With mobile deployment, integrated CRM, Business Intelligence and financials, Sage 200 v2011 transforms levels of accessibility, information management and business insight

Newcastle, 25 May 2011 – Business software and services provider Sage (UK) Limited today furthered its position in the mid market with the launch of Sage 200 v2011, its industry-leading business management solution, designed to give users the freedom to choose how, where and when they access business-critical information. Highly functional, yet flexible, Sage 200 v2011 offers an ideal platform for growing businesses seeking greater integration, business insight and efficiency across their increasingly complex organisation.

By integrating Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Business Intelligence (BI) and financial management software, the Sage 200 Suite automates complex processes and provides a complete view of the organisation – from finance through to sales, supply and customer service – empowering greater efficiencies, more informed decision making and improved operational performance. With its flexible report designer, intuitive dashboards and integrated CRM and Business Intelligence, the new suite transforms information management, providing unrivalled business and customer insight without unnecessary complexity or costs.

“By connecting the most relevant information from across the business in real-time, Sage 200 v2011 is a powerful business tool that plays a fundamental role in driving collaboration, facilitating joined-up thinking and enabling greater performance across a business,” explained Steve Attwell, General Manager, Sage’s Lower Mid Market & Channel Division.

Growing with your business
The Sage 200 Suite defines the moment when a growing business seeks more integration and efficiency across its increasingly complex organisation and wants the flexibility and freedom to choose how their solution evolves with their business. Scalable, secure and simple to use, Sage 200 v2011 offers businesses a customisable platform that is quick to implement and future proofed.

Staying connected
Whether in the office or on the move, Sage believes software should make it easier for people to do business. The latest version of Sage 200 builds on this commitment by giving customers the flexibility to access and input to business-critical information as and when they need it, regardless of location. Thanks to its improved mobile functionality, virtualisation and browser-based support, actions such as PO authorisation, timesheets and expenses or customer interactions, can be explored on the move in real-time, via a range of handheld devices, empowering businesses to operate in the way they want.

“In today’s fast-paced business environment, access to accurate, up-to-date information in the field can make the difference between converting a sale and losing one. With integrated CRM and mobile access on BlackBerry and Apple devices, Sage 200 v2011 makes it easier than ever for business professionals to join up all aspects of their organisation and streamline financial and operational processes to identify opportunities for innovation, productivity and growth and ensure they are capitalised on,” explained Sage’s Steve Attwell.

The Sage 200 Suite also boasts a comprehensive set of vertical and functional modules, including Project Accounting, Commercials, Construction and Manufacturing that can be easily added and configured. Implemented by over 4,250 organisations in the UK, the Sage 200 Suite provides an unrivalled gateway to business success for growing organisations.
