How Can I Get Sage Intacct?

There are a couple of ways to get started with Sage Intacct for your business. The one that’s right for you depends on the needs of your business and how you plan to use the software. You could:

  • Purchase the software directly from a Sage Intacct partner or a Value Added Reseller (VAR), who would cater to the specific needs of your industry. This is a great option if you have a full team of accountants and need to upgrade your backend financials to support the growth of your business, or if your team is looking for a multi-purpose accounting tool. VARs partner with Sage Intacct and often offer additional advisory or implementation services.
  • Work with an outsourcing partner who understands the challenges and pain points of your industry, and serves as your accounting partner to manage your financials within Sage Intacct. With this option, you don’t have to purchase the software, and you’ll get support and guidance from a team of experienced, financial professionals.

Beene Garter, A Doeren Mayhew Firm supports both of these options, serving as both a VAR and a member of Sage Intacct’s accountants program.
