New Sales Analysis Capability for Sage 50 US

New Sales Analysis Capability for Sage 50 US

Sales Comparative Period Reporting

If you work with Sage 50 US and use A/R, sooner or later you’ll probably want to compare sales today to sales from another period. The data is all there, but no core A/R report allows a meaningful comparison of sales from one time period to another. To get any such reporting, a user would be faced with running multiple reports, dropping them into Excel, then performing a number of time consuming, tedious and error prone steps to get there.


Sage Intelligence Offers an Option

Fortunately, Sage Intelligence offers a time saving opportunity.  We’ve just added another stock report to our SI library to address this issue. Our reasonably priced stock reports are a great way to add valuable functionality to your current Sage 50 US system. The report below presents Sales $ by Item ID, but the same comparison reporting is also available by Customer, Sales Rep, Item Type and more. Percentage changes from one period to another are also included to help you stay on top of sales trends as they occur.

Sage Intelligence for Sage 50 US-Job Analysis by Supervisor


We can appreciate that not all businesses report on data in the same way. We also know
that creating the perfect report can take hours, if not days, to complete. With Sage 50
Intelligence Reporting, you get customizable Microsoft® Excel®-based business reports,
updated straight from your Sage 50 software, so you can access the information you need
to make swift, confident decisions. No manual exporting, consolidating, or cutting and
pasting data. No broken formulas to fix. No need to reformat the same report month after

You get the latest information when you want it, presented in a way that makes sense for your business. And, best of all, you get it in Excel which means you can edit it, analyze it and send it far and wide in a program you already know how to use.

Sage 50 Intelligence Reporting is a simple and easy to use reporting solution that is built
into your Sage 50 software and designed with the needs of small and midsized businesses
in mind.

Critical information made visible

Intelligence Reporting gives you customized reports, on-demand, without having to
manually update any spreadsheets. It pulls real-time information directly from Sage 50—
and even other databases—into any report template you have previously saved. Drill down for more
detail, slice and dice your data to find the answers you want, and make informed business
decisions with confidence.

Spreadsheet-based reporting at your fingertips

Who doesn’t love quick ROI? Intelligence Reporting is ready to launch from within your
Sage 50 solution. It’s Microsoft® Excel®-based, so the tools and features may already
feel familiar and intuitive, and it comes with powerful and useful standard reports you can
produce right away.

The flexibility of customization—without the frustration

Intelligence Reporting comes standard with financial, sales, inventory and purchasing
reports. In addition, you or your accountant can custom-design almost any report you
need, in the familiar interface of Microsoft Excel giving you total control over your reporting
process. Every customization you make can be saved for future use, sparing you time and

Flexible financial reporting

You can take control of financial reporting with the Report Designer, which speeds up
the building of financial reports. User-friendly features help reduce the learning curve, like
intuitive drag-and-drop tools that make it simple to design financial reports.

Improved efficiencies

Intelligence Reporting automates the reporting process to streamline your efforts, resulting
in greater efficiency. Not only can you run reports at the click of a button, you can also
schedule them to run at the most optimum time of day, for example during off-peak hours,
and then automatically distribute them in the required format to those who need to see

Insight across your business

To stay competitive, you need more than simple general ledger reporting. Intelligence
Reporting gives you the information you need from across your entire business, allowing
you to combine information from multiple sources (including your accounting, CRM, and
payroll databases) to deliver a 360-degree view of your company. Graphical dashboards
provide a visual overview of your company’s key performance indicators (KPIs), while
drilldown capabilities give you further insight into the numbers. And of course you can
use Excel’s analysis tools to filter, sort and analyze data. With better insight, you can track
performance and easily identify trends to aid decision making.

Role-based security to protect your data

Security controls give you the ability to set access to information based on the user’s role,
so you can protect the integrity of sensitive or confidential data.
