Peek Under the Hood: Tallie’s comprehensive integration with Intacct

Featuring the first and only real-time, no click, bi-directional sync between an accounting system and expense management software.

In November, Tallie & Intacct announced their direct integration, offering early evaluation to select customers and accounting firms. Now that this evaluation period has passed and even more features have been released, we’d like to take you on a trip through the integration, highlighting key features and benefits that Tallie and Intacct users will love.

Real-Time, No Click, Bi-directional Sync

Yes, you read that correctly. When a change is made to your dimensional data in Intacct, it is immediately reflected in Tallie. When a change is made to your dimensional data in Tallie, it is immediately reflected in Intacct. No more clicking the sync button, no more scheduled nightly syncs. It’s just that simple!

Tallie-expense-reports-intacct-integration-sync

Since its inception, Tallie has offered real-time bi-directional sync with all of our integrations, meaning that any change made in Tallie is immediately reflected in your other accounting and bill pay systems. We’re the only expense management system to offer this, and Intacct is our first integration partner to offer the same technology in the reverse. Intacct’s rules-based logic, called SmartEvents, enables Tallie-connected companies to trigger immediate updates from Intacct to Tallie. Best of all, installing support for Tallie SmartEvents in your Intacct account is as simple as uploading an .xml file (or what Intacct calls a Package.)

Full Dimension Support with Smart Setup

Intacct is often selected because it features multi-dimensional tracking of transactional line items. It puts significantly less pressure on a complex Chart of Accounts, and allows for much more robust financial reporting. Our integration supports all Intacct dimensions: GL accounts, items, Cash Management accounts, locations/entities, customers, vendors, projects, classes, and departments.

Even better, Tallie uses Intacct dimensional data to deliver a smart setup right out of the box. When Intacct is connected to your Tallie account, our software uses Employee and Project managers to immediately preconfigure your approval chains. Tallie will also scan your advanced Projects for Resources and user restrictions, matching your Project-tracking preferences. If a user is already listed as a Resource in Intacct, Tallie will automatically grant them permission to track expenses against the Project.

Furthermore, whenever a credit card is marked as Non-Reimbursable in Tallie, we will attempt to match that card to a Charge Card Account within Intacct’s Cash Management. Tallie will then dynamically assign the matching vendor and GL liability account based on the data present in Intacct. As you can see, Tallie’s automation allows your expense management software to remain in lock-step with your accounting system.

Direct Export to Accounts Payable Module

Tallie expense reports can be exported directly to the Intacct Accounts Payable module. Reimbursable expenses are gathered together in one bill per expense report, payable to the Employee’s mapped Vendor account. Non-reimbursable expenses are similarly gathered in a single bill due to the Credit Card Vendor. As always, mixing and matching of reimbursable and non-reimbursable expenses in the same expense report is encouraged! Tallie knows to divide the report on export, creating two unique bills based on reimbursable status.

Tallie-expense-reports-intacct-integration-export

When exporting, Tallie generates Accounts Payable bills with complete line item data, including all dimensional tagging for each expense. All source documents, including receipts and copies of your original Tallie expense reports, are sent to Intacct attached to the bill. This ensures that all information required for audit preparedness stays in the accounting system, for centralized access.

Multi-Method Support for Non-Reimbursable Charges

We know that, when it comes to corporate credit cards, Intacct users either love or hate the Cash Management module. That’s why Tallie supports non-reimbursables through both the Accounts Payable and Cash Management modules. For those who prefer the Cash Management module, Tallie provides a pre-configured export template that will generate a .CSV file compatible to the Cash Management import tool. If you want to skip the .CSV, Tallie now allows the export of non-reimbursable charges as bills payable to the credit card vendor, as outlined above.

Tallie + Bill.com + Intacct = Seamless Expense Management

Evaluating expense management software is a difficult process. Finance teams require that any solution works seamlessly with accounting systems in order to deliver real automation value to the company.

We consider ourselves to be leaders in financial application integration and data synchronization, but the only way to judge our expertise is by experiencing the results first-hand. This is the first video in a series of product demonstrations that reveal Tallie’s powerful expense management and integration capabilities. We’d like you to be the judge.

In this 8 minute video, we cover Tallie’s expense management process from initial receipt capture all the way through to reimbursement and accounting using our Tallie – Bill.com – Intacct accounting workflow, one of many accounting workflow options offered by Tallie.

From the very beginning, the receipt image travels with the expense and report through to the very end, empowering managers and finance teams to appropriately evaluate expense and prepare for audit. Upon completion, a paid bill is logged in Intacct with all expense line items mapped to the general ledger and accounting dimensions, with direct access to original documentation in Bill.com.

New in Tallie: Location-Based Expense Management

With the quality of our deep Bill.com and QuickBooks integrations, Tallie sets a new standard for financial software integration by delivering realtime synchronization of accounting list data and export of expense reports mapped directly to the general ledger. Now our team is focused on extending our high standard of synchronization across all major accounting platforms integrated with Bill.com, including Intacct, Xero and Netsuite.

We are pleased to announce that we have completed a major step in this process: inclusion of location-based expense management, a data field used by most major accounting systems, with the exception of QuickBooks.

Any distributed business with franchise locations or divisional offices has a need to account on the basis of Location, in addition to standard dimensions such as Department, Project, Vendor, Employee, etc. Typically, these Locations are assigned on the basis of Project or Person. Tallie’s new location-based expense management can pull the full list of Locations from a customer’s accounting system (via Bill.com) and allow administrators to assign these locations directly to People and/or Projects. When expenses are incurred by specific individuals or on specific projects, they will be accounted to one Location, which will be mapped appropriately to the accounting system in the bill that Tallie delivers to Bill.com.

Tallie-location-based-expense-management-Intacct-Netsuite-Xero-Bill.com

Tallie expense management software now supports import of Location data and mapping of expenses to Locations across a variety of accounting systems, including Intacct, Xero and Netsuite.

This is just one step in our efforts to deliver a seamless & standardized expense management process, no matter which systems you choose for Tallie integration.
