Sage 50cloud

Sage 50cloud provides business software for accounts, payroll, HR, ERP, CRM and payments for every size of business.

While Sage 50cloud is an amazing accounting software system, it doesn’t help you manage your day to day jobs. This is where the Commusoft and Sage integration comes in.

What Do I Need?

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between Sage 50 and Sage Accounting?

Sage 50 or Sage Instant is a desktop application, while Sage Accounting is a Cloud application. This means that you won’t be able to access Sage Line 50/Instant login from a computer where it hasn’t been installed. With Sage Accounting, you can access your Sage login portal from any device. 

How difficult is it to integrate to Sage?

Sage 50 or Sage Instant is a desktop integration. Therefore, it is not as seamless as connecting to other cloud-based packages. The integration requires the installation of a small program that allows records from our web-based software to send information to a desktop application. We do, however, have a comprehensive guide on completing the integration. In order for the process to go smoothly, we advise that you familiarise yourself with the infrastructure of your Sage installation. 

Can I import my customers from Sage 50 Instant into Commusoft?

Yes. You’ll need to export your customer list into a CSV file and tidy up the data first but this is something we cover in training. Our trainer will be more than happy to provide a template for how we store customer data and advise you on the steps needed to clean the data.

Can I use Sage 50 Instant and Commusoft at the same time?

If you only have one login for Sage, you will need to close Sage for records to send from Commusoft as we will require the login to access your package in the background. If you have a dedicated Sage user for Commusoft, then you will be able to process records while also having Sage open. Make sure that your antivirus is set-up to allow this type of communication, otherwise there might be issues in data going across.

Can the integration interface pass information if the Sage server is closed down?

Unfortunately, if the Sage server is down or malfunctioning, there is nothing the Commusoft team can do to help. All communication between the two software will stop until the Sage server is back online.

Does Sage 50 Instant support Commusoft’s CIS functionality?

No, it will not pass the functionality values over to Sage Line 50 Instant as the integration does not support this feature. However Sage Accounting – the online Cloud version – does support it and we do pass the values along. 

How much of a customer’s profile does Sage receive from Commusoft?

We are able to communicate seamlessly with Sage therefore we’ll send the invoice number, work address, payment, description as well as create a customer record. This means that you won’t have to input double data manually in each system.

Can you assign nominal codes to one invoice?

Yes! And what’s more is that you can assign multiple nominal codes to a single invoice. Most integrations are too simplistic and therefore limited to only assigning one nominal code to an invoice. Commusoft, however, allows you to pass multiple financial figures to the same invoice.
