AcctTwo Builds Unique Trading Application on the Intacct Platform to Provide Growing Company with a Competitive Edge
Houston, TX and Fayetteville, AR – June 30th, 2015 - AcctTwo, a leading consulting firm and provider of cloud-based financial management solutions, announced that the firm has helped A&F Exports move to Intacct's best-in-class financial management software. A&F Exports is a poultry trading company that provides traders with a system through which orders can be placed and shipped. After a rigorous software evaluation, A&F chose Intacct as the best accounting system as well as the best platform on which to build their unique trading application.
Previous Business Challenges Faced by A&F Exports:
- A&F's legacy system forced the company to manage complex trades in manual spreadsheets and documents.
- The company found it difficult to manage all aspects of a trade, including a complete picture of trade costs.
- Providing traders with accurate commission calculations was labor intensive and required error-prone manual processes.
- The legacy system could not provide adequate reporting on trade information and did not support dimensional reporting based on products, offices, and trades.
Reasons for Selecting Intacct:
- A&F Exports and its traders needed a system where they could manage all aspects of their trade from a single location, and view all components of a trade summarized together on a clear dashboard.
- Building the new trading system entirely on the Intacct platform provides the accounting department with seamless access to trading information.
- Intacct’s superior reporting capabilities allows the company to run powerful reports and analytics on both financial and non-financial data.
Intacct Platform Allows Customization and Extensibility:
Thanks to AcctTwo's development expertise on the Intacct Platform, a development environment that allows customers and partners to extend Intacct by creating custom fields, objects, and applications, AcctTwo was able to build a complete custom trading application to meet A&F's specifications and business needs.
"The fact that the AcctTwo team was able to build a fully functioning trading application on the Intacct Platform - seamlessly integrating it with Intacct's core accounting system - highlights the power and extensibility of Intacct," said Marcus Wagner, Founder and CEO of AcctTwo. "Companies no longer have to settle for line-of-business applications that are not integrated with the accounting system, or operational systems that can't be tailored to meet very specific requirements to create competitive advantage."
“Real-time access to trade information and commissions is priceless to us, and we've been able to achieve that and more with Intacct."
- Angela Southerland, Vice President and Corporate Controller for A&F Exports, Inc.
