When considering the purchase or upgrade of Sage 200, a key consideration is always the compatibility of your IT infrastructure to run the software.
Advances in physical hardware and the associated Microsoft technologies (Server, SQL, Windows, Office etc) is relentless and can make progressing your business software much more expensive than it needs to be.
In addition, working from anywhere and on any device is now a real requirement for most businesses. Whether you are at home, on holiday or travelling between meetings, having the flexibility to work remotely is no longer a benefit or a nice to have. It is a must have.
Whilst Sage offer an online version of Sage 200, which is an excellent solution for companies with low user counts and simple requirements, this does not yet include all the modules and is limited in its ability to integrate with other systems, particularly the wide array of third party add-ons available to all on premise Sage 200 users. In addition, for existing Sage 200 users, there is currently no formal commercial model to transition you into the subscription world of online.
