The Intacct name was derived from “internet” and “accounting.” Intacct helped pioneer software-as-a-service or cloud computing, and its products were some of the first to use a multi-tenant approach, which defines a unique approach to software architecture that significantly lowers the cost of delivering and using products.
Intacct offers two main products:
- Intacct - Intacct is a cloud financial management and accounting system specifically designed for use by small and mid-sized companies.
- Intacct Accountant Edition - Intacct Accountant Edition delivers web based accounting and financial applications that are designed for use by accounting firms and business process outsourcers.
The Intacct system includes applications for accounting, contract management, revenue recognition, inventory, purchasing, vendor management, financial consolidation, and financial reporting.
Writing in PC Magazine, reviewer Kathy Yagal described Intacct's web-based products as being designed for "small to midsize companies (defined as 5 to 1,000 employees) that have outgrown entry-level products like QuickBooks but want a relatively inexpensive alternative to traditional client/server software". The cost is based on how many of the Intacct applications are used and is charged on an annual or quarterly basis.
Intacct has garnered widespread industry acclaim, including these recent awards:
- 2011 - Top 20 Cloud Software & Apps Vendors

In 2009, Intacct formed an alliance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). This was the first time in the AICPA's history that it recognized a single technology vendor as a preferred provider. The AICPA and its subsidiary CPA2Biz aligned with Intacct, naming the company as their preferred provider of financial applications to CPA professionals and AICPA members. The stated goal of the partnership is to help CPA firms and small and midsized businesses adopt cloud computing to improve their financial performance, take better advantage of financial advice and make better and faster business decisions.
According to Barry Melancon, president and CEO, AICPA: “In today's economic climate, small and mid-sized businesses need to actively manage their financial performance by becoming continuously aware of their financial position and collaborate with trusted CPA advisors to make the best possible business decisions. Our vision for this new alliance is to improve productivity, increase transparency and reduce costs for both AICPA member firms and the millions of small and mid-sized businesses they serve.”
Intacct has raised more than $135M in venture capital backing, with the most recent funding coming in a $45 million round that combined venture funding and a debt package in February 2014. The majority of the new financing was secured through a $30 million venture funding round led by Battery Ventures, a new Intacct investor, and featured all existing active investors, including Bessemer Venture Partners, Costanoa Venture Capital, Emergence Capital, Sigma Partners, and Split Rock Partners, as well as new investor Morgan Creek Capital Management. The company stated it would use this new infusion of capital to "further invest in company growth and expanded product capabilities."
