Intacct CEO, Mike Braun, to Present at Software 2008 as One of Fourteen Innovation Showcase Winners

SAN JOSE, Calif. (April 09, 2008) –

Intacct, a leader in on-demand financial management and accounting applications, today announced it was selected by Sand Hill Group for its Innovation Showcase, which spotlights the top innovators in the software industry. Intacct was one of only fourteen companies to earn this prestigious recognition in 2008. Mike Braun, CEO of Intacct, will present in the Innovation Showcase Theater at TechWeb’s Software 2008 Conference in Las Vegas, April 29-30.

Intacct was a winner in the Software as a Service (SaaS) category, which highlights companies that represent the next generation of pioneers in the software industry.

“This year’s Showcase winners illustrate that innovation is alive and well in the software space,” said M.R. Rangaswami, Sand Hill Group co-founder and Software 2008 executive conference director. “Intacct represents one of fourteen novel companies that we believe will play a notable role in the software ecosystem.”

“Before Intacct, financial application software was one of the slowest moving, least innovative sectors of the software industry. Little had changed in years,” said Mike Braun, president and CEO of Intacct. “Software as a Service is not just a better way to deliver financial applications; it is going to fundamentally reshape the way the finance department works by enabling flexibility, visibility and effectiveness not possible with old on-premises software. Our selection to the 2008 Innovation Showcase is a great honor.”
