Business Consulting

From financial historian to business strategist

Financial professionals in consulting organizations need to be able to ask hard questions, yet easily get answers. You need to know how to optimize client service levels, see which clients are most profitable, and determine how to best utilize staff. Intacct takes the heavy lifting out of financial management, plus gives you instant access to a full view of your business in real time. As a result, you can get deeper insight, tackle more strategic issues, and help keep your whole organization focused on your clients.

A full view of your business

Gain visibility into your whole business—not just finance—so you can create more accurate client estimates and make more informed decisions. With Intacct business accounting software, your jobs and projects are connected to your accounting transactions. That makes it possible to see metrics such as profitability by service type, utilization of billable resources, and direct and indirect costs of labor—for one project, some jobs, or all jobs. Intacct can also show you revenue by service type, by location, and other factors that are unique to your business.

Automatic revenue recognition

Consulting companies often charge different rates for different services. Adding to the accounting complexity, those services may each have different revenue recognition rules associated with them. Intacct offers automated, easy revenue recognition. So you can save staff time for more strategic work and easily get reports on the state of cash flow and deferred revenue.

Efficient accounting

Intacct streamlines time and expense entry, so your billable staff can get that task done quickly and remain focused on maximizing billable hours. It also automates time-consuming accounting tasks such as indirect costing, project accounting, and more. With greater efficiency, your data gets entered the right way at the right time, making it easier to get accurate Profit and Loss reports.

Easy, cloud-based access and integration

Our business consulting customers chose cloud financials for two main reasons. One, it saves time and increases productivity.  Remote staff can easily enter their time and expenses, view their tasks, and track their goals—logging in from any browser, on any device. Two, you can easily connect best-in-class systems with Intacct, automate the flow of data from one system to the next, and eliminate redundant data entry. Intacct also offers pre-configured integration with Salesforce CRM, so you can see opportunities before they become orders and automate the entire order-to-cash process.

We knew that a cloud system would provide improved access for our increasingly distributed workforce, and a system like Intacct would allow us to automate and enhance various manual processes to improve the productivity of our department.
