The original Sage 50 desktop application with a perpetual license can still be acquired with the option of on adding on services and integrations.
Our newest set of options comes in the package of Sage 50c (Sage 50C = Sage One + Sage Drive + Sage Payment Solutions + Sage 50 Desktop Rental*).
This option combines the power and productivity of a trusted desktop solution with secure online access and seamless integration with Office 365 (more on this below!) and reporting (coming soon!).
So what is Sage 50c? It's an add-on service new as of early 2016 that combines and allows the integration of Sage One (basic accounting, so invoices and payments fully on the cloud), Sage Drive (allows you to place and share your database on the cloud and to share access with an accountant or colleagues), SPS (credit card number storage secured online) and your classic Sage 50 Desktop installation (rental*). All of these products and services are included as part of the Sage 50C package, add-ons include EFT and payroll (auto tax calculations + e-filing abilities).
Note*: Sage 50 (desktop rental*) included with the subscription Sage 50C would become read-only when off-plan. There is an option to purchase a full perpetual user license.
One limitation is that, if you had a robust inventory, Sage One would not allow you to make invoices linked to your quantities of stock. You can only set up one company on Sage One. Think of it as a stripped down version of Sage 50.
Advanced items such as inventory, project management, payroll, customer statement creation, financial statement creation functionality is (for now) only available in the Sage 50 desktop application.
We do have cloud solutions such as Sage Live and Sage 300 Online that would allow advanced accounting capabilities fully on the cloud. The sales team can be reached at 1-844-789-5433 (Sage Live) and at 1-866-530-7243 (Sage 300) respectively.
Your Sage 50c includes Sage One but Sage One only allows 1 company database to link to Sage 50 (desktop version). For Sage 50 (desktop install) there's no limit on how many company databases you can create in Sage 50. Regarding Sage Drive you can link up to 50 databases. Sage Drive. Sage One is basic in terms of this. As per our disclaimer:
Only customers on the latest release of Sage 50c Accounting have access to the Sage One integration. The Sage One integration (in Sage 50c) includes a subscription to Sage One. If customer cancels the Sage One integration service, to maintain access to Sage One, customer must set up separate billing. Not all Sage One features are available on the mobile app. Mobile devices sold separately and require a data plan. Data access is subject to cellular provider network availability and occasional downtime due to system maintenance.
Sage 50c allow you to keep your business finances on track while remaining compliant with taxes and reporting requirement, whenever you want, wherever you need.
Sage 50c keeps your accounts safe, backed up in case of issue with your computer you can still reinstall the program and recover your bookkeeping thanks to Sage Drive. Plus Sage One is located on the cloud too so you can access it anywhere. Useful if you are on the road prospecting new customers.
