    We moved from 50 to 200 about two and a half years ago.

    They are hard to compare, they're very different packages, its not like an improved version of line 50. Some bits really annoyed us at first where they felt like a step back from 50. But now we've got used to it it'd be hard to go back. One of the downsides though is the cost, and factor in plenty for consultancy time and training.

    I believe 50 now has projects and timesheet modules built in? So I can't compare these bits as we used to use Sage project account, the messy bolt on software.

    Thanks

    PGM thanks for your reply. I have recently started using sage 200 and I felt as if its going back in time too, but from what you have said, its a matter of getting used to it. The reports it can produce are definately better.

    I felt like the reports it does are worse. Often having to right click and send all to excel to get it in a format I can print off.

    Although if you're good with SQL and get some consultancy, you can pull information straight into excel without using Sage at all. This is handy because you can give staff these spreadsheets, which they can modify the criteria themselves and refresh, and they don't need a costly Sage licence!
