Sage One is a relative newcomer to the cloud accounting software space but it has the backing of a massive company in the enterprise accounting (or ERP space).
With the aggressive and smart marketing machine that Xero is, it’s little wonder they would get the attention of larger accounting software publishers like Sage. Sage One is a logical place for the software giant to get business customers while they are small and then upgrade them all the way.
Sage One Targets Small Businesses
The biggest challenges for small businesses are the daily transactions of data entry for invoices, purchases, payments and receipts and then reconciling accounts at the end of the month. Some call it credit management other classify it as the job of a credit controller but it’s most often perform by junior accounts staff or office managers. The biggest market for this functionality is the small and micro businesses with 4 or less staff and that market is a sweet spot for accounting firms like MYOB (with their MYOB Essentials software), Intuit with QuickBooks Online and of course Xero.
These beginner level skills in accounting software can be challenging for small businesses which combine products AND services, particularly if they are not diligent with their terms of trade!
