Business software and services provider Sage (UK) has furthered its position in the mid market with the launch of Sage 200 v2011, its business management solution, designed to give users the freedom to choose how, where and when they access business-critical information. Highly functional, yet flexible, the latest version of the Sage 200 suite is targeted at growing businesses seeking greater integration, business insight and efficiency across their increasingly complex organisation.
In recognition of the significant commercial opportunities Sage 200 v2011 offers, over 100 of Sage's leading Business Partners including Datel, DMC software, Pinnacle, TSG, Viking Management Systems and dcs IT solutions - have already signed-up to sell the new solution. With existing Sage 200 customers committed to upgrading their solution and a number of beta customers already benefitting from the new platform, Sage and its Business Partner network are set to take advantage of significant industry demand for the intuitive business management solution.
"As businesses seek to capitalise on new opportunities for growth, we're seeing increased demand for solutions that can transform information management and provide unrivalled business insight without unnecessary complexity or costs. Integrating Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence (BI) and financial management software, the Sage 200 suite automates complex processes and provides a complete view of the organisation, empowering greater efficiencies, more informed decision making and improved operational performance," explained Steve Attwell, General Manager, Sage UK's Lower Mid Market and Channel Division.
Attwell added: "With firms increasingly focusing on growth, it comes as no surprise that so many of our Business Partners have already committed to selling the new solution and that feedback from our beta customers has been so positive".
Growing with your business
Scalable, secure and simple to use, Sage 200 v2011 offers businesses a highly customisable platform that is quick to implement and future proofed. Its new data migration tool also now makes it quicker and easier for Sage's Business Partner community to migrate existing Sage 50 customers - who seek greater functionality and flexibility - to the Sage 200 suite.
Whether in the office or on the move, Sage believes software should make it easier for people to do business. The latest version of Sage 200 builds on this commitment by giving customers the flexibility to access and input business-critical information as and when they need it, regardless of location. Thanks to its improved mobile functionality, virtualisation and browser-based support, actions such as PO authorisation, timesheets and expenses or customer interactions, can be explored on the move in real-time, via a range of handheld devices, empowering businesses to operate in the way they want.
The Sage 200 Suite also boasts a comprehensive set of vertical and functional modules, including Project Accounting, Commercials, Construction and Manufacturing that can be easily added and configured. Implemented by over 4,250 organisations in the UK, Sage 200 provides a gateway to business success for growing organisations.
