Formerly known as Peachtree, Sage 50 is an accounting solution that is recommended for organizations with 50 or less employees. It provides the necessary accounting functions and tools an experienced accountant or bookkeeper would need in order to run an organization, but also offers an easy, functional process and intuitive interface to simplify the overall accounting process. Business owners and accountants can manage cash flow, collections, budgets, payments and taxes all in the same software. Also, Sage 50 offers inventory and report options to make the accounting process and business management process easier.
How is hosted Sage 50 beneficial for you?
There are a plethora of advantages for organizations utilizing Sage 50 hosting. By using Sage 50 hosting, an organization can access their software and data from any device and any location in the world — as long as there is an Internet connection. Users can access data from their in-office computers, smart phone devices while traveling, and laptops at home.
By having instantaneous access to Sage 50 hosting, organizations have unlimited capabilities. Data that is hosted through the right solution, like MyOwnASP, can be edited in real-time along with clients and other in-house staff members. Excel spreadsheets and figures no longer have to be emailed — they can be accessed directly in the Sage 50 hosting network. Organizations also don’t have to submit flash drives or print large reports to submit to their accountants or tax professionals; instead, these users can be given special permissions to access the data they need in the system directly.
Security and Hosting
The biggest concern for organizations today is security. Hosting an accounting software solution means that sensitive financial information is accessible from virtually anywhere. A lot of organizations assume that it is easier for hackers and identity thieves to access information through a hosted network, but the fact of the matter is information is more secure in a hosting environment than stored in-house. The average internal framework for an organization lacks the complexity to ward off sophisticated hackers and organizations are at higher risk for data breaches using an internal framework than outside hosting.
By hosting your accounting solution through MyOwnASP you receive a higher level of security than most organizations can obtain in-house. According to recent studies, organizations in the United States are attacked on an average of two million times per week. By utilizing a team of certified and highly trained engineers, data protection is at the forefront of their day-to-day tasks. Engineers employ top-level authentication protocols and use state-of-the-art data monitoring programs to ensure an organization’s data is secure at all times. Information is stored on highly protected data servers that are stored in state-of-the-art, high security facilities.
With the average cost of a single cyber-attack being about $300,000 according to IBM , it is imperative that small organizations protect their client and company data using a reliable hosting service. A reliable provider can host an organization’s software solution, protect mission critical data, and provide a more efficient way to conduct business. By having access to the latest technology, smaller organizations can also remain competitive against big organizations in the same industry.
