How do you know when you've outgrown your Sage 50 software?

Sage 50 is designed for start-ups and small businesses looking to grow. For larger organisations Sage 50 does have its limitations which can impede growth. Is it time to boost your business with Sage 200c professional?

Sage 50 is widely used by small to large businesses across the UK, mainly due to its rich functionality and the fact that it's backed by recommendations from accountants. The software was the brainchild of TGS’s owner Graham Wylie, who launched the product originally known as Sage Sterling back in the early 90s. Since then there have been significant improvements to the user interface, new functionalities and a change to a subscription-only pricing model.

One of the drawbacks of Sage 50 is the back-end database it uses to store the information, which is often susceptible to data corruption on datasets with large volumes of transactions. This can cause major downtime for businesses that have suffered data corruption, resulting in data being sent to Sage for repair, whilst all processing is put on hold until it’s returned fixed.

Whilst the software is feature-rich it does have limitations in certain key areas which leaves the business with workarounds, in Excel or replacing the software with a solution more suitable to its needs. This is where Sage 200c Professional come in.

Sage 200c Professional fills the gaps not only in terms of functionality, it also resolves the data corruption and performance issues as it’s built for the scalable industry-leading Microsoft SQL platform.
