For a small organization or one with very simple finances, this is probably too complex and robust. For midsize or larger I think it works very well.

Pros

I know the finance people I have worked with LOVE Sage 50. I only use it on occasion, normally under their watchful eye. I find it easy to use to do the very simple tasks I need to accomplish- print something or find a historical record. For a finance ultra-novice like me, it works great.

Cons

If you know nothing about finance, this isn't the program for you. Effective use of the program assumes you have a rudimentary understanding of basic financial skills and principles.

I like the features and the capabilities. Sage 50 can do so much if you can figure out how to use it.

Cons

When I need help the most...its just not there. I can call support and be on hold for over an hour to not get a solution. Chat support only links me to articles in the knowledge base...that still don't always solve my problem. All we want is a person to help and hear the problems we are having and GENUINELY want to help. All we get is someone reading a script and not listening and answering DIRECT questions. Its so frustrating to not be heard.

Find another program from any other company. The renewal rates are astronomical and ther is no customer service at all.

No customer service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!spent a lot of money on this program. Each year the cost multiply and you get nothing more than ignored!

All in all, a much better product than I have used at other companies. Would recommend Sage 50 to friends and family.

Pros

Very user friendly and dependable. Was able to transfer 3 entities using an updated chart of accounts. Have saved hours every month with the assistance of their bank reconciliation set up. Month end closing has been accelerated.

Cons

Report function seems weak. Not able to create the desired reports with ease. Have not used customer support but a few times and have found quite a long wait.

This a less expensive way to get a decent bookkeeping software for your small company.

Pros

This program is a good software for a small business. It is not as intuitive as Quickbooks, but you can maneuver around the product. It meets the basic financial needs of a small business.

Cons

The software will not grow with your company. IF your company grows, you will need to switch to a more powerful software offering more flexibility in custom and stock reports.

It is reliable and does a good job. Easy to switch between multiple companies and transaction download function is great for audit trails etc.

Cons

the only negative point for me is when you drill down to a nominal code, you cant double click and drill into the actual posting for example if it is a multiple NL code jnl then you can only see the whole posting via all transactions route. this has been the case for years, I am not sure why they dont resolve it.

We've used this software for over 20 years. We have not outgrown it even though our business has grown.

Pros

Very user friendly. If you're only looking for an accounting software this software fits the ticket. It does all financials tasks - accounts receivable, payables, general ledger, payroll, inventory etc.

Cons

It isn't useful if you're a service organization - you cannot track time, and expenses. All invoices are imported into this software from FileMaker.

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.

At the end of the current fiscal year we will have a serious look at purchasing a different book keeping package from another company

Pros

We use Sage 50 Premium. the software itself is quite simple to use and the explanations in the help function are good. There are a few bugs in the program that can create entries that cannot be corrected or deleted.

Cons

Without purchasing a support package there is no support what so ever. Even when I called to report the bug mentioned above the support personnel would only refer me to the sales office to buy a support package.

Pros

Using it for over 10 years now but changing over to xero now which will save me a lot of time. . Now it’s easy to change journal entries when a mistake happens. I like the listing of both customers and suppliers.

Cons

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

Love this product. My favorite.

Pros

Being able to change items past and easy function for doing so. Very easy to setup g/l. I like being able to modify reports at ease. Would highly recommend this product. Bank reconciliation is also a breeze.

Cons

Very little would I change maybe making the product cheaper. When you enter timesheets and have a change after you have updated - you cannot just delete the line from weekly timesheets you have to go to the list and select line and delete. Doing it on the weekly timesheet entry leaves zeros if you just delete the line.

I'd recommend strictly for small and medium businesses

Pros

It is easy to install, can handle inventory quite well, you can upload budgets and benchmark with actual sales or expenditure, can generate good reports.

Cons

Not a very intuitive accounting package and some features like bank reconciliation need to be improved on. Also, you seem to lose some features after upgrades that come at a heavy cost.

