Paychex Maximizes Accountant Productivity with New Sage Intacct Integration

Continuing its commitment to delivering best-in-class technology solutions that allow accountants to enhance productivity and better serve clients, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of integrated human capital management solutions for payroll, HR, retirement, and insurance services, today announced seamless, real-time integration from the Paychex General Ledger Service (GLS) to Sage Intacct®.


Helping to save time and reduce errors, this real-time integration provides accountants and their clients the critical information and data insights they need, when they need it, delivering data directly from the Paychex GLS to Sage Intacct. Users can easily sync payroll and accounting data, and post payroll entries to their Sage Intacct accounting package, in just seconds.

“In today’s digital world, we know accountants rely on multiple platforms to serve their clients’ diverse needs. While having access to a host of powerful tools delivers client value, data integrity is often a challenge,” said Tom Hammond, Paychex vice president of corporate strategy and product management. “With this new functionality, we’re delivering real-time data integration from two brands dedicated to serving the accounting community, Paychex and Sage Intacct.”

“Virtual CFO and client accounting services represent a great growth opportunity, and now make up roughly 10 percent of CPA firm revenues,” said Erik Asgeirsson, president and CEO of, the technology arm of the American Institute of CPAs. “A key component of this success is the continued automation of data inputs. This next stage of integration for Paychex and Sage Intacct will drive much greater efficiencies and is a big win for firms and their clients.”

The Paychex and Sage Intacct integration offers real-time integration from Paychex GLS to Sage Intacct, with automatic general ledger posting to Intacct dimensions as soon as payroll is released, all while protecting data integrity by easily identifying unlinked categories and quickly sending data from Paychex to Sage Intacct.

With automatic syncing, accountants can avoid the time-consuming process of manually keying payroll data into Sage Intacct, helping to enhance productivity and reduce errors.
