Head Start with SuiteSuccess

Intacct relies on the standard SaaS approach to building software. NetSuite delivers industry-specific best practices that minimize risks and accelerate ROI.

NetSuite Reporting

Native Reporting & Business Intelligence

Queries are highly customizable, and users can even perform a JOIN to all records that are tied to that record within NetSuite’s relational schema.

NetSuite Multi-Subsidiary

NetSuite is built for Multi-Subsidiary Companies

NetSuite provides real-time visibility into consolidated financials across all subsidiaries. In Intacct, some features like generating project invoices, utilizing recurring transactions, and credit card transactions may still need manual intervention at the entity level.

NetSuite Search

Easy to Search

A global search capability like Google allows for quick and easy access to anything in the database (this ability is a result of NetSuite’s unified database).
