The Need for Flexible Financial Applications


Not all companies are created the same. Your business is unique. Shouldn’t your financial applications be flexible enough to adapt to your unique business needs? You shouldn't have to bend over backwards to adjust to your financial system.

As I noted in my post last week on the three Intacct customers that recently completed IPOs, having a flexible financial system is critical to success. When you’re making the change to a new accounting and financial management system, the last thing you want to do is box yourself in with rigid functions and inflexible processes that might require another system switch as your business changes down the road.

This is an area Intacct takes very seriously. We’ve designed our applications to provide exceptional flexibility and easily adapt to your business needs as you grow and evolve. For example:
Flexible workflows and business processes… A large portion of our new customers when switching to Intacct either don’t have many formalized processes in place, or those processes aren’t exactly based on industry best practices. When moving to Intacct, these companies typically see immediate process improvements with our pre-packaged templates, best-practice charts of accounts, dashboards, and a library of more than 150 pre-built financial reports. However, even more importantly, they can easily tailor, extend, and integrate Intacct to match their precise needs and processes. It is that combination of a prescriptive approach coupled with adaptability that makes Intacct so powerful.
Highly customizable system… Intacct puts you in complete control – enabling you to tailor workflows, data fields, transaction definitions, invoices, report formats, and much more to precisely match your business. You can control how the system handles specific accounting treatments. You can tailor reports and role-based dashboards to meet the needs of each user. If someone tries to tell you cloud-based systems can’t be customized, clearly they have never seen Intacct.
Extensive integration… Intacct takes advantage of open web services to enable you to connect Intacct to all your current and future business systems – both on-premises and on-demand. The Intacct Marketplace offers our customers a growing pool of integrated applications you can use to easily and cost-effectively assemble a broader, more valuable portfolio of best-in-class applications that work for your business. You can even build entirely new applications using our web-based development tools.

In the latest addition to the Intacct YouTube Channel, you can hear first-hand from several Intacct customers and partners about how they benefit from Intacct’s “infinite flexibility”…
