DataBlend supports nearly 40 Sage Intacct VAR and SIAP partners and has over 400 joint customers with Sage Intacct. Hear what DataBlend Sage Intacct partners and customers have to say:
RKL eSolutions: "DataBlend provides a compelling blend of power, ease of use, and low TCO."
Strategic Accounting Outsource Solutions: "There are many use cases for utilizing DataBlend. We have several clients in the queue for automating Sage Intacct. Our overall mission is to automate and streamline processes for time savings. Having more time allows us to focus on more client projects."
Lavoie CPA: "Working with DataBlend has been an easy collaborative process. Their willingness to be flexible as we built the automation during the implementation process was phenomenal. In addition to that flexibility, they also challenged us. We brainstormed scenarios and took the time to find the right solutions. Getting the right footing is essential to our overall success."
Mauldin & Jenkins: "Automation has been a significant factor in helping us reduce our close time. Our partnership with DataBlend will get us to our goal of a three-day close."
BST: "I wish I had DataBlend five years ago!"
Birch Family Services: "DataBlend was very easy to deploy. It was a straightforward process that didn't need to involve our IT department."
J2 Interactive: "Prior to DataBlend, we spent hours manually processing invoices into Sage Intacct and then manually importing them into Mavenlink – with DataBlend, the payments get pulled every night from Sage Intacct to Mavenlink. It takes 5 minutes. DataBlend has been a huge timesaver that has dramatically reduced errors."
