Thursday April 5, 2018

Whatever your job role, whatever your industry, Sage offers ERP solutions to fit all business needs. Whether it's collating customer data through a CRM, tracking and processing sales orders, or analysing key financial metrics, Sage has the tools to streamline your business processes.

There are several options and modules from Sage to choose from, and if you find yourself at the beginning of your ERP software  journey, wondering what solution is going to be the best fit for your business, then read on.

In this blog post, we'll cover the three of the most popular Sage ERP solutions and related products, Sage 300, Sage 200 and Sage CRM.

Sage 300

Sage 300 is one of the most popular enterprise management and accounting solutions delivered by Sage. Offering a whole host of attractive features and benefits for businesses looking to integrate and streamline their processes.

There are several modules within the Sage 300 offering, including: Financials, Stock, Project and Job Costing, Reporting, International ERP and CRM. Not only this but because Oakley ERP partner with other leading software development companies, there are over 500 additional modules based on our client’s requirements, including Electronic Funds Transfer, Security and Compliance with Audit Logger, Inter-Entity Transactions and VATpac (developed by Oakley ERP) for UK VAT Reporting.

Who is it for?

Sage 300 is perfect for small to medium-sized and growing businesses, looking for the flexibility to bolt-on additional modules at their convenience.

When comparing to other available Sage solutions you’ll find the biggest difference is that Sage 300 is a global product, meaning the software complies with international accounting practices set out in GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Practice). Therefore, if your business operates globally, then this could be the right solution for you.

Sage 200

Sage 200 is another popular ERP solution. Helping businesses excel in a range of key activities by integrating departments, increasing productivity and helping push forward growth.

As with Sage 300, there are several modules within Sage 200, including Financials, Commercials, Project Accounting and Reporting.

Oakley ERP’s Sage development partner network allows access to a range of optional modules, including Sage 200 HR & Payroll, Sage 200 Credit Hound, Cash flow Manager and Audit Logger.

Who is it for?

The target market for Sage 200 is also small to medium-sized businesses. However, Sage 200 is a Sage UK product and has been designed with predominantly UK businesses in mind, but that's not to say businesses outside of the UK do not use the product so it’s worth keeping in mind if you’re a global organisation.

Sage CRM

Sage CRM is a Customer Relationship Management system, boasting impressive technical features that play a key role in the communications and data tracking within businesses.

Whether analysing detailed profit data on your customers, reviewing contact history or snapshotting your full lead cycle, Sage CRM can help facilitate the flow of vital information around your organisation.

Sage CRM is available as a stand-alone option or as an integrated solution with Sage 50, Sage 200 CRM and Sage 300 CRM.

Who is it for?

Sage CRM is a great option for when you know your business needs a CRM system, the great thing about Sage CRM is that you can integrate additional solutions further down the line. So, if you're unsure whether you need a full ERP right now, Sage CRM is a good starting point.
