Sage offers several ERP and accounting software products to help you run your business. While the breadth of Sage’s product portfolio is wide and robust, Sage Intacct and Sage 100c remain two of the their most popular products.

We get a lot of questions about these two solutions – often in relation to one another. While they are both ERP and accounting solutions, they are very different platforms with different features.

  • Sage Intacct is a cloud solution with features more focused around:
    • Core accounting capabilities
    • Streamlining financial management
    • Versatile reporting
  • Sage 100c is typically an on-premise solution with features more focused around:
    • Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
    • Operations and process management
    • Manufacturing and inventory features

To help you better understand the differences between these two solutions, we put together this comparison guide.

Sage Intacct integrates natively with Sage CRM and (SFDC) – which is a big win for SFDC users who don’t want to go through the pain of custom integration for their CRM. For other integrations, Sage Intacct has a robust user-accessible add-on and application marketplace with integration tools, as well as a documented API for any team that would like to do a custom integration project.

Sage 100c only integrates natively with Sage CRM. Additionally, the platform doesn’t have a user-accessible add-on and application marketplace with integration tools, nor does it have a documented API. If you need to integrate a platform with Sage 100c, you would need to contact your third-party Sage partner to explore options.

Sage Intacct vs. Sage 100c: Not Quite Apples to Apples

Comparing Sage Intacct to Sage 100c isn’t quite like comparing apples to apples – it’s more like comparing Idaho potatoes to sweet potatoes.

They are both considered ERP and accounting solutions, but they have different features, strengths, and intended uses. Similarly, Idaho potatoes and sweet potatoes are both considered potatoes (fun fact: sweet potatoes are not technically potatoes!), but they have different flavors and nutritional values, and are used in very different recipes. Would you eat an Idaho potato pie with marshmallows? Yuck.
