Nextep Chooses AcctTwo and Intacct to Manage High Growth

AcctTwo, a leading consulting firm and provider of cloud-based financial management solutions, announced that the firm will help Nextep move to Intacct to help manage multiple legal entities and provide robust and accurate reporting for top-level management. Nextep is a premier Professional Employer Services firm based in Norman, Oklahoma that provides small to mid-sized organizations with payroll administration, benefits administration, HR consulting, and risk management in a single, bundled approach. After a rigorous software evaluation, the company chose Intacct over other on-premise and cloud solutions as the better fit for their business needs.

Previous Business Challenges Faced by Nextep:

  • Nextep’s chart of accounts had to be maintained at the entity level.
  • Nextep’s finance and accounting department was using Excel heavily in modifying and analyzing financial reports.
  • Nextep was forced to access each legal entity separately to book activity and inter-company transactions.

Reasons for Selecting Intacct:

  • Intacct will scale with the company and keep pace with its rapid growth.
  • Intacct’s Dimensions will help Nextep reconcile benefits liabilities.
  • Intacct will allow Nextep to implement best-practice approval workflows for accounts payable, journal entries, and other areas.

Key reasons Nextep chose to move to Intacct over other solutions evaluated:

  • Intacct was found to have greater dimensional support and more robust out of the box multi-entity capability.
  • Nextep was looking for a true multi-tenant cloud-based accounting solution, a feature not available with legacy on-premise systems.

Highlighted Comments from Nextep VP of Finance and Accounting:

“We were looking to move to a truly modern and scalable financial management system like Intacct,” said Jenny Coke, Nextep’s VP of Finance and Accounting. “The ability to automate real-time accurate reports for our management team, and Intacct’s flexible approval workflows really helped make the decision an easy one for us.”

Return on Investment:

  • Payback Period of 3 Months
  • First Year Net Benefit – $108,134
  • Three Year Net Benefit – $324,402
