AcctTwo sponsors Sage Intacct's Advantage user conference in Las Vegas and sends nine speakers to share product and strategy expertise across multiple industries
Houston, TX and Milford, CT - AcctTwo, one of the nation’s leading providers of Sage Intacct’s cloud accounting software and of Managed Accounting Services announced that the firm will send nine speakers to Sage Intacct's 2019 Advantage user conference in Las Vegas October 21-25. Advantage is the premier annual conference for Sage Intacct customers and partners to expand their knowledge and use of the product, learn about the product's newest features and future roadmap, and to meet and network with other finance leaders taking advantage of this incredibly powerful financial management platform.
AcctTwo delivers the future of finance and accounting to its customers with three lines of business - cloud accounting software, managed accounting services, and Sage Intacct consulting and software development - across multiple industries, including churches and nonprofits, software and SaaS, and oil and gas. All of these business lines and industries will be represented by AcctTwo's speakers at this year's conference. Below are summaries of the topics AcctTwo's experts will cover in Las Vegas.
Marcus Wagner, AcctTwo's Founder & CEO, will give a presentation titled Measuring Success - A New Meaning. His talk will parallel recent changes announced by the influential Business Roundtable on the purpose of a corporation. Nonprofits have long attempted to measure the true outcomes of their efforts, but now we're starting to see for-profit companies issuing mission statements and struggling to measure the success of those stated missions. Marcus will walk us through some of what he's learned running his own business and show us why Sage Intacct, with its dimensionality and the ability to incorporate operational data alongside financials, is the perfect platform on which to undertake these efforts.
Sage Intacct +
AcctTwo's "Sage Intacct +" line of services include consulting, reporting & analytics, as well as technical services and development on the Sage Intacct platform. Brett Michalson, AcctTwo's CTO, will present on the technical services and development piece of this offering. Sage Intacct is an incredible financial application engine that provides a powerful general ledger backbone for just about any organization or industry, but each organization is unique, and every industry has its special requirements. Thankfully, with the development platform provided by Sage Intacct and AcctTwo's Sage Intacct + services, any organization's system can be enhanced to meet their needs, providing that "last mile" of functionality.
AcctTwo has long served the SaaS industry and Sage Intacct is the perfect financial management system for the needs of those companies. The breadth of AcctTwo's experience is evident in the four SaaS-related presentations that AcctTwo's professional services team will participate in.
Chris Price, Director of Professional Services, will take part in two ASC 606 compliance-related presentations - a panel of customers and industry experts as well as a presentation on data migration best practices when moving to the Sage Intacct Contracts module. Sarah Pond, Lead Solution Architect at AcctTwo, will give a presentation on how to build and manage contracts and subscription billing modules. And Lincoln Donaldson, Professional Services Manager, will address the services component of many SaaS companies, as well as other project-based businesses, and how to implement and customize Sage Intacct's Project Accounting module.
Faith-Based and Nonprofit
With new nonprofit reporting disclosures in place, churches and non-profit organizations have an opportunity to create disclosures that better tell their story to their boards, bankers, grantors, donors, and other stakeholders. AcctTwo's Director of Finance, Allison Webb, and Professional Services Manager, Sandy McClure, will provide information about liquidity vs. availability, whether to restrict or not restrict funds, and other ways to add meaningful disclosures to your financial statements. They will also explore how Sage Intacct helps organizations prepare these disclosures and monitor them throughout the year. Additionally, Glen Strack, the leader of AcctTwo's Sage Intacct + Reporting & Analytics practice, will take a deep-dive into Sage Intacct's powerful reporting options and how they can increase visibility for nonprofits and faith-based organizations.
Managed Accounting Services
Finally, Kate Johnson, AcctTwo's Director of Marketing who leads the firm's Managed Accounting Services business line from a marketing perspective, will present to other partners in the Sage Intacct Accountants Program (SIAP) channel on how to build an effective marketing plan and what to prioritize when marketing outsourced accounting. AcctTwo is investing heavily in these services and the firm sees outsourced accounting via a shared services model as the true future of finance and accounting.
