by | Aug 11, 2016

G2 Crowd Leader 2016When considering changes in your business operation, isn’t input from your peers a great support? Do you solicit the opinions of your friends, your mentors, associates you’ve met at conferences? Would you trust the opinions of hundreds of peers in your field when looking into a new financial management system? Then you would be pleased to know the independent G2 Crowd again has rated Intacct as the top accounting/financial management software in its most recent survey.

G2 Crowd is the world’s leading business software review platform, providing nearly 100,000 product reviews that educate some 600,000 potential buyers who read the reviews each month. G2 Crowd also intuitively packages insights from expert peers, everyday users, and aggregate data to score competitive products on The Grid.

It’s on The Grid where Intacct really shines, scoring 97 points in customer satisfaction, making it the highest ranked accounting software and the only mid-market accounting program ranked as a Leader. Intacct far outpaces other mid-market packages, including FinancialForce (65), Sage 100 ERP (48), NetSuite (45), and Microsoft Dynamics GP (14).

What Your Peers Are Saying

G2 Crowd also provides complete access to survey results on its website. It also highlights what it considers the most helpful reviews, both positive and critical. For example to the question “What do you like?”:

Amy C., an executive sponsor on Internet, says of Intacct: “Dashboards and configurability – dimensions are great to expand reporting capabilities. I liked the controls and close functionality. Upgrades were as easy as can be – We integrated with our operating system which went relatively easy compared to other systems I have implemented.”And Lisa E, an administrator in information technology and services, says of NetSuite: “Was pleasantly surprised at how feature rich the application is. NetSuite was very easy to learn to use. Coming from an on-site batched based solution, the learning curve was effortless.”

In what G2 Crowd calls Most Helpful Critical Review, answering the question “What do you dislike?”:

Anonymous user in religious institutions, says of Intacct: “Reporting abilities are extremely limited and must be tweaked for each new report I want to see–a time-consuming task! I can’t edit certain transactions after posting and must be reversed then re-posted even if the change is to the description (fund transfers, voided checks, etc.).”

Antonio S, an administrator in information technology and services, says of NetSuite: “The NetSuite implementation was one of the worst implementations driven I have experienced in my 20 years of IT experience. If you have already signed for NetSuite or you are about to have your implementation started to make sure you have NetSuite Consultants on site. Otherwise, you will be wasting hundreds of hours on the phone making no progress.”
