Comments on the News

 "This is a huge milestone for financial systems – moving away from the 'anti-social' processes of legacy, on-premises software to the more modern, social approach of the cloud," said Aaron Harris, CTO and VP of Engineering, Intacct. "Customers rely on Intacct to complete mission critical accounting and back office business processes. The addition of Salesforce Chatter Inside Intacct will facilitate greater collaboration, expedite decision making, and ultimately accelerate these processes – making companies more competitive."

  • "Companies are looking to transform every part of their organization to thrive in the social era," said Nasi Jazayeri, EVP and GM, Salesforce Chatter, salesforce.com. "Now Intacct's users can leverage Salesforce Chatter to deliver a unified social experience that drives speed and productivity across the front and back office."
  • "As a fast-growing company, anything we can do to be more proactive in our decision making is critical," said Rob Chesney, COO, Trunk Club. "We are strong believers in leveraging social technology in our business. The addition of Salesforce Chatter Inside Intacct will completely change the way we interact with our financial data, enabling us to be more collaborative in our financial processes and in how we use financial and operational data to run our business."

 Transforming Finance for the Social Era

 Traditional, legacy financial systems were designed well before the advent of social technology. These outdated, on-premises systems create functional silos that discourage social activity and impair productivity. The addition of Chatter to Intacct provides a unique social layer that encourages users to collaborate and work together with financial data – speeding business processes, eliminating communication barriers, and improving decision making. This new social layer provides Intacct customers an easier way to share files and provides a more comprehensive and searchable history of information exchange – a critical component of compliance and auditability.

 With Salesforce Chatter Inside Intacct, customers will now be able to:

  •  Leverage a common social platform across CRM and finance
  • Create a unified social feed for all enterprise data
  • Develop more productive and efficient workflows powered by collaboration
