You are reading this article because you know your business has possibly outgrown Sage 50 and you’re seeking to find a better way of managing business processes and achieving financial control.

So, how do you know if your Sage 50 software really is holding you back from growth? Although it is a useful tool for start-ups and small businesses, Sage 50 is only intended to establish a solid foundation. As your business begins to grow, Sage 50 will suffer more as a result.

By acknowledging the limitations and recognising that your business has possibly outgrown Sage 50, you have taken the first step to securing your business growth. Many companies focus on growing their business but fail to simultaneously scale their tools of operation. In doing so, once their business has reached a certain size, they start experiencing inefficiencies which can ultimately lead to severe consequences.

These consequences can include a lack of integration between departments, taking a long time to produce reports (which are then out of date), and having inaccurate information due to the fact that one part of the organisation is unaware about another part’s activities or situation.

This is a common scenario. Many small businesses are faced with this challenge. And when you are, it is time to give your business the right software and services to grow.

ere are 5 Signs You’ve Outgrown Sage 50

  • Hit maximum customers, vendors, or inventory items
  • Inefficient workflows and manual workarounds
  • Need more advanced accounting and reporting
    • No robust forecasting/budgeting
    • No project cost accounting
    • Can’t customize reports and dashboards
    • Costly to build workarounds
  • Difficulty managing multiple entities or locations
    • Hard to handle multiple businesses, entities, locations
    • Better support needed for complex structures
  • Lack of scalability and integration
    • Bottlenecks in order processing, inventory, billing, etc.
    • Tight CRM and ecommerce integration limited
    • Lack flexibility to scale up

When you’re making a big change in your business, all that really matters is how it will affect your bottom line. So this brings us to one of the main reasons why businesses who have outgrown Sage 50 make the leap to SAP Business One.

SAP Business One is designed specifically for SME’s and keeps in mind the changing needs of businesses today, and its powerful yet easy-to-use tools can help you leapfrog growth levels and stay relevant in today’s fast-paced world.

SAP Business One turns inaccurate financial data into useful data and eliminates errors in manual input and the duplication of data. There’s no guesswork required, and localized currency is up to date, letting you focus on what matters most: growing your business.

You can be forgiven for thinking that SAP Business One (B1) is just another ERP system. It is in fact, a suite of integrated business applications with accounting, procurement, sales and distribution processes and financials – a lot like those from Oracle, Microsoft, and other large vendors.

The difference is in the approach. Where many ERP systems strive to encompass everything, SAP Business One sets out to be a great system of record for each business process – highly efficient and user-friendly, and easy to connect with other systems.

With SAP Business One your business can truly become integrated – easy to manage, agile and connected. And that’s why companies like yours who have outgrown Sage 50 are using SAP Business One as we speak.
