Once the bank feeds are downloaded, Sage 50/50c will automatically match the transactions previously recorded to clear.
Cloud and Mobile Navigation Center
The Cloud and Mobile Navigation Center connects services via the cloud and allows for remote company data sharing. Accessible from the file menu, Office 365, Sage Drive, and Sage One are all integrated. Beginning with the release of Sage 50c, the Cloud and Mobile navigation center are included. Your data is securely shared through the cloud without compromising data security. There are many features included with this new navigation center.
Sage Contact Improvements
Again, this feature is integrated with Microsoft Office 365 to allow you to view detailed information about Sage 50c customer and vendor contacts in the Office 365 Mail app and desktop version of Outlook. There is a comms tab that provides the view of previous communication with vendors/customers to easily review the history of communications and there is a notes tab to track communications and share notes with other users.
Sage Dashboard – Office 365 App
This is a new application offered in Sage 50/50c that integrates with Microsoft 365 that will allow you to view Revenue-Expense information, Aged Payables and Aged Receivables directly in Office 365. As long as you have access to the web, you will be able to view these features through a series of interactive charts and graphs. This feature provides you the ability to view critical data anywhere, anytime. The app will sync automatically. Examples of these features include Overdue Sales by Period shown on a bar graph for the last 12 months with the ability to drill down on a particular month. An Accounts Aging Pie chart is also available displaying the largest and oldest accounts as the larger pieces of the pie and the smaller piece listed as other with the remaining past due customer accounts. The pie chart can also be drilled down by selecting a customer. On the Payables tab, the bar graph will display Overdue Purchases by Period and the Pie chart displays Accounts Over 90 days past due. The final tab is Revenue and Expenses displayed for the past 12 months in bar graphs.
