Has your business outgrown Sage 50?

As an entry-level accounting solution Sage 50 is perfect for small businesses. However, it is inevitable that as your business grows you will outgrow Sage 50 and need more functionality.

As a current user of Sage 50, you will be aware of the powerful functionality that Sage has to offer. You have built your business using Sage and your team has become familiar with its functionality but frustrated by the limitations of Sage 50. It has done the job it was required for and taken your business as far as it can. But now you need something bigger, what’s next?

What’s the next step for you?

You need a solution that is going to match your ambitions and grow as you do, adapt to change as quickly as you need it to and provide bags of functionality to support the whole company. The natural progression for your business should you get to that stage is to upgrade to Sage 200.

Signs you need to upgrade from Sage 50 to Sage 200

When do you know it is time to make the switch from Sage 50 to Sage 200?

Every business is different and there is not a set of rules or reasons why or when a business should upgrade. If you feel that your existing system is no longer helping you to achieve your goals or you are having to add solutions or create workarounds, then you’re probably ready to consider the switch.

Here are just some of the common issues experiences by our customers who had outgrown Sage 50:

  • We need more users and functionality to accommodate business growth
  • We have complex business processes that need customised features
  • We need the ability to track stock in multiple locations, warehouses and bins
  • We are now trading abroad and require multi-currency capabilities
  • We require batch and serial number traceability to track stock
  • Our increasing transactions and users are causing performance issues
  • We need more detailed reporting to effectively analyse business performance
  • We are looking to reduce manual processes and data entry
  • We are using multiple systems with no integration
  • We need flexible accounting periods with more control
  • We need access to more industry-specific functionality
  • We are handling large volumes of data and seeing performance issues as a result – we need an SQL database

By moving to Sage 200…

…you can take advantage of:

An increased number of users (up to 50 concurrent users and 100 web users), analysis codes, transaction analysis and excel reporting.

In addition, Sage 200 offers finance teams a three tier nominal structure utilising costs centres and departments, and deep analysis of information with advanced Business Intelligence. This enables you, as a finance leader, to become more informed and make better decisions.
