With less manual input, more efficiency and more control, Sage 200cloud allows you to focus on what’s really important – running your business.
Many Sage 50 users have upgraded their software to meet the needs of their growing business and Sage 200 or Sage 200c has been the next natural upgrade route. Monpellier will work with you so you understand the advantages Sage will bring to your company and how it can help solve your business needs and problems that you may be encountering.
There are many reasons why you may need to upgrade your Sage 50, which are:
- Company growth

- An increase need for customisation of systems and integration with other software packages
- A requirement for more depth of financial functionality such as: improved management reporting; advanced handling of foreign currency; flexible nominal code structure and accounting periods etc.

- A specialism in a vertical market
Sage 200c is built on customer feedback, bringing a focus on connected services and three key themes – connected data, customer experience and simplicity.
Let’s take a look at nine new features of Sage 200c:
One of the biggest new features in Sage 200c is the new Invoicing module. It is now quick and easy to create invoices for your customers. There is no dispatch process in the Invoicing module, so you can print and email the invoices straight away. This fast and effective invoice entry will make day-to-day processing easier.
This feature 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.
Sales Order Status
Sage 200c now offers greater detail when checking the progress of Sales Orders. This gives you greater control and insight over your Sales book. You can now see the exact state of the sales order to cover allocations, dispatches and invoiced status.
Nominal Analysis Codes
You now have the ability to store analysis codes on each nominal record, allowing for a greater depth of analysis and reporting.
You can now group together any combination of nominal accounts and report on the rolled up total budget for these accounts against the actual total balance. This can also be used to check that the budget figures that are set upon each nominal account are correct, as you can check how much of the overall combined budget has been allocated to nominal accounts.
Bank Feeds & Bank Reconciliation
You can now download your bank transactions to Sage 200c using Sage Bank Feeds. This means transactions in your bank account will now be reflected in Sage 200c. New transaction types have been added, which can be entered as adjustments directly from the reconciliation screen.
Providing greater control of your data, you can now amend Sales and Purchase Ledger transactions once they’ve been posted. A ‘Correct’ button has been added to the bottom of the screen which can be used to change the amount, Customer/Supplier or to remove allocations.
You can now hide redundant Sales and Purchase Ledger accounts. This allows for more effective reports and data analysis by omitting accounts that you no longer transact with.
Changes to Reports & Enquiry Screens
A Direct Debits & Standing Orders report has been added to the list of standard reports. In addition, there are now portrait versions of the Aged Debtors and Creditors reports.
2nd Reference has been added to the Sales and Purchase Ledger transaction enquiry screen as a default column. This means the 2nd Reference field can now be sorted on and used to find transactions.
