SAN JOSE, Calif. and BURNABY, B.C. – Aug. 7, 2012 – Plus Computer Solutions, a Sage reseller and ERP software consulting specialist, has joined the Intacct Business Partner Program to help drive adoption of cloud financial systems in Canada. For the first time, Plus clients will have access to best in class cloud financial management and accounting software – something many clients have been requesting. Partnering with Intacct enables Plus to satisfy this demand while also providing a system designed specifically for small and midsize businesses in the nonprofit and services industries, two important vertical markets for Plus.
Plus has been selling software to businesses in Canada since 1991, and has deep roots in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The Plus team, led by President Glen Mund and general manager Wendy Gorrie, has performed more than 2,000 software implementations built on Sage ERP, CRM, HRMS, and Fixed Assets solutions. Plus has been an Accounting Today Pacesetter the past four years, a Bob Scott VAR Star the past three years, and a CDN Channel Elite Award winner on several occasions.
Intacct’s award-winning software, used by over 5,000 small and midsize businesses worldwide, was selected by Plus after a thorough review of available systems. Plus Computer Solutions chose Intacct for its ease of use, focus on nonprofit organizations and services-based businesses, and functionality that improves processes which are key to companies in its target industries – including advanced revenue recognition, project accounting, and global consolidations. Plus was also impressed by the Intacct channel program and the expertise demonstrated by Intacct channels team.
“We looked carefully at other products and programs but Intacct was far and away the best choice for us,” said Mund, who leads the sales and marketing efforts at Plus. “We have a large client base in the nonprofit space, as well as in the services sector. Intacct lends itself well to nonprofits due to its unmatched general ledger and financial reporting capabilities; and to services-based businesses for its robust project accounting functionality. Our current offerings don’t handle these processes well, so Intacct will be a terrific addition.”
Intacct is well suited for nonprofits of all types, including charities, trade and membership associations, cultural institutions, charter schools, and faith-based organizations. Intacct applications help nonprofits streamline grant, fund, project, and donor accounting with specialized nonprofit financial management and accounting capabilities. For example, nonprofits can often reduce the time required to manage fund accounting by as much as 90%, and increase overall finance department productivity by 25% or more.
For service-based businesses, Intacct Project Accounting software provides comprehensive capabilities to unify, automate, and streamline the financial and operational processes throughout the services delivery lifecycle. Combine that with Intacct’s best-in-class core financial applications and these companies can maximize performance and profitability, provide better service to clients, and boost financial visibility for better real-time decision making throughout the project-to-cash lifecycle.
“Our focus is restoring client confidence in ERP implementations through reliable software, impeccable customer service, and our fixed-fee, money-back guarantee,” said Gorrie. “Intacct allows us to deliver on the software component of this promise by providing the industry’s best cloud financial management system for small and midsize businesses. Intacct will enable us to become experts in cloud financial software for our key industries like nonprofit and professional services.”
“Canada is an emerging growth area for Intacct and the addition of Plus Computer Solutions to the Intacct Business Partner Program will help provide additional coverage in this region,” said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels for Intacct. “Our companies are a great fit, as we share a mutual focus on small and midsize businesses and in the belief that cloud financial software is the best choice for these organizations.”
