A new update to the Intacct product backbone will provide enterprise level collaboration to businesses of all sizes—within your financial application. Intacct Collaborate builds upon Intacct’s relationship with Salesforce, using Salesforce.com Chatter social network to help organizations ease the communication between organizations—finance, IT, sales, purchasing, etc.—by offering in-application views and communication. Why is this a big deal?
Intacct Collaborate embeds Salesforce Chatter to create a secure social layer across all finance processes and across devices through the Salesforce1 Mobile App—removing the need for long strings of email surrounding financial decisions.
Kill Email Overload
Using email for collaboration introduces unnecessary friction within an organization by making employees swap back and forth between applications and by increasing the risk that important process issues are neglected due to email overload.
However, with this new addition to Intacct, employees can conduct conversations right inside Intacct’s cloud financial management application, directly on specific records such as journal entries, accounts, projects, invoices, purchase requisitions, and more.
This addition will facilitate greater collaboration, expedite the decision making process, and ultimately provide increased agility– making companies more competitive.
