    Sophy Lai of AWS Truepower shares the top must haves for a cloud solution

    From Nancy Rivas, Intacct Comunity Manager, on Intacct's View from the Cloud Blog:

    Sophy Lai of AWS TruepowerI recently sat down with Sophy Lai, the CFO at AWS Truepower, LLC and an Intacct MVP. AWS Truepower is a long-time leader and innovator in renewable energy providing technical consulting, software, data, and advisory services for the wind and solar energy markets.

    AWS Truepower had been struggling with an outdated, on-premises accounting solution from Sage, when Sophy was tasked with upgrading the company to a modern, cloud-based financial system. 

    After evaluating multiple solutions, AWS Truepower selected Intacct and today they are thriving.

    My conversation with Sophy covered the needs AWS Truepower had, why they ultimately chose Intacct, and some major wins the company has seen since implementing.

    NANCY RIVAS: Sophy, what were some of the key requirements AWS Truepower identified as being the most important factors a solution provider could offer?

    SOPHY LAI: As a company, we knew we needed a solution that met specific criteria: a cloud-based solution that offered great reporting capabilities, global consolidation, multi-entity, multi-currency, project accounting with a Salesforce integration, and revenue recognition.

    NR: And you ended up choosing Intacct!

    SL: Yes. As we began researching, we also recognized additional must-have items, including:

    • excellent customer service
    • robust platform capability
    • reasonable pricing
    • a dedicated, capable implementation project manager

    Intacct met all our top requirements; it’s a cloud-based solution, offers excellent customer service, and features robust platform capability for operation and finance. Our decision to move forward with Intacct was based on each need being met. It’s been a year since we went live! more
