Overview of Sage 50 Cloud Accounting Software
Sage 50cloud is a hybrid solution that gives you the best of both worlds. Sage 50cloud is still a desktop software with some cloud capabilities. Most of Sage 50cloud capabilities and functionality must be performed on the computer where your software is installed. Most importantly, the program data still resides on your computer.
The cloud capability in Sage 50cloud permits you and every other licensed user with Sage 50 installed on their computer to simultaneously access data using Sage Drive. Any changes made will be synchronized back to the original data set. The Sage 50 software program will need to be installed on all remote computers. Your Sage 50 Cloud (Subscription) license comes with one additional download to be installed on your Accountant’s computer.
If you want your data in a true cloud, you must host your data with a hosting company.
Sage 50 Cloud is only available via an auto-renewing annual subscription.
Subscription software means you can only use the software license during your paid subscription period. It is just like a magazine; it will expire after one year and it must be renewed if you wish to continue using the software. If you choose to stop renewing the Sage 50 Cloud subscription, your data will become read-only.
