Cloud accounting for Sage50 and Sage 200 users

A genuine true-cloud accounting software as the Sage alternative you've been looking for.

With a vast increase in the workforce now operating from home, many users are now recognising the limitations of working with on-premise finance systems or ‘hosted on-premise’ often termed as fake cloud.  Both speed and security issues become increasingly apparent when enabling remote-access for much of the finance team.

Here at iplicit, we have encountered many frustrated on-premise users who ‘upgraded’ to a hosted service, only to realise that other limitations were introduced as a result, along with the user experience not being as ‘cloud-like’ as they expected. Speed delays, data limitations, requirements for local replication, or even local servers separate to their internet front end.

This is why iplicit is developed as a genuine true-Cloud software available on any internet browser on any device and with a guarantee of NO local servers or applications requirements

The founders of Exchequer accounting software, along with several key members of their original team, joined forces with iplicit to deliver a solution that represents a seamless next-step for all on-premise finance software users, including those seeking an alternative to Sage accounting software.

At the micro-business end of the market, there are two dominant true cloud offerings that serve small businesses very well.  Similarly, for much larger companies, the likes of Dynamics and NetSuite are compelling choices.  Though for the small to medium sized business with say, 30-500 staff, there are very few, cost effective, true-cloud systems to choose from when you begin to look at genuine replacement and upgrade options from your legacy or hybrid software.

Over 40 man-years of development have been invested to ensure that iplicit software is not only a state-of-the-art, cloud-based offering, but is also a solution that is overwhelmingly sympathetic to the needs of the Sage accounting software user.

The original Exchequer team spent 17 years providing leading edge accounting software to thousands of organisations.  Now that cloud-based services facilitate significant opportunities over on-premise legacy solutions, they’ve put the team back together, with the specific intention of appealing to all those using on-premise, legacy software who are ready to take the next step and embrace the additional capabilities now afforded by modern technology

We understand Sage users

We have spent nearly three decades assisting Sage users who have outgrown their Sage 50 or Sage 200 accountancy solutions. Our understanding of the growth and expansion challenges faced as your needs evolve, is second to none. Now with the latest in True-Cloud accounting software, there is a genuine option for on-premise or hybrid-cloud Sage clients to move to a True-Cloud accounting software that’s available on any smart device and on any modern web browser.

Our accounting software offers unprecedented functionality such as single browser/single database multi company consolidation and management, unlimited levels of analysis reporting, workflow approval across all transactions, and all within the one environment at your fingertips.

In a post-covid world, remote connectivity and remote working is key. Many ex-Sage users who have outgrown their Sage software have recognised the limitations of working “the old way” with clunky connections to their servers, or even clunkier connections to hosted or pretend/ hybrid cloud  hosted software.

Many of our new users have experienced the disappointment of “upgrading” to a hosted service in the belief that it was True-Cloud, to then realise the difference and the  limitations that were introduced. Moving to iplicits’ True-Cloud Accounting software was a sea-change for these organisations.

iplicit is a dream!

“We worked with sage 50. I have to say, the pain we went through was horrendous information wasn’t being consolidated. There were replication conflicts. We were literally driving the business blind. And then when COVID hit, and we were going hybrid, nothing worked.

“With iplicit, you’re getting a high-end product for a really cost-effective premium, which really goes to show that they all care about the product and service that they’re providing.” Sarah Smith, Group Operations Director, A-One Insurance

iplicit Customer Success Stories

A-One Insurance Brokers

“We worked with sage 50. I have to say, the pain we went through was horrendous information wasn’t being consolidated. There were replication conflicts. We were literally driving the business blind. iplicit was unlike anything we’d seen before and the staff attentively listened to our needs. And the icing on the cake for us was the fact that from the moment we decided to action and proceed to getting people set up, trained, it literally took 15 days!”

The Grand Theatre Blackpool

“There’s a lot of inter-company work. iplicit makes that a lot easier by consolidating everything together; there’s no logging out and logging back into a different company like we had to do before, we can just swap between them. We’re getting a lot more information out of the iplicit system than we ever did with Sage.Within probably a week or two we could see we’d made the right decision.iplicit is going to make everyone’s life a lot easier. “


“I think we’re typical of many small businesses that grow beyond the capabilities of their entry-level accounting software and then have to play ‘catch up’ when the outmoded and inefficient processes no longer deliver what you need! Timesheet invoicing has probably had the biggest impact on us; it was life-changing! This is a task that used to be a week-long process, every month, with the old system – now it takes just half a day with iplicit!”