Its just easy to use. The screens are great. The 'note' under journal entries ( "this will decrease/increase the balance") means I don't have to be a CPA to get it right. I could not get reports "before depreciation" and "after depreciation" but I hardly ever need this. I can't rate their support because I have only needed help twice in 22 years. Once was a question about vendor balances and once was advice about backing up before I switched computers. Mind you, that was when it was Peachtree Accounting. I have looked at Sage's expanded products recently and their current support seems to be a bit fragmented.

Pros

It is super easy and intuitive to use. Even in 1996 they had this incredible feature where you could select an entry on a report, change it, and the report immediately regenerates with the change. The reports are just what I have needed.

Cons

There is one piece of functionality that QuickBooks has that Sage 50 does not. That is "sub-accounts" or "classes". In other words if you want to allocate part of your GL to a department or area in your organization, the only way to do it is using "jobs". Jobs are basically a reporting function based on a job id. I have rarely needed this anyway and refuse to switch because everything else is so great.

The software is pretty self explanatory meaning I don't believe new users would require additional training in order to use the product. I think if they would develop a better adjustment scenario (ie. Journal Entry adjustments) I think this product would rate up there with QuickBooks. This product is definitely worth the look!

Pros

The customer service at Sage is extremely helpful! I have had to call multiple times, and each and every time they patiently help me through my problem. I think it's great if you have a small to medium sized manufacturing business and want something to keep track of everything.

Cons

Comparing the software to QuickBooks, I think there is a lack of efficiency in entering Journal Entries especially when you happen to find a problem that originated in a prior year. Other than that, I think the software is great for recording daily transactions and keeping track of inventory (for small to medium businesses).

I do not see any pros. It was OK product, but after dealing with their customer service, I am not able to see any pros in Sage products.

Cons

Horrible experience - they charged us for the renewal that we didn't want and even though the renewal date was 7 days ahead from the moment I contacted them, they refused to return our funds. Moreover, they were rude and they kept cutting the call and transferring me to other people who wouldn't even introduce themselves, so I cannot give you any names. I spoke with their customer service, sales, then back to customer service and so on. Finally somebody gave me the number to the refund department (it grew out of nowhere or something after 5 days of my calls) and the person on the phone informed me right away that the refund is not happening (without even asking my account number or order ID), because "that's the policy of Sage". The worst customer service I have even dealt with. They got my money, but I hope they will lose the money from other potential customers who'll read this review. The product won't keep the customers long term, so they try to get as much money as possible, even if it means deliberately not disclosing the policies that are being followed by the company. Shameful practices and poor product.

Excellent inventory tracking.

Pros

This software is great for small businesses like ours who have a huge inventory list (8,000 plus items), and customer support gives quality service.

Cons

This software makes you close out each month before the system date will change to the current month. This takes some time to do that monthly (and seems unnecessary to me) but time spent can be kept in check if you keep your records up to date and balance daily/weekly. Payroll is less user friendly than Quickbooks and updates are harder to apply.

Pros

The functionality available is very good, and the reporting capabilities are very good if you know how to use them.

Cons

The reporting side of Sage 50 requires a lot of knowledge which is not easily transferable. Also does not work on a Mac.

It does what we need it to do - track expenses and invoices. However, it's not user friendly - had our accountant not be persistent on us using Sage, we might have gone with another product.

Pros

It's a very robust software; when it comes to managing finances, it covers a lot of the areas I need.

Cons

Definitely not visually appealing or extremely user-friendly. It takes some time to understand where everything is located and the steps to take to properly input information.

The need to continually having to upgrade this software every few years can make it expensive. over the long run.

It keeps us extremely organized and our data is easy to sort and analyze.

Pros

It is extremely user friendly. It has a lot of features that prevent double entries and create an audit trail.

Cons

There are a few screens that I would like to print that do not offer that feature. Otherwise the reporting is excellent and the exporting to Excel and pdfs is more than enough.
