Selecting a Sage Business Partner
Thursday July 2, 2015

When you are evaluating your ERP options and looking at a Sage ERP solution, you will find that unlike smaller accounting solutions, such as Sage 50 Accounts, you will need to work with a specialist Sage Business Partner to adopt your chosen change management solution.

Although initially you might find this confusing, especially if you are a Sage 50 user, it actually makes a lot of sense when you look under the covers. Sage is a large multi-national business that has to put their focus and effort into delivering products that are built towards an end user base.

With over 6 million customers around the world and over 38,000 customer interactions, it is a business model that enables you to get a personalised service through your Sage Business Partner.

Sage Business Partners focus not just on working together with an organisation to guide you through the adoption of a new Sage ERP solution but to also stick with you through the growth cycle and provide guidance and support along the way.

Benefits of working with a Sage Business Partner

- A Sage Business Partner has to go through official accreditation with Sage – With team members being trained in Implementation, support and training

- A Sage Business Partner is in direct contact with Sage and you the customer, providing the knowledge to form the overall picture.

- A Sage Business Partner can specialise in sectors and gains more specific product and industry knowledge.

- A Sage Business Partner can be local to your office location
