Pros/Cons
  • Pros

  • I really enjoy the ease of use of the software and the communication with the team members, specifically [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN.
  • I know that there is a TEAM supporting me, while I still know the name of my main contact person. The platform is easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.
  • Cons

  • Not all of my business accounts can be connected via feed (ie intuit payroll), which requires a drag and drop upload each month.
  • When I confirm those purchases it is usually 30+ transactions and at that point I don't even remember all of them so it takes a while for me to locate receipts. I really dislike that too.
  • Pros

  • The ability to use Sage for small business as far as daily accounting, accounts payable and receivable is vey good. It offers a lot of other useful applications if you wish to grow.
  • The ease in use of the program is a major factor for small business people who are not financially savvy. They can use the program without a huge learning curve.
  • Cons

  • The software is quite difficult to use, training online is confusing, and a newbie would struggle in places.
  • Horrible customer service. To support that statement: I've been on hold for 1 hour 43 minutes and I'm still on hold.
