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

    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.

    My prefered accounting software

    Reviewed 6 months ago
    Pros

    The best thing about Sage 50 is that it is very difficult for anone to make a mess of things. The controls are very tight, ensuring that an ignorant employee cant mess things up.

    Cons

    It is very rigid and stodgy Most reports cannot be shown across fiscal years. Little ability to customize reports.

    Tried and tested product with 1 foot in the cloud

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Used for 15+ years with minimal issues. Support were always great when needed. We 'outgrew' it not in terms of number of users or quantity of data but the ability to join up more business processes and to work in a more modern cloud-based way

    Pros

    Accountants are very familiar with this - almost an industry standard. Core accountancy functions are strong

    Cons

    Some aspects are hard for non-accountants to understand the terminology. Cloud implementation is only partial, Its a dektop product with uploads and synchronisation to other computers via cloud. We suffered several disconnects and issues that needed the remote stations to be re synced losing work. Some of the more peripheral aspects (Sales orders, purchase orders, stock management) had some limitations and there were several places where it was easy to accidentally mark every quote in the system as won if you did not have anything selected. No link to cloud payroll from sage - needed the much more expensive desktop software or manually enter payroll data into Line 50 every month

    Good...But A Little Expensive

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    I use the Canadian version of the software. I suspect it's basically the same as the American version, except for sales tax and payroll, but I would check a review of that version for any American users.

    Pros

    Sage 50 is an easy-to-use piece of accounting software aimed at SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), and it is one of QuickBooks' major competitors. It's fairly easy to find people who are familiar with Sage 50. That's a plus for small businesses looking to find an employee or outside service provider to take care of their books. If you are looking to do the books yourself, Sage 50 is relatively...

    Cons

    I found Sage 50 to be glitchy in the past. I have spent too many hours on hold or on a call with their tech support. I use the payroll-included version of Sage 50. I also have a support package. In all, that's not competitively priced. If it weren't for the fact that some clients have been using this software for years and are reimbursing me for the cost of the software, I would not be using it. QuickBooks is a better value.

    Sage 50 Review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Sage has always been helpful through online or phone calls whenever you need them. Find the right consultant for you, and you experience improves.

    Pros

    There is alot of things that are already set up for you to just hit the ground running and a lot of items integrated into the system to help small businesses that need a solution but no time to customize a whole system.

    Cons

    Sage 50 allows for minimal customization from their out of the box set up software. This plays as an advantage, but does not allow you to get the information you want in the view you want.
