UNICEF Australia chooses Sage Intacct to automate grants and donations

Sage empowers charity sector following the launch of Sage Intacct in Australia.

Sydney Australia, 28th October 2019: Sage, the market leader in cloud financial management solutions, has today announced that UNICEF Australia will be the first globally recognised charity to use Sage Intacct in Australia. 

Sage Intacct has the functionality to support the unique operations that face the finance function of the charity and not-for-profit sectors. Sage Intacct allows customers to gain greater visibility across multiple systems without manual input. This allows organisations to dedicate more time to improving the way they support the community and those in need.

UNICEF Australia has not invested in a new finance system in over 20 years and will see huge benefits to operational efficiency by having their financials managed in the cloud. Like most charities UNICEF Australia receives grants and donations which often require manual work to get entered into their finance system. Following the roll-out of Sage Intacct, this process will be automated due to the integration between Sage Intacct and Salesforce. This will eventually create a seamless cloud integration between the charity’s CRM and the finance function.

Tony Stuart, CEO, UNICEF Australia said, “At UNICEF our mission is to ensure every child has a fair chance at life. Our finance function is currently inundated with manual admin and unable to spend time on crucial tasks. The integration of Sage Intacct into the UNICEF organisation will alleviate current pain points and allow us to channel recourses into achieving our goals.”

Kerry Agiasotis, Executive Vice President and Managing Director of Sage Asia Pacific, Sage Australia said, “At Sage, we are passionate about providing business solutions that support organisations who are giving back to communities in need. With Sage Intacct now in the Australian market, we are excited by the prospect of leveraging the rich history that Sage Intacct has had in serving charities internationally and working with organisations such as UNICEF Australia and our local business partners to help make an impact to under-represented communities in Australia”.

AlphaSys are a partner of Sage Intacct. The AlphaSys mission is to empower change-making organisations to drive positive social impact through world-leading technologies and best-practices. Along with their Sage Intacct partnership, AlphaSys are a dedicated Salesforce implementation partner, offering a single consulting partner for both platforms to the for-purpose sectors.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with UNICEF Australia on their Finance and CRM implementations. The market leading NFP accounting platform, Sage Intacct allows us to integrate with the core Salesforce Fundraising CRM to drive operational efficiency, data insights and a scalable platform for future innovation. This means UNICEF can deliver more value to the people who need it most - the children and communities UNICEF partner with around the globe.” Justin Yoon, CEO Director, AlphaSys.

The partnership, which was powered by the integration between Sage Intacct and Salesforce comes in the lead up to Salesforces annual conference, Dreamforce which Sage is a sponsor for.
