For finance professionals, your organization is in a constant state of change. From new rules set forth by the FASB/IASB to the changing target that is reporting at a growing organization, falling behind on the numbers can have dire consequences for your organization. This is why it pays to have a finance solution that will help you execute processes more effectively, not one that stands in your way.
By its very nature, NetSuite—as with any suite—is cumbersome and bulky, able to offer average or above-average answers to every software need, but rarely offering a top answer for a single department. Intacct, on the other hand, touts itself as a best-of-breed application, designed to constantly improve accounting alone while integrating with other applications that best fit your business needs.
Timeliness, Insight, and Flexibility
Take control of your finance organization with real-time, complete business visibility so that you can make well-informed decisions faster. Thanks to Intacct’s multi-dimensional GL architecture and easy-to-generate reports, you can always have access to information when you need and how you need to see it.
Compare this to NetSuite’s limiting reporting architecture, which makes achieving this level of visibility impossible without relying on secondary reporting tools or scripted customizations, and you have a clear favorite for organizations with your unique needs.
Make Changes—Without Relying on Internal or External IT Teams
Being able to pivot your business’s focus quickly requires the right information—fast. For finance and executive leadership, this means you can’t afford to be running to an internal or (costly) external team every time you need a new report or workflow. Intacct allows you to generate reports or create/modify workflows with point-and-click ease—quickly getting back to business.
With Intacct’s UI-driven configuration, you can change more aspects of your system without relying on customizations that need scripting, spreadsheet workarounds, or manual steps. So you can automate nearly any accounting complexity. Compare this to NetSuite, whose script-based functionality requires you to rely either on spreadsheets or consultants, the former is inaccurate and time-consuming, the latter costly.
More Updates, Fewer Problems
When a vendor is solely focused on finance, that means that it can pump all of its research and development into improving that one thing—finance. Compare this to a suite, which has to spread its R&D on a multitude of products—meaning not only slower updates but updates for products you might not even use.
Better yet, Intacct offers updates twice as frequently as NetSuite (four vs. two) and those updates don’t jeopardize integrations with other applications.
Focused on Growing Businesses; Able to Handle Global Players
If you have the budget and patience to implement and run a suite that relies heavily on IT customization, you’re more than welcome to put an extended period of time into a suite implementation project. However, if you need an affordable and rapid deployment that can scale with your organization, best-of-breed applications like Intacct offer an edge.
The Suite Life Isn’t Sweet.
Don’t get sold down the river in your new suite. If you’d rather get the latest and greatest faster and more affordably, it pays to work with the best vendors for each department’s needs. If you restrict yourself to a software suite, you restrict yourself to the results of a single vendor’s R&D investment. With Intacct and a best-in-class strategy, you can:
- More Innovation. Take advantage of an entire ecosystem of best-in-class solution providers that invest ten times as much in R&D.
- Get the best of everything. Every department in your organization has the freedom to choose the application that best fits its specific business and technology requirements.
- Integrate anything. Because we’re not trying to sell a suite, our priority is making it easy for you to integrate your solutions with Intacct. It’s so straightforward, more than 75% of Intacct customers have integrated Intacct with at least two other applications.
