Additional Users

Up to 2 users can work together on Sage 50 Accounts and Sage 50 Accounts Plus at a time.  Up to 10 users can work together on Sage 50 Accounts Professional (formerly Financial Controller).  Licenses can be shared across locations and even countries.

It is possible to have as many additional companies as needed.  The normal Sage permission levels apply, but in addition, it is possible to give specific users access to all datasets while others only see a specific one or more. (See Controlled Levels of Access)

Sage Authorised Application Service Partner

Maximum Flexibility

Increase numbers within one working day.  Decrease numbers with just one calendar month's notice.  With rented software, upgrades are included.

Share Licenses Across Sites

Although every person who needs to login requires their own username, they don't all need their own Sage license.  Part time finance staff can share Sage licenses even across different locations.

Best in Class Speed

Faster Than Sage On Your Network

Sage online from Online50 is faster than Sage on your local network.

The Dataset Challenge

Ten years ago, Online50 purchased a few bottles of Bollinger Champagne and offered them to anyone who could operate a Sage 50 dataset quicker on their internal network than they could do on Online50.

The bottles are still on the shelf.

Each year, we innovate to make it even faster.

Host Your Existing Copy Of Sage50

If you already have a version of Sage 50 software which you are happy with, provided it legally belongs to your company, it is often possible to host that version.

Host Your Sage Software

Many users with recent versions of Sage get Online50 to host their existing version of Sage until they decide they want an upgrade and then move to renting software from us on monthly terms.

Sage Online from Online50 is fully managed for you by our engineers

Sage Fully Managed For You

With Sage Online an additional benefit is that you don't need to worry about software updates or issues.

Leave Managing Sage To Us

Our engineers add all software and security updates, roll out all upgrades and deal with all maintenance of the server leaving you able to use the software to run your business rather than manage the infrastructure.  All systems are monitored 24 hours of every day.

Online50 are certified secure

Controlled Levels of Access

Sage 50 already allows for users to be given access rights based on their user name and password. All this functionality remains when using Online50.

In addition, we can limit users so they are not able to even see a company dataset they should not have access to.

For example: The FD of a chain of pubs sets up a dataset per pub.  The FD can see all the datasets while each individual pub manager can only see the dataset they have been allocated.

Online50 are certified secure

Local Backup of Sage 50

Every day everything at each data centre is backed up to the other data centre. Through the day snapshots are taken of the data which provides additional roll back points.

At the end of each session, you are able to take a backup of your Sage data and store it on your local machine. This backup will work on a local copy of Sage (provided it is the same version).

Please note that this is NOT a replacement for operational backups

Print to any printer

Print Anywhere

Using a specially adapted driver, the Online50 servers will be able to print to the printers available to the machine being worked on.

For example if the Director's computer is normally able to print to all four of the office printers, our special software will allow the Director to print from Sage (on our servers) to any of those printers.

Should the Director later work from home, the printers that the home computer can print to normally could be used to print Sage online outputs.

Share files and folders between users in your company

Team Drive - Virtual File Server

A common issue for finance teams is the need to share files and folders.

All users of your Online50 account would share a simple but highly secure virtual file server as a part of the service.


Having one place to store files and folders for the finance function can add real flexibility and for only the price of the storage used.

With Screen2Screen share your screen with another user to provide training or support

Screen2Screen Remote Support Tool

Rather than allowing team members to struggle along, the Screen 2 Screen tool ensure a quick and easy way to get all team members working as efficiently as possible.

Cut support time by being able to look at and even control the Online50 screen of a colleague.

If your accountant also uses the Online50 service they too can use this software to support you and your users.

Integrate your Business Systems in the Cloud

Software Integration

If you need to work with a range of software and need it to integrate, Online50 is likely to be the perfect hosting partner for you.

We have a wide range of Sage software online, Hosted Microsoft software, online CRM and a wide selection of Sage 50 Accounts add ons online.  Everything integrates with Sage 50.

The vast majority of software is available on the same flexible monthly terms.
