Review of Sage One

We really liked how simple Sage have made this software, they must have used different developers than the Sage 50 developers! We also liked the VAT handling, top marks for that.

Pros

Sage One is extremely basic and fairly straight forward to use. The software is a no frills solution and is stripped down to bare bones. For instance, there are no nominal codes and no transactions list (audit trail) etc. The terminology is also very user friendly so that non-professionals and users without bookkeeping experience can understand it better. The website has a mediocre design but the design of the accounting software itself was actually very good, better than the website’s design, which is unusual! Speed: The speed of the actual accounting software is fast but entering transactions is not. For example, entering cash book (banking) transactions has three steps which seemed a bit overkill in our opinion. Also the places for entering sales receipts, purchase payments and bank transfers were spread out throughout the software which meant that it coule be time consuming if you have a mixture of transactions to enter.

Cons

We did not like how entering different types of transactions required the user to access multiple sections of the accounting software.

Sage Payroll

I like sage payroll compared to other providers for the prices they offer and the customer service that is available.

Pros

Sage payroll is easy to use and is cost effective. Sage charges very reasonable prices to run payroll and to direct deposit payroll checks.

Cons

I do not like that it takes up to 7 days to clear a pre-note when authorizing a new bank account. It is inconvenient to check manual checks while a pre-note is processing

Good luck if you're expecting world class support from a world class service provider.

After years of being a loyal customer I am saying goodbye.

Pros

The program can still be learned or a course the price of a arm and a leg can be taken and you will be able to work it after a while in part.

Cons

Please do not expect telephone support because pastel has a high call volume and year end the whole year through. Email support is a guide that is sent to sort you out and 80% misses the plot completely. Do not overpay your account even once, because each month you will have to throw a tantrum and send an email to all their departments to get out of arrears for overpaying them.
