What are our customers saying after replacing a Sage product with Acumatica?


Full function ERP

Sage Intacct is primarily a Financial Management software system. There is some functionality to also support light inventory requirements, Order Management, and Construction-specific industry needs. But the capabilities lacking include native CRM, Warehouse Management, Field Service Management, along with vertical features supporting Manufacturing, Wholesale Distribution, and Retail-Commerce – which Acumatica provides out-of-the-box

Flexible licensing options

Both products are available through public cloud subscription licensing (SaaS), but Acumatica also offers alternate options to accommodate customers’ unique requirements. Check Acumatica ERP Pricing.

Multiple deployment options

While both products are available in the cloud, Acumatica also supports hybrid deployments for companies that want to keep sensitive data in-house. More importantly, Acumatica allows users to choose their upgrade schedule when it’s convenient. Sage Intacct upgrades occur automatically without input from customers, sometimes disrupting their operation.


Acumatica charges by computing resources used, not by user. Sage Intacct charges per user. These user costs increase as your company grows. Intacct also requires 3rd party products to round out their ERP portfolio which Acumatica natively provides, further increasing costs for licenses, integration, and maintenance.
