So you think that Sage 50 hasn’t changed much recently? Let ACIT, Sage & Microsoft (yes Microsoft!!) change your opinion. We are excited to introduce you to Sage 50c (Cloud Connected). Power, trust & productivity of the desktop (you love)….now with the flexibility & automation of secure cloud & mobile access.
Be excited, be very excited, as at ACIT we certainly are!!
Sage 50c is made up of many new elements and is built on Microsoft’s Office 365 Platform. Here are just a few of the highlights of Sage 50c:
All your Sage customers and suppliers can be viewed from anywhere, any time on any device. Change records, record communications and link files from Outlook on your desktop, browser or phone (or still in Sage 50!).
In addition to the contact details, you can see account information such as balances, sales histories and check stock etc all from Outlook!
Automatically attach Invoices, Order Confirmations, Purchase Orders PDFs against the customer/supplier records on OneDrive (the file storage bit of Office 365!).
Simply take a photo of your receipt for your purchase, enter the details and the transaction is posted to Sage 50 Accounts, with a copy of the receipt easily accessed via OneDrive.
Automatically create Sage 50 purchase transactions by clicking on a PDF supplier invoice attached to an email in Outlook. All saved safely in OneDrive!
Sage Intelligence Reporting
Sage claim this is Smart, Sexy & Interactive, who would we be to argue!
A cloud reporting engine hosted in Office 365 that lets you report from your Sage data into Excel online or desktop, amend the reports, save them and run them in your format when you like.
View at-a-glance your business trends with powerful dashboards and drill down functionality with Sage Overdrive.
Direct Bank Feeds
So you log onto your bank’s website, check who has paid you, go into Sage, put on the customer receipt, save it, go into bank reconciliation and reconcile your bank.
Never again! With Direct Bank Feeds you can build rules and it learns how you deal with transactions, so you will never type a payment again! You will be less of a wreck after your bank rec – sorry!
So that’s some of the product, now let’s talk about the service…
ACIT Solutions are one of the most knowledgeable Sage specialists in the UK. We commonly hear the phrase, “Sage said that couldn’t be done”, right after we have shown the customer how it can!! An element of ACIT’s continued development is the growth of our IT department, who just happen to be experts in Microsoft Office 365! Combining this knowledge with the fact that Sage now allow us to provide you with front line support, all for the same price as you would pay them!
So you are thinking how can Sage 50c supported by ACIT be a better proposition than being supported by Sage themselves. We provide a personalised local support service, we understand our client’s businesses and how they use their Sage software which enables us to give relevant tips and advice. You always speak to a human when you call, no automated telephone systems asking you for information you don’t have to hand! We take ownership of issues and if necessary send you off for a cup of tea while we sort out your system (not leave you on hold while we wait to speak to a more qualified member of the team, at ACIT Solutions we are all well qualified!) Finally. if the time isn’t right to log other people off the software, we’ll call you back at a time which has less impact on your business. So yes, that’s why we are better!
So what, when, how?
Sage 50c is released from January, irrespective of whether you have a perpetual licence or subscription, Sage’s or ACIT’s cover, you can get your hands on it from then.
