As a small business owner, you wear a lot of hats. And as you grow your company, you’re going to have to fill the roles of general manager, marketing manager, advertising manager, order fulfillment, shipping clerk, secretary, customer service agent, file clerk, bookkeeper, IT department and more. Phew! Although it can be exhausting to wear so many hats at once, you can’t let anyone see you sweat. You have to make a professional impression everywhere you go – from working with clients to dealing with suppliers.
If your invoices and your books are in disarray, your life probably feels that way, too. But here’s the good news: with a simple, online accounting software you can save time, eliminate hassles and make a good impression with everyone.
Run your company like a pro by:
Creating and sending professional invoices – Imagine a clean, simple invoice with your company logo at the top. Sage One makes it simple to look professional when you create and send invoices that reflect your brand.

With online access, automatic reconciling and seamless categorization, Sage One Accounting makes your life easier – and your accountant’s as well. You’ll reduce the time spent on tax preparation because your information is kept in order month in and month out.

Knowing where you stand – Leading your business to new heights means that you need to know where you’re headed. Know exactly where your businesses’ financials stand with the dashboard and reports in Sage One. The dashboard gives you an overview of your company so you can make important decisions.
