Intacct Business Partners Shine on Top VAR Listing

Bob Scott's 2012 VAR Stars List Includes 20 Intacct Partners, By Far the Most Among Cloud Financial Management and Accounting Software Vendors

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A proud group of Intacct business partners were honored last week by industry influencer Bob Scott in his annual VAR Stars list, which recognizes the achievements of mid-market accounting software resellers. In all, one hundred companies were included on the 2012 list, of which 20 were Intacct channel partners. This represents a significant jump from 2011, when Intacct had nine partners on the list. Among cloud application providers, Intacct had by far the highest representation on the list, equaling the number of partners from the next two cloud providers combined.

The Intacct Business Partner Program continues to attract the industry's top talent. Intacct partners named to this year's list generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue and served hundreds of organizations across every US region and key vertical markets. Using Intacct's flexible, cloud-based system these firms also built dozens of innovative, industry-specific add-on solutions to extend the value of Intacct even further and drive additional revenue. The results have been outstanding, with Intacct Business Partners closing more than three times as many new deals in the past fiscal year versus the prior year.

Intacct partners recognized on the 2012 VAR Stars list include: Aktion Associates, Armanino McKenna, Arxis Technology, Brittenford Systems, Central Consulting Group, e2b teknologies, Eide Bailly, InnoVergent, InterDyn Artis, InterDyn BMI, InterDyn Cargas, JMT Consulting Group, L. Kianoff, LBMC Technologies, Martin & Associates, McGladrey, Plus Computer Solutions, Sererra, Shafer Solutions, and Synergy Business Systems.

"Working with these companies every day, we were not at all surprised to see them receive this very well-deserved industry recognition," said Taylor Macdonald, vice president of Channels at Intacct. "We have built a world-class partner program that attracts the top firms in the industry. Every Intacct partner shares our focus on providing world-class financial management and accounting applications, first-rate client service, and industry leadership."

Intent on maintaining its elite status, Intacct increased support for its channel program in 2012. Several key hires were made to the sales and marketing teams, the number and variety of marketing programs grew significantly, and partners received even more support with client onboarding, product training, marketing, sales, and implementation. This year's most important channel initiative, however, has been development of Intacct's innovative hybrid sales model, which seeks to align resources from the direct and channel teams, while minimizing channel conflict.

"This is all part of our philosophy to create truly meaningful and lasting partnerships," said Macdonald. "Intacct has made partner ownership of client relationships a top priority. We believe this perspective, coupled with our 'easy to do business with' attitude, is in the best interests of our partners and their clients, and will enable more Intacct partners to join the VAR Stars list in 2013 and beyond."

The selection of mid-market accounting software resellers for Bob Scott's VAR Stars rests on one basic principal: quality, not revenue, as the deciding factor in picking the 100 businesses that are selected for this honor. VARs from very small shops to the largest participants in the business have been selected in past years and in this year's list. A variety of criteria go into the definition of quality including awards resellers have received from vendors, leadership in the industry, and development and acceptance of important software products by the resellers.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts, GM of Platform at FinancialForce.com, will discuss the value of business applications on wearable ...

Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds. Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers – thous...
