With Sage Intacct project costing and billing software, you can combine different billing terms on a single project or multiple projects and deliver a consolidated invoice.

Reduce revenue leakage

Sage Intacct project costing and billing software cuts revenue leakage through an integrated process spanning sales, finance, and operations. Personalised dashboards give you real-time visibility into budget vs. actual, billed vs. unbilled expenses, and billable hours vs. unbillable hours. You can even track change orders and not-to-exceed amount triggers so you can carefully manage the project and adjust plans as needed.

Automated revenue recognition

You need flexible billing terms to win and keep clients, but that can also make it difficult to comply with rules and controls and meet stringent GAAP requirements. Sage Intacct uses the same data for automated billing and revenue recognition, but the automated billing schedule is separate from automated revenue-recognition schedule, so you can do what’s right for your customers–and stay compliant.

Before deploying Sage Intacct, we envisioned CRM, time tracking, and finance systems that worked seamlessly together to automate our entire book-to-bill cycle. Now, that vision is a reality.
