SAN JOSE, Calif., April 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Intacct, a leader in cloud financial management and accounting software, today announced it has been named to CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide, and awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. The CRN Partner Program Guide identifies the IT channel's top partner programs. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors who give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The list methodology is based on objective criteria that takes into account each vendor's investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. Vendors are assessed using information provided in their completed applications.

Intacct has built a comprehensive network of partners, with proven capabilities, delivering high quality services, support, and software to help companies get the most value from their Intacct investment.

With 22 of the Top 100 CPA firms, 21 of the Top 100 VARs in the industry, 20 "VAR Stars," and five firms on Accounting Today's list of Technology Pacesetters, Intacct boasts the strongest channel program of any cloud financial vendor.
"The companies listed in CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide represent a comprehensive list of the best channel programs in the market today," said Kelley Damore, senior vice president and editorial director, for UBM Tech Channel's CRN. "The 5-star award is reserved for vendors that understand that a successful partnership does not rely solely on the technology. By offering their partners tools, education, and regular updates, vendors on this list go above and beyond traditional support to ensure a mutually beneficial partnership."

We've established a program that offers these firms a true partnership, where we work together to grow their practice around Intacct and set them up for long-term success."
