Q&A Forum

Can anyone share a pros and cons analysis of Intacct vs. Netsuite?

I do not see anything recent on this site. Particularly interested in comparing features around advertising revenue recognition, fixed assets accounting, and consolidation

It will always depend on your company's use case and I can't speak to Netsuite having only used the Intacct side of the equation. If you look at the Product Reviews section here on Proformative I think you will find some useful information on both applications.

For fixed assets, I would use one of the FAS products. NetSuite - I think that, if consolidations is needed, you will have to download to spreadsheets, unless you can figure out a G/L coding system with divisions which can work. (You may lose some of the KPI functionality.)

I agree with Ken that it will depend on the use case. My experience has only been with NetSuite with regards to the two ERP systems mentioned. Other than pricing (it's generally more expensive than Intacct), I have come to like NetSuite. I'm currently using the advance revenue module (NS add-on) for a SaaS company and find that it is working well. NetSuite has multi-entity support through their OneWorld add-on. I have not used OneWorld, but have priced it out and have found it too expensive for the needs of a few cost centers (sales offices) outside of the US. I'll add that NS's Gold support has been worth the investment in my situations.
