ICAT integrates with QuickBooks
QuickBooks-based systems are affordable, reliable, and the standard across multiple industries. Unfortunately, if a growing business wants to compete for and manage government contracts, QuickBooks lacks key features that are essential for their success.

ICAT seamlessly integrates with QuickBooks to deliver these essential capabilities required by the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulation), helping small and mid-sized businesses achieve DCAA compliance.
ICAT is Fully Customizable
for Every Cost Pool Structure
Whether you need a custom or standard solution, ICAT has you covered. ICAT offers full flexibility to configure your Indirect Rate Model to suit your unique contract arrangement. What's more, all versions of ICAT come with built-in templates for a variety of common cost pool structures.
