Intacct provides APIs that offers flexibility for Intacct integration with other systems.
As your business grows, your financial system will need to “talk” to other business systems easily. This two-way communication will help your business save time, reduce errors and streamline operations.
Here are a couple of sample cases that come to mind:
- The Accounts Payable module of your ERP solution needs to be updated with sales tax rates at least once a month. These updates come to you from a tax rate provider in the form of an Excel or CSV file.
- The sales team wants to have full visibility of their customers’ information via their Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system. This includes credit limits, credit terms, invoice aging information, etc. All this information resides in the financial module of your ERP.
- The accounting department requires the payroll payment information of each payment cycle so they can write the corresponding journal entry into the general ledger. These numbers live in a third-party payroll services system like ADP.
Implementing an automated exchange of information between systems can either be very easy--or very expensive and complicated. It depends on how prepared these systems are for integration.
System integration made simple
Fortunately, there are solutions that make it easy to integrate with them. This integration usually comes in the form of a pre-built piece of code—also known as an application programming interface (API)—that acts as that seamless bridge.
In our tax rates example, an integration-friendly system will provide an API to automate tax updates. This API receives the new tax rates and updates the tax tables accurately, behind the scenes.
With pre-built integrations, even the most non-technical person can easily set up and configure your connection.
Intacct integration with “clicks, not code”
Ease of integration with other best-in-class systems is one of Intacct's key differentiators. Embedded in the software, Intacct provides well-documented APIs that give you the flexibility to connect it with other systems you have now, or plan to add in the future.
In fact, there are hundreds of integrations pre-built by Intacct and its partners already available in the Intacct Marketplace - so you may not even need to create your own.
