7. How long does it take to implement Sage Intacct?
As with the cost question above, this answer will be very subjective.

There’s currently no dedicated Payroll module within Sage Intacct. However, you can easily import journals or create a journal template, which you can then add the numbers into before you post each month.
9. What does “born in the cloud” mean?
If a software’s described as “born in the cloud”, that means it was designed specifically for use in the cloud, rather being changed to work within it. Sage Intacct is an example of “born in the cloud” software. Because of this, each upgrade you need will be applied automatically at no extra cost to you.
10. Does Sage Intacct have an API?
Yes – It has an open API, meaning you can easily integrate it with other systems your business already has. It also has Salesforce integration out of the box, meaning your finance and sales functions can work closer together.
