This handy toolbox simplifies importing orders from your e-commerce Web site for manipulating with your business' Sage accounting software. However, a bug in the automatic scheduler means you'll have to rely on manual data pulls.

Sage Order Importer complements your existing Sage 50 or Sage Line 50 accounting software by serving as a bridge from your e-commerce Web site to your in-office accounting package. It streamlines orders and inventories onto a single platform, freeing business owners from having to shoehorn data into multiple apps. The Sage set-up wizard makes configuring data sources a simple matter. The two-paned interface has a clean-cut layout resembling the design of familiar e-mail clients. The vertical left pane displays a directory of Jobs (orders and customers), and the larger left pane, which takes up most of the window, lists the orders from the selected Jobs. Selecting an order ID opens a fresh window with critical information about the order, including contact information and data about the ordered products. All information displays clearly. The program imports data quickly and efficiently with XML, CSV, and Excel file options.

Sage Order Importer tested well, except for one glitch: the user-defined scheduler for automatically importing data crashed whenever we tried to open it. If you're willing to import data manually and don't really need automatic feeds, this glitch won't be an issue. But if you want the efficiency of an automated data import, you might want to steer clear of this app until all the bugs are worked out.
