South African National AIDS Council gains real-time visibility into operations with Sage Intacct
The South African National AIDS Council (SANAC), a national body that coordinates government, business and civil society in the fight against HIV, TB and sexually transmitted infections, has implemented the Sage Intacct cloud financial management platform to streamline financial reporting and management.

Before implementing Sage Intacct, the Council was running on Sage Pastel Partner, a desktop-based system. SANAC’s financial requirements had outgrown that solution and it wanted to find a cloud-based replacement that would offer deeper, multi-dimensional accounting, automation of financial operations and visibility for real-time decision making.

Says Jan Jansen van Vuuren , Sales Director at 4Sight AccTech: “SANAC wanted to strengthen and streamline its financial management, asset management, procurement and human resource management processes, with a particular emphasis on ensuring it can provide timely, accurate information to its stakeholders with less manual effort.

This level of real-time reporting will help give funders the confidence of knowing their funds are being used.
“As a cloud-based solution, Sage Intacct also supports a move to remote working and paperless accounting processes for SANAC. The Council did not need to implement any new technology to access Sage Intacct and we were able to complete 90% of the implementation work remotely. With Sage Intacct, SANAC has moved from fragmented processes, with frequent manual intervention, towards an integrated, real-time environment with a high level of automation.”
