Intacct vs. Sage

Can a large conglomerate really innovate…
Or will ALL the products suffer under the weight of so many?

Intacct vs Sage Zombies

Sage... The Accounting Dead??

Okay, so MAYBE the zombie is too much, but I think you get the point.

Sage products, in general, use old technology with proprietary databases and coding technologies. Sure, they were fantastic products when they were released – and for a time there after. But, times change and so do technologies.

Not only is Sage, like Microsoft, slow to the cloud, but they have a track record of being slow. Slow to Windows. Slow to Microsoft SQL. Sage has a reputation for being the trudging, slow-moving accounting software company that just does not innovate.

Couple that with all the products that Sage has purchased over the years – Peachtree, Simply Accounting, Accpac, X3, the MAS line of products, Masterbuilder, Abra, MIP – you can see how their stable gets crowded. And, you can see that at least some of the products will not innovate and eventually – if not quickly – turn into ZOMBIES!!

Avoid The Accounting Dead with Intacct!

Sage products are typically premise-based products created in the late 1990s. While they have a good foundation in accounting and are often a fit for distribution companies, most implementations will require multiple, costly add-ons from third parties. Many of the features provided by these add-ons are already built into and supported by Intacct, such as consolidations and multi-currency. Even basic features like reporting require a separate product to get good results, and Sage does not offer the easy dimensional reporting capabilities that you can get with Intacct.

While it is possible to have a hosted Sage installation, Sage remains primarily a premise-based solution, which means that in addition to the software and licensing fees, it requires costly servers and IT resources to maintain the system and provide the acceptable level of availability, backups, and security that you want. Sage has a web-based “portal version”, but it still requires an on-premise version and the dashboard capabilities are extremely limited because it was not truly built for the cloud like Intacct.
