The #1 Subscription Billing & Financial Software for SaaS Companies
Whether they’re selling traditional on-premises software or software as a service (SaaS), software businesses are most likely to succeed—and grow—when management is metrics-driven and has clear visibility into key performance indicators (KPIs).
With greater visibility and metrics analysis capabilities, companies can make better decisions about efficient, productive resource investments, resulting in strong revenue growth and high valuations.
Many small and medium SaaS businesses rely on legacy software for accounting and financial management, but growth and increased competition have proven the need for upgraded systems.
Many SaaS businesses have migrated to the cloud with Sage Intacct™ because Intacct is a simple, fast, and scalable cloud-based solution designed specifically for the SaaS industry.

Take the Next Step
Software companies are shifting their customer relationships from traditional perpetual licenses and on-premises software to longer-term subscription-based models. The benefits are proven to attract more customers, create more revenue predictability, and achieve higher customer lifetime value.
Traditional ERP systems with legacy order-based financial models can’t support the subscription-based model. To get the most benefits from subscriptions, the financial management system needs a single subscription system of record, from quoting to reporting GAAP and SaaS metrics to forecasting revenue, billing, cash, and expenses.
