Sage Business Cloud Accounting

The program is appropriate for use in all business types - especially if the business has many different branches located in different parts of the country/world. The fact that invoicing can be done from a mobile device by use of the friendly Sage One app also makes it easy to quickly conclude a sales transaction by issuing an invoice at the client office - shortens time, leaving more time for business.

SAP ERP

In the on-premise world of things, it ruled the world. The ease with which it can be customized and the language support it provides is simply amazing. Their landscape and transport management is brilliant. It saves millions of dollars for huge enterprises. I only wish that their support model can be enhanced further.

Pros

Sage Business Cloud Accounting

  • The ability to log in to your accounting data anywhere you have internet. No sending backups to your accountant, no more trying to recover lost data, or having to log in to a server. This cloud hosted solution gives you a lot more freedom and flexibility as I can log in to it from any computer, or mobile device.
  • The ability to send professional invoices or quotes to my customers while still at their location. Also the ability to easily track my receivables and stay on top of them as they are always right at my fingertips.
  • Project tracking is a great feature. With this module you can send tasks associated with a project to your team without giving them access to your financial information. They can report to you where they are at on the project to help you stay on track. You can track the revenue and expenses associated with this project to make sure you are making a profit.
  • Bank integration brings in all the transactions and easily lets you allocate to the appropriate revenue and expense account or match to sales invoices or purchase invoices saving you time in data entry.
  • Sage One integrates with Sage Payment solutions or Paypal. By giving your customers more options to pay helping you stay on top of your receivables.
  • I love how it imports into the Sage 50 Accounting software for those customers who still need the features and functionality of the desktop software.
  • Just released the integration between Sage 50 and Sage One just got easier. The previous versions of Sage One and Sage 50 had the ability to download customer transactions from Sage One including invoicing, other income, bills, expenses, bank transfers and general journal entries to your Sage 50 accounting software.
  • With the latest update for Sage 50 you can now automatically upload and map your Sage 50 customer records, vendors, accounts, inventory items, and tax codes to Sage One for a quick, easy setup and perfect record match every time. This makes things so much easier when setting up new customers in Sage One
  • Now that important client information flows both ways, you can set up a new client in Sage One in minutes by accessing your Sage One connection wizard (under “file tab” in Sage 50 Accountants Edition) For the customers, vendors and accounts and products and services.
  • The other information such as Sales invoices and other income, Bills and other expenses, Bank Transfers, general journal entries flow from Sage One to Sage 50.

SAP ERP

  • Organizational resource management and integration of different departments with each other as a software automation
  • We have Access to all insights and analytics data from anywhere
  • It doesn't matter how big your organization is, it supports everything from small companies to giant high-tech organizations, and they all have access to data at very high speeds.
  • If you use the web and cloud version, the initial costs will be greatly reduced and even a small start-up small company can enjoy the benefits of SAP ERP.

Cons

Sage Business Cloud Accounting

  • Everything is long winded, no fast key options
  • Basic options not available, you can not change payment terms for debtors or creditors only option is 30 days and statements do not break it down into pay periods
  • editing anything whether reconciled or not is painful
  • When data was carried over from Sage 50 accounts it was the basic info, all 490 customers accounts needed individually opening and statement preferences confirming, payment terms agreeing etc etc - no quick way to do all at once
  • Some nom codes have changed and some you are no longer able to use in Bank accounts purchases / sales etc. Some no-longer exist. this makes management accounts using the profit and lose data a nightmare
  • no favourites options for debtor / creditors lists and reports as there is only 1 option for all

SAP ERP

  • SAP sometimes gets slow whenever most of the people in the company simultaneously use it
  • Hopefully they would extend background job processing to all tables in SAP since it sometimes goes time out whenever extracting large historical data (ex. 5 years expense data)

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

There's nothing mechanically wrong with Sage, and it serves our intended purpose. Again, we don't really use Sage to its fullest potential, but for what it does for us, there are few complaints other than the darn fixed assets module

SAP ERP is highly efficient with handling both large and complex organizations and it has the ability to handle different departments within the company and the data security is fool proof. It also automatically enables the data to be available between different modules such as SD and MM or HCM or IM and QM so users do not have to use multiple applications to run their everyday business.

Well, I've had several scenarios where it was evident that they simply buy time. At the same time, their Product Support and Implementation teams are most likely not in sync. What's said by a member of implementation may not hold good when you refer the same thing with a member of the support team.

I find the online training was very informative and they answered all my questions. I am also certified in Sage One and provided online training in the program which I have set up several people on and they love how it keeps them organized.

Alternatives Considered

Sage Business Cloud Accounting

I have used Wave Accounting, and while it is an excellent cloud accounting software, it doesn't allow us to work collaboratively with our customers. They both allow me to sign in and work with our clients books within the program, but Wave doesn't integrate into Sage 50 which is a must for clients that I know want to continue to grow.

SAP is totally integrated as are many of its greatest competitors, but the level of detail in the integration between modules puts SAP heads and shoulders above all others. Granted, the SAP implementation can be much more difficult to perform, but in the long run, the amount of effort you put in will result in excellent usability. After using Oracle's E-Business Suite for over 20 years, we did a due diligence search that lasted over 18 months before making a decision to go with SAP. This was a result of our Oracle system being made "un-upgradeable" due to a custom module that Oracle Consulting actually built for us. We were stuck in an old version of their database that would not work upon patching to the next version.

Return on Investment

Sage Business Cloud Accounting

  • Ability to add-on: Positive ROI can be achieved by building you own customized solution by adding on partner apps. Such apps extend the functionality of the product to accommodate certain business requirements.
  • Product is slower than competitors: Negative ROI as product seems to be comparatively slower than competitors when holding other variables constant (ie. browser version, Internet connection speed, etc.) In a busy accounting cycle, this can have a substantial impact. Also, back buttons don't allow for retaining same screen input data.
  • Reports functionality strong: Positive ROI due to ability to view data in many dimensions/formats.
  • Ability to connect financial accounts: Positive ROI as data from financial accounts automatically brought into the accounts where it can approved for posting, thus eliminating manual entry.

SAP ERP

  • SAP has helped in transparency across different business unit and single financial view of the company that previously did not exist.
  • The cost of supporting the solution is slightly higher than the previous ERP and the consulting solutions cost more.
  • Overall SAP has brought in positive ROI and uniform business practices across the organization
