New Sage Contact Office 365 Integration

Sage recently introduced a new feature for Sage 50c called Sage Contact. Sage Contact integrates Sage 50C with Office 365 and allows users to view detailed information about Sage 50c customers and vendors when sending or receiving emails in Office 365 Mail and Microsoft Outlook. Sage Contact also allows users to add and edit customer and vendor details right inside Outlook and the new details will synchronize with your customer list in Sage 50c. This feature requires an Office 365 Business Premium account.


Improved Office 365 Cloud Backup

Sage also made improvements to the Office 365 Cloud Backup feature. Automatic Cloud Backups integrate with Office 365 and provide an easy and secure way to configure automatic backups of your critical company data to a secure location in the cloud. In Release 2 of Sage 50c 2017, the Cloud Backup process has an updated interface and includes enhanced Email Notifications letting you know when a backup has been made. This feature also requires an Office 365 Business Premium account.


Additional Sage 50c New Features & Enhancements

Enhanced Sage One Mobile Invoicing

In Release 2017.1, Sage 50c Accounting added a new mobile invoicing feature that integrates with a free subscription to Sage One.
