Intacct - Great Accounting Software

2017-07-18

Really easy conversion from Quickbooks!

Pros

There are always a few things with software that aren't perfect for your needs but this user interface is so easy to work around and has all the things you'd want it to have.

Cons

It can be restrictive at times. It's a pro and con but it's restrictive about things I don't want it to be which can sometimes cause problems.

Intacct is a great product but do your Due Diligence First

2016-08-26

Pros

It's pretty easy to use and more robust than Quickbooks.

Cons

The tech support. I wish you could just dial a number and get an answer. You always have to put in a ticket, which is time consuming.

I would actually recommend that you ensure all of your current processes can be handled by Intacct without them having them customize the modules in order for you to use them.

Moving back to QB

2018-05-17

Pros

The reporting looks professional and I liked using the dashboard. I like how easy it is to use and the customer support.

It is an expensive software system, when we found that QuickBooks was simply a better option for our business.

Intacct is relatively easy to use, simple interface, multi-entity flexibility. Overall good product.

2018-05-07

We transitioned from Quickbooks to Intacct because of its abiilty to handle multi-entity and inter-company transactions.

Pros

The way it handles multi-entity and inter-company transactions. Simple user interface. Easy to navigate and correct entries. Great JE upload feature.

Cons

Report writer is a bit too complicated for someone not well versed in report writers. Would be great if it worked more like a pivot table. My biggest complaint is not being able to transact in the subledger directly to a bank account.

Looking for a Financial Softare to replace QB?

2018-09-04

Overall, we have had a good experience. However, we have an implementation team that is working with us to make sure that our input from QB is seamless.

Pros

We are just implementing this system - replacing quickbooks - and it is streamlining our business.

Cons

This is a true accounting system that truly automates financial procedures. However, it might confuse the non-accounting folks in your office. Some processes can be more cumbersome than an automated QB system (for example: credit card and ACH processing).

Great cloud based accounting software

2014-12-12

We have been extremely happy with our transition off of Quickbooks.

Pros

Cloud Based (no maintenance)....Recurring transaction and customized reporting capabilities are a plus.

Cons

Wish some of the interfaces where more customizable, but overall not a lot of cons.

Decent ERP software for medium, medium-large companies

2018-10-10

Hard to get used to in the beginning (I transitioned from QuickBooks), but as you get more and more used Intacct can be very resourceful and more powerful than other, more conventional ERP systems.

Pros

All the features, and integration capacity with other software.

Cons

Can be clunky and not user-friendly in not a seasoned user. Some add-on features (like FA modules) have a lot to desire in order to be useful.

Intacct is the leading accounting software for business!

2018-03-23

Pros

We switched from Quickbooks and this software just blew it away.

Cons

There are odd restrictions with the software. It won't let you use bank accounts as GL accounts which may be for a good reason but works in our business.

From Quickbooks to Intacct

2014-12-18

We are a global company with 5 different sub-companies and we needed a better solution than Quickbooks for consolidations and multiple currencies.

Pros

The reporting is usable once the configurations and parameters are set up properly.

Cons

Requires quite a bit of work to get off the ground. Customization of templates requires duplication if using order entry and accounts receivable (i.e. a different template with different codes for an invoice).

Complex & In depth accounting

2017-05-13

Pros

Intacct does what Quickbooks and NetSuite cannot, it gives you reports out of the box without need for extreme customization.

Cons

Intacct does require you to think about the structure of your data, whether you're new to your business or been running it for a while. The system expects you to operate within their rails and that can be a learning curve for some.

Quite useful to have the rev rec templates in place

2014-12-15

The system itself is not that hard to figure out, but going back and tracing entries you've made is not so easy. Correcting errors is next to impossible, resulting in a number of journal entries that would otherwise be unnecessary. As a software development firm, it is quite useful to have the Rev Rec templates in place. Again, correcting errors is a hassle. I also am less than enamored with their reports. For instance, it would be lovely if reports like A/R Aging had drill-down capabilities. And I have not found the Dashboards very useful; again, there are no drill-down capabilities. I have been working on the preview activity, have had issues getting on (mainly user-error)., and have always received a gracious and prompt response from their support people. It makes Rev Rec easy with the templates in place when the invoices are generated. The support people have always been very responsive to any inquiries I have sent them.

Pros

It is a fairly easy program to figure out if you have any kind of experience with programs such as QuickBooks, and there are added features that QB doesn't have, but it is much less forgiving with any clerical errors you may make.

Cons

It is difficult to go back and make changes to entries that have been made, especially after payment has been received on an invoice, for instance. I would like to be able to go back and make corrections to clerical errors that have been made, with

After almost finishing our first year on Intacct after a transition from Quickbooks, I am not sure how we lived so long without it.

Pros

In order to take full advantage of what the system has to offer, it often takes investing time to learn the terminology and set up to use it to the best of the software ability

We implemented Intacct when we outgrew Quickbooks. Some of the benefits for us are more sophisticated organizational structure reporting capability and the ability to route invoices, which is much more efficient and has allowed us to become nearly paperless.

Waiting for Improvements in UI

2014-12-11

I do like how this is a cloud solution, however, there are some very basic functions that it is missing -things that you can do in Quickbooks. The price for what you get isn't bad, but I would not make the choice to move to this platform if it was my decision.

Pros

Cloud computing - accessible anywhere. Reports easily exportable to excel

Cons

Cannot email out invoices - major deal breaker (well you can email them but you can't change the generic text, which makes it unusable). There are many screens that force you to use your mouse to enter items, you can't tab.

Intacct Accounting Software

2016-11-03

We started using Intacct on 07-01-16 and have now used it for 4 months.

Pros

Intacct is very customizable. Intacct allows you to attach documents (pdf, excel, word, etc) to each transaction. Intacct can have many dimensions which gives it a lot of functionality. Intacct allows you to schedule automatic emailed reports.

Cons

The cost to implement is more that other software's like QuickBooks or Cougar Mountain.
