Short answer: when comparing Sage 100 to QuickBooks, Sage 100 is the overall stronger solution. But let’s dig a bit deeper to truly understand why Sage 100 is the better option.

Accounting software is designed to manage and record the day-to-day financial transactions of an organization. The general purpose is to keep organizations running smoothly without delays, errors, and/or lack of insights into the future.

QuickBooks is a full-featured business and financial management suite complete with tools for accounting, inventory, payroll, tax filing, invoicing, bank account tracking and reconciliation, expense management, budgeting, payment processing, and accounts receivable and accounts payable management. While this solution is robust and meets the accounting needs of many small organizations, it’s possible to outgrow QuickBooks without ever realizing it. And yes, it’s more comfortable to stay with the system you have… but have you ever thought about what you’re missing?

Sage 100 is more powerful than any ordinary accounting system; it’s an easy, affordable, and fully customizable business management solution that is built to last and meet the needs of any organizations as they grow. The market-leading solution provides a broad selection of feature-rich modules which includes: core accounting and finance, business intelligence, customer relationship management (CRM), eBusiness, human capital management, payroll, manufacturing, distribution, and much more.

Here are some key differences between Sage 100 and QuickBooks:

Intuitive Navigation

Sage 100: Easily navigate to commonly used websites and activate services such as Sage Payment Solutions and Sage Payroll Services.

QuickBooks: Utilize dozens of top-level and sub-level menus (which creates confusion for users).

Customizations & Security

Sage 100: Create ideal workflows and multi-functional data sharing to drive business decisions. Users access only the information they are authorized to see.

QuickBooks: End-users either have access to everything or nothing in accounts receivable and accounts payable. Security settings are not flexible.

Sales & Order Management

Sage 100: End-users can receive, process, and deliver orders to improve supply chain efficiencies and create a faster time to market.

QuickBooks: End-users can track sales but CANNOT fulfill orders or meet supply chain mandates. Add-on software is required for these functions.

Business Insights Dashboard

Sage 100: Access to modern dashboards which providing easy, on-the-fly analysis for end-users.

QuickBooks: Insights tab vs. Home page is confusing. Numbers are only presented in a flowchart and insights are not easily understandable.

Inventory & Production Processes

Sage 100: With Sage Inventory Advisor, users can reduce excess inventory and free working capital while minimizing stock-outs.

QuickBooks: Basic settings lack advanced inventory features in lower-level products. There’s no multiple locations or serial numbers, and users cannot set up FIFO inventory.

Given the above features and benefits, it only makes sense to pursue Sage 100. While QuickBooks is a robust solution for many, the software simply lacks integrated features and scalability.
