sage 200 logoAcuity’s Sage 200 add-ons

Sage 200 is a complete business solution that can elevate your business to the next level and comes packed with functionality.

Then why did we create extensions, you ask? It’s simple, really.

We didn’t create these apps to replace existing functionality, we built them to enhance your experience of Sage 200 and get the most from your core solution.

We have created solutions to support and strengthen particular workflow processes, including Supplier Reference Checks, Imports, Allocations, Debit Collections, Foreign Payments, Invoicing, Nominal Re-mapper and SQL Back-up Utility.

All of our Sage 200 add-on modules are quick and easy to install, set-up and configure, and are extremely user-friendly with simple screen layouts. They can be used for multiple companies and have no restrictions on the number of users.

Our add-ons for Sage 200 are fully integrated within Sage 200 software and compatible for all supported versions of Sage 200 Professional.

Acuity Add-ons for Sage 200

The standard functionality within Sage 200 does not include automated Supplier Reference Checks. It needs to be done manually, is case sensitive and open to be missed by users.

Instead, our Transaction Reference Check Module:

  • Removes the risk of user error and paying supplier invoices twice
  • Reduces time spent on manually identifying and reversing duplicates
  • Improves efficiency, saves time and increases supplier satisfaction
  • Increases trust in the system for users and payment approvers

The Whiteley Homes Trust logo

Due to significant organisational growth, we found that our Sage 200 Chart of Accounts had also naturally grown to the extent it required straightening out.

Old accounts needed to be removed, new accounts needed to be added, some accounts needed to be merged, and in general we needed to arrange the nominal accounts in groupings that made sense to the way the business had evolved.

Starting afresh and journaling opening balances into new nominal ledgers also meant we would lose the ability to easily reference historic transactions. Having discussed with Acuity we decided to use their Nominal Remapper Solution for Sage 200.

Working first time, the add-on was very intuitive enabling us to change the account codes, names, reports and cost centres in one csv file then upload to sage. We used the solution for three months to allow for alterations, but we made very few. The result is a set of accounts that are fit for purpose and much easier to use.
