When it comes to making the right choice for cloud financial software, accountants, CPAs, and other financial pros rely on the judgment of the AICPA, the accounting profession’s independent organization that sets high standards for accounting software.

NetSuite says you have a batch-processing architecture. Is this true?

Sage Intacct was designed from the start for real-time GAAP accounting. Our modern SaaS architecture is one of the many reasons that companies around the globe choose Sage Intacct. When users click the "Post" button on a transaction entry page, the entry is posted and committed to both the source record and the general ledger. This happens on a transaction by transaction - not batch - basis. Sage Intacct gives companies the option to enable approvals (“batch”) or post in real-time. With NetSuite, it is a forced process.
