Highlighted Comments from Gil Garcia, CFO, EC Hispanic Media:

“As we expanded our business, it became clear that we needed a more flexible, cloud-based financial management system with better reporting functionality. After comparing Intacct against NetSuite and SAP, we were blown away by what we saw from Intacct.”

“Intacct has reduced the amount of time we spend preparing financial statements by at least a third, and cut our monthly consolidation and close process in half.”

“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.”
