Works best if you are utilizing all the job features

2018-04-04

The reports can be exported into Excel for further analytics and review.

Pros

Create PO, Apply to invoice, Inventory, Pay bill. Create your job quote, assign job, bill job, view job costing.

Cons

Using only certain features is difficult, as the steps in between may be missing to view full reports. It's also pretty ugly and kind of clunky, but it works and does the job.

It keeps us extremely organized and our data is easy to sort and analyze.

Pros

It has a lot of features that prevent double entries and create an audit trail.

Cons

Otherwise the reporting is excellent and the exporting to Excel and pdfs is more than enough.

Great product that serves basic accounting functions

2016-09-01

Pros

Within those 20 different departments, we were also able to track 7 different expense categories (not accounts, groups of accounts).

Cons

In addition to account number, department, and expense category, we were hoping to track school projects, use tax, physicals expenses, location.

Recommendations to others considering Sage 50cloud

If you a looking for a straight forward accounting software for a small to mid sized business, this is a great option. It was always a reliable product and served our growing organization for 10+ years. It is also a very affordable option considering all you get for the price.

Not user friendly

2021-06-21

I wouldn't recommend it, especially for companies with many years worth of data.

Pros

We do like that it makes vendor and contractor management easy.

Cons

There are many reports to pull but you have to know exactly which boxes to select and missing one can throw off the entire report.

Decent accounting software for small business

2018-10-27

It is good software

We use Sage for all our accounting record keeping and payroll and find it very accurate and reliable

2018-01-23

We have accurate accounting records that are easily sent to our public accountant for year end processing.

Pros

We like that the reports are robust and exportable to excel, and the payroll module makes completing each run easy and year end a snap.

Cons

We get asked to backup the data upon sign in and sign out, this can be cumbersome, but also a terrific reminder to safeguard our data.

We've used this software for over 20 years. We have not outgrown it even though our business has grown.

Pros

If you're only looking for an accounting software this software fits the ticket.

Cons

It isn't useful if you're a service organization - you cannot track time, and expenses.
