Intacct Extends Cloud Financials Leadership With New Version of Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM

Summer '09 Edition of Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM Delivers Significant Value to Businesses Connecting the Clouds With Intacct and Salesforce.com

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/01/09 -- Intacct today announced general availability for a new and improved version of Intacct MAX(TM) for Salesforce CRM, a streamlined "lead to cash" application built on the Force.com platform that seamlessly connects Intacct, the most popular financial management and accounting system on the salesforce.com AppExchange and Salesforce CRM, the industry-leading cloud computing CRM application. Intacct also celebrated the success of the rapidly growing number of companies that have "connected the clouds" with Intacct and salesforce.com. Finance executives from more than 50 such companies have posted reviews on the salesforce.com AppExchange describing the success they are enjoying with the combination of Salesforce CRM and Intacct.

Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM is a sophisticated composite application for lead to cash processing that spans both Salesforce CRM and Intacct financials. The Summer '09 edition of Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM includes major enhancements such as expanded bi-directional data synchronization, advanced price book management, automated contract renewals and extended payment processing. As a composite application, Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM goes far beyond simple data integration by creating new and unified business processes, an integrated user experience, aligned master data and shared business objects across both Salesforce CRM and Intacct.

Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM showcases how cloud computing can change the process of selecting and deploying business systems. With cloud-connected applications like Salesforce CRM and Intacct, companies can choose these best of breed systems knowing that they will not have to incur the cost or risk of maintaining integration between the applications themselves. In addition, with vendor-supported composite applications the end result will be far superior to that delivered by older data integration-based solutions.

"The combination of Salesforce CRM, Force.com and Intacct is compelling for companies that share our vision of improving productivity and fueling innovation by moving their business applications to the cloud," said Kendall Collins, Chief Marketing Officer at salesforce.com. "Connecting the clouds with Salesforce CRM and Intacct enables businesses to confidently deploy best in class CRM and Financials applications, avoiding the compromises associated with single-vendor ERP and CRM suites."

"With a large and fast growing community of businesses using both Intacct and Salesforce CRM, including more than 50 companies that have documented the success they are enjoying, Intacct is pulling away with by far the most popular financial applications on the salesforce.com AppExchange," said Daniel Druker, senior vice president of marketing and business development at Intacct. "We've worked very hard to develop, maintain and support superior integration between Salesforce CRM and Intacct, delighting our clients and further reducing the rationale for deploying single vendor ERP suites like those from Microsoft, NetSuite and SAP."

Businesses Celebrate Their Success with Intacct and Salesforce CRM

Ultimately, both Intacct and Salesforce CRM are all about delivering advances in productivity and effectiveness through cloud computing. Following is just a small sample of what innovative companies have to say about their experience with these integrated cloud applications:

    Brian Madigan, Controller, Bulk TV & Internet
    (www.bulktv.com)
    "Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM is a great value for any organization
    currently using Salesforce as their front end CRM. The integration is a
    seamless process and allows for a true front to back end system at a
    fraction of the cost of some more traditional options. By pulling
    customer information along with the quote detail needed to produce the
    purchase documents, sales orders and ultimately the invoices directly
    into Intacct, there is no chance for re-entry errors or revenue not
    being captured in a timely manner. The information that flows back to
    the front end is also very helpful to our sales team for quoting.
    Anyone in the organization can have the information they need about a
    client in real time."

    Kelley Miller, Director of Finance and Customer Operations, Ulthera
    (www.ulthera.com)
    "We switched from QuickBooks to Intacct earlier this year. As the
    primary user of Intacct, I use the lead to invoice integration daily
    and am very pleased with the results. It is wonderful to have the
    Intacct and Salesforce CRM applications talk to each other in such a
    simple, efficient way. I am very pleased with Intacct and would
    absolutely recommend it to my peers."

    Farah Siddiqui, Staff Accountant, BigMachines
    (www.bigmachines.com)
    "The integration between Salesforce CRM and Intacct has really helped
    our company with accurate reporting and providing greater visibility
    and communication between our various departments in the company. As
    the Staff Accountant handling all the AR functions, the quick and easy
    transfer of information from Salesforce CRM to Intacct and back really
    makes my job easier."

    Ian Duffield, COO, Decipher
    (www.decipherinc.com)
    "We have been using Intacct MAX for Salesforce CRM for two years and it
    is working extremely well for us.  Having an integrated lead-to-cash
    process has eliminated the time-consuming manual data-entry, lack of
    visibility and insufficient reporting capabilities of our previous
    accounting application. Intacct is continually updating their
    applications and we are looking forward to using the new enhancements."

    Patti Chavin, President, Stonestreet Marketing
    (www.stonestreetmarketing.com)
    "We had already decided to use Salesforce CRM for our Sales and
    Marketing efforts, as well as Project Management, so finding an
    accounting solution that fit well with Salesforce CRM was a
    prerequisite. Intacct's integration gives our sales staff instantaneous
    access to client orders, invoices and any issues like credits or
    cancellations -- supplying valuable information to them while in the
    field. I highly recommend Intacct and especially the integration with
    Salesforce CRM."
