Financial Management Enhancements

Sage Intacct now features match tolerance functionality that compares the quantities and unit prices that appear on converted Purchasing transactions to ensure your company pays the proper amount for what you ordered. For example, if your workflow is to convert purchase orders to vendor invoices, Intacct comparison verifies that the quantity and unit price details agree on the purchase order, PO receipt, and vendor invoice.

In addition, new document sequencing in accounts receivable allows you to track and reconcile payments more easily. Let’s say, for example, you have a posted payment that was applied to multiple invoices and adjustments. Now, you can run a custom report based on the Payment ID to see which transactions the payment was applied to.

Lastly if you use electronic bank files, you can now use them in Time and Expenses to pay employee expense reimbursements.

Industry-Specific Enhancements

For companies in the medical industry, you can now integrate with EMRConnect to simplify the process of moving general ledger data from your electronic medical records (EMR) system into Sage Intacct.

Other notable Updates

A range of smaller, but collectively impactful new or enhanced features in Sage Intacct 2023 Release 3 include:

  • In multi-currency companies, you can now apply payments for individual invoices directly from the Invoices list. Previously, you could only do this if your company uses a single currency.
  • If you work with multiple entities in Sage Intacct, you can now restrict the creation of General Ledger transactions to the entity level.
  • A handful of new user interface improvements such as list enhancements that allow you to drill down more easily to transaction detail.
