AccessTek Becomes Latest Microsoft VAR to Move to Cloud Computing With Intacct

Firm Sees Growing Customer Demand for Cloud Computing-Based Applications

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting applications, today announced that AccessTek, a leading Chicago-area value-added reseller (VAR), has joined the Intacct Business Partner Program. AccessTek, one of the top Microsoft VARs for more than two decades, is aligning with Intacct in response to increased demand for cloud computing-based applications from its prospects and clients. Intacct is the only cloud financial applications vendor with which AccessTek has partnered.

Founded in 1989, AccessTek specializes in the migration of clients' accounting systems from QuickBooks, Peachtree and other entry-level software products to more advanced financial and business management solutions using its trademarked BusinessSimple™ methodology. The company provides systems analysis, implementation services, training and support to organizations ranging from start-ups to Fortune 100 firms across a wide variety of industries nationwide. With more than 500 successful implementations to their credit, AccessTek belongs to an elite group of Microsoft Gold-Certified partners -- the top level of Microsoft solutions partners. Under the leadership of Lindy Antonelli, CITP.CPA, AccessTek has earned numerous accolades, including Great Plains Partner of the Year.

The high success rate of AccessTek implementations is a result of delivering world-class financial applications quickly, while keeping implementation costs down. Intacct's cloud computing-based applications satisfy both requirements, making AccessTek's decision to partner with Intacct a natural extension of its Microsoft portfolio. AccessTek clients and prospects have also expressed significant interest in moving their financial applications to the cloud to gain more modern financial systems.

"We are excited to partner with Intacct, which has the leading cloud financial applications and a very partner-friendly culture," said Antonelli, founder and CEO of AccessTek. "Over 20-plus years we've built a reputation as a trusted advisor to the midmarket, so it is with significant consideration that we've forged this partnership. It's clear from our research that the cloud is the future of financial management, and Intacct will be a valuable addition to our portfolio -- providing both significant benefits to our clients and a highly lucrative revenue stream for AccessTek. Cloud computing and Intacct have tremendous momentum and we are excited to get on board."

"Our mission is to help every small and midsized business adopt cloud computing and Intacct to improve efficiency, increase profitability and make better financial decisions. Partnerships with leaders like AccessTek are a huge step forward in our effort to realize this vision," said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels at Intacct. "AccessTek is yet another top Microsoft VAR that has seen the light and made the move to cloud computing with Intacct. We are keenly aware of the significant contributions that Lindy and AccessTek have made to the industry, and we are flattered to have been chosen as their exclusive cloud financial applications partner."
