With the latest release of Sage 50 2015 Accounting, come several added benefits.

Out of the gate, there are a several exciting additions to the Sage 50 suite.  The product now has one-click support chat built-in so there’s no need to track down a phone number or wait on hold, plus there’s a record of your conversations.  Improved features like streamlined payment processing make it easier to offer your customers multiple payment options on the road or in the office.  There are also several Intelligence Reporting usability and performance enhancements.

We previously mentioned a couple of changes to the product line-up. If you’re using Sage 50 Complete or one of the Premium verticals (like Construction or Manufacturing) then check out the article to see what that means to you.

In addition, Sage made it easier to fit your business and your budget. Now you can choose the number of user licenses your business needs, even single-user licenses, and you can also choose monthly or annual subscription options.

It’s a good time to re-evaluate your business needs.  Will Premium suit your needs or does your business need something more powerful like Quantum? 

A few things to keep in mind when evaluating the cost to the business as well as your efficiency and productivity: Quantum contains all the functionality of the rest of the product line plus many more features to help a growing business.  For instance, if your older accounting software seems sluggish and unable to handle the amount of data you’re feeding it, Quantum was made to handle those large data requirements and is equipped with SmartPosting technology to process data lightning fast; it even allows you to continue working while batch processing.

If you haven’t upgraded in a while, now might be the time to do it.  You’ll be able to start over with a fresh, new product but all your data will remain intact and continue to work with payroll and merchant services.

As always, we can help you with any questions to make the right product decision and guide you through any transition.   Your business will thank you.
