Intacct brings our literacy delivery services into the future with integration to an automated inventory distribution process, and all-around flexibility in ease of access, financial reporting, visibility, and nonprofit compliance.

Intacct partner, Synergy Business Solutions, announced today that Raising A Reader selected Synergy to implement Intacct accounting software to help solve its financial management challenges. A proven national program focused on child literacy based in Redwood City, California, Raising A Reader chose cloud-based Intacct for its comprehensive functionality, integration with other best-in-class solutions, including QStock inventory, and its ability to help automate their accounting processes.

“Our current system was holding us back,” said Nida Crisostomo, Senior Director of Operations at Raising A Reader. “Intacct brings our literacy delivery services into the future with integration to an automated inventory distribution process, and all-around flexibility in ease of access, financial reporting, visibility, and nonprofit compliance. We look forward to significant new efficiencies.”

The fact that Intacct is cloud-based was also a major factor in Raising A Reader’s selection. With more than 2,700 child-literacy and family-engagement program partners in 34 states nationwide, the cloud environment allows secure and anytime-anywhere access across the country to the organization’s new system.

“Intacct’s powerful financial automation and insight will serve Raising A Reader well for years to come,” said Irene Bushnell, Intacct Practice Manager at Synergy. “It’s an efficient modern system that will improve their managerial visibility, allow them to be more proficient in their day-to-day accounting activities and distribution services, and help cut costs throughout the organization. Intacct helps nonprofits achieve a better return on their mission through the use of cloud-based nonprofit accounting software.”
