Accounting and Project Financials for IT Services Firms

The financial foundation for your profitable growth

Make the move from manual to automated project accounting

From bid to booking to delivery and billing, Sage Intacct saves your staff’s time for billable work – by as much as 50 percent. Now your finance team can focus on strategic tasks and get more done – without hiring more people for redundant data entry and workflows. With Sage Intacct, you automate exactly the project accounting processes you need: from tracking costs, time, and expenses to managing resources, billing, and revenue recognition.

Flexible project billing and revenue recognition

In project-based companies, virtually every contract has different billing terms. Whether it’s based on time and materials or fixed fees based on milestones, customers dictate how and when they want to be billed. Sage Intacct’s project billing automation improves accuracy by generating project invoices in the right format, using the right terms, and for the right amounts across a variety of fixed-price and T&M methods. Satisfy customer expectations and accounting requirements by keeping revenue recognition separate from billing and automatically calculating and posting based on milestones, schedules, or percentage completions.

Streamlined multi-entity consolidations

As your business adds more lines of services, expand into new regions, or acquire new business units, you need the simplicity to consolidate multiple entities instantly with the flexibility to slice and dice the data across entities. With Sage Intacct, you can automatically create multi-entity consolidations with a single click, saving you hours of time. At any time, you can analyze the data across entities to make timely decisions. Close your books faster and view interim summary figures at any time. Your financial statements are ready when you are.

A best-in-class solution

With Sage Intacct's cloud-based solution, your staff can log in from any browser, on any device, to enter time and expenses, view tasks, and track goals. Plus, you can easily connect your choice of other best-of-breed systems to Sage Intacct and automate the flow of data from one system to the next. For example, connect Sage Intacct with your Salesforce CRM solution to plan resources for upcoming projects that are still opportunities in Salesforce. When the opportunity is won, Sage Intacct automatically creates the order—without requiring you to re-enter data.
