San Jose, Calif. (March 13, 2006) –

Intacct Corporation, the leader in on-demand ERP, today announced that its partner network, the Trusted Advisor Program, is rapidly expanding with critical on-demand applications for content management, e-procurement, document delivery and outsourcing relationship management. Leading solution providers, including SpringCM, Periscope Holdings Inc., Esker Inc. and Janeeva Inc., join the Trusted Advisor Program to benefit from promotional opportunities, greater market penetration and increased sales.

“Intacct’s customers, who already know the cost and maintenance benefits of using an on-demand application, now have a complete content management solution available to them,” said Christine Mason, CEO of SpringCM. “Our partnership with Intacct further emphasizes SpringCM’s mission to serve people by bringing online content out of the server wasteland and making information easier to use, share and manage.”

SpringCM is an on-demand content management company that helps businesses reinvent the way information, such as documents, images and multi-media files are shared and managed both inside and outside organizations. SpringCM’s Web-based solutions provide greater collaboration capabilities, powerful search and retrieval capabilities, and content routing for files and documents. This fully-integrated suite of subscription solutions helps remove productivity barriers, such as storage waste, email attachments and slow network drives, so companies are able to reduce associated costs and hassles and improve ROI. SpringCM also integrates with other applications through easy-to-deploy Web services.

Thousands of companies rely on Intacct’s financial, supply chain, professional services automation and business intelligence application suite to run their operations. The Trusted Advisor Program enhances Intacct’s ERP On Demand with additional functionalities — such as CRM, e-commerce and payroll — and automatically synchronizes data between Intacct and the integrated third-party applications.

“A major challenge facing small and midsize businesses today is how to successfully address the complexities of integrating and customizing best-of-breed application suites,” said Robert J. Jurkowski, CEO and president of Intacct. “Intacct’s Trusted Advisor Program enables vendors, partners and customers to work together to build the most productive, cost-effective and flexible on-demand software solution.”

Among the companies to enroll as Intacct’s Trusted Advisors is Periscope, a leading provider of software and services designed specifically for purchasing professionals.

The unique functionality offered by BuySpeed accelerates routine business processes, expands buying opportunities and reduces overall costs. Additionally, Periscope is the official custodian of the NIGP Code — a widely adopted categorization standard created by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing, Inc.

“We are very excited about our partnership with Intacct,” said Kent Hollrah, president and COO of Periscope Holdings. “Intacct’s leadership in on-demand financial management solutions gives us a great opportunity to expand Periscope’s offerings. The Intacct-Periscope partnership will allow customers, seeking a hosted solution, to not only receive excellent financial software but also a best-in-class e-procurement solution.”

“We feel this is a significant partnership that demonstrates the full benefits of on-demand solutions,” said Mike Wenzel, vice president of sales, Americas, Esker. “By adding document delivery services to Intacct’s excellent hosted ERP solution, we’re helping users be more productive by outsourcing manual tasks like faxing and mailing.”

Janeeva Assurance(TM) software is used by companies with outsourced operations to maximize operational effectiveness, boost quality of deliverables, and minimize the risk and complexity of managing outsourced relationships. Companies with outsourced call center, application development, and back-office operations are using Janeeva Assurance to track and manage performance across single and multiple outsourcing engagements.

“Janeeva is pleased to partner with Intacct to provide an outsourcing relationship management solution to Intacct’s available on-demand portfolio,” said Vinay Gupta, CEO of Janeeva. “Adding outsourcing relationship management to Intacct’s suite of on-demand products will allow customers seeking an ORM solution to improve quality, reduce costs and meet business goals.”
