Free up more time for fun with Sage One

“Data entry is the best!” said no one, ever.

more-fun-sage-oneYou know data entry is a thankless job and not especially exciting. So then why are you still spending countless hours on it? Here are a few things you could be doing instead:

  • Go for a walk. Free up some time, get yourself outside (it’s summertime and hot, we know, but cooler weather is right around the corner!), and feel a whole lot better while enjoying some fresh air.
  • Read a book. For fun . . . and you won’t have to feel bad about taking a little “me” time for yourself!
  • One word: vacation!Add up all the hours you spend per year on data entry and you just might be able to swing a late-summer long weekend!
  • Learn something new. Take up a new language or even find the time to enhance your professional skills (shameless plug alert, give LEAP a try here: na.sage.com/leap).
  • Add more value to your clients. Focus on providing real business insights to your clients. It’s worth more to your clients, and it’s what you really want to be doing.

Sounds pretty good, right? When you get your clients working with you in the cloud on Sage One, you can bypass time-consuming and error-prone data entry with bank integration. Here are some quick Sage One facts:

    1. Sage One integrates with over 10,000 banks . . . that’s a lot!
    2. It’s really easy to set up. Your clients just find their banks, log on, approve, and they’re ready to go!
    3. Sage One categorizes transactions, so you don’t have to (although, you can if you want to, of course).
    4. Sage One helps your clients track and categorize expenses with minimal data entry.

Five things we think you should know about Sage One

Sage One is an easy-to-use, cloud-based invoicing and accounting solution that accountants and bookkeepers can offer to clients who are currently stashing receipts or tracking sales and expenses in a spreadsheet.

Here’s what you need to know about Sage One and Sage One Accountant Edition.

  1. Sage One is not a hosted solution. It’s a true cloud-based solution. This means that customers sign up online and access Sage One through the cloud. Multiple layers of encryption and data security have been used to adhere to privacy and security concerns. Bottom line: It’s safe. (And convenient!)
  2. Sage One is designed for small businesses and start-ups that are looking for better management and tracking of their sales and purchases. It’s created to be simplistic and intuitive. It’s designed to move a customer out of the shoebox and into a solution that allows for better tracking of sales and purchases. Sounds good, right?
  3. Sage One is not filled with bells and whistles—and it’s not meant to be. It’s designed for the millions of entrepreneurs and small business owners who have been too overwhelmed or intimidated by “too much software” to make the move to any type of accounting solution. Sage One focuses on getting two things really right. It’s easy to create an invoice, and it’s easy to track expenses.
  4. Sage One is affordable. Choose from Sage One Accounting Standard or Sage One Invoicing (no expenses management, bank integration, or project collaboration features). View the Sage One features chart for current pricing information.
  5. Sage One Accountant Edition is complimentary for accounting professionals.[1] Sage One Accountant Edition lets you invite clients and connect with them through Sage One Accountant Edition. That’s right, you can access multiple Sage One client files with one logon and do it from anywhere you have Internet access. No more passing large files back and forth.
