Sage 500 vs Intacct Migration Center

Is your business struggling with limitations of Sage 500? You may be wondering how long Sage will continue to support your ERP solution and whether it's time to consider migrating to a more modern Sage Product. 

Pull-Quote-Do-it

As one of the biggest Sage 500 support providers in North America, we have a lot of customers that have been asking us the same questions. This Sage Intacct Migration Center will help you find answers these questions and provide the resources you need to decide whether making the move from Sage 500 to Sage Intacct is right for your business.

SAGE 500 VS. SAGE INTACCT

The first question that clients who are considering a migration from Sage 500 to Sage Intacct typically ask is how the software that they're familiar with compares with the new Sage Intacct financial software solution. 

Sage Intacct is a best in class software designed for service and knowledge-based industries.  Specific advantages of Sage Intacct include:

  • Deeper insight with multi-dimensional dashboards and reports
  • Automated multi-entity management
  • Advanced financial management features
  • Pre-configured integrations with other best-in-class applications 
  • Web-based access from any device

While all of these features would add benefit to any company, Sage Intacct may not be the best fit for everyone. Organizations with global supply chain or process manufacturing requirements should consider migrating to a solution like Sage X3 to meet their unique needs.
