What’s new with Sage 200?
We wanted to keep you up to date with what’s new and upcoming with Sage 200.
We sat down with one of our highly skilled Business Software Consultants, Nick Bevan, to talk all things Sage and to get the low down on what to expect from Sage 200c.
What is Sage 200c?
Sage 200c is an accounting software solution designed for small to medium enterprises, no matter what their industry.
The solution provides a suite of different modules to cater for business processes including accounting and Supply Chain and in addition, can accommodate much more complex requirements that are needed for Manufacturing, Project Accounting, CRM and Business Intelligence.
What are the differences between Sage 200 and Sage 200c?
Sage 200c adds to the functionality that Sage 200 currently has, but it also incorporates some new functionality: Office 365 integration such as Sage Contact with Outlook and document storage using either One Drive or Dropbox; Purchase Requisition and Authorisation module; new Invoicing module; Bank Feeds to allow bank transactions to be downloaded and automatically added into Sage 200c without rekeying; and Sage Payments module.
Can you use Sage 200c on-premise and on the cloud? Which is better/recommended?
With Sage 200c, it can either be provided on-premise or hosted on a data centre and accessed via the cloud. As far as which is recommended, it is all dependent on the customer requirements and their business needs as to which method they require to access the software solution.
Will the data that is currently in Sage 200 easily transfer over to Sage 200c?
Yes, data can be easily migrated from currently supported versions of Sage 200 to Sage 200c. For those with earlier versions of Sage 200, Sage 50 and other Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, we can provide a service to migrate any data into Sage 200c.
Can Sage 200c run on Apple and Windows?
Sage 200c is natively installed on a Windows environment, however, it can be accessed on Apple devices by either using Microsoft Remote Desktop or Virtual Desktops.
Sage 200c will require integration on a Windows server using an SQL server to manage the accounting databases.
Do you need a strong internet connection to use the features of Sage 200c?
No, a strong internet connection is not required to use the features of Sage 200c, unless you require remote access to run Sage 200c, then a stable internet connection would be required.
Are there any new modules available in Sage 200c?
Yes, the new modules are Purchase Requisition and Invoicing.
The Purchase Requisitions module acts as a prior step to the creation of a Purchase Order. It provides an easy way to enter requisitions for either stock or free text items, regardless of whether you know the supplier or stock codes. A new rule means that purchase orders will only be raised if the requisition has been authorised.
The Invoicing module is a brand-new module that makes it simple to create and send invoices to your customers. A new data entry form makes it simple and quick to enter the data. Depending on your company’s process, you can add stock items or free text. With no dispatch process, you can print and email the invoices straight away and view all of your invoices and credit notes in one list. This fast and effective invoice entry will make day-to-day processing easier.
What management areas does Sage 200c have?
Sage 200c has a central System Administration area that allows the creation and management of Companies, Users, Addons, and Access Rights.
Within Sage 200c you are able to manage the accounting system per company and within this, configure Accounting Periods, Currency and Co-Specific Parameters.
Does Sage 200c cover any specific industries, such as manufacturing?
Sage 200c caters for a variety of different industry sectors, which can be accommodated by adding the following modules: Manufacturing; Bill of Materials; and Project Accounting.
There are no additional modules that can be added to Sage 200c for other verticals, such as; Service Management, Construction, Warehousing and Hire Management.
How often do I have to update Sage 200c?
Ideally, Sage 200c should be updated at least once a year, to ensure that any new functionalities and enhancements are added to the software solution.
Doing this will allow the product to be easier to maintain and support in the long run.
Is there a large amount of downtime needed when upgrading from Sage 200 to Sage 200c?
Any upgrades can be planned ahead of time to minimise the downtime that is required with the upgrade. The downtime can usually be reduced by keeping the solution updated when new releases are provided.
For downtime due to upgrades, we usually expect a minimum of half a day to a whole day.
Why should businesses upgrade from Sage 50 or Sage 200 to Sage 200c?
Businesses should upgrade to either Sage 200c when their business requirements and needs have changed, or when they require the functionality that isn’t provided by Sage 50.
Common reasons that many businesses upgrade to Sage 200c are as follows; Multi Company and Consolidation; Complex Nominal Structure to accommodate Cost Centres and departments; Foreign Currency requirements; Complex Stock that needs to be held in Multiple Locations and all Traceability.
The above are just a handful of examples. If Sage 200c matches to a business’ requirements and needs, then it would be wise to consider implementing Sage 200c as your accounting software solution.
