Sage Intacct is a cloud-based, financial management software system. It’s GAAP-compliant, and features multi-entity financial reporting, many integrations, and industry-specific services. Sage Intacct is often the go-to choice in the professional services, nonprofit, retail, and healthcare industries.
We found Sage Intacct’s scalable multi-entity support, project accounting, and multi-dimensional reporting particularly beneficial. The simple user interface and integrations with Salesforce, Versapay, etc., enhance its functionality. However, it’s worth noting that some features like budgeting and interactive reporting come at an extra cost. Furthermore, a mobile app is noticeably missing, and non-US businesses may find it less suitable.
Rootstock Cloud ERP is a manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain software built on the Salesforce Cloud Platform. It integrates CRM and accounting with sales order management, inventory control, purchase order tracking, and standard cost accounting. This software is tailored for the manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain industries, specifically sectors like aerospace and high-tech electronics.
We appreciated Rootstock’s versatility, low-code, business-driven approach, and the ease with which users can tailor the system to meet their unique needs. However, we found that Rootstock might not be as strong as Sage Intacct in terms of external financial reporting capabilities. Importing excel files for reporting can be troublesome, and the process lengths may require more steps and clicks than some users would prefer.
While both Sage Intacct and Rootstock Cloud ERP have their advantages, we recommend Sage Intacct for most businesses. Its multi-dimensional reporting capabilities, project accounting features, and scalability for multi-entity support make it especially valuable. Although it may cost extra for certain features, its overall comprehensive services make it a good investment.
However, businesses in manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain sectors that require a system with a strong emphasis on inventory and manufacturing might find Rootstock Cloud ERP more suited to their needs.
