SAN JOSE, Calif. – Jan. 30, 2012 – Sage Intacct, a leading provider of cloud financial management and accounting software, today announced record results for 2011 and for the company's second fiscal quarter, ended December 31. For the full calendar year in 2011, Sage Intacct’s new bookings increased by 128% over the prior year. For the second fiscal quarter, Sage Intacct delivered 80% growth – resulting in an all time record quarter for both bookings and revenue.

More than 1,000 new organizations adopted Sage Intacct in 2011. This brings the total number of organizations reaping the benefits and tremendous business value of Sage Intacct and cloud computing to more than 5,000, with more than 30,000 overall operating entities.

Explosive growth in the company’s channel program continues to be a key driver for the business. Sage Intacct’s channel partners delivered outstanding results in the quarter, including a six-fold increase in new bookings over the same period in 2010. Sage Intacct’s value added resellers closed nearly as many new customers during the quarter as in the previous four quarters combined.

During the past year, Sage Intacct solidified its position as the best financial applications to meet the sophisticated financial management and accounting requirements of companies that are stretching beyond the capabilities of QuickBooks®. Sage Intacct also extended its lead as the most popular cloud financial applications for companies using Salesforce CRM, with more than 2.5 times more positive reviews than the next contender on the AppExchange. Organizations that had been using on-premises mid-market financial applications from Microsoft, Sage, Deltek, and Blackbaud also continued to move to the cloud with Sage Intacct.

The company’s financial results also reflect an extremely high level of customer satisfaction. Sage Intacct has achieved one of the major milestones of cloud computing by now attaining extremely high customer retention combined with increased use. Sage Intacct’s existing customers are adding new users and subscribing to more applications in record numbers, and close to 100% of Sage Intacct’s mid-market customers renewed their subscriptions during the year – so much so that the company would be growing revenue faster than its on-premises software competitors just from customer add-ons and upgrades.

"Sage Intacct’s momentum is incredible – from acquiring new customers in record numbers, to becoming the cloud partner of choice for the channel, to exceeding the expectations our existing customers and partners, we continue to set the high bar for our industry,” said Robert Reid, CEO of Sage Intacct. “With our outstanding growth, we continue to invest in delivering unrivaled innovation which provides significant business value and high return on investment for our customers.”
