SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 10, 2017 – Accounting firms are increasingly turning to cloud accounting software to enhance the services they offer to clients. The Intacct Accountants Program, offered in partnership with CPA.com, continues to attract the cream of the crop based on the 2017 Accounting Today Top 100 Firms list. In the recently released report, 31 of the Top 100 firms use Intacct to service their clients—up from 28 last year.
Bringing best-in-class accounting capabilities to complement a firm’s expertise, the Intacct Accountants Program is designed to empower progressive, high-quality firms to deliver the high-value accounting and financial advisory services clients need to grow and succeed. Fostering a collaborative environment, Intacct provides access to real-time information, dashboards, and reports that enable users to share forward-thinking insight and hold a trusted advisor role. With the Intacct Accountants Program, firms can take their services beyond transactional work, adding more value, and building stronger client relationships.
Intacct is the preferred provider of financial applications for CPA.com, an AICPA company. Together, the companies have created the Intacct Accountants Program, which gives participating firms a significant competitive advantage in delivering client advisory services. In addition to Intacct being a leading technology platform, both CPA.com and Intacct are committed to offering practice management and professional development, training, and resources to help firms build successful client practices.
Showing the increased reach and popularity of Intacct, a growing number of the top accounting firms have also created consulting practices based on Intacct. In fact, 12 of the Top 50 firms are also Intacct value-added resellers. This enables them to help larger clients select and implement cloud financial applications.
“In an increasingly competitive profession, where client expectations are on the rise, many firms are searching for ways to provide more value. Client accounting and advisory services are an area that provides an opportunity to do just that,” said Michael Cerami, vice president of strategic alliances for CPA.com. “Outsourced services are greatly in demand by business owners who want to reduce time on work unrelated to their core business, and it makes sense they would turn to their accounting partner for expertise and strategic advice.”
“Intacct has a long history of working with accounting firms and we look forward to continuing the expansion of this channel to help additional firms bring the benefits of cloud accounting to their clients,” said Kevin Cumley, director of the Intacct Accountants Program. “Working closely with CPA.com on the Intacct Accountants Program is incredibly valuable as we uncover new ways to help firms take advantage of the growth opportunity around outsourced client accounting and advisory services.”
