What's New in Sage 50cloud - U.S. Edition 2018.2

The 2018.2 release delivers to you and your business new and innovative features to aid you in making your business life easier! All features in this release pertain to on plan cloud customers, while the first two features listed below pertain to both on plan cloud and traditional customers.

Sage 50cloud is a hybrid-cloud product that includes features to allow you to access and enter data while working remotely. Sage Drive enables you to access data shared with you by another Sage 50cloud user remotely without having to use Remote Access. Office 365 Synchronization allows you to access Sage 50cloud information such as customer information, reporting and dashboard KPI info, and use the Sage Capture app (both for iOS and Android) to record receipts. Integration with Sage One enables Mobile Invoicing. 

Sage Business Cloud Payments (Sage 50cloud and traditional)    

Sage Business Cloud Payments enables you to make managing payments simple and getting paid easy and effortless. Sage has partnered with three trusted payment providers who will provide you with the choice on how to get paid faster through invoices and point of sale payments. 

eInvoicing with Stripe is here! Sage has partnered with Stripe to provide you a quick and seamless way to accept credit and debit card payments by adding a "Pay Now" link to your invoice emails and get paid instantly. With our integration, you can reduce time spent chasing late payments and reconciling your accounts. And set-up takes less than 5 minutes with Stripe eInvoicing. 

Sage Payments Solutions has a new brand name, Paya! While the name is new, the Paya team and technology solutions are industry-tested and come with almost 20 years of payments expertise. Paya is integrated into Sage 50cloud; your same trusted payment processor, with a new name. 

PayPal partnership coming soon! Sage is partnering with PayPal. Stay tuned for the launch of PayPal early April.
