Your core Sage 200 modules are Sage 200 Financials and Sage 200 Commercials. Financials covers your basic accounting functionality, it holds your General Ledger, Sales Ledger, Purchase Ledger, and Cash Book. This is your bread and butter Sage 200, you can build up from here. Sage 200 Commercials branches out into Sales Order Processing, Purchase Order Processing and Stock. As well as Sage’s modules, there is also a raft of third-party add-on’s that are more specialist.

What will my demo consist of?
We genuinely believe that the best way for you to decide what solution is right for you is to see it in action. We don’t like a ‘one-size fits all’, and much prefer individual specialist software demonstrations. This gives you the chance to really explore the software as it would work for you. Our demos are led by a partnership of one of our Sales Consultants & an experienced Solution Architect. By bringing in our Solution Designers right from the very start, we are able to get the best view of your business structure, processes, and requirements. Our Sales Consultants are the specialist on all things commercial – when it comes to pricing and licensing, these are the guys you want to speak to. The Solution Architects role is to provide you with in-depth technical systems knowledge. They bring your conceptual processes to life within Sage 200. Having our Solution Architects involved in the demonstrations means you are guaranteed not to be sold a pipe dream. They are going to be the person implementing Sage 200!
How can I get a demo?
If you would like to see Sage 200 in action, get in touch with our team. We will be happy to organise a totally free, no-obligation demo of the software for you. The first step will be for us to have a quick chat about what you are looking for in an accounting solution as well as your key motivators for moving. Next, the team will try to find a convenient time for our consultant to take you on a tour of what Sage 200 has to offer.
How will it be delivered?
We like to get to know our customers so that we know what the right solution is for you, so ideally we will do this out onsite with you. We find a face to face demo is the perfect way for you to explore the software. However, if for whatever reason a face to face meeting is not possible we will host a personal one on one webinar demo for you. This is a great way to get lots of people involved in the demonstration as they can connect in from anywhere!
No matter where in your Sage 200 journey you are, a demo is a great way to find out more about the system’s capabilities and how it might benefit your business.
