History and Functions


Microsoft released Dynamics in 1993. The older of the two products Dynamics really does live up to its name as a dependable support system for:

  • Financial management
  • Accounting
  • Inventory management
  • Sales
  • Business intelligence and reporting
  • Human Resources and Payroll


In 1999, Intacct became one of the first web-based cloud accounting software programs.  The cloud convenience is truly appealing to many consumers, taking away the need for upgrades and hardware maintenance.

Intacct offers users:

  • Financial Reporting
  • Purchasing, Sales and use tax
  • Project accounting
  • Core accounting
  • Billing
  • Inventory Management

These are both wonderful options for any company looking to upgrade from QuickBooks. Although the study conducted by Find Accounting Software reported 10 different alternatives it’s clear that these two programs are hands-down the top contenders. While each product has its clear advantages, it’s up to you to decide which program is right for you.
