Intacct Partner Program Sees Continued Growth
Promotion Dates:
Intacct, the innovation and customer satisfaction leader in cloud ERP software, announced the addition of several new business partners to its channel program. Intacct now has 100 value-added resellers (VARs) in the program, including several recent additions that appear on one or more of the industry’s Top Firms lists: BrainSell, e2b teknologies, Stambaugh Ness, and The TM Group. In addition, Cohn Reznick, a Top 10 accounting firm, has also joined the Intacct Partner Program as a VAR. Over the past six years, Intacct has steadily grown its channel program into the envy of the industry. CRN has consistently awarded the Intacct Partner Program a 5-Star Rating and no other cloud ERP vendor has more partners that appear on the annual Top 100 VARs lists. With the new additions, Intacct now boasts 29 partners on the most recent Accounting Today VAR 100 list, 27 partners on Bob Scott’s Top 100 VARs list, and 26 partners on Bob Scott’s VAR Stars list. As an increasing number of companies look to move their financial applications to the cloud, Intacct has been the go-to choice for traditional Microsoft and Sage partners looking to add a modern, cloud ERP solution to their portfolio to meet this growing demand. In fact, Intacct has added 40 new partners to its program since January 1, 2016. “As we pass the sixth anniversary of the launch of the Intacct Partner Program, we have never seen higher levels of interest from the partner community to work with Intacct,” said Taylor Macdonald, SVP of Channel Sales at Intacct. “Even with our rapid growth, Intacct remains very selective in which firms it adds to the program – taking in only about 1 out of every 6 that apply.” “I’ve been on the other side of things and understand what it takes to build a successful technology consulting firm,” continued Macdonald. “We’ve built our program in a way that gives partners every opportunity to succeed. Unlike other vendors, who typically take any firm willing to sign up – including taking dozens of firms targeting the same geographic area – we are very selective in the firms we work with to ensure our partners can be successful. We want firms that are committed to the cloud, ones that can deliver the high levels of satisfaction our customers expect, and ones that fit the vertical and geographic needs of our target customers.” Intacct’s channel partners have played a critical role in the growth of the company. Last quarter, for example, Intacct grew new customer bookings by more than 45% over the same period a year earlier. Nearly half of those new customers came in through channel partners.

This new Chromebook was designed with enhanced durability features, including a spill-resistant keyboard and compliance with several key U.S. Military Standard (MIL-STD 810G) specifications. Powered by an Intel® Celeron® processor, the new Chromebook provides up to 10 hours of battery life in a portable design that is ideal for labs, carts and 1:1 programs.(3) Plus, its fan-less design makes it an exceptional choice for schools and school districts that want a reliable, powerful and quiet device for student learning. “Chrome-based devices have secured the top spot for the last three years in U.S. schools for good reason – they are incredibly easy to use, keep students safe and provide all the capabilities needed for learning,” said Richard Black, vice president, marketing communications, Acer America. “In addition, students’ data is stored in the cloud, so it is secure and accessible no matter what happens to any one device. The Acer Chromebook Seed Program is a great way for any school not yet using Chrome to try an Acer Chromebook for free.” To participate in the Acer Chromebook Seed Program, K-12 schools can request a conference call with their Acer account manager to confirm program details and discuss their school’s specific needs. The K-12 customer will then receive a C731T-C42N Chromebook. There is no fee or obligation to purchase to participate in the program. Thirty days after delivery of the system, customers will have a second conference call with Acer to discuss their impressions of the Chromebook. There is no obligation to purchase the seeded product or any other Acer product at that time; customers may explore further options with Acer or return the system. Interested schools should talk to their Acer account manager to set up a preliminary teleconference. Applications will be accepted beginning today and will be offered while quantities are available.
