    I found this accounting software to be very useful mainly to small and medium size companies and to a limited extent, to some large companies. It performs all the basic accounting functions relating to accounts receivables and accounts payables, inventory management, cash management and budgeting and compiling and producing financial statements.

    Pros

    1. Sage 50c offers user friendly navigation tools such as the menu bar, the tool bar, system navigation and
    function and shortcut keys.
    2. The software has cloud storage
    3. A user can easily create and setup a new company using the Auto Setup facility
    4. One can also easily create and edit general ledger accounts, inventory categories/items, supplier and
    customer accounts, among others.
    5. A user can easily import/export data from other sources. This saves a lot of time.
    6. The software is integrated with other apps, for example, Microsoft emails and excel

    Cons

    1. Sage 50c requires proper and adequate training. The training is expensive
    2. On average, it is expensive to buy this accounting package.
    3. The integration with other apps (accounting and non-accounting) is still limited.
    4. Sage 50c does not run on some operating systems, for example, windows NT.

    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 easy to learn. They have thorough tutorials available to walk you through the basics.

    Major transactions are grouped together under tabs on the left-hand navigation panel. The various workflows--receivables, payables, inventory and services, employees and payroll, and a 'company' category--are all shown graphically. Each task within a major area is represented as a labeled icon, making it is to start a new transaction from this screen. The 'company' link is a catch-all category, including general journal entries, the chart of accounts and tools for managing your data and accounting tasks.

    Virtually every report that a small business could need is available in Sage 50.

    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.

    A good, robust, accounting package

    Reviewed on 2024/02/23

    Pros

    I like the structured way the system is set up, and that it makes it very easy for seasoned accountants to work with the "nitty-gritty".

    Cons

    I am not sure I would say there is anything I don't like, perhaps the one thing I find a bit complicated is the import function.

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    QuickBooks Online

    Reasons for Switching to Sage 50cloud Accounting

    Seemed like more flexibility for our company to grow with instead of needing to upgrade at certain numbers of users, employees, or items.
