Sage Intacct was one of the first cloud accounting applications, launching in 1999. Whereas competing products aimed to replicate the full ERP suite, Intacct chose to specialise in accounting and financial reporting. It has deeper revenue recognition features out of the box for activities such as grant acquittals which typically need to be custom built in other ERPs.

Sage Intacct typically partners with other enterprise applications such as Salesforce to match the breadth of functionality required by larger businesses. 

Sage acquired Intacct in 2017 and is promoting the platform heavily in Europe, the Asia Pacific and North America.
