Sage Payroll is a cloud-based payroll solution that caters to small and mid-size businesses across various industries, helping them manage their payroll operations. The solution can also be deployed on-premise.
Sage Payroll allows users to pay their employees through direct deposit, paycards, or company-generated checks. The solution provides multiple reports to the users for analysis. Sage Payroll's features include a report-writer tool, GL export capability, delivered checks, and support from a named dedicated payroll expert.
Sage Payroll can integrate with systems such as Sage 50, Sage 100, and Quickbooks. It can also be combined with time and attendance solutions to track PTO, overtime and tardiness.
Sage Payroll is billed according to the number of payroll runs. Support is offered via phone, email, chat and through an online knowledge base.

We really liked how simple Sage have made this software, they must have used different developers than the Sage 50 developers! We also liked the VAT handling, top marks for that.
Sage One is extremely basic and fairly straight forward to use. The software is a no frills solution and is stripped down to bare bones. For instance, there are no nominal codes and no transactions list (audit trail) etc. The terminology is also very user friendly so that non-professionals and users without bookkeeping experience can understand it better.
The website has a mediocre design but the design of the accounting software itself was actually very good, better than the website’s design, which is unusual!
Speed: The speed of the actual accounting software is fast but entering transactions is not. For example, entering cash book (banking) transactions has three steps which seemed a bit overkill in our opinion. Also the places for entering sales receipts, purchase payments and bank transfers were spread out throughout the software which meant that it coule be time consuming if you have a mixture of transactions to enter.
We did not like how entering different types of transactions required the user to access multiple sections of the accounting software.

I like sage payroll compared to other providers for the prices they offer and the customer service that is available.
Sage payroll is easy to use and is cost effective. Sage charges very reasonable prices to run payroll and to direct deposit payroll checks.
I do not like that it takes up to 7 days to clear a pre-note when authorizing a new bank account. It is inconvenient to check manual checks while a pre-note is processing

After years of being a loyal customer I am saying goodbye.
The program can still be learned or a course the price of a arm and a leg can be taken and you will be able to work it after a while in part.
Please do not expect telephone support because pastel has a high call volume and year end the whole year through. Email support is a guide that is sent to sort you out and 80% misses the plot completely. Do not overpay your account even once, because each month you will have to throw a tantrum and send an email to all their departments to get out of arrears for overpaying them.

Sage software makes our job more easier and convenient since it can be access through mobile phones and fax which is very useful in our corporate that have a numerous number of branches, and make it possible to check ledgers any time even out of working hours. It also covers all payroll processing and taxation duties with expanded range of reports including general ledger.
As of now I don't have any problems with sage software it is very useful for all of us in our department and makes our work more efficient
This cloud based program lets us do our payroll and keep track of time in an easy enough to use platform. Since this is geared towards small and medium sized businesses it was perfect for us. It allows us to pay with direct deposit, paycards, and company checks which is very convenient for us. Overall this program is great at doing what it needs to do.
There are times that this can be a little slow to use and buggy, but overall we haven't had too many issues with the program and think the benefits outweigh the cons. Nothing major that would hold us back from buying again.
