Hi, today we are showing the differences between Sage ACT. Sage Mas go and Net Suite Right now you're looking at a screen with ACT contact manager. As you can see it basically gives information about the company and the contacts, but no activity as regards to sales or any information. The notes tab basically tells you notes, the history tells you there was a quote was sent, but if you want to look at it you can double-click to see the quote. It really doesn't show the actual activity on the accounting inside. This is one of the main reasons we consider NetSuite to have a complete overall picture than just the company and contacts.Watch Screencast

Sage suffered a technical catastrophe when Sage Live, their most recent attempt at Software as a Service, was forced offline by serious security defects during the first month of operations. NetSuite on the other hand has a proven track record as a reliable, scalable and easy to use cloud solution par excellence.
Companies running NetSuite pay only 31% of the costs of owning and operating a combination of Sage products, according to a study by researchers at the Yankee Group.
NetSuite offers advanced business functionality that is unavailable with Sage. NetSuite customers often cite their integrated ecommerce storefronts (built on the Amazon.com model) and actionable website analytics as reasons for switching from Sage accounting. Companies who made the switch from Sage also love that NetSuite is the only hosted CRM with which they can manage partner relationships and incentive compensation.
Since NetSuite is a cloud application, you can access your business software anytime and anywhere in the world.
Switching from Sage to NetSuite is easy and painless with a NetSuite certified solution provider.
