Sage 50. Quite complicated

2018-08-01

Apparently to complicated compair to xero. Will be using both for a while will let you know which is the better one.

Pros

Using it for over 10 years now but changing over to xero now which will save me a lot of time. .

Cons

With every sage update they change things around ie buttons are now at the top left side instead of at the bottom

Used to be the standard for small business in Canada, but no longer.

2017-06-09

I have recently discovered Xero and moved my accounting practice to this software.

Pros

Sage 50 was the accounting program I used to recommend to all my small business clients. Stable program that has most of the simple functions needed for most small businesses. Most used small business accounting software among my clients and almost all bookkeepers in our area use and have experience working solely with Sage 50.

Cons

It's not the most user-friendly program and has a reputation of being difficult for non-bookkeepers and bookkeepers alike to use properly. Sage has been slow to make it more user-friendly and were behind in moving to cloud options. Personal experience is Sage support is very slow to respond to queries.
