14:00 - Document Management software for Sage

Modern document management systems are affordable and able to automate your processes whilst establishing a high quality consistency to your documents. Don't miss this window into the future of your digitised accounting office
14:00 - GDPR and Making Tax Digital...are you in the know?
People associate GDPR with a date - 25th May 2018. But what happens when the dust settles and the last 'please let us stay in touch' email has been deleted? Our obligation to remain compliant is a perpetual commitment, so how can we ensure that we remain on the right side of the Information Commissioner? GDPR has been on the radar for 2 years, but many businesses left it until the last minute to act. The same is expected for Making Tax Digital. Will you be ready to submit digital tax returns by 1st April next year? If not, you'll need to start planning now. Come and learn more about what's coming, and what you can do to avoid a catastrophe!
15:00 - Dashboards for Sage 50, Sage 200 and CRM
One of the greatest frustrations for many of our accounting and CRM clients is that they have a wealth of data in their systems which they can't access in the format that they would like. Reporting tools can be clumsy and hard to understand. The latest dashboard tools change the nature of graphical reporting and unlock intelligence within the data that you already have. Dashboards can show you in an instant where your business focus should be, helping make you more competitive and profitable. Come and see them in action, and explore their possibilities in your business.
15:00 - Get the most out of your CRM system
Is yours one of the many businesses that has made an investment in CRM technology but not really felt its impact? Many UK companies spend a fortune on customer database software but fail to understand its value or implement it in such a way that it drives growth. Let us share with you the secrets of success in CRM implementation, and show you ways to unlock the power of the tools that you've already bought to help transform your business.
