Maybe I should rename this blog to do more without Sage as I do more work with SaaS vendors to provide them with an easy way to migrate their prospects from Line 50 to their own offering. After Kashflow I have now done a wizard for Fusion Accounts and there are two other three other vendors who are now looking to acheive the same.
I should stress this is simply because I am passionate about SME businesses *not* the software they use to run their business. So for me it is about the software delivering maximum benefit and productivity to your business regardless of vendor.

Do you have to process payments that you collect via Direct Debit? Some years ago I developed a program called epay for Sage Line 50. epay will take the direct debit collection file that you receive from your bank, post all the cash for each account in the file and then allocate this cash to either the outstanding amount on the sales ledger account (i.e. try and match multiple invoices) or match against a single invoice. My biggest customer of this software processes 2500 direct debits monthly and it saves them approximately 1.5 days a month of manual labour. The software also provides a full audit trail and exception reports where any errors occur. You can see more in this video here:
