Why Sage 50 Users Don’t Need to Upgrade to Sage 200

All Sage 50 users have different requirements over time. At certain times due to the exceptional growth or other important factors you will need a system change. Sometimes your software system no longer meets all of your requirements. 

A common recommendation is to migrate to Sage 200 and that’s the only solution. We are going to show how you can keep using Sage 50 Accounts, save your money with avoiding expensive Sage 200 integration and being comfortable with using your old system.

Many Sage 50 Users feel obliged to upgrade to Sage 200 in order to support business growth. The top 5 reasons they chose to make the change are (according to DMC software):

1. Speed

Many Sage 50 users experience speed issues when trying to process high volumes of transactions. Sage 200 is built on Microsoft SQL database technology which means it is faster, more reliable and robust than Sage 50.

2. Stock management

Sage 50 offers limited stock management functionality. In contrast Sage 200 offers sophisticated stock capabilities, facilitating management of stock over multiple locations and provides real-time information on stock levels.

3. Batch traceability

In Sage 200 you get added flexibility, and are able to trace batch items by ‘sell by’ and ‘use by’ dates and monitor quantities.

4. Three tiered nominal structure

A three tiered nominal structure enables Sage 200 to deliver in-depth financial reports based on departments and cost centres, ideal for businesses that need better analysis.

5. Integrated CRM

In Sage 50 you have the ability to link your accounts package to Act! contact manager at a basic level. However, in Sage 200 you get added capabilities joining
