Sage upgrades accounting software for small businesses

Accounting software company Sage has launched an upgrade of its Sage 50 accounts software for small and medium-sized businesses.

Sage 50c enables businesses to manage their information, finances and other key tasks across a number of platforms, with Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium being included in the upgrade.

Productivity

Sage’s upgrade offers a wide range of new features that are designed to help the firm’s SME customers to boost productivity and make faster decisions.

Businesses can have access to several of Microsoft’s products through the upgrade, including Microsoft Excel for creation of in-depth reports, Microsoft OneDrive for storing and sharing files, and Microsoft Outlook, where businesses can now access their contacts, history, notes and files from any platform.

The upgrade also offers mobile invoicing and allows businesses to record their expenses, as well as enabling them to capture their invoices, receipts and expenses through OneDrive using a new feature called Sage Capture.

Sage 50c also comes with a real-time business dashboard that offers integration of business processes, as well as bank feeds that provide businesses with updates on their finances.

Freedom

Commenting on the benefits of the upgrade, Sage UK & Ireland and Northern Europe Managing Director, Jacqueline de Rojas, said: “50c gives small businesses the freedom to make day-to-day business processes more productive and more efficient, enabling them to enjoy the flexibility of web-based working without necessarily undertaking wholesale changes to their day-to-day process.”

Microsoft Corporate Vice President of Office, Ron Markezich, stated: “Together with partners like Sage, we’re empowering accounting professionals and small and medium-sized businesses to get more out of every moment.”
