Common signs that a business has outgrown Sage 50:

  • Slow, error-prone processes – As data mounts up in Sage 50, it’s not uncommon to experience time-delays and system crashes.
  • Data errors and corruption – Mounting data can also lead to data errors. Whilst data can be recovered, it can lead to system downtime, which is not only frustrating but leads to time consuming delays.
  • Struggling with off-premise access – Sage 50 is an on-premise solution and can’t be easily accessed off-premise. This can be an issue as a business grows and can hinder productivity. Remote working is also more important now than ever before and being able to access your systems anytime and anywhere is a priority.
  • Limited multi-company capabilities – Whilst it’s possible to have multiple companies in Sage 50, each company is held separately from one another. As businesses grow, they can become difficult to manage with Sage 50. 
  • Employee numbers – You have an increasing number of employees that use and need access to Sage software.
If your business is struggling with any of these issues, then migrating from Sage 50 to Sage 200 Standard will probably be the best option for you.
