Matthews, Carter & Boyce (MCB), a leading accounting firm in Washington DC, has become an authorized SIAP partner of Sage Intacct, the preferred financial management application of AICPA. What prompted this move? MCB has a growing number of clients and prospects were looking for advice and services around cloud-based financial solutions.
MCB is already a QuickBooks partner. It is a logical progression as their clients grow to want to team up with one of the leading financial management solutions on the market. As a partner, MCB will now sell, implement and support Sage Intacct. The press release also indicated that the firm would develop enhancements to the application for clients. However, it did not go into further detail about what that meant.
Kathleen Flaherty, MCB Marketing & Practice Development Partner, commented: “We selected Sage Intacct for its best-in-class functionality, and because it is the AICPA preferred provider of financial applications. After considering our options, we felt it was the best fit for our niche industries, and we look forward to the benefits it will bring to our firm, our team and, most importantly, to our clients.”
MCB will not only provide services to clients to implement and support Sage Intacct; it also leverages the solution to provide its Accountancy outsourcing practice. Alongside Intuit QuickBooks, it can provide financial outsourcing to companies from small to a significant size.
Founded in 1947, MCB has provided accountancy services for more than 70 years to a mix of industries. These include investment companies, non-profit and real estate, all sectors that Sage Intacct has customers in.
Taylor Macdonald, SVP of Channel Sales at Sage Intacct, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Matthews, Carter & Boyce to our program. Our solutions are well suited to the industry niches MCB serves, and we look forward to working together to ensure MCB clients benefit fully from the leading business-building solutions we will deliver.”
Enterprise Times: What does this mean
Yet another firm of CPAs joins the Sage Intacct ecosystem. There is growing automation for the small business sector. QuickBooks automates many of the tasks that accountants might have done before. There is, therefore, room for growth. The expertise gained enables accountants to spend more time offering business advice than just crunching numbers.
As clients grow, it is natural for them to seek solutions more suited to larger, more complex organizations. Sage Intacct is one such solution, and both Sage Intacct and MCB are likely to benefit from this partnership.
