Bizo Moves to Intacct Cloud Financial Software to Save Time and Money

Business Audience Marketing Company Replaces On-Premises System With Intacct to Streamline Processes and Improve Financial Operations

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2011) - Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting software, today announced that Bizo, the leading solution for reaching and engaging business professionals online, has switched its financial system to Intacct. Bizo had been using an on-premise software solution that was expensive to maintain and required a large number of add-on solutions to properly manage their business. Moving the company's financial system to the cloud with Intacct will enable Bizo to use one complete financial system to reduce costs, streamline key financial processes and enhance visibility into company performance.

The Bizo platform gives marketers cost-effective access and insight into business professionals -- the most valuable online audience segment. Hundreds of leading brands count on Bizo's unique ability to precisely target more than 80 percent of the U.S. business population on thousands of sites across the business Web. 

After struggling to make the existing on-premise solution work for the finance team, Bizo eventually set out to find a modern system that could handle all their needs and offered integration with the company's other systems, such as their salesforce.com CRM applications. Bizo evaluated several solutions, but Intacct stood out from the competition due to its intuitive user interface, deep financial capabilities and pre-built integration with Salesforce CRM.

"Our previous solution was really complicated and hard to use, and also required too much use of Excel for basic processes," said Brenda Luebbers, Director of Finance for Bizo. "When we evaluated the top financial applications on the market, we were impressed with Intacct. More than any other solution out there, Intacct offered the functionality we needed, in a system that was straight-forward and easy to use."

Intacct's tight integration with Salesforce CRM will save Bizo a significant amount of time and duplicate data entry. Previously, sales data had to be entered twice -- once into Salesforce CRM and then again into the old financial system. With Intacct, data entered in Salesforce is immediately available in Intacct, and vice versa. This streamlines the overall quote to cash process, enabling Bizo to speed their invoicing process. 

Bizo is also excited by Intacct's multi-dimensional reporting capabilities and real-time dashboards. The company's CEO and CFO rely on a series of Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to manage the business and Intacct will enable easy access to both financial and operational KPI information. Furthermore, Intacct's project accounting, multi-entity and multi-currency capabilities are in line with Bizo's business focus and aggressive growth plans. 

"Instead of fighting against an outdated financial system built 20 years ago, Intacct gives us a modern system that was designed with all the things we need," commented Luebbers. "We're at a critical stage in our company development, and the switch to Intacct will allow us to grow the business without needing to grow the finance team. We couldn't be happier with our decision to move to Intacct."
