Dimensions

A whole new perspective on your business

Intacct’s dimensions capability offers an entirely new way to track and report on financial and operational data, while simplifying your chart of accounts. With this flexible financial foundation, you gain quick access to the insights that speed decision-making and help drive growth.

Simplify your chart of accounts

Most financial solutions use a hard-coded structure for your chart of accounts. For example, to track three locations, five departments, and five projects, you’d need 75 account code combinations—and you’d end up with a complicated, unmanageable set of codes. Adding a new location or department could potentially force you to add hundreds of additional accounts. Intacct lets you keep it simple—you only need to set up your primary account codes. As your business changes, there’s no need to add hard-coded segment combinations.

Track your business like never before

Unlike traditional accounting systems, Intacct enables you to “tag” transactions as well as operational data with dimension values. Tagging with dimensions, instead of assigning transactions to hard coded individual accounts, enables you to add business context to your data easily. Once you create a dimension, you can use it for any transaction—general ledger, receivables, payables, time, revenue management, fixed assets, and more. As your business changes, add the dimensions you need to easily track what’s important to your business.  

Streamline your reporting and save time

Dimensions will fundamentally improve your reporting, making it easier for you to get fast answers to your business questions. Dimensions are integrated into the user interface of Intacct’s easy-to-use financial report writer. It’s simple to view performance from any new angle you need. As you create reports, simply use drop-down lists to filter, group and organize your data by dimensions. For example, you can go from a standard income statement to profitability by project or revenue by geography with a few clicks of the mouse.
 

Our biggest win from Intacct has been its ability to capture more data than we were able to track before. We’ve been able to expand our reporting and do valuable analysis that we never even would’ve attempted in our old accounting software because of the time required. In Intacct, we can look at any type of breakdown we need, and better manage the company through an accurate, holistic view of our financial and operational metrics.
