Sage One; making online accounts easy

Posted in: Sage news, Your accounts

On a basis that’s nearly as regular as the rain in Newcastle, the Sage One team release new updates and upgrades to our Sage One services.

The latest of these regular releases included an upgrade to our online accounting services – Sage One Cashbook and Sage One Accounts – the reason? Because our customers asked for it!

One of the most asked for features by Sage One customers was the ability to import data. So we listened and then we developed it. Now our customers can import their contacts details and Sage One Accounts customers can import their products and services details.Sage One: Our easy to use online accounts software

This makes the process of moving your data from an existing accounting package or spreadsheets and even your contacts from your email client a lot quicker and a lot easier. We’re all about making life easier and stress free!

The data has to be in the right format before you can import it so we’ve included a sample file as part of the import wizard to show you exactly what this format is, which guides you through each step of the way.

Sage One is easy online accounting for everyone so if you don’t have previous experience that doesn’t have to be a barrier to managing your business finances. It’s easy to set up and get started and really straight forward to use.

As sure as you can be that it will rain again in Newcastle this summer, you can be certain that this is not the last time we’ll update Sage One. We’re continually seeking feedback for ways we can improve all our services and will implement new features and improvements to existing features.

So if you’re not already doing your accounts online maybe now’s the time to start thinking about it.

Richard Hughes, Sage One

    I am currently using Sage instant accounts but would like to change to Sage one. I have a LOT of data, can I import this data into Sage One?

    • Andrew Hales

      Have you had any response from sage to your query?
      We are also looking at this option – but if Sage haven’t replied to your query it doesn’t bode well for any problems in transfering from “Instant” to “one”

        Hi Andrew,

        As discussed above, we recently updated this blog and in the transition it’s resurfaced Mick’s old comment which I’m not sure if he was replied to. Either way, here’s what we would normally advise:

        To switch to Sage One Accounts would require you to enter opening balances from your Instant Accounts and you would also be able to import names and addresses for your Customers and Suppliers as well as importing product/service records via CSV files. Unfortunately it wouldn’t be possible to import transactions or restore a backup from your existing accounts.

        If this sounds too daunting, our fantastic Sage One Customer Support team would be very happy to help guide you through the process once you’ve signed up for a free 30 day trial at http://uk.sageone.com/accounts and are available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week on 0845 111 66 11.

    I’m considering switching from Sage Instant to Sage One and the fact you cannot import existing data from a backup is a major deterrent.

    I believe that you you can import from a backup with competitors such as Xero so it makes no sense that Sage have not built in a easy upgrade path for those customers using an old accounts package who want to move to the cloud.

    I’m currently using Sage 50 Accounts 2013 and it’s too big for my requirements (I don’t use SOP or POP, nor multi-currency or multi company) I just use the basic ledgers, sales, purchase, nominal, Chart of Accounts, Assets etc. I’d like to migrate our accounts data to the cloud for ease of working and choice when the power goes out at work (thanks to St.Jude). Can you tell me if this is possible please? I appreciate it’s effectively a “downgrade” but it is what suits our business needs.

      Hi Cathy,

      If you need access to the chart of accounts or want to do anything with assets, you will need to use Sage One Accounts Extra, our most advanced level of Sage One Accounts which was released last month (see http://uk.sageone.com/accounts-extra).

      However, if you don’t need anything as sophisticated as that, Sage One Accounts may be sufficient and costs just £10 + VAT per month (see http://uk.sageone.com/accounts).

      Unfortunately, you can’t fully migrate all your financial data from Sage 50 to either version of Sage One (yet). You would have to start again by entering opening balances (bank, customer, suppplier and nominal).

      However, you can import all your customers, suppliers, products and services to help speed things up.

      So, my advice would be to sign up for a free 30 day trial of Sage One Accounts and then give our fantastic 24hr Sage One Customer Support guys a call on 0845 111 66 11 for help and advice on moving things across.
      You can then decide whether this is what you want to do and can upgrade to Accounts Extra if you outgrow the standard level.
