Intacct Announces IBM WebSphere Business Integration-Based Adapter for Adding Third-Party Applications to ERP On Demand

Customers and Growing Network of Application Partners Benefit From Plug-and-Play Integration

LOS GATOS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 28, 2005 -- Intacct Corporation, the leading provider of on-demand ERP, today announced close collaboration with IBM to develop a new integration service to connect applications using IBM WebSphere Business Integration infrastructure to Intacct's ERP On Demand suite. The WebSphere-based software adapter, which both IBM and Intacct will promote, automates real-time workflows between Intacct's Web-based ERP suite and standalone systems, such as e-commerce, manufacturing and workforce optimization.

This powerful integration service benefits from IBM industry leading strength in helping customers use WebSphere software as the foundation of service-oriented architecture, a standard-based approach to transform to On Demand businesses that integrate data across the enterprise, and externally with customers, partners and suppliers as well as link business and IT to drive down cost and create new opportunities for growth.

Intacct delivers financial, supply chain, professional services automation and business analytics software as a service to midsize and large corporations for a monthly subscription fee. Dozens of software companies partner with Intacct to enhance ERP On Demand with best-of-breed functionalities, such as PLM, CRM, HR and payroll. The WebSphere-based software adapter lets users quickly, easily and securely create integrated processes that exchange information between both Web-native and premise-based enterprise software.

Intacct recently launched revolutionary customization and integration services to elevate its ERP suite to a strategic platform for customers to build end-to-end business applications. With CustomERP and ConnectERP, companies no longer require programming resources for the ERP system to "talk" to external legacy and Web-based applications. The software adapter, available in the fourth quarter of 2005, will be a component of Intacct's ConnectERP integration service.

"IBM is focused on enabling our customers to become On Demand businesses -- able to integrate business processes and quickly react to market opportunities," said Buell Duncan, general manager, ISV and Developer Relations, IBM. "The power and flexibility of WebSphere Business Integration combined with Intacct's comprehensive ERP functionality provide customers with the flexible IT infrastructure required to transform themselves into On Demand businesses."

"Customers are frustrated with the limitations of one-size-fit-all solutions, which require industry-specific business processes to be tailored around generic software systems," said Robert J. Jurkowski, CEO and president of Intacct. "Working closely with IBM, Intacct enables the Federated Ecosystem, where companies can bundle the enterprise applications they need to run successful businesses. Bridging the gap between our Web-native applications and traditional software expands Intacct's partner network into larger markets."
