Insights from Virtual Hold: Why our CEO is an advocate of Intacct

I recently had an opportunity to chat with Jim Bokar, director of finance and controller at Virtual Hold Technology (VHT) and an Intacct MVP, about their use of Intacct and how their CEO utilizes the platform. Virtual Hold Technology delivers solutions at the heart of the customer experience, enabling contact centers to maximize the opportunities that come from customer interaction, regardless of channel.

One of the more interesting things Jim let me know was that not only is he a huge fan of Intacct – so is their CEO, Wes Hayden. Wes loves having access to reports in Intacct and drilling down into detail for decision making purposes, rather than reaching out to finance with frequent ad hoc requests for information.

A Behind the Scenes Look at the Intacct Accountants Program

Accounting firms have long since been part of Intacct’s core target market. Hundreds of accounting firms rely on Intacct to serve their clients successfully, including over 30 percent of the Top 100 firms. In recognition of this, in 2009, the AICPA and its subsidiary, CPA.com, named Intacct as its first and only preferred provider of financial applications.

Intacct recently welcomed Kevin Cumley in September 2014 as the new director of the Intacct Accountants Program. A valuable asset since, Kevin plays a large role in helping Intacct continue its growth with accounting firms and further strengthen Intacct’s relationship with CPA.com.

I sat down with Kevin recently to discuss his new role and how his time at Intacct has been going.

Best Practice Trends for Nonprofits: Automating Your Processes

This is the final post in this series on nonprofit best practice trends. We’ve covered some key areas that you’ll want to make sure to consider as you plan and execute in the coming year. This week’s topic is automating your processes.

I recently sat down with Sophy Lai, the CFO at AWS Truepower, LLC and an Intacct MVP. AWS Truepower is a long-time leader and innovator in renewable energy providing technical consulting, software, data, and advisory services for the wind and solar energy markets.

AWS Truepower had been struggling with an outdated, on-premises accounting solution from Sage, when Sophy was tasked with upgrading the company to a modern, cloud-based financial system. After evaluating multiple solutions, AWS Truepower selected Intacct and today they are thriving.

The challenge comes in how to effectively scale for growth and impact. With the dynamic nature of the nonprofit environment, how are nonprofits adapting to meet the needs?

Best Practice Trends for Nonprofits: Diversify Your Funding

This is the second topic in our blog series on Best Practice Trends for Nonprofits. Sustainable funding is critical to your organization as you scale and plan for the future. It’s easy to get used to traditional types of funding – and become dependent on them. Most nonprofits are heavily – or even fully – dependent on philanthropy. Philanthropy alone is no longer sustainable for most growing nonprofit organizations. Developing a sustainable funding strategy should be a priority as you budget, plan, and prepare for the future.
