Oates & Company Joins Intacct Business Partner Program

Experienced Sage Partner Expands Portfolio With Intacct to Serve Growing Demand for Cloud Financial Applications

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) - Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting applications, today announced that Oates & Company, an experienced consulting services firm and long-time Sage partner, has joined the Intacct Business Partner Program. This new sales, marketing and development partnership with Intacct -- Oates & Company's first with a cloud computing vendor -- will help the firm meet growing demand for cloud-based financial management and accounting.

Oates & Company has been a trusted advisor to midmarket companies in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and nearby states since 1988. As more and more of its clients and prospects began indicating a preference for cloud computing and with no viable options from its existing partners, Oates & Company knew it needed to expand its portfolio. The firm evaluated both Intacct and NetSuite, ultimately choosing Intacct based on the depth and breadth of product functionality and Intacct's overall commitment to the channel.

"Intacct has put together a world-class channel program," said John Shepperson, director of business development at Oates & Company. "The Intacct community feels like a big, happy family with everyone working toward a common goal and you can just feel the momentum and excitement. We also really liked that there is a lot of executive involvement in the channel program and we see extensive of opportunities to grow our business and help companies in the Southeast."

From a product perspective, Oates & Company was particularly impressed by Intacct's intuitive look-and-feel and overall ease-of-use for all types of users. Intacct's extensive reporting and dashboard capabilities, strong multi-dimensional architecture, multi-entity functionality and robust project accounting capabilities offer a great way to expand its business with Professional Services firms, Healthcare organizations and Food Services companies. 

Intacct also provides Oates & Company with rich, cloud-based tools and web services for integrating, individualizing and extending Intacct to meet the unique needs of each client and each industry. For firms like Oates & Company this means enhanced business opportunities to customize Intacct for a particular client, to build repeatable solutions for key industries, and to develop entirely new applications that can be broadly marketed and sold.

"We plan to be very aggressive with respect to our partnership with Intacct, which we anticipate will help us further penetrate the professional services, healthcare and food services markets," said Shepperson. "Midmarket companies in these industries have been asking for a complete, cloud-based financial management system, and Intacct meets this need perfectly. We see Intacct as the cornerstone of a new growth phase for our firm and we are looking forward to having fun again." 

"We're very excited to welcome Oates & Company to the Intacct Business Partner Program," said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels for Intacct. "Our companies are united in the belief that cloud financial systems are the future of this industry. We look forward to helping Oates & Company deliver this message to organizations throughout the Southeastern U.S."
