New Sage 100c and Sage 300c deliver on usability needs of SMBs
Sage North America, a leading provider of business management software and services to small and medium businesses, today announced the releases of Sage 100c and 300c, the latest additions to its portfolio of business management solutions. For SMBs currently using Sage, these new solutions allow them the freedom to adopt new technology at their own pace without disruption to their business and existing systems.
As Sage Group CEO Stephen Kelly remarked at Sage Summit 2015, Sage business management solutions offer more than traditional ERP systems. With improved usability that shortens learning curves, full integration of connected services such as payments and payroll, both Sage 100c and Sage 300c allow SMBs to focus on their business and manage everyday tasks with ease and efficiency.
“Businesses are seeing the need to evolve with the fast-changing business environment, whether accessing operational functions from their mobile devices or getting business information and analysts for decision making on the go,” said Laurie McCabe, cofounder and partner at SMB Group. “They want to use the latest technology to improve business performance but need to make this transition with minimal disruption to the business.”
Today’s SMBs need technology that is easy to use and easy to update and meets their companies’ evolving needs in a rapidly changing business environment. Following the launch of Sage X3 in the cloud, Sage 300c gives SMBs the ability to better support their increasingly mobile workforces with anywhere, anytime access to their financial data.
“Sage 100c and Sage 300c are the next steps in the Sage journey to modernize its portfolio,” said Connie Certusi, executive vice president and general manager, Sage North America. “Our customers still have a choice on how they want to leverage their software; whether it’s on-premises or hybrid or cloud, Sage will support them at their own pace to adopt new technology.”
“One business challenge Willows Way has had is providing financial information to individuals who don’t necessarily have a background in the finance industry. With Sage 300c, we now have new reporting tools that have helped provide simple yet powerful financial information to our board of directors,” said Neil Cassmeyer, director of finance and operations at Willows Way. “We’re also excited about the web screens in Sage 300c that will allow us to put together on-the-fly reports wherever we are. Web accessibility will absolutely be valuable for our broad disaster recovery plan, making the process simpler and quicker.”
As SMBs expand and grow, they require a comprehensive solution that goes beyond basic accounting software yet is still easy to use. With Sage 100c, SMBs can automate processes, connect employees and gain valuable insight into the running of their entire business. Sage 100c also provides a modernized user experience that allows SMBs to operate more efficiently while automating their work flows. With the right tools in place, SMBs are able to work collaboratively across the company and effectively solve everyday business problems.
SMBs spread across multiple locations and geographies need a solution that can bring information together from every corner of the business. With Sage 300c, SMBs maximize business insight with anytime, anywhere access to business data. Sage 300c makes it easy for SMBs to manage finances, operations, and inventory while collaborating in real time, from any location. Through increased mobility, Sage 300c users have the ability to access business data and transaction details from any device, thus allowing for improved intercompany communication and greater collaboration across the business.
Sage business partners will see expanded revenue opportunities by offering Sage 100c and Sage 300c, including:
