Sage 200: A recipe for success
Utilize delivers a custom solution for large Food Business client
By the middle of 2015, this Food Business knew they had outgrown their Sage 50 accounts software and began to research more advanced solutions. It soon became clear that Sage 200 offered all the right ingredients for a successful upgrade. With a recognised history in solution provision, Utilize consulted extensively with its client, reviewing this desired functionality and advising on how it might be achieved in conjunction with Sage 200 software. The client was confident that Utilize could deliver the results needed and the project commenced in August 2015.
- An accounts solution to replace Sage 50
- Link with third-party logistics partner
- Custom development to manage promotional pricing
- Sage 200 Extra Financial & Commercial modules
- Cloud platform for greater flexibility and disaster recovery
- Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
In migrating to an advanced accounts solution, this client was looking for more than just another ‘off the shelf’ package when it approached Utilize with several key business issues that needed to be addressed.
The company wanted to install its new Sage 200 software in the Cloud to avoid any requirement to purchase in-house servers and to enjoy the flexibility and disaster recovery benefits that a hosted platform could offer. It also needed to identify an appropriate EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) solution provider that could operate with its new system.
Some custom development work would also be necessary to satisfy two further requirements: the ability to interface with the system operated by its third-party logistics company and a function that would help create and manage promotional price structures (such as 2 for 1 offers), which are widely used within the food distribution sector.
With a recognised history in solution provision, Utilize consulted extensively with its Client, reviewing this desired functionality and advising on how it might be achieved in conjunction with Sage 200 software. This client was confident that Utilize could deliver the results needed and the project commenced in August 2015.
