Sage brings award winning Sage Intacct cloud financial management to UK customers

Sage equips CFOs to lead digital transformation with data-driven insight in the cloud

Our UK research shows that CFOs are now expected to be ‘visionaries’, using and analysing data to predict the future direction of the organisation and drive digital transformation. This is the next stage of an evolution that has already seen them move from being historians to real time analysts.

London, UK, 6th November 2019 - Sage, the market leader in cloud business management solutions, is today launching its financial management platform Sage Intacct to customers in the UK. The native cloud platform gives CFOs and their teams the insights and automation they need to deliver a value-add, strategic service, keeping up with the ever-changing demands of the digital business environment.

Earlier this year, Sage Intacct scored the highest product score (4.63 out of five) for Core Financials for the Lower Midsize Enterprises use case in the 2019 Gartner report Critical Capabilities for Cloud Core Financial Management Suites for Midsize, Large, and Global Enterprises. This is the third straight year Sage Intacct has scored highest for that use case.

Sage Intacct provides finance professionals with:

  • A platform designed for and by finance professionals: Sage Intacct is a powerful cloud financial management platform, designed for finance professionals, providing deep multi-dimensional accounting, automation for efficient financial operations and sophisticated visibility for real-time decision making
  • Best of breed integration: Sage Intacct’s technology uses open APIs, making it easy to connect with third party cloud applications, including Salesforce, providing a highly extensible and scalable platform
  • Lower cost of ownership: Sage Intacct is a highly modular solution where customers pay for what they need, get more efficient and cost-effective implementations, world class security backups and disaster recovery delivering a lower total cost of ownership

Commenting on the local availability of Sage Intacct, Sabby Gill, Managing Director UKI at Sage, said: “Our UK research shows that CFOs are now expected to be ‘visionaries’, using and analysing data to predict the future direction of the organisation and drive digital transformation. This is the next stage of an evolution that has already seen them move from being historians to real time analysts.

“With two thirds of financial directors still making decisions based on gut feel - not data - the modern finance department needs access to high-capacity automated financial management, to enable CFOs to provide strategic direction on digital spending, managing risks, imposing governance and responding to regulatory change.

“The UK launch of Sage Intacct addresses this clear need in the market, providing finance professionals with the tools they need to meet the needs of the modern enterprise – all in the cloud.”

Aaron Harris, Chief Technology Officer, Sage, said: “Sage is committed to providing every customer, including finance leaders, with the tools and technologies they need to thrive every day. Sage Intacct brings trusted tools that enable them to not only deliver on their core competencies, but also be confident in driving the digital agenda throughout their organisation. The successful internationalisation of Sage Intacct will empower our global customers to accelerate growth, streamline financial processes, and deliver the operational insights needed to scale their business.”

Sage Intacct is named by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) as its first and only preferred provider of [US] financial applications. Sage Intacct consistently scores higher than any other ERP grid report and currently has a satisfaction rating of 98 out of 100 on G2.com.

New research by Sage, ‘CFO 3.0 - digital transformation beyond financial management highlights how the role of a CFO has changed from managing compliance and day-to-day operations to providing visionary leadership and driving digital transformation.
