Take a Look at Sage 200

Sage are no longer developing the Sage 1000 ERP software (formerly Sage Line 500). Any business using this software could be missing out on the latest technological efficiencies that Sage has to offer.

Since Sage published their end-of-life dates for both Sage 1000 and Sage Line 500, they have provided patching updates every few months, however, these services have only supported Sage 1000 v3 and v4 and Sage Line 500 v7.1. Prior versions are no longer being kept up to date.

By continuing to use the solution with additional patches or external integrated modules, businesses risk becoming vulnerable to bugs and susceptible to security breaches. What’s more, paying for third party integrated modules is an expensive way to manage a business as this will involve paying various different solution providers for support.
At Onesys, we suggest migrating from Sage 1000/500 to Sage 200.

Sage 1000 is characterised by its functionality for mid to large sized businesses. It covers most aspects of business – from finance to distribution to manufacturing - however many users will never have needed to use some of the more complex functionalities that Sage 1000 has to offer. For them, migrating to Sage 200 is the logical solution.

With Sage 200 all business processes can be managed and completed using one product without any need for complex module integrations. Sage 200 provides a greater depth of integration with the Microsoft product set, cloud integration and reporting, data visibility and project functionalities – all without the need for bolt-ons.

Sage 200 is perfect for growing businesses that need a flexible business management solution that integrates finance, operations, CRM and industry specific functionalities. Sage 200 can comfortably handle up to 50 users, providing a platform your business can expand into.

At a glance, the key benefits of Sage 200 are:

  • True windows product with full integration to Excel
  • Ease of use throughout with deep search and reporting
  • More flexible nominal reporting
  • Analysis codes that allow detailed analysis of sales/expenditure
  • Seamless stock and Bill of Materials integration
