Sage Accounting Pricing Reviews

Pros
  • It is easy to learn to use it at the basic level.
  • This is an useful product for accounting purpose. It is very easy and convenient to use . Its affordable too.
  • It's affordable for small and medium business owner It's Flexible to set up and configure It's User Friendly
  • Easy to use and connection to bank account details. It's really good to see directly the updates and it works perfect
Cons
  • The software doesn;t lag at all. It has nothing which I do not lile . The team can surely work on to add more features.
  • Can't email the invoices to a special email address that they will be in the system so it take a longer time to upload the cost
  • It's not easy to customise. Users are stucked to the way software forms look and feel instead of customising it the way they wanted It still requires extra add on
  • In terms of value, it competes unfavorably with Quickbooks and Xero and lacks functionality eg being able to amend entries and journals. Overall it not at the cutting edge

Very slow system when items is above a 1000. We are on 100meg lines and Sage Accounting is terrible.

It's just a basic accounting software.The software is easy to use. But it it can be 10 times better if the right coders and designers is employed. Price, it is not the cheapest in the market but again African companies like their money and labour is expensive in South Africa. The system is slow as said when when you have more than a 1000 entries or stock items. Export function lacks functionality as only basic stuff can be exported. Compared to other software in the world....There is much better software in the market!

Plenty of useful features for a self-employed professional, such as Billing & Invoicing, Bank Reconciliation and Expense Tracking.I used to use Sage One because it offers all the functions I need as a self-employed professional, but the price kept creeping up (it's between 14 and 54 euros a month where I'm from), so I decided to switch to QuickBooks. It includes plenty of useful features, such as Billing & Invoicing, Bank Reconciliation and Expense Tracking, but QuickBooks offers pretty much the same with a more attractive UI and at a better price point.

basic accounting tool, difficult in usage and missing important features. This could be a suitable solution for small businesses that need basic income- and expense-tracking, but also want some advanced features. The tool is cheap, however accounting software shouldn't be a tool to save money on. It's all about the user-friendliness, quality and features.

A very simple online accounting system

The ability to connect my bank accounts is great and a real time saver.The fact that this is online and can be accessed from any device is a real pleasure. It means as a sole trader that I can enter receipts while I'm on the go or at home when I have a spare few minutes. I know sage was late to the party for online accounting systems but they have managed to make a simple system and one that starts cheaper than the competitors. The second main feature for me was the ability to automatically connect to my bank accounts and match my transactions as this saves no end of time and is all included in the monthly price. They also have a feature which allows you download your transaction in a CSV file as well, if you wanted to move them to another system.

Ease of use. I have basic accounting training but, by using the help pages, I have managed to run my business without the expense of accountants. VAT returns are just a press of a button and all information is easily found if needed. The package has grown ( at no extra cost) and the stock control and invoicing side has much improved.

This Pastel My Business Online is definitely the best user friendly most cost effective comprehensive online package for nearly all Small Businesses or individuals anywhere. Even includes 'Fixed Assets Register" apart from 'Income Statement' or 'Assets and Liabilities' Balance Sheet, Customers Statements and Supplier with inventory controls ! It is virtually instant, and reports so professionally that I have even moved many of my clients from conventional stand-alone packages to this online version with excellent satisfaction and maximum cost saving, with hassle free IT and no backup requirement - simply logon to the internet. Africa has improved low cost broadband where even rural entities and individuals, no longer only those in Metropolitan areas can now quickly set themselves up and "talk the same language" as their bank managers.

Sage software has grown from Peachtree to a more complete accounting system. Unlike the leading Quickbooks program, Sage is a real double entry accounting system. Sage One is limited and you have to do some work arounds that the full product does not have, but for the cost, it is great. The Full packages are preferrable. I have had extensive experience installing accounting software for clients over many years, so I know something about what works. I have also taught accounting at the university level. Sage gets my recommendation.
