This software has helped us gain a tremendous level of detail and insight into where we are spending too much money and also where we have leftover pockets of money. For example, we found out that we spent over 5K on donuts the past year. That is just absurd!

What's the difference between Sage Intacct and QuickBooks for nonprofits?

QuickBooks was built for the needs of small businesses. When nonprofits grow and become more complex, they often outgrow the capabilities of QuickBooks and need a more robust solution like Sage Intacct. Some of the biggest differences our customers notice when upgrading to Sage Intacct from QuickBooks for nonprofits, includes:

  • Anytime, anywhere business visibility: Real-time visibility into metrics is essential for faster financial decisions. QuickBooks offers canned reports — and no dashboards — so your visibility is limited, and you’re often forced to make decisions based on outdated information.
  • Increased productivity: Automation and workflows allow you to streamline processes to save time and reduce errors. And many nonprofits naturally and gradually develop sophisticated accounting requirements (such as revenue recognition and multi-entity consolidation). If QuickBooks is the financial foundation, that often means cumbersome workarounds because QuickBooks doesn't provide built-in capabilities for these complex processes, leaving users over-reliant on spreadsheets and manual data entry and re-entry.
  • Scalability: As your organization grows, you need an accounting system that can grow with you. Sage Intacct provides a scalable architecture that allows for an increase in transaction volume and the ability to easily add new entities, a multi-ledger system, and robust financial controls to ensure compliance and auditability. Despite its popularity as a business application for small businesses, QuickBooks simply wasn’t designed for growing nonprofits that need advanced functionality to manage sophisticated processes.
How much does Sage Intacct cost?

Sage Intacct is a highly configurable, complete, modern cloud-based software solution that accommodates the needs of nonprofit organizations of varying sizes and complexity. Your cost for Sage Intacct will depend on the size of your accounting team and the modules you choose to implement. On average, our nonprofit customers spend about $6,000 to $35,000 on their annual subscription. Implementation typically costs one to one and a half times the amount of your first-year’s annual subscription.

But cost is a relative term. With efficiency and productivity gains, our nonprofit customers state that on average the software pays for itself in less than 6 months. For the nonprofits below and many more, Sage Intacct has been a worthwhile investment. With Sage Intacct…
