Definitely useful for self-employed professionals, but there are more attractive options for the pri

2018-03-12

Plenty of useful features for a self-employed professional, such as Billing & Invoicing, Bank Reconciliation and Expense Tracking.

Pros

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.

Cons

I felt that if I ever clicked by mistake they'd start invoicing me right away, since they already had my account number.

Paul Southernwood

A solid accounts package. Many useful features allowing simple accounting for small businesses.

2018-01-30

Pros

Sage One can be tied to your bank accounts so that all items that pass through your accounts can be automatically uploaded into sage saving lots of time on entering data.

Cons

The only method of backing up the information is to print reports of all ledgers, invoices, receipts and audit trail. This means you will always have the information but in the event of a catastrophic failure it would be highly time consuming to re-input all the details.

It's simply among the best accounting management software I've ever used.

2018-04-25

Pros

Its ability to send real time accounting documents through its automated processes saves the company or organisation a lot of time.

Cons

They charge the most essential aspect of it which is the ability to use multi-currency.

Possibly the best accounting software we've ever used

2017-11-09

Using Sage One allowed us to combine our Accounts and Payroll systems into one.

Pros

A very clear interface provides an overview of your current situation and makes it easy for you to do your everyday tasks like entering and raising invoices, or checking who owes you money.

Cons

Consequently, some clients weren't receiving their emails.

Brilliant, easy accounting package

2018-01-30

Time saving as entering invoices etc is so much easier.

Pros

Very easy to use, esp after the old sage programmes.

Cons

Groups of nominal code numbers could automatically be assigned their relevant accounts area, ie all 5000 codes are all direct expenses as this could easily be messed up by someone who didn't understand accounts

The best billing tool

2017-11-16

With this tool, I can do billing in a simple way

Pros

By using the API, you can connect your own software with the aplication.

Cons

Although it is a very complete software there are quite things you can't do with it, like assign a payment to multiple suppliers.

We've used SageOne Accounting (and it's predecessor) for many years - love it!

2018-02-02

Pros

It's very flexible, not only because of Cloud access, but in terms of products, sales invoicing and reporting.

Cons

I'd prefer the Other Payments option to be in the 'Purchasing' section rather than the 'Banking' section and maybe a 'custom' layout option for Invoices - not fields, but presentation.

The Best Accounting Software For Non-Accountants

2017-02-23

That it doesn't have a mobile app is an absolute travesty but that none of it's competitors with the same feature set do either means I'm sticking with it for now.

Pros

Missing features are mostly filled with third party integrations.

Cons

No mobile app. Super annoying when trying to get info or input anything on the go.

Sage has made a big improvement on managing our accounts

2018-02-05

Improved recording of accounts and better organisation of data.

Pros

As a small business this has helped us to manage our both payroll and accounts. The initial motivator to look at online packages was for auto-enrolment.

Cons

Once done though it's easy to find again.

Basic accounting software for small business

2018-01-27

Pros

Portability of the data is great too, whether you want to take your data to Excel and manipulate or move it to another software....at least you're not locked in. Mobile app is necessary, but the capability is lacking.

Cons

As a cloud-based system, if you're without internet you're out of luck. The mobile app also needs a lot of work with only a few functions available compared to the desktop version.

Great customer service powerful product. undoing mistakes / and editing can be counter intuative

2018-02-02

Despite its steep learning curve and being a bit of a faff on to set up - this saves me hours ever single week now that the system is fully implemented.

Pros

The ability to see finances on one dashboard and report producing capabilities.

Cons

I would improve this by making articles based on particular scenrios ie - 'You have invoiced a customer but now they have cancelled the order - Heres what to do' - 'You have returned part of a supplier order for a partial refund - here is what to do' etc
