CEO of The Answer Company Speaks at Sage Intacct Advantage 2019
Last week at Sage Intacct’s Advantage Conference, held at MGM Grade Las Vegas, The Answer Company was highlighted as the 6th Fastest-Growing Partner for Sage Intacct globally and ranked 16th in Committed Monthly Repeat Revenue (CMRR) globally in FY19. CEO & President, Shawn Ostheimer, was also on stage as a speaker during the Partner Keynote Address.
This is especially outstanding, as Sage Intacct is the newest addition to The Answer Company’s portfolio of solutions, although it has been in business for over 25 years and added other inspiring products to its portfolio over the years, such as Sage X3, for mid-size to enterprise-level companies. The Sage Intacct Advantage conference comes on the heels of another stand-out year for Sage Intacct. In 2019, it was awarded two Top-Rated Awards from both TrustRadius and G2Crowd, the leading B2B software review websites, in the Accounting & Budgeting and ERP categories and Top Customer Satisfaction category, respectively. Alongside that, CPA Practice Advisor gave the platform a full 5-star review, and CFO Magazine named the company as one of its Tech Companies to Watch 2019. Further afield, the product was officially launched in Australia and is about to launch in the United Kingdom this month.
Sage Intacct Advantage 2019, boasting 3,500 attendees, was the largest-ever gathering of both platform partners and users. Many of the company’s focus areas for growth were cornerstones of keynotes and workshops across the whole conference. For example, they have made a renewed commitment to embedding AI and Machine Learning principles into their software, in order to strengthen their position as the best-in-class cloud accounting solution on the market.
While several members of The Answer Company’s Executive & Sage Intacct team attended both the Partner Summit and Customer events at Sage Intacct’s Advantage Conference, Shawn Ostheimer, CEO and President of The Answer Company, was part of a panel of top partners during the Partner Summit Keynote Address. He was joined on stage by representatives from Alta Vista Technologies, Sockeye Consulting, and Express Information Systems – three top US Partners that also sell Sage Intacct and are quickly growing as well.
Speaking from the stage, Ostheimer said,
“We don’t want to be perceived as constantly selling. We want to add value. We approach customers with really two main pillars. First is purely education – about cloud, and about Sage Intacct. Then we have Account Managers who are there to build that specific, personal relationship and begin those conversations.”
These relationships, he noted, were key. The Answer Company is a Value Added Reseller of Sage Intacct. Their depth of product knowledge and 25 years of experience positions them in an ideal place for helping potential customers get the most out of a solution that is earning its title as “one to watch”.
