This week Sage has launched the highly anticipated Sage 200 2016 release. Built in line with customer feedback the new Sage 200 boasts features which help its users to get paid faster.
Launched on 23rd May 2016, the new Sage 200 introduced features to help it’s users improve cash flow and get paid faster. Through integration with Sage Payments* and Sage Pay, Sage 200 users can now streamline payment processes, for improved control and time savings.
John Hinckley, Accounts Product Manager, at Xperience Group comments, “The 2016 edition builds on the 2015 release, where Sage 200 was completely re-engineered. The latest version includes lots of enhancements, which enable productivity and efficiency improvements. For existing users, I think the real value will come from the new Sage 200 CRM connector. Previously, the synchronisation between the financials and the CRM component ran on a schedule. With the new release, the synchronisation is in real time, which enables greater efficiency and better leverage of the powerful Sales, Marketing and Service features.”
Newly renamed Sage 200 Sales, Marketing and Service, the Sage CRM module now integrates seamlessly with Sage 200, enabling users to manage prospects and customers effectively, both pre- and post-sale. With tighter integration it is possible to increase customer satisfaction. With all users accessing a single version of the truth, across all departments and touch points, it is possible to deliver improved customer service levels, utilising real time customer information.
In addition to the headline features for this release, there are a great number of usability enhancements spanning payment, pricing, stock, reconciliation, reporting and returns. The sum of these changes results in an enriched user experience, while delivering productivity boosting tools, helping its users to save time and be more effective.
