5 Reasons Accountants Still Need Intacct Contract Revenue Management

There’s a lot of buzz about the upcoming ASC 606 revenue recognition criteria guidelines that are designed to standardize contract accounting and thus reshape how companies recognize revenue. The new revenue recognition standard does not apply to everyone, such as accounting firms. Even if you’re exempt, however, proper contract management revenue recognition is still critical to the success of your business. And that’s where cloud-based Intacct Contract Revenue Management comes in.

ASC 606 eBook DownloadBuilt for accountants, Intacct simplifies revenue recognition management with automated revenue and expense reallocation—and provides insights into your financial and operational outcomes. It also gives you the flexibility to configure expense amortization to be the same or different from your revenue recognition criteria. Here’s how:

Automate day-to-day revenue tasks and regulatory compliance

Templates and schedules in Intacct automatically allocate revenue and amortize expenses for you, even as subscriptions and contracts change. For instance, you can add updates to a contract and let the system handle reallocation of revenue automatically—even into closed periods.

Simplify your processes from orders to revenue management

Contract revenue management lets you integrate with Salesforce for a seamless, bi-directional flow of order, customer, and contract data to save time and reduce errors from manual processes. You can streamline subscription and recurring revenue management for real-time updates to accounting and billing for discounts, usage, renewals, upgrades, cancellations, and other changes.
