Sage is a UK-based company founded in 1981 with a suite of different accounting products. It has the Sage 50 product (formerly known as Peachtree in the US) for small businesses, Sage Intacct for medium size businesses, and Sage X3 for medium to enterprise size companies. Sage 50 is a desktop product that is “cloud-connected” and similar to QuickBooks Desktop. Sage Intacct and X3 are web based softwares. Customers complained that Sage products were dated and lacked the modern features of our recommended tools (QuickBooks & Xero). The Sage products also have fewer integrations than our recommended tools. Some argue that Sage products are more enterprise friendly, but we think our recommended tools can scale until your business is ready for a truly enterprise level software like NetSuite or SAP.
