What AccountingWEB says

Having dominated the UK small business accounting software market during its desktop/PC era, Sage has fallen behind Xero and Quickbooks Online as accounting has started migrating to cloud applications.

Sage has devoted considerable effort to catching up, but progress has slow. That lack of execution and clarity has seen Sage products fall back significantly in our annual software surveys, particularly during 2018.

After yet another revamp, the app formerly known as Sage One has emerged as the centrepiece of Sage’s integrated online accounting and compliance platform. The theory behind an end-to-end bookkeeping and tax/practice cloud workflow cannot be faulted, but early adopters have been underwhelmed by Sage’s offerings so far.

The next year will be a crucial test for Sage. Having reached the street in 2018, the Sage Business and Accountant Cloud packages have a fight on their hands to push back competing incursions from QuickBooks Online, Xero, IRIS and Wolters Kluwer.
