SAGE50 purchase invoice scanning

whose using what..

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

starting to look at the possibilty of scanning supplier invoices into sage 50  or getting a data input clerk !!  looking at feasibility therefore of technology to assist

does this allow you to view on screen invoices historically scanned [ ie scanning in now with what is advised here... and down the road when you tap a pi you will be able to drill down to the document ? ]  we are talking sage50 desktop

what happens if/when one moves to the cloud offering 50c - is this scanning option still available ? [ fine points not discussed by software or sage themselves ? ]

really looking at user experienc e and potential products to review which actaully are in use by members oh and scanning hardware toys will be next presumably

I have trialled scanning invoices into Sage 50 using Autoentry but I have not used it on a live client yet. It works OK and should work equally well with Sage50c although it is more clunky than using Autoentry with, say, Xero or QB.

You are restricted to supplier invoices only (i.e. no Bank payment expenses). The invoices can not be stored in Sage but can, I believe, be held by Autoentry; personally I think a good electronic filing system outside of the accounts can be as, if not more, effective.

Depending on volume, I rate the Fujitsu IX500 highly for scanning.

Edit: Reordered first paragraph for clarity.

Sage 50c isn't cloud at all, it is still the same desktop application, it just has links to cloud application such as Office 365, hence the 'c'.

Add Ons written for Sage 50 still work with 50c (assuming the developers of such add ons have a version compatible with the relevant version of Sage 50c)
