How to unify multi-entity organizations with Sage Intacct

It's a good time to be running a business and it’s not uncommon for small- and medium-sized companies to expand into multi-entity enterprises in the span of a few years. On top of that, a recent report from Small Business Trends found that 72% of small businesses plan to go global in 2017.
