Sage Intacct General Ledger Accounting Software Overview

The revolutionary Sage Intacct general ledger design enables you to use dimension values—instead of old-fashioned account segments—to capture the business context of your transactions, operational measures, and budgets. It’s how you can easily track performance by customer, project, fund, or any other business driver, while simultaneously simplifying your chart of accounts

Close your sub-ledgers all at once or independently, in stages, for a more efficient period end. You can continue to operate “business as usual” during the close period by closing one ledger while others are still processing transactions.

Key features of the Sage Intacct GL

Multi-ledger architecture: Manage the close process with sub-ledgers you can close independently.Real-time posting: Get up-to-date visibility with transactions that post in real-time to both the sub-ledgers and general ledger.

Streamlined chart of accounts: Use general ledger dimensions to reduce the number of accounts you manage while retaining visibility as your business changes.

Multi-entity architecture: Grow into any business structure with a general ledger that provides both visibility and flexibility for managing domestic and global entities.

Transaction definitions: Visually configure business process document workflows to control how transactions post to the accounts you specify.

Pre-built dimensions: Capture and store the business context for every transaction, budget, and measure in the general ledger with prebuilt dimensions for project, customer, location, department, vendor, item, employee, and class.

User-defined dimensions: Capture and store additional business context for each transaction, budget, and measure with user-defined dimensions.
Required dimension values: Ensure data quality by making dimension values mandatory for transactions that post to specified accounts.
Auto-populated dimension values: Simplify data entry and improve accuracy by auto-populating values for specified dimensions based on values of other dimensions.
Multiple pre-defined books: Set up Sage Intacct General Ledger as cash, accrual, or both; every transaction automatically posts to the correct book enabling, for instance, accrual-based firms to more clearly see the impact of cash transactions.
User-defined books: Create additional books that support reporting by different standards—from IFRS and local GAAP to industry-specific ones.

Side-by-side multi-book reporting: Create reports that span books to show comparative performance by different bases.
