How to know you are ready to upgrade from Sage 50 to Sage 200

Going from Sage 50 Accounts to Sage 200 is the natural progression for many businesses. The two pieces of software have similar basic functionalities, however, Sage 200 is a modular based system and has far greater capabilities than Sage 50.

For smaller companies with only basic accounts needs, Sage 50 is the perfect fit. If you need basic software functionality to manage your cash flow, income, expenses and payments, create professional invoices and quotes and have powerful reporting and dashboards, then Sage 50 will work well for you. However, if you are finding that as your business is growing, Sage 50 is facing limitations, you may be outgrowing the system and need greater accounts control for your growing business.

Common triggers for Sage 50 to Sage 200 migration:

• Growth of company
• Business processes becoming more complex
• More in-depth functionality required in:
– Business Intelligence and Management Reporting
– Advanced handling of foreign currency
– Stock control in multiple warehouses
– Batch or serial number processing
– Greater control over financial periods
– Greater choice of CRM functionality
– An increased need of customisation of systems
– An industry specialism

We understand that your business is constantly evolving. As you change and grow – you need your software to do the same to ensure it is meeting all of your requirements. The natural progression for Sage 50 users who have maximised the capacity of their software is to migrate to Sage 200 giving you a far more powerful solution.
