What is Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)?

ERP is a powerful business software that streamlines and automates business processes while offering valuable insights and internal controls. It operates through a centralised database that collects inputs from various departments such as accounting, manufacturing, supply chain management, sales, marketing, and human resources (HR).

By implementing ERP systems, businesses can centralise their data, enhance cross-departmental visibility and enable efficient analysis. These systems also help resolve data conflicts, driving process improvements. Ultimately, this leads to cost savings and improved productivity, as employees spend less time searching for the information they need.

Are you planning on investing in a new ERP system or upgrading the one you have?

It goes without saying, that selecting the right ERP system is crucial. It’s a huge investment in time and money and your ERP system should last many years, growing and flexing with your company.

Sage X3 research resources – migrations and upgrades

Many businesses find as they grow, their existing Sage solution can no longer keep up and this triggers the need for a more advanced ERP system, like Sage X3.

With Sage 500 and Sage 1000 reaching end-of-support in December 2024, you may be considering options. Perhaps you are using Sage 200 and your business is expanding and the solution no longer supports your business needs. Whatever the reason, we can support your digital transformation journey.

As Sage 50/200/300/500/1000 are different systems from Sage X3, there is no direct migration or upgrade path. This means you must treat the move from one of these systems as a new ERP implementation. Dive into our Sage X3 resources below to kick-start your journey to moving to Sage X3.
