Sage 50 vs Sage Intacct

If your business runs Sage 50, you’re using a reliable on-premises solution from a trusted brand. From its modest beginnings in 1981, Sage has grown by understanding its customers’ needs and challenges. Innovation, an entrepreneurial spirit, and accelerating customer success drive everything Sage does.

Although some businesses never need to move beyond Sage 50, fast-growing companies with complex needs and multiple entities find Sage 50 eventually hinders progress and growth. The system gets clunky and slow when transactions and user traffic increase. When being used remotely, Sage 50 often disconnects, and it’s impossible to achieve real-time visibility and deep insights due to a lack of role-based reporting and limited control over financial periods.

By graduating from Sage 50 to Sage Intacct, your business can enjoy a best-in-class, born-in-the-cloud financial management system while staying in the Sage family. Built for finance by finance, Sage Intacct features a simple, open API that connects with other mission-critical applications like Salesforce, Expensify, Kimble, and dozens more. This means Sage Intacct is easily configured to your business’s needs.

And with true cloud access, your vital financial information is available anytime, anywhere, on any device. Sage Intacct empowers you to make fast, confident decisions to drive your business forward.
