- Sage 50 was able to support the reporting requirements for a seven location company with eight departments in each - saving the customer bundles from having to treat each as a separate company file and merge them with the consolidations figure. It was estimated to save accountants in each location a full day's work per month.
- I have actually won several clients due to the ability to support their unique financial reporting style desires, and I couldn't have done that with any other accounting software that I know of. Sage 50 let's you pretty much build a report from scratch.
