Posted by Denise Torres on Wed, Feb 06, 2013

DALLAS- BTerrell Group, a premier ERP and accounting consulting firm based in Dallas, today announced a partnership with Intacct, a leading provider of cloud-based financial management and accounting software. BTerrell Group, a long-time Sage partner with a substantial client base in Texas and the Southwest, selected Intacct as a cloud-based financial solution after a comprehensive review of the competing solutions. As an Intacct Business Partner, BTerrell Group will sell, implement, support, and develop enhancements for Intacct’s award-winning cloud financial applications.  

“It thrills me to offer Intacct, a best-of-breed-on-demand ERP product, to our prospects as another option,” said Brian Terrell, Managing Partner of BTerrell Group. “Intacct’s cloud-based system offers our clients flexibility, access, and lower technical infrastructure requirements than on-premise accounting platforms.  All the while, we remain strongly committed to our client base and prospects who prefer on-premise solutions.”

Intacct is the only vendor to be named a preferred provider of financial management and accounting software by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the trade association of the accounting industry. Intacct delivers a professional-strength financial infrastructure built to offer real-time reporting and business analytics, powerful automation and integration, superior compliance and auditability, plus unlimited flexibility and scale to evolve as a business grows. By tapping into the power of cloud computing, Intacct offers greater speed, increased cost-effectiveness, and superior manageability. 

“One of the areas that really attracted us to Intacct is the robust cloud-based development tools that allow us to customize and extend Intacct to deliver comprehensive solutions for our clients,” added Brian Terrell. “We are very excited about the opportunity to create unique extensions and vertical industry solutions built on the Intacct platform that deliver increased value to our customers and expand the scope of our business.”

“The Intacct Business Partner Program continues to attract top Sage partners looking to expand their portfolio with a cloud-based system,” said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels for Intacct. “More and more businesses are moving their financial applications to the cloud to take advantage of the significant cost savings, improved speed of innovation, and superior return on investment. BTerrell Group is a great addition to our partner program and I look forward to working closely with them for many years to come.”

Hybrid Cloud Computing for Accounting

Posted by Meredith Gooch on Thu, Jul 16, 2009

The debate over business use of outsourced cloud computing versus on-premise computing has been rising to a higher decibel level. The main advantages of adopting cloud-based software are:

1. Minimal start-up costs in exchange for monthly or annual fees
2. Reduced infrastructure management
3. Web-based deliverability that provides access “anywhere”

On the flip side, the main arguments against cloud computing are the inability of firms to manage system risk and the potential loss of security for proprietary business data. A higher total cost of ownership over longer periods as well as concerns about the difficulty of migrating away from Software as a Service (SaaS) applications present additional roadblocks that prevent accounting from moving to the cloud.

Recently, SaaS options that extend functionality of on-premise accounting systems are beginning to appear. Such hybrid solutions combine the use of both on-premise and cloud-based software. For instance, Indicee, a Web-based application that interacts with reports from on-premise Sage Accpac ERP and other software, provides basic sales analysis and other business intelligence. So far, hybrid solutions do not completely eliminate concerns about data security, but any additional risk extends only to the outsourced applications. Undoubtedly, new software services provided via the cloud will continue to emerge.
