The new version is called Sage 50cloud as it has cloud elements (such as Office365) integrated into the software. There is also a new customer and supplier search function and a new assistant to delete inventory. The search (zoom) screen sizes have been adjusted to show more information. The new version is also faster to open. If you're paying an annual or monthly fee to Sage, the updated software will be free and you can update at any time.
