Sage have been one of the biggest players in accounting software for decades, but they had lost ground to new entrants since the rise of cloud services. Business Cloud Accounting is their response to these new competitors, and it’s one of the most comprehensive packages on the market.
All the basics are covered, such as raising invoices and quotes, expense management, and company reporting. However, Sage Business Cloud Accounting also includes many ‘added extras’ that are absent from its competitors. For example, included as standard is a comprehensive credit management system, allowing you to score clients according to risk and make informed decisions about credit limits. Inventory tracking is also included, in case you run a business that deals with stock. Cashflow forecasting is a particularly welcome addition. These tools provide an easy-to-understand view of your future financial position, allowing for better planning. Cashflow forecasting is rarely available in Sage’s competitor apps, and when it is on offer it is generally only as a third-party add-on.
Support for Sage Business Cloud Accounting is available by phone, email, or live chat. Plans begin at £12 per month.
