Pros

FreshBooks combined with other applications is a great tool. In any case, if you want to create invoices and send it in a split second and then track and monitor its progress, I recommend FreshBooks.

Sage50 is a widely used product for a good reason. Sage is very user friendly and combines many of the necessary items for businesses.

Chad H.

Overall, a good piece of software and it still does exactly what you need it to do.

Cons

We would lose all of that if we switched, so unfortunately we are stuck with having to use this horrible new format.

Steve H.

It is really frustrating to have a client not be able to pay through the invoice, and for this reason, only, I have been considering a new software company.

Jeff B.

Tier based pricing from Lite to Premier is a bit confusing. WePay advocates having a Chase bank account for faster processing otherwise fails to integrate.

KM

Cons

Difficult to find problem relating to prior year. Lack of Efficiency while entering Journal Entry.

MM

Mirza Muhammad I.

But as you begin to actually understand accounting and your bookkeeping goes on and on you discover some very frightening things about Quickbooks.

We are also constrained by the # of fields within the payroll module--as far as the category in which the employee worked. We also lament the lack of integration with our bank, microsoft programs etc.

Good SMB accounting software

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great basic accounting software

Pros

Sage 50 is great for startups and SMBs looking to upgrade from quickbooks or freshbooks. The reporting functionality is a little obtuse, but it's much more powerful than what's available through other low cost solutions.

Cons

The software feels outdated and has a couple of small, annoying bugs. For example, if you connect to Sage via wifi and then ethernet, sometimes it will count that as two users logging in.
