Sage 200 to improve back-office efficiencies in a virtualised environment

Business profile

AV Dawson is a well-established distribution logistics organisation, providing services across road, rail, land and sea.

The company deals with a variety of cargo types and rail freight, supporting organisations across the north of England and Scotland.

The challenge

AV Dawson identified gaps in the capabilities of its ERP software including integration with its other systems and the lack of real-time reporting. This also presented challenges for future development.

Due to a number of legacy systems which are integral to the running of the organisation, a shift to the cloud wasn’t aligned with the needs of the business.

“We rate TSG very highly in terms of knowledge and sound advice, working closely together over the years with a clear understanding of each other’s work ethic.

“The utilisation of Sage in the business has been fantastic, and the ongoing bespoke developments continue to add efficiencies and drive the business forward.”

Neil McShane, IT Manager

The solution

Thanks to our experts’ in-depth understanding of AV Dawson’s systems and requirements, TSG was able to recommend the most suitable solution to solve its specific business challenges.

TSG deployed a virtualised environment to meet the company’s requirements without moving it to the cloud; a move which wouldn’t fit AV Dawson’s requirements.

After reviewing AV Dawson’s ERP requirements and the business’ plans for future growth, TSG helped the organisation transition to Sage 200, a flexible and scalable platform which addressed key concerns out-of-the-box, with the option to add modules to further tailor the solution.

Thanks to Sage 200, AV Dawson immediately began to improve back-office functions and create efficiencies, which allows its workforce to be more productive.
