    Reviewed on 03/06/2021

    Pros

    The best thing about Sage 50 is that it is very difficult for anone to make a mess of things. The controls are very tight, ensuring that an ignorant employee cant mess things up.

    Cons

    It is very rigid and stodgy
    Most reports cannot be shown across fiscal years. Little ability to customize reports.

    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.

    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.

    I love Sage 50. I use it daily and would not go to any other program

    Pros

    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

    Bank Reconciliation's are not as simple as they could be, which causes a lot of small business people from doing that important task
