It's possible! You made a great first step with Sage 50  but times have changed, and so has your role. You need a system that will help your business every day, not hinder it.

Move through the sections below to learn how moving from Sage 50 to Sage Intacct is the best next step for your business.


Why Businesses Migrate From Sage 50 to Sage Intacct

Growing small and midsized businesses rely on Sage 50 for their accounting and financial management needs. However, due to growth and increased competition, they’ve recognized the need to advance beyond Sage 50’s capabilities.

Many Sage 50 customers seeking to improve speed and agility have migrated to the cloud with Sage Intacct™, Sage’s flagship, award-winning native cloud product. Customers switch to Intacct because it’s a simple, fast, and scalable cloud-based solution with more capabilities than Sage 50.

Multi-Dimensional Reporting

  • Generate reports in seconds rather than days with calculated fields and unlimited dimensions.
  • Gain real-time visibility into critical metrics with dashboards.
  • Reduce audit times by up to 50% with clear audit trails and direct auditor access to reports.

Streamlined Multi-Entity Management

  • Consolidate hundreds of entities in minutes instead of days from a single instance.
  • Close the books 80% faster.
  • Set up new entities in minutes without expensive consultants.

Built for the Cloud

  • Grant anywhere, anytime access with 99.8% guaranteed availability and rigorous security certifications.
  • Eliminate upgrade disruption with four feature-rich yearly upgrades delivered automatically.
  • Integrate easily and inexpensively using Intacct’s modern cloud APIs for always-on integrations at a fraction of the cost of on-premises integrations.

Automate Scalable Financial Processes

  • Grow revenue 2x-4x with little to no additional headcount.
  • Automate PR, PO, and payment approval workflows to increase efficiency by 50%-90%.
  • Reduce days sales outstanding (DSO) by 30%-60% and generate free cash flow with automated invoice generation and payment processing.

Is it Time for you to Migrate to Sage Intacct?

Many businesses rely on ad-hoc workarounds in their financial management systems to remain operational and maintain the status quo. However, that doesn’t work forever. As nimble competitors interact with your customers and partners, the pressure mounts on your teams to act faster and be more productive.

Fortunately, it’s easy to recognize if Sage 50 is causing your business to lag, and it’s time to migrate to Sage Intacct. Signs include:


  • Producing 60% or more of your reports in Excel
  • Managing two or more entities
  • Finance personnel spending 10+ days closing the books
  • Employees having difficulty accessing your system remotely
  • Staff missing deadlines and making mistakes
  • Needing to increase headcount because of manual processes

Leap Ahead While Staying With Sage

No business wants to disrupt operations to upgrade their core systems, which is one reason Sage Intacct is the ideal replacement for Sage 50. Although Intacct is a giant leap forward in financial management capability, you won’t need to re-train your staff because they already know how to use Sage.

Migrating to Sage Intacct will also be easier because SAP designed the system to carry forward how you currently use data and workflow elements within your Sage 50 implementation.


Imagine gaining all the functionality of a modern, cloud-based Sage financial management system without the overhead and resource requirements of a standard migration.
