Likelihood to Recommend

Sage One 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.

Pros

  • Connections to online financial accounts: Allows for real time updates of account balances.
  • Cloud access: Use anytime anywhere without the upkeep necessary when hosting the software on one's own servers.
  • Robust reporting: Excellent for viewing a business's metrics and performance in many different dimensions.

Cons

  • Time tracking: Functionality not present, so this would present a disadvantage in industries where billing requires this (ie. law, accounting firms, etc.)
  • Interface could be improved: It doesn't have as user friendly an interface and navigation as competitors in the same category. It is somewhat dated in this regard.
  • Inventory functionality could be more robust: Competitors have created stronger features in this area.
  • Report customization options: Not as strong as competitors.

Usability

Sage One Accounting9.1
Based on 1 answer
I love the convenience of Sage One as I can access it anywhere I have internet. I also love how user friendly it is, my customers who do not have any kind of accounting or bookkeeping background are able to quickly learn systems and procedures that I help set up for them to stay on top of their finances to work towards having a successful business. It has so many features to help make things easy for you to keep track of your finances allowing you more time to work on your business.

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

Although I've used a number of other accounting systems, Sage is really comparable to Xero and QuickBooks Online, as it is competing in the same basic accounting software category. Sage One Accounting has been selected in certain client situations where they were already using a product in the Sage family and wanted to continue with the same vendor. In a pure agnostic comparison, however, QuickBooks Online offers much better functionality at a similar price category. Intuit/QuickBooks Online is far more advanced in the cloud computing paradigm by creating and promoting a stronger app ecosystem, so as this app environment becomes stronger, more products will be designed to work with the QuickBooks Online API, thus enabling one to create a much stronger overall accounting solution. However, if one's needs are basic, Sage One is adequate and can do the job in many situations.
