Fast-Growing Bay Area Services Firm Achieves Rapid 3-Month ROI with Sage Intacct Cloud Financial Management

Premier Talent Partners Uses Sage Intacct Software to Improve Operational Decisions and Scale Financial Workflows

We considered NetSuite and FinancialForce when we evaluated a replacement solution for Quickbooks, however, as a technology-centric organization, we immediately recognized that Sage Intacct was the best fit for our needs.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 31, 2018 – Sage Intacct, the innovation and customer satisfaction leader in cloud financial management solutions, today announced that Premier Talent Partners, a talent identification and acquisition services firm, achieved a fast three-month payback from their  Sage Intacct implementation. Sage Intacct is a solution available in Sage Business Cloud. With the software, Premier Talent Partners gained granular financial visibility into location profitability and other key performance indicators. In addition, the organization was able to scale the business with a small finance team by integrating Sage Intacct with other business applications that significantly streamlined processes.

Why Sage Intacct?

Premier Talent Partners operates five national offices and found it challenging to run the expanding business on their current solution, which didn’t integrate with the company’s other business applications. The finance team went in search of a new financial management solution that could support granular reporting across different locations and departments.

“We considered NetSuite and FinancialForce when we evaluated a replacement solution for Quickbooks, however, as a technology-centric organization, we immediately recognized that Sage Intacct was the best fit for our needs,” said Gina Brewster, Corporate Vice President of Finance of Premier Talent Partners. “We appreciated that Sage Intacct could seamlessly integrate with any tool we wanted, and since we are heavy users of Salesforce, Sage Intacct’s compatibility with the CRM system was especially important to us.”

Since selecting Sage Intacct, Premier Talent Partners has realized significant benefits including:

  • Saving $60k Through Increased Efficiency: After making the switch from QuickBooks, Premier Talent Partners realized the benefits to the automated financial processes in Sage Intacct by not having to add additional headcount, ultimately avoiding $60,000 in headcount costs.
  • Improved Financial Insight: Premier Talent Partners can tag individual transactions in Sage Intacct with specific clients, departments, employees, or locations, and then filter, group, and organize their financial data accordingly for better reporting and analytics.
  • Automated Invoice Preparation: Sage Intacct automatically pulls time sheets from Salesforce and creates accurate invoices for each client every week – slashing that weekly process from 12 hours of work down to six.
  • Faster Monthly Close: The finance team saves time with Sage Intacct’s automated allocations and has shortened the monthly close from 10 days to six.

“This newfound financial intelligence is helping to shift our culture towards one of more accountability and transparency, now that the managing directors at each individual office location have clear visibility into relevant performance indicators,” said Brewster.
