I have used many accounting softwares and Sage Intacct is by far the easiest system to use and train on.”

“In addition to the tremendous value of Sage Intacct’s dashboards and dimensions, it’s a great advantage to bring statistical information into the system so easily. We monitor daily attendance from our members and the general public, and love that we can now marry the zoo’s financial information with these numbers. As a result, we can react quickly versus waiting until month-end to see if attendance makeup, food sales per capita, or other trends are out of their normal range.”

“The financial suite is well organized and easy to use, adoption by new users has been fast. There are many tools to aid both productivity and the accuracy of information such as bank integration, prepaid amortization schedules as well as setting up recurring or memorized transactions. The implementation went very smoothly.”
