Timac Business Systems has recently added Sage Live to its product offering: http://www.timacinc.com/products/sage/sagelive/
Sage Live fits in well for the small growing businesses looking for a pure cloud solution, and works well on the Salesforce platform. Sage Live provides a single holistic view of your business through a real time integrated cloud accounting system. It helps you to connect your front and back office by allowing transparency and access to accurate information across all your teams.
One of Sage Live’s main strength lies in its ability to very quickly build out dashboards to support different roles within the organization. There are many dashboard types that can be configured to give you a high level graphical management report that you can drill down into to see the detail behind the report.
Data can also be easily segmented by adding dimensions, which can account for segmented data across all transaction types. This is a move away from building out segments in the chart of accounts, and we are seeing this feature in Sage’s newer acquisition of Intacct as well. This is a powerful tool enabling customization’s to easily include segments for analysis across all the data. A typical example where this is often used is to add a dimension for projects.
Alerts and scheduling
Sage Live has built-in abilities to email documents and reports, configure alerts on exceptions to the data, and schedule those alerts and reports, helping to make your processes and decision-making real-time.
Sage Live has some exciting new features for the smaller and growing clients looking to take advantage of the above-mentioned features. However, there are still limitations in regard to customizing this newer product, that are more easily done in Sage 100 or Sage 300 where you would still own and have access to the database. For those companies requiring more detailed customizations, Sage 100 and Sage 300 may still be a better fit for now.
