Reviews of Sage 50

from Fire Protection says…

It is an eary accounting program to use. I never had any problems with it or the upgrades until this past year. It seems as though it is getting very commercialized and they are nickel and dimimg customers.

The good: I have used Peachtree Accounting for over 15 years and never had a problem until this past year. It has always been very easy to use.

The bad: The fact that there is a yearly fee to use their software and they keep terms and conditions hidden from customers until it is too late to get out of the contract.

from Precision Computer Methods Inc. (since 1979) says…

Few packages in this price range present a consistent user interface to payroll, manufacturing, sales and purchase orders, job cost, and the usual suspects of GL,AP,AR, Bank recs. Lots of bang for the buck

The good: You can do many things and only have to learn one user interface. Also, they implemented importing from external files to automate data entry a long time ago. (E.g. import 50 sales orders from a spreadsheet)

The bad: Monthly close is awkward and unlike a lot of other packages. Its a good discipline once you understand it.



The good: More for the accounting person, than a person unfamilar with accounting

The bad: Peachtree by Sage use to be an awesome product and I would have highly recommended it in the past, but now that they have implemented a yearly fee, we are currently looking for another software system. Not my 1st choice, but it will have to do.


Very versatile and can have many add-on’s

The good: Ability to do trending, and overall cost

The bad: Having yearly fees after purchasing the software.
