Intacct offered significantly greater flexibility to support the specific
needs of our organization, including our complex fund reporting requirements."

"With Intacct's fast, streamlined invoice to payment process, we've greatly
improved the University's key vendor relationships and are making life easier
for our internal purchasers. On average, it now takes us just ten days to
process and pay bills, verses the 21 days that was typical with Sage. Thanks
to Intacct, I'm confident we can continue to scale our operations without
having to add more people to our team."

"Our fund visibility has been drastically improved because of Intacct's
mutli-entity, multi-dimensional architecture. With the many dimensions
available within Intacct, we are able to easily keep track of each fund's
separate cash or accounts payable balance, or roll up all of our funds to look
at the Foundation's overall portfolio."
