Challenges Just Digital Faced before Sage Intacct

From the outset and project discussions we worked with the Just Digital team to understand the challenges they were having when using Sage 50, what they required from a transition to Sage Intacct and the impact it would have on the business if they did not upgrade.


  • Unintegrated Systems: Just Digital was using Sage 50 without any connection to other solutions. The lack of integration made it challenging to consolidate data and caused inefficiencies in their workflow.
  • Performance Issues: With a significant number of transactions, Sage 50’s performance was suffering, impacting the company’s productivity and overall financial management.
  • Data Accessibility and Audit Logs: Just Digital lacked real-time access to critical financial data and audit logs, hampering their decision-making.
  • External Invoice and Inventory Management: The manual management of invoices and inventory externally added complexity and required better integration capabilities.
