Why is Acumatica ERP Winning More Awards Than Intacct?

Intacct is not an integrated ERP solution. It is known for its robust accounting solution developed by and for CPA’s.  In comparison Acumatica is a true Cloud Based ERP integrating all end to end business processes; and value chain drivers including “sell”; “deliver” and “collect". On a relative price performance basis Acumatica is a clear winner. Intacct is priced per named/concurrent users. Increase number of users of software, and the price goes up linearly. That is not the case with Acumatica. Their pricing is based on “size of server” or transactional volume; and therefore allows “unlimited users”.

What are well established consulting companies like Gartner & Nucleus who compare ERP companies saying?

Nucleus Research in its annual ERP Value Matrix 2017, placed Acumatica as the leader when compared other Enterprise Resource Planning Solution provider’s including Intacct. More specifically: “Because of year to year increase in functionality in its solution (Editions), Acumatica will continue to deliver value and positive return on investment similar to what it demonstrated in 2016”.

What kind of companies have migrated from Intacct to Acumatica? Why?

Here are examples of companies that preferred Acumatica over Intacct.

Pool Source, Nashville TN: “Both Acumatica and Intacct offered SaaS solutions, but only Acumatica offered a growth-friendly pricing structure with unlimited users as well as local support critical for success”.

Samuel Hahn, VP Finance; Parallels preferred Acumatica over Intacct. Acumatica’s ERP solution allowed consolidation of results across multiple entities. Financial reports are available across several systems, multiple currencies; and office locations. Combined these advantages with a web based solution and a native xRP platform. This allowed Parallels to integrate with existing legacy applications and add more capabilities down the road.

Jerry Wallace, Director of Operations; Great Commission Publications (GPC): “They compared many ERP providers including Intacct, NetSuite, Microsoft, and other major SMB solution providers.” They are very happy with Acumatica’s robust platform helping GPC operate with data from single source of truth. Data is needed to make important decisions in near real time. They are also excited about the future since at this point they are only using ~ 35% of Acumatica’s capabilities.
