We’ve streamlined our financial processes across the board, which saves about $45,000 in headcount each year despite our 53% revenue growth and significant transaction volume increase since adopting Intacct.

Crossref’s Results with Intacct:

  • $45,000 in annual headcount savings 
  • Saving 50+ hours monthly with streamlined processes
  • Scaling easily despite membership and revenue growth

Highlighted comments from Lisa Hart, director of finance and operations at Crossref:

“After deciding to make a switch and narrowing down our options to NetSuite and Intacct, we felt that Intacct was the right financial management choice for us because of its unique multi-ledger approach as well as its strategy to easily integrate with other best-of-breed tools. What’s made us love Intacct even more over time has been the personal attention that the company’s expert, dedicated team provides at every step along the way.”

“We’ve streamlined our financial processes across the board, which saves about $45,000 in headcount each year despite our 53% revenue growth and significant transaction volume increase since adopting Intacct. More importantly, we’ve reduced potential errors and liability by having more accurate, reliable financial data about our business in Intacct.”

“Thanks to the financial insight we have in Intacct, we can confirm the viability of new offerings quickly—even for products that are revenue neutral, but strategically contribute to Crossref’s mission to serve the scholarly community. This type of reporting has been invaluable for both our board of directors and senior staff, who monitor our income across various streams in order to help make critical hiring and pricing decisions.”
