Sage 200 vs Sage 50
Many SMEs contact us asking “why should we upgrade to Sage 200?” Sage 50 and Sage 200 are aimed at different stages of business growth. Sage 50 is perfect for micro business requiring an accounting solution. But Sage 200 is perfect for ambitious businesses seeking software solutions that will support robust, sustainable growth.
Why upgrade to Sage 200?
Many clients move to Sage 200 as they’ve outgrown their existing software. You will gain greater control over your business by using it. Sage 200 provides leaders with powerful, real-time data that drives decision making, empowers employees and enables them to focus increasingly on higher-value activities that drive your business forwards.
You can use our online tool to discover if you’ve outgrown your existing accounts software
Sage 200 neatly integrates with Microsoft Office 365 and also allows you to connect with a wide-range of third party apps, which can be used to create a complete IT ecosystem that underpins all aspects of your business.
Is Sage 200 right for our business?
Sage 200 is for SMEs, but is built to grow with you. It’s critical that your IT systems keep pace as your business expands. Sage 200 runs on a powerful Microsoft SQL database, which means speed and performance are unaffected by extremely large volumes of transactions or data in the core database. Sage 200 has the power and productivity of the desktop, with the freedom and control of smart, secure cloud-based software.
We’ve helped many SMEs grow rapidly with Sage 200. You can read about these in the client case studies section of our site.
Equally, as one of Sage’s leading partners, our work and advice has actively helped shape the Sage 200 product and service delivery over the years.
Sage 200 helps amplify your people’s performance
Your employees will be one of the greatest beneficiaries of your move to Sage 200. Through detailed team training, a key feature of our work, your people will be taught how to get the greatest benefit from their new software. Sage 200 is designed to free up time previously spent on routine tasks, which in turn helps your people become increasingly engaged with your business. Their creativity, knowledge and experience can then help advance your business at scale and speed.
Sage 200 modules
Sage 200 has a powerful set of core features and has been developed in a modular format, allowing you to tailor the solution to your unique needs. This means you’ll only ever pay for the features you require and allows you to scale your solution as your business changes and grows.
These core features can even be added to using Sage200 extension modules, including CRM, bill of materials (Sage BOM), and Sage 200 Professional can connect directly with Microsoft Power BI (part of the MS Office 365 suite of programs).
