Intacct has enhanced its cloud accounting software, the Intacct Financial Management System, with more than 100 new features.

Enhancements in the latest release, Intacct Spring 2012, include an updated mobile interface for dashboards and approvals; streamlined business intelligence capabilities; data import, company setup, and end user management enhancements; and greater flexibility in security controls to provide secure collaboration with critical financial data.

When users log in from a smartphone or tablet, Intacct will automatically detect the device and adapt the interface accordingly. A new dashboards icon gives mobile and tablet users one-click access to their latest financial and operational data. In addition, a new approvals icon enables mobile users to approve expense reports, timesheets, purchases requisitions, and reimbursements when they are out of the office.

A new interface in the "account groups" view delivers more organized reporting components, enabling users to build multifaceted reports for analyzing financial data. For example, an AR manager can quickly view data for the days sale outstanding, while a sales director can drill down into departmental expenses, and a CFO can glance at changes to the company's financial positions or key performance indicators.

In addition, users can now allocate financial data across all dimensions, including locations, departments, classes, customers, vendors, employees, and items. Automatically allocating financial transactions across these dimensions ensures finance managers can more accurately analyze and report the financial results of the business using the business criteria that matter the most to an organization.

Intacct now allows users to more efficiently assign roles, permissions and client access. From a single view, administrators can assign roles to large numbers of users, and update role changes with one click. CPAs and partners using Intacct can manage staff access to client companies by region and service type from the user group screen.

Other highlights of the Spring 2012 release recommended by users include customizable timesheet periods; improved data import and company setup processes; and more flexibility and control of the output of customer printed documents. Users can now tailor their output for the entire company, or by specific customer to meet their precise needs to eliminate any questions from customers or disputes.
