Intacct Integration Overview


Mavenlink’s Intacct integration makes it possible for organizations to automatically sync project information between the two applications. Manage projects in Mavenlink and perform accounting functions in Intacct without having to import/export or manually enter data twice.


  • Improve accuracy of revenue forecasts
  • Learn which projects can accelerate revenue
  • Save time on manual data entry 
  • Improved communication between project delivery teams, accounting, and clients
  • Supply accounting with visibility into when projects are created
  • Allow delivery teams tosee when invoices are paid
