ORLANDO – Nov. 11, 2014 – More than 1,300 Intacct customers, partners, and employees have gathered in Orlando this week for Intacct Advantage 2014, the company’s annual customer and partner conference.

“It’s exciting to see how dramatically the conference has grown over the past few years,” said Clark Newby, VP of Marketing. “Our ecosystem of customers and partners has expanded significantly and each year Advantage provides a great opportunity to come together to learn best practices and network with their peers.
