A great thing about Sage Intacct is that it’s maintenance-free and updates four times a year. The last quarterly update of 2018 happened on Friday, November 16th and we’re here to highlight the 4 key modules that came out with this release. Additionally, there are a few other enhancements that you’ll see now while using the software.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Budgeting and Planning Add-On” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text]Are you using spreadsheets and emails for all your business budgets and plans?

This new module allows for automated compliance and revenue recognition for nonprofit organizations, which will satisfy ASU 2018-08 standards. The feature offers a range of options, from milestone, performance, and installment.
The new General Ledger Dynamic Allocations feature allows Sage Intacct users to dynamically pull account source balances. It also automates the distribution across dimensions according to the basis calculation method specified at runtime.
This feature is available in the new Action UI- which if you are not using currently, we are highly encouraging for you to switch over to it. When the new release comes out in February, the software will automatically update and transition to this new interface. The sooner you get familiar with it, the better!
