Accounting For The Small Business

5.0 4 months ago

Pros:

Easy to use, intuitive and with great reporting tools that allow me to keep on top of my business performance. Invoicing to clients, profit and loss reports, VAT returns, keep up to date on cash flow and knowing how my business is performing every day

Cons:

I want to be able to compare this YTD performance with LYTD performance and that isn't possible to do

Sage Business Cloud Accounting review

4.0 3 years ago

Comments: Capability to meet the objectives of the finance department while also making the workflow much easier in terms of maximizing efficiency

Pros:

The installation and implementation procedures are straightforward. I like how easy the features are to use, even for non-accountants. It enables clients and colleagues to share files in real-time, saving time and eliminating the need to send invoices via email. This streamlines and lowers the cost of debtor management. When one is on the go, having access via a mobile device is extremely useful. The software is also reasonably priced, and it includes a free trial period. Sage's customer service is excellent.

Cons:

One suggestion is that when adding a new Item from the Invoice screen, the new Item screen includes all features (such as selecting the Purchase account). You must currently exit the Invoice, create a new Item, and then return to the Invoice.

I love Sage Software for all my accounting needs.

5.0 last month New

Comments: I am very happy with the software. The reports I generate are next level.

Pros:

I have been using the software for 9 years and it becomes second nature to me. It is precise and easy.

Cons:

Perhaps the steps I need to take to reverse a check, but it is not that big of an issue.

The sales department will upsell you on features you do not need

2.0 2 months ago New

Comments: The customer service is terrible. They do not return your call. They also tell untruths. I called them out on it and told them I was a CPA so to "save" their fibs.

Pros:

It's good, but no better than the other softwares on the market. They all do essentially the same.

Cons:

The price. They upsell you on features you do not need.

Sage for Small Companies

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Big thumbs up in all. I love using your product in the main.

Pros:

Ease of use. Speeds up reporting. I have worked in a large organisations previously and this software generates the reports I was used to seeing as standard. They are standard in my chosen package. You can call up latest bank detail automatically from your bank. Monthly payment option to use the software. Instant access even when you are out of the office, via the app, for viewing status of invoices.

Cons:

Cost increase every year without option to debate it. I do not need anything more than I have been using in the original package. I only use this software for convenience and could do all the work manually. The bank feed has failed a few times. Support has always sorted for me but it is always inconvenient to have to trouble shoot and takes time to sort.
