Sage can help your business to automate:

  • Billing
  • Purchasing
  • Accounts Payable
  • General Ledger

One of the biggest advantages of Sage is its’ customization. There are multiple versions of the software to choose from – both for the web and for desktop, where each one contains particular features adjusted for business size and needs. It can offer budgeting, auditing, and job costing functionalities as well as industry-specific reports.

Sage also has great payroll functionality that not only allows you to simplify payroll processes or monitor employee records but also lets you perform advanced payroll tasks. For example, tracking employees’ tips and managing holidays or sick hours.

It is constantly trying to improve its service by releasing updates to the software. In the past year, Sage has added new options such as: showing transactions with attachments, deletion of reconciled bank transactions, AutoEntry invoice number mapping, automation of journal entry creation and more.
