With Sage 200 at the core of your business accounts, you will want to ensure that the rest of your company’s operations can be integrated, along with any existing or planned standalone systems.
The Sage 200 suite delivers a versatile product that suits your growing business. You can be confident that any migration of data, when upgrading to this software, is seamless and easily transferred due to a system that can handle more complex and dynamic business activities entirely.
If looking to upgrade to this platform, the next step is to ensure the Sage 200 software solution is going to work for you. To benefit from this solution fully, the key attributes to the Sage 200 suite outweigh the assumed hassle of its installation. The integration of Sage 200 is a very real consideration for your business, so be assured that investing in this installation needn’t be a worry. Sage 200 has been designed to take on board existing data housed within your current software and transfer this without risk or complication.
The end result is a clearer view, utilising data sourced cross-functionally and departmentally, for more informed decisions going forward, with efficiency and for a truer business perspective. Unlike software with less capability, Sage 200 is equipped to integrate successfully within your company. The pick-and-mix options to customise the product to your business needs certainly prove this software suite’s worth.
Being an integrated system you only need enter information once, and it will be used elsewhere in the system. Each data input is trackable, as given a unique reference, and can therefore be utilised within relevant modules, offering unlimited resource to all users within the company from sales to accounts, wherever they are based. The process is streamlined and efficient in this way. The system can handle an unlimited number of transactions which must mean that you are better informed. The software offers complete end-to-end process management.
The customisation of Sage 200 will make it simple and cost effective to deploy and maintain.
