Sage Business Cloud - Cannot Do Business Without It
I love the fact that my clients and I can share the same system in different locations. It also has an app that I can use on the go for invoicing and quotes.
Currently, I don't have any grips with the system.
Awesome Account Software for all your needs
Comments: Sage Business cloud accounting has been a huge relief for my finance department making their records traceable.
The cloud deployment makes it a perfect solution
Adoption of multi factor authentication before users can login
I like that this software is user friendly, affordable and offers a lot of useful applications.
The customer service doesn't always respond as quickly as I would like.
A good all round accounting product, good integration, but pricey as the users increase
Comments: We replaced Sage50 with Sage200, and also Sap B1 was migrated to Sage200, with the help of Sage partners at TN4 this was a relatively pain free migration in all cases, and they all worked well to meet our timescales and requirements, as well as helping us find other partners to integrate Sage200 with other related solutions such as barcode scanning, shipping, and MRP solutions that are not in Sage out of the box.
This software does everything a small, medium or relatively large sized business would need. The backend database is SQL server, so it's fast and well structured, and we found lots of modules and external products integrate well with it.
Implementation and training needed external consultants to do it at scale and at speed. The licence model is per user, so as soon as you start adding quite a few employees the cost of running the software gets rather pricey, though it's comparable to SAP B1 for example. We used our own servers to host the application and database, and although it's called "cloud" it's really not, but perhaps in the future.
Sage Business Cloud Accounting - Does the job and more
Comments: We've been using the software for years now, and it doesn't let us down. When it receives updates, they are quick and painless. Our staff are all used to the software and seem to enjoy using it.
There appears to be a lot of thought that has gone into the layout of all the screens. They are so easy to navigate and we've found that our accounting staff were very easy to train on it, which is a great sign.
Time tracking would be a nice addition to have. It would make the software that much more fuller, and give us more of what we needed.
I really wanted this to work
Comments: Unfortunately my experience was poor. I loved their desktop program and really wanted to love their cloud solution just as much.
I love cloud solutions and the reports from this would have been nice.
I was hit with what seemed like every road block as I tried to switch from my Sage Desktop program into their cloud program. Customer Support was lacking and I ended up joining a Facebook support group of other accountant/bookkeepers making a similar switch. In the end I had to make the decision to let it go or loose my productivity.
Sage is a complete cloud accounting software
Comments: I appreciate the financial reporting we get from the software because of the variety they provide for my institution
They have a great customer support team and they walk us through to fix any issue patiently. I usually use the email and live chat channels.
Though they integrate some third-party software, I wish they could integrate more payment software and CRM software.
A great product
Sage Business Cloud Accounting is very user friendly and has great functions thanks to being in the cloud.
It's a little behind it's competitors to be honest, I'm sure it will catch up though as the desktop software was the best on the market for years.

Sage Business Cloud Accounting review
Comments: Capability to meet the objectives of the finance department while also making the workflow much easier in terms of maximizing efficiency
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.
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.
Awesome Accounting System if you can afford it!
Comments: The overall experience is definitely good and it's worth every penny if one can afford it.
Sage Accounting application improved our efficiency and business processes by much. It's features are integrated and there's no functional flaws at all; we can trust it's reports!
When you have 10+ users, it'll be a bit expensive to maintain Sage. Besides, initially the learning curve to get accustomed to it's features may take some more time for the traditional ERP system users
One of my best investments yet.
Comments: First of all i had no accounting software, no quoting and invoicing software. so this just makes my document presentation just that much more professional looking. also i only have to do the basic, and it does the rest for me.
As a non accounting person, i found this software to be just what the tax man ordered in terms of financial accountability features. it's so easy and and intuitive to use, i was able to get started on the first day and even issued a quote to a client.
well, i had trouble linking my business bank account to the software, but that could be the bank...
a tool to trust if there is budget for it
Comments: very good, all the accounting department can work with it.
the robustness of the software, it does not save locally any file, is connecting to the server for every query.
the price is very high, the company need to be bigger to be able to pay this software, the customer service is not very good in the it section, they are accountants.
Sage could accounting - innovative solution
Comments: Incredible experience, easy to use and helpful to develop the business.
Sage Business Cloud Accounting is an innovative solution based on the sage software that allows to combine the original one with the cloud solution, as future and digital transformations needs.
The software is quite expensive if companies does not needs all features presented.
Easy to use
Comments: I love the fact that the product integrates with other products such as payroll.
I loved the fact that for the most part everything seemed extremely easy to use. I did run into a few issues, but I found the support staff were extremely helpful. I would like to point ou that I am not an accountant by trade and give my books to a qualified accountant at the end of each year. This product served that purpose entirely.
