Highlighted Comments from Mike Munson, Controller, STS International:
“We did a thorough evaluation of Intacct’s cloud-based software and hosted options from Microsoft and Sage. We were blown away by Intacct’s global consolidations capabilities and the flexible reporting and analytics, along with its overall scalability and the flexibility to plug into any other business system we needed. Having a true, modern cloud solution that offers seamless upgrades, as opposed to a hosted on-premises system, made it by far the best choice of the three.”
“One of our biggest benefits from Intacct is the consistency and reliability of our financial data. We never could have handled this huge load without Intacct. It is a true testament to the system’s scalability, and we have confidence that it will continue to support our growth as we add more entities and increase transaction volumes in the future.”
“Even with our continuous expansion and increasing complexity, we’ve only had to hire one additional finance person. And Intacct allows us to more evenly spread the day-to-day accounting work across the team so we can focus on analyzing our financial data and providing greater insight to our executives.”
