“The key to business growth is having the ability to understand the performance of your organization in real time, so that you can quickly make the right decisions,” said Rob Reid, managing director of Sage Intacct, in a May 2017 press release.

As Reid points out, the topic of real-time data is in the air. In fact, while the three keynote addresses at Sage Intacct Advantage 2017 will focus on nonprofit, services, and software/SaaS industries, all three keynotes will illustrate how having access to accurate information drives better decisions that optimize growth. 

Access to real-time data is important not only for your finance and operations teams but also for your employees on the frontlines, who are submitting purchase requests and approvals on the go. As you prepare for Sage Intacct Advantage, we’d like to share with you how Sage Intacct and Ariett can work together to help you make the right business decisions.

Finance and Operations Use Metric-Based Dashboards and Reporting to Support Growth.

With a unique accounting architecture, Sage Intacct helps nonprofit, software, and service-based organizations to track the key financial and operational metrics for running their organization.  Intuitive financial dashboards deliver key metrics from almost any perspective – your business drivers, entity, product, project, location, channel, and more. 

The GL supports eight standard dimensions – with the option to add custom dimensions – that can be tagged to a transaction, making it much easier, for example, to report on budgets by project or revenue by location.  CEOs, CFOs, and investors can gain insight from 150 standard reports, which include data visualization for highlighting important trends.

Ariett’s Procurement Dashboards Help the Team Make Budget-Aware Purchasing Decisions.

Like Sage Intacct’s financial dashboards, Ariett’s metric-based reporting dashboards with embedded BI reporting are customizable and interactive, helping software, nonprofit, and business service organizations to view their purchasing data in a way that works for them.

For example, Ariett’s embedded BI reports show the status of pending requisitions, helping finance or department managers to forecast spending by department, dollar, or vendor. In addition, Ariett offers 80+ Standard Reports that can be modified, scheduled, and output to Excel, PDF, or file formats.

Requisition/PO, vendor contract, and payables dashboards accessible from any device can complement Sage Intacct by extending procurement decisions to your mobile workforce.  For example, a CFO in a nonprofit organization can drill from Ariett’s Top Vendor Spend Dashboard on her tablet to view committed requisition amounts by department, program, or Sage Intacct entity/project. 

Ariett Purchase to Payment for Sage Intacct offers customers a unified platform to view and manage all expenses - from purchase requisitions, to POs, to vendor contracts, to AP invoices, to expense reports, to electronic payments.
