Additionally, Intacct announced a partnership with Clarizen, integrating Clarizen's cloud computing-based work management application with the Intacct cloud-based financial management system and Intacct's new project accounting application.

Clarizen's cloud-based work management solution lets organizations manage projects, resources and tasks; includes time and expense reporting, and support ticket management. The companies will integrate Intacct's Management and project accounting applications with Clarizen's work management application, and collaborate to market the new joint solution.

The new combined offering, which does not yet have an announced name, is intended to make it easier for service-based and project-based businesses to optimize the service delivery lifecycle, letting service employees initiate, track and manage delivery of their projects in Clarizen, while the finance side makes use of Intacct to manage the financial implications of service delivery, according to the two companies

"Clarizen is for service organizations with much more sophisticated needs for service delivery," says Intacct's Wood. "Intacct is helping Finance manage things, Clarizen is to help the teams with their project, like document management, that have some financial implication to track. For example, if you have 200 people working on 50 projects, Clarizen helps manage 'do I have the right people and are they applied to the right project?'"

The target date for the integration availability is by the end of this quarter.
