7 Questions Hospitality Businesses Asked About Sage Intacct

  • 7 min read

I think we’ve outgrown our current accounting software. How can Sage Intacct help?

We often encounter restaurants that find it’s time to step up from on-premise software such as QuickBooks as they grow in the number of entities, locations, brands, or complexity. If you’ve reached the point where your growth is being held back by manual data entry, cumbersome consolidations, spreadsheet manipulation, and lack of controls, a cloud restaurant accounting solution can automate your financial processes to save you time. By automating those repetitive, time-consuming tasks, Sage Intacct helped our customers save hundreds of hours a week and get access to real-time data.

And, as your business grows, you need an accounting system that grows with you. Sage Intacct provides a scalable architecture that supports growth, giving you the ability to set up new entities in minutes.

What are the features of Sage Intacct’s hospitality accounting software?

Sage Intacct built the hospitality and franchise accounting software to support the evolving needs of the hospitality industry. The hospitality accounting software features include:

  • Automated Multi-entity financial management. Push-button consolidations aggregate transactions in minutes across your hospitality business with multiple entities, stores, regions, properties, and brands. Gain efficiencies and free-up resources by automating and streamlining financial multi-entity processes like procurement, month end close and intercompany consolidations.
  • Hospitality specific reporting and dashboards. Improve cash flow and revenue forecasting with real-time visibility into cost and performance data giving you the insights that you need to make informed management decisions. Gain real-time visibility into metrics and KPIs that matter for your business like RevPar, ADR, cost of goods sold, food cost percentage, RevPash, etc.
  • True cloud technology with open API: Track metrics central to your organization’s entire business by leveraging key data from your property management system (PMS), point-of-sale (POS), payroll and other existing or future systems important for your business.
  • Strong core accounting: The key core accounting features provide the foundation for your financials: a dimensional general ledger, accounts payable, accounts receivable, cash management, order management, purchasing, and Sage Collaborate to communicate with your team in real-time.

What’s the difference between Sage Intacct and QuickBooks for hospitality organizations?

  • Multi-entity management efficiency: You’ll no longer need separate logins and separate chart of accounts for each entity. Manage all your entities from one place which also allows for easy intercompany consolidations. Additionally, with Sage Intacct you’ll be able to view performance for each entity, rolled up to the organization level or even compare/contrast across entities.
  • Anytime, anywhere business visibility: Real-time visibility into hospitality specific metrics is essential for faster financial decisions. QuickBooks offers canned reports – and no dashboards – so your visibility is limited, and you’re often forced to make decisions based on outdated information.
  • Increased productivity: Automation and workflows allow you to streamline processes to save time and reduce errors. And if you are like many hospitality organizations with multi-entities to manage, QuickBooks doesn’t provide built-in capabilities for these complex processes, leaving users over-reliant on spreadsheets and manual data entry.
  • Scalability: As your business grows, you need an accounting system that can grow with you. Sage Intacct provides a scalable architecture that allows for an increase in transaction volume and the ability to easily add new entities, a multi-ledger system, and robust financial controls to ensure compliance and auditability. Despite its popularity as a business application for small businesses, QuickBooks simply wasn’t designed for growing hospitality organizations that need advanced functionality to manage sophisticated processes.
