BAASS Business Solutions Partners with Sage Intacct Cloud ERP

By BAASS Author | Aug 7, 2012 9:06:00 AM

August 7, 2012 – BAASS Business Solutions is proud to announce that we have joined the Sage Intacct Business Partner Program to help drive adoption of cloud financial systems in Canada.

For the first time, our clients will have access to best in class cloud financial management and accounting software, something many clients have been requesting. Partnering with Sage Intacct enables us 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 BAASS.  

Sage Intacct

Sage Intacct’s award-winning software, used by over 5,000 small and midsize businesses worldwide, was selected after a thorough review of available systems. BAASS chose Sage 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 our target industries – including advanced revenue recognition, project accounting, and global consolidations. We were also impressed by the Sage Intacct channel program and the expertise demonstrated by Sage Intacct channels team.

Our President said; “We looked carefully at other products and programs but Intacct was far and away the best choice for us. We have a large client base in the nonprofit space, as well as in the services sector. Sage 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 Sage Intacct will be a terrific addition.”

Sage Intacct is well suited for nonprofits of all types, including charities, trade and membership associations, cultural institutions, charter schools, and faith-based organizations. Sage 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, Sage 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 Sage 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 life cycle.

“Our focus is restoring client confidence in ERP implementations through reliable software, impeccable customer service, and our fixed-fee, money-back guarantee,” said Wendy Gorrie, our General Manager at BAASS. “[Sage] 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. [Sage] 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 BAASS Business Solutions to the [Sage] Intacct Business Partner Program will help provide additional coverage in this region,” said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels for [Sage] 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.”
