How Intacct Stacks Up Against 5 Cloud-based Competitors

How-Intacct-Stacks-Up-Against-5-Cloud-based-Competitors

If you've ever spent more than a few minutes looking at reviews of restaurants, you know that a simple numerical rating system doesn't give a potential customer all the information they need. A Thai restaurant in your area might have 5-star reviews, but you could end up choosing to eat at a 4-star burger joint instead. There are lots of factors to making a dining decision, including location, price, type of food, ambience, speed of service, and preferences of friends. Plus, once you've thought everything over, you might still end up making your restaurant choice based on a whim rather than objective characteristics.

Of course, comparing different accounting software is much more complicated than picking whichever restaurant has the highest reviews. A software buyer needs to consider what type of solution would work best for their company, including major factors such as whether to use a cloud-based or an on-premises model, whether vertical market software or horizontal market software would better suit the company's needs, and the current size of the business as well as any planned future growth. With all of this in mind, this article focuses on describing the differences and similarities between Intacct and five other cloud-based competitors, all of which are horizontal market focused and intended for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Alright, here's an apples and bananas comparison of Intacct and five other popular cloud-based accounting solutions, followed by in-depth descriptions of each:
