In the past a basic implementation of a mid-market accounting or enterprise resource planning software was a lengthy process, 4-6 months. Stated on the Intacct website – with a proven methodology and repeatable process, you can be up and running with Intacct in as few as 60 days.
Intacct (2 – 3 Months)50%
Traditional ERP (4 – 6 Months)100%
While it is feasible to be up in running on Intacct in 60 days keep in mind that this requires collaboration, no delays, and good planning to ensure everything falls into palce. The truth is that most implementations will take 90 days (3 Months) or more for a successful implementation.
It is important to understand that the complexity of your business will have an impact on the overall timeline. For example additional Intacct software features, integrations to other business systems and custom development will all add additional time to your project.
Another thing to consider is that implementation is a collaborative process that will require work from both companies to make it successful. So this requires your team to have availability and be proactive in tasks like defining requirements, process review, training, defining chart of accounts, desired reporting, providing data, and testing. So consider these factors when planning on how long the Intacct implementation will take.
The implementation process is defined in a scope of work based on Intacct’s project management phases below. This will include tasks, deliverables, responsibilities and dependencies all laid out in a project proposal.
