Upgrading from Sage 50

Sage 200 is much more capable software than Sage 50 (previously known as Sage 50cloud), so it’s an obvious destination for Sage 50 users that need to upgrade.  It stores, and so can report on, much richer financial, sales and other data; it can handle many more transactions; it allows more users; it’s more flexible and can be readily customised or integrated with other software.