The bank statements duplicated on one of the imports, but to be honest Im not sure if I did something wrong.
Comparable Systems Cost Much, Much More
Built on the Salesforce platform so it can handle any number of users. Sage has initially targeted the small business segment with Live, however it is just as good for mid-market or enterprise. Consider the following features:
Capable of handling 1-1000+ users.
SAAS (hosted and browser-based) so no software to install. No server needed.
Purchase Requisition/Approvals and Workflow
Easy setup but can be configured as complex as you want, it's a very open database if you choose to use it that way
Open API, integrates with many other web-based apps
Well integrated with SalesForce
Tablet and iPhone/Android apps These types of features are typically only available in enterprise level software like Intacct, Acumatica, Financial Force, X3, NetSuite, Oracle or SAP. You won't find this in Quickbooks, Freshbooks, Xero, Sage 50 or any other entry-level system. There's always been Microsoft Dynamics, Sage 100/300/500, Epicor, Infor and others, but those aren't true cloud based/browser based systems, nor are they inexpensive. What's unique about Sage Live is that they've priced it to be affordable for most companies - starts at monthly for 2 users and 1 company. 2 users and 100 companies is only $$$d/month. That is ridiculously less expensive than the other enterprise level systems out there. You can certainly use Sage Live as a small business, but the nice thing is that as you grow you can stay on the same system and not feel the need to change. If you are a mid-sized or large company, you owe it to yourself to take a look at Live before you make a decision on spending lots more money for perhaps the same thing.
It has only been around for 3 years, so it's not as fully developed as some more mature offerings out there. They are adding new stuff all the time but you might find some features missing that you are used to.
Comments: We use sage for accounting. The best thing is we can use sage cloud anywhere in the world. the software reminds us of the payments due for the customers. Then we can call our customers. It's easy to use. It saves time. If your computer will be crash then our all accounts are fully safe in the cloud-based sage. It's easy to use and access. When we need any help then the sage technician will fix the problem within few minutes on the call with remote access.
a few months ago we use the sage on the computer but if there any problem with the computer then our sage data not secure. Some time we lost lots of files as well. but when we subscribe Cloud service it's so much secure and easy. Our all data is fully secure on the sage cloud. The best thing is we can access anywhere in the world.
Nothing, when we need any help the sage technicians help me.
SAGE BUSINESS CLOUD ACCOUNTING
Comments: Definitely the way for the future just love to work on this platform. All new clients advised to use Sage Business Cloud Accounting. The package can grow with the company from start up.
The fact that is cloud base and accessible from anywhere as long as you have internet access. There are apps available to download onto mobile devices. The product is user friendly with guidance on how to use features. Download bank statements and map the expenses to save lots of time in the future.
It is sometimes slow depending on internet speed and take a while to download bank statements.
Easy to use good quality product
It is very easy to use and offers a lot of features.
Sometimes we encounter errors while working on the program and have to log in again.
Nightmare that should have ended!
Comments: You do not get what you pay for....best have a computer guy on hand!
not much...maybe you don't have to wait as long as you do with telus for them to answer
We have used sage since it was called simply accounting. I attended courses and have always managed to keep the system going. We started having this problem about 7 years ago.. Unable to email invoices. Customers get frustrated and several people messaging the company to let us know our system has a flaw. We have had several several hours on the phone with sage trying to get this corrected! No luck
Comments: The cloud based accounting solution offers a truly "connected" experience for the end user. Whether you are a salesperson travelling amd entering orders online or a Financial director viewing information while you are sitting in an airport lounge. I believe Sage accounting solutions can truly offer value for money.
From a customization point of view I think Sage 300 ranks pretty high. Most lager ERP solutions offers a square to plug a round hole.
Searching through all the modules for an Invoice and following the flow from AP to GL for example is quite cumbersome. I have had a more positive experience with other ERP solutions as a end user.
We've used SageOne Accounting (and it's predecessor) for many years - love it!
We find it does what it says it does. It's very flexible, not only because of Cloud access, but in terms of products, sales invoicing and reporting. The addition of integration of PayRoll has saved us both time and money.
To be honest, Iuse it without fuss. I'd prefer the Other Payments option to be in the 'Purchasing' section rather than the 'Banking' section and maybe a 'custom' layout option for Invoices - not fields, but presentation. That's all.

Best cloud based accounting software
Comments: Easy platform for non book keepers to keep a finger on the pulse of their financials
That you can have full access to all financial detail of your business wherever you are
Maybe allow a link through for document storage to keep down the user space needed. For instance if I upload my slips and document to Sage I’d quickly use up my allocated space, if it could link through to my dropbox where I get far more space
