    Looking for something better than Sage 50 Pro.

    Looking for an alternative to Sage 50 Pro that is more sales based. Sage 50 as a sales tool is straight up useless.

    2) Duplicate a Quote into a Sales Order and vice-versa.

    3) When entering a Quote or Sales Order allow me to see previous prices the product was sold at, or it's price after discount in real time. I shouldn't have to quit the Sales Order module so I can go open up other sales orders or modules to find the last sold at price for a customer or go hunting for a discount matrix to apply to the price that's being displayed.

    4) On premises installation. None of this cloud rubbish where I have no control over someone elses downtime..

        Quickbooks only seem to sell their online cloud product nowadays (at least I can't find anywhere on their site to see/buy Desktop software), so they're not offering the diverse choices of use and deployment that Sage look like they're offering.

      Xero - it's not cloud based - instead it runs on loads of servers in data centres and you use a web browser to access it.
