Automated FX updates into Sage X3: Easy as £1, €2, $3

Sage X3, by design, is a multi-currency solution. It can handle pretty much any currency you can think of but how you maintain those rates within X3 can determine how much manual intervention is needed.

Companies who trade and report using a number of different currencies within their group will often decide on rates to be valid for a period of time (days, weeks, months in some instances) and where to get those rates from. Although, this is great from a group consolidation point of view, it does mean that the process of updating rates can be a little time consuming and often lead to discrepancies.  

Implementing and maintaining multiple rates requires multiple steps. Deciding on the source of your rates is step one, agreeing on how often those rates are updated is step two, applying those rates within Sage for the agreed time periods is step three and then dealing with any rate variations is step four. The more currencies that are being used, the longer the task becomes.  

In order to help automate this process we, at Acuity, have developed a module which allows for Sage X3 to automatically update currency exchange rates from a trusted source without any manual effort required from users.

We wanted to create a process that was simple to use and fully automated within X3 so that once you create the rules around the currencies you are using (and when the rates update), you can pretty much forget about it.  

Our FX module also provides: 

- Exchange rate data for 170 world currencies, including Bitcoin
