Simply Accounting has a new name: Sage 50 Accounting
* and earlier
The upgrade for Sage Simply Accounting Basic 2007 or Sage Simply Accounting 2008 is now Sage 50 Pro Accounting. We have transitioned away from calling any of the products "Basic" because the product just isn't basic anymore. In 2008, we dropped the term "Basic" and since 2009 we have added "Pro" which better reflects the level of accounting and business management tools available in the product. See also, the upgrade paths diagram.
If you're upgrading from Sage Simply Accounting Pro 2007 or earlier versions, you will either need to select Sage 50 Premium Accounting or Sage 50 Quantum Accounting.
Sage 50 Premium Accounting and Sage 50 Quantum Accounting are the only products that support multiple users. Sage 50 Premium Accounting supports up to 4 user licenses and Sage 50 Quantum Accounting supports up to 40 user licenses in increments of 5.
If you have multiple users, you should consider upgrading to either Sage 50 Premium Accounting or Sage 50 Quantum Accounting products. See also, the upgrade paths diagram.
You should upgrade to Sage 50 Premium Accounting if you only have 4 or less users.1 If you have more than 4 user licenses, then we encourage you to look at Sage 50 Quantum Accounting. Sage 50 Premium Accounting will support up to 4 users, whereas Sage 50 Quantum Accounting supports up to 40 user licenses.1 See also, the upgrade paths diagram.

No. The past "Basic" product is now positioned as Sage 50 Pro Accounting because it provides all the tools you need to accelerate the growth of your business.
Sage 50 First Step Accounting is our single-user entry level accounting software package for entrepreneurs, small or home-based business owners who require a simplified accounting software package. If you are currently using pen and paper method or a spreadsheet program, this is a great place to start. This product doesn't have payroll or inventory management functionality. It provides easy to use tools to track revenues, expenses, and tax.
Once a business has exceeded the need for 4 users, it should move to Sage 50 Quantum Accounting which comes in increments of 5 for up to 40 user licenses. Find out more about Sage 50 Quantum Accounting.
