than reconcile it
  • Seamless order to cash process starting in Salesforce and creating contracts when deals are closed/won
    • Automating revenue and billing management across 3,000+ contracts
    • Automating customer payments through recurring subscription billing

Using Sage Intacct, they now have a consistent customer experience across the entire organization from orders to renewals to payments and everything in between. This consistency provides key members the visibility into every stage of the contracts’ lifecycle.

rinehimerbaker worked with MemberClicks to design and deploy this fully integrated solution centered around Sage Intacct. As a group, we were committed to helping migrate the company’s entire accounting operations onto a system up to the challenge of supporting their dynamic organization.

With MemberClicks recognized as one of a few winners selected out of hundreds of applicants, the journey for them proved worthwhile and demonstrates that success like this can be achieved by organizations of all sizes when you work with people and software that strive to achieve great results!

Congratulations again to MemberClicks from the entire rinehimerbaker team!

Sage Intacct Advantage Conference Recap

The annual Sage Intacct Advantage was an amazing event again this year with great opportunities to learn about the future of finance, network with our customers and the Sage Intacct team, and enjoy Las Vegas! Below are our team’s top takeaways from this year’s conference.

Sage Intacct Advantage

1) MemberClicks won a customer success Award- rinehimerbaker’s customer, MemberClicks was honored with the customer success award this year at Advantage! This award celebrates customers who have made dramatic improvements to their business and financial operations using Sage Intacct.  Congratulations Brent Stringer and team!


2) Change in Thinking-There was a strong focus on how the accounting function is moving from the age of information to the age of answers. Gone are the old ways of simply reporting “what happened”; now we are focused “why it happened” which is quickly moving to “what will happen next and what should we do about it”. This focus shows how finance teams are moving away from manual work and utilizing technology to deliver strategic value so that organizations can further their mission, grow and scale more quickly.


3) Eliminating the Close– Sage Intacct continues to look for innovative ways to make accountants lives easier. They are currently working on AI capabilities that are embedded directly into the Sage Intacct Intelligent GL.  The goal is to have continuous GL and eliminate the close. How? By using AI to accelerate the capture of data, to detect anomalies and ensure data is accurate and compliant, and to analyze and make intelligent decisions.


4) Sage People– This was an exciting announcement. Sage People is a new HR/benefit/onboarding/payroll solution that will be fully integrated with Sage Intacct. With this full integration, users will be able to quickly and easily view analytics, reports, graphs and dashboards related to the HR function.


5) Growth in Use– Currently 38% of the top CPA firms are using Sage Intacct. The continued growth of users shows how impactful Sage Intacct has been in revolutionizing the cloud accounting world throughout many different industries. The fastest growing verticals adopting Sage Intacct are hospitality and healthcare.


6) Orlando in 2020– Next year’s Advantage conference will be held in Orlando, FL the week of Oct 13th. For everyone that couldn’t make it this year, mark your calendars for next October. It will be a great week to learn, and network!

Open API

The Power of Sage intacct’s Open API and Maketplace

Sage Intacct currently has over 200 software solutions listed on its marketplace with that number growing weekly. Currently, 75% of their users have integrations with 2 or more of their software partners creating seamless solutions within the cloud. The marketplace partners cover a range of categories including payroll, CRM, time & expense, inventory management, finance & admin, e-commerce, and business management. They have been able to create this best-in-class solution for their customers by having a completely open API. 

What is an open API? 

An open API is a publicly available application programming interface that allows developers to create their own unique integration into a certain piece of software. This is the backend system that creates a gateway between two solutions that need to be able to automate sharing information. Sage Intacct has made its API open allowing software companies to easily create their own custom integration. When marketplace partners have the ability to create their own integrations it takes away the coding process for customers.  


What makes Sage Intacct’s open API unique? 

When creating their API Sage Intacct created the backend before the user interface which creates a very robust and stable solution for all marketplace partners to build out integrations. The open API is so stable that they guarantee their API won’t change in any of their upgrades throughout the years. They currently have a 15-year proven streak 

The seamless integration allows for all your cloud-based solutions to easily push information back and forth eliminating manual processes that can be time-consuming and create mistakes.  This also means that your IT department won’t have to spend valuable time maintaining and installing new solutions. All of Sage Intacct’s main partners are plug and play. This means your accounting team can easily turn on new software and for those integrations that have a slightly higher amount of customization your VAR partner ( rinehimerbaker) can have you up and running quickly. 

The marketplace offers 3rd party solutions that allow connections between smaller software solutions that haven’t yet built out their own integration into Sage Intacct’s API. These additional connection solutions make the marketplace rare and powerful for its customers.  It also offers huge cost-savings to customers by being able to skip hiring an outsourced service to build out custom integration.

Sage Intacct features a multi-dimensional ledger system which is different than the typical linear ledger. A key benefit is the ability to track and report transaction data based on your company specific attributes. Examples include location, department, project, vendor, customer, or a customized attribute tailored to fit your needs. Sage Intacct is capable of handling not only financial data but also operational data. You have 8 dimensions that are easily sorted to slice and analyze your data every way needed to influence company decisions. rinehimerbaker has been able to change the reporting game for their customers with the multi-dimensions. For one customer we can track their restaurant, club, and total all in one P&L which was near impossible before Sage Intacct. Another customer can see all three business locations on one P&L as well as total business.  


The financial report writer also provides the ability to drill down within a report to the exact copy of an invoice giving visibility that is unmatched by other cloud ERP solutions. A user can easily click on an entry and see the copy of the original invoice allowing complete visibility into your company’s finances.  


Everything within Sage Intacct’s financial reporting is in real-time. When a transaction is uploaded a user can simply refresh their screen and it is immediately available to see. This eliminates wasted time waiting on items to become available and allows you to immediately react to your business.
