Liquid – easing the transition from Sage 50 and other legacy desktop accounting software to the Cloud

Here are a few reasons why Liquid is the most cost effective accounting software to choose when upgrading to the cloud from Sage 50 and other legacy desktop software…with the included link to MyPAYE at no extra cost!

Why should i move?

If the Covid 19 pandemic has shown us anything, being prepared for every eventuality is essential.
Hosting your accounting software fully in the cloud means that you and any of your colleagues can have access to it, wherever you are, on any device that has a browser and an internet connection.
Don’t put up with half measures – Liquid will give you a 100% cloud accounting experience, including desktop matching speed, all updates, data backups and a personal service experience that few of our competitors can match.

We will guide you through the process from start to finish

Changing accounting software is never easy, and we will dedicate a specialist Consultant to hand hold you through the move to Liquid.
They will deal with capturing your specific needs, converting your Sage 50 or other product data for use in Liquid, setting up your nominal structure (Sage 50 nominal structure available if you want to use it), training you and your colleagues, and dealing with your questions when you first start using the software.
You will also have an account manager you can speak to at any time.

Option of Sage 50 nominal code structure

We understand you know the nominal code structure in Sage 50, so we’re not going to force you to use a new one – it’s available to use as an option within Liquid Accounts.

Liquid has it’s own Nominal Code structure should you want an alternative, which is easily editable to your own requirements.

Historical data conversion

We can convert a lot of your old Sage 50 data, including customers, suppliers, payments, opening balances, orders, etc.

Call us on 0161 413 5050 to discuss what you need to move and we will give you an honest appraisal of what can be achieved.

Built-in, optional advanced modules

Whatever you need now or in the future, Liquid can provide. Powerful features include a full, 5 level, segmented Ledger, Advanced Stock, Bill of Materials, Company Consolidation module, and E-commerce integrations with platforms such as Shopify, Magento, PayPal.

Moving from Sage 50 to Liquid Accounts – a case study.

Don’t just take our word for it – hear it from a happy customer.

Established in 1982, Comtec Presentations have an unrivalled history in providing marketing solutions to an exceptional range of clients.  From multinational corporations to political parties, including educational institutions, they have helped arrange the biggest and the best to deliver their messages with clarity, flair and precision.

To support the business in delivering the best possible service and results, Comtec relies upon its business management software to ensure that the finances are under control. For many years, this was done using Sage 50, the perennial desktop accounting package that has been a feature of British businesses for many years.

However, the business felt it was time to move on and modernise their accounting and finance procedures to better match how the team were now working, and Liquid was considered as a Sage 50 replacement.

One of the main drivers of wanting to move to cloud accounting software was the freedom of using the software wherever it was needed, and it not being an on-premise package as Anne, the finance manager, does not attend the office every day and needs to use the software wherever she happens to be at any given time.

Liquid provides her with this, as it is 100% cloud and simply requires an internet connection and a browser to access, with no need to install or register any software.

Critically, they had experienced some data corruption issues with Sage 50, and as it was approaching their new financial year, they wanted a clean start in a fresh new system ready for the start of their new fiscal year.

Changing accounting software is never easy, and there are days when Anne looks back on Sage 50 with some fondness, but the benefits that Liquid provide for a more flexible, variable working life more than make up for any loss of familiarity.
