Unified solutions for better management
Are you spending so much time trying to manage diverse systems that it’s taking time away from your core competencies?
Are you using a combination of systems like spreadsheets or custom databases to manage order, sales and inventory?
This approach is often time-consuming, making duplicate data entries, reconciling balances and figures between the systems and slows down the business process.
Managing the flow of information should not be the focus of your business. Instead, the information should flow seamlessly throughout the organisation so employees and management are empowered to make timely decisions.
Yet, most such unified systems are expensive, take a long time to implement and may have features that you do not require.
Sage 300 offers cost effective systems that are relatively quick to implement and offers you the flexibility of not only choosing the modules you need, but also the ability to scale up your solution as your business grows.
With Sage, you have a way to grow their business while minimizing risk. As your business grows, you do not have to throw out your system, buy new infrastructure or retrain your staff.
Powerful enough to manage the most complex processes while maximizing productivity and cash flow, Accounts Receivable gives you the tools you need to collect money as quickly as possible from your customers and improve your Days Sales Outstanding (DSO) ratios. With a fully integrated solution you get a better sense of short-term profits as well as long-term solvency.
