SAN RAMON, Calif., Sept. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armanino LLP, the largest independent accounting and business consulting firm based in California, announced today that for the second year in a row it has been named Intacct VAR Partner of the Year. The financial management software company's award recognizes Armanino for excellence in customer satisfaction, implementation and cloud evangelism.
"Armanino is proud to have earned this award as it recognizes our dedication to our clients and our commitment to delivering premium, custom-tailored solutions," said Dave Burlington, Armanino's consulting partner and leader of the firm's Cloud Solutions practice. "Intacct is a leader in cloud accounting software development and an excellent partner that has enhanced our ability to deploy cost-effective and high-quality cloud consulting services to a variety of mid-sized and large businesses."
"Armanino has built a great team of people who know how to approach any size business, understand its needs and prescribe the right solution," said Taylor Macdonald, Intacct's vice president of Channels. "Most importantly, they get clients up and running in a way that transforms their business on time, on budget and with the results that were promised."
A 2014 Benchmark Study by the Cloud Accounting Institute reported that 71 percent of respondents signaled an intention to invest in a cloud solution for accounting and financial management. Over half of respondents said that they plan to use a cloud solution for budgeting and forecasting, and nearly half reported interest in these options for expense management.
"With nearly three-fourths of the survey's respondents reporting current cloud solution adoption, it's clear that cloud software no longer just an option, it is a competitive business necessity," said Lindy Antonelli, Armanino partner and founder of the Cloud Accounting Institute.
