The Origin Of Sage Intacct

“Intacct was founded in 1999 to provide small and midsize organizations with online financial applications. It was one of the first vendors to develop multitenant SaaS business applications.” – Gartner

With its beginning in San Jose 1999, this software was created from ground zero, by David C. Thomas & Odysseas Tsatalos, as a cloud-based software. They were in the cloud before most people knew what it was! The name Intacct comes from a hybrid of the words INTernet and ACCounTing. Mounting up numerous awards for their innovative software, the company quickly grew in size and awareness. It was 2017 when the company was hitting its stride on all cylinders and a team of 500 people that the larger company, Sage, came into the fold and bought up this relatively small but highly important business.

Alright, we know where Sage Intacct came from, what can it do for my business?
