Get to the heart of your business with Sage Intelligence

This tip is focused on Sage Intelligence for Accounting.

With the daily activity and pressure of running a business, it can be difficult to keep track of your business health. Reporting gives you a sense of your numbers, but it often doesn’t provide the detail, flexibility and presentation that you need.

Sage Intelligence gives you the power to view your business information; both financial and operational and at various levels. This information is based on different dimensions, and in the right format, to show you what’s really making things tick. In this tip, we will focus on the financials aspects; here are three things that will help you get to the heart of your business.

Keep track of your business health

A range of standard reports

You’re provided with five standard financial reports—two Assets and Liabilities and three Profit and Loss reports. These reports present your information in different ways, for example: over your 12 financial periods or by your current period.

The ability to view the details

The reports give you options to include various details—for example, filtering by a particular financial year, including account numbers or showing account detail.

You also have the ability to download to Excel and further crunch the numbers

Sage Intelligence gives you the ability to download your reports to the familiar environment of Microsoft Excel. You can do further analysis by using common features such as functions and charts as well as the Excel Design Pane.


These are just some of the features of Sage Intelligence that gives you transparency into your business. This allows you to keep track of your business’s health to make necessary decisions for the future.
