If you use this software, you’ll experience benefits like:
The CRM module is a tool that makes interaction with your business, suppliers, colleagues and customers seamless.

Your brand will be able to track all sales and support activities associated with the customer.
Sage’s pricing matrix module adds flexibility, by giving you the ability to establish volume-based or time-based price breaks. You are able to specify discounts by the customers or a group of customers. Your company will be able to create unlimited discount variations (such as multiple discounts per stock item or group) and be able to override discounts on processing invoices.
With the need to track items individually, you will need to use a reliable solution like the serial number tracking module. This keeps record of who you are selling to, when the item was sold and whether it was under warranty. From the point of purchase (or sales or returns), each item is tracked and information kept. This module provides a report which showcases all transactions and all details around each of them, providing you with a holistic view and insight if required.
This add-on module of multi-warehousing ensures that you are able to keep inventory items in discrete areas or in your company warehouses. This could include keeping raw materials separate from the items you are selling, keeping track of stock samples in a separate space, the separation of obsolete items, or the tracking of demo stock. This module includes the ‘Inter-brand Transfers’ feature where you’re able to transfer items from the dispatching warehouse into the ‘goods in transit’ warehouse.
In the fixed assets module, you will be able to add an unlimited amount of assets or forms of depreciation – assisting you with controlling your fixed assets in an affordable and reliable process. These could include straight line depreciation, reducing balance, write-offs, units of usage, plants and machinery or allowance.
Using the multi-currency module enables you to process customer or supplier transactions in their preferred currency, tracking these values in both the foreign and local currency for your records. You can then view the balances and transactions on this system in the required currency at any point in time. This solution keeps a record of the exchange rates so that you are able to use the most accurate exchange rate at the time of the transaction, and know what was done previously.
The debtor’s manager tool provides the opportunity to improve debt collection processes with reports that showcase what employees need to do in order to collect these outstanding debts. You will be able to turn this department into a communication centre where all interactions can be found in one centralised place, where the reasoning behind the debt can be recorded and kept as a status.
The intelligence centre is a reporting tool that is a result of combining a leading accounting software with Microsoft® Excel, assisting with how you make decisions about your business. This is an add-on module that links to your Sage data and is beyond the standard reporting functionality. Using this report tool allows you to drag-and-drop data and formats when you construct a report, and retains the format you create – making them available for use every time you need this. You have access to real-time data which allows you to be agile and make decisions on the go.
