Through a series of significant product updates and enhancements, more customers will be able to experience increased productivity and smoother business processes.

Delivering against Sage’s ambition to become the trusted network for SMBs, the scale of Sage Intacct enables customers to automate processes, boost productivity and free up time to focus on running their businesses.

Sage Intacct Product Enhancements shared at Sage Transform include:

Further internationalization of Sage Intacct – Leveraging Sage’s global presence and compliance expertise, Sage Intacct is expanding its core financial offering into continental Europe, starting with France by the end of the year – the first non-English speaking country for Sage Intacct.

It complements the automated payment functionality, Vendor Payments powered by CSI, that was released earlier in 2022.

Forms are mailed to recipients, and tax information can be submitted all at once to the IRS with instant status updates. Customers stay current with federal and state tax law changes, reduce errors, and easily meet recently lowered IRS e-filing thresholds.

The solution is now available in the US in an early adopter program.

These product updates were shared today at the annual Sage Transform event, designed for the Sage Intacct community of customers and partners, taking place in Orlando, Florida, from October 10-14 2022.
