How to Select Accounting Software for Your Project Based Business: A Step-by-Step eBook

Romy Andrews - Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Professional Services Best Practices

So, you’ve decided that you need new accounting software for your project based business (consulting, marketing, SaaS or so forth). From here, you have two options: The first option, which is chosen far too often, is to decide based on simple, arbitrary factors. This might include picking whichever vendor seems the friendliest, using whatever your competitors are using, or choosing based on preferences of friends. This willy-nilly decision-making style is fast and easy, but it doesn’t ensure that the software functionality matches the needs of your business. It’s basically gambling – it might work out, or it might be a total waste of money that results in your business going back to the same outdated spreadsheets everyone used with the old system.

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:
