ATLANTA – Jan. 14, 2020 – Sage (FTSE: SGE), the market leader in cloud business management solutions, today announced that Sage Intacct was named a Leader in the new IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Subscription Management Applications 2019–2020 report (doc #US44867519, December 2019). Download an excerpt of the IDC MarketScape report with analysis on Sage Intacct.
The need for subscription management applications has exploded as business models shift from products to subscription services. The solutions that many organizations are using were built for transactional, product-based businesses and don’t solve the needs of subscription-based businesses. Additionally, ASC 606 and IFRS15 bring new standards and increased complexity and cost, especially for companies with a variety of revenue streams.
The IDC MarketScape evaluates players in the subscription management solutions based on capabilities, market presence, and vendor strategy. Sage Intacct, a solution available in Sage Business Cloud, was recognized for customer value delivered, its onboarding and implementation process, a track record for customer success, and the product roadmap. Specifically, the report notes that companies should consider Sage Intacct when: “…you value having your subscription management application built into your financial management platform for the benefits of analytics, integration, procurement, and vendor relationship.”
“The trend from selling widgets on a one-time basis to selling recurring service-driven solutions via subscription is transforming many sectors of the economy, including software, services, and healthcare. Companies that want to adopt this business model should leverage subscription management technology such as Sage Intacct which can automate the entire quote-to-cash process and provide one system of record across all one-time and subscription transactions,” said Mark Thomason, Research Director for Digital Business Models and Monetization.
Sage Intacct is a cloud-based ERP system focused on medium-sized businesses. Native integration to Salesforce and robust subscription revenue management and contract and subscription billing modules connect the customer lifecycle in one subscription system of record from quote to performance obligations, billing, revenue recognition, GAAP and SaaS reporting, and financial forecasting. Additionally, Sage Intacct enables companies to unify their billing across perpetual, SaaS, usage, and services. With one subscription system of record across their customers’ lifecycle, businesses can more easily scale their organizations, accelerate cash flow, and comply with regulations
