Sage ERP Africa has announced the availability of Sage ERP X3 version 7, the latest version of its global business management solution for midsized companies. Version 7 of Sage ERP X3 includes a range of enhancements that address African companies’ challenges of winning new customers, reducing operating costs and growing revenue.
New features include an entirely redesigned Web and mobile experience that ensures employees have access to the information they need wherever they are. “For African companies struggling with legacy systems or even manual processes, the biggest challenge is getting access to the accurate, timely data they need to make good business decisions,” says Keith Fenner, Senior Vice President Sales – Sage ERP X3 AAMEA.
“With Sage ERP X3 version 7, we solve this problem. Our new platform gives mid-sized African companies the quality information they need to better manage their businesses and grow their profits and revenues. By speeding up and simplifying the use of data, Sage ERP X3 version 7 provides them with the agility they need to take advantage of Africa’s growth boom.”
Simplifying the management of complex business processes across the organisation, Sage ERP X3 version 7 provides users with personal dashboards and intelligence tools, allowing them to monitor performance, serve customers better and be notified of events that require attention, when and where it is needed.
One recent study conducted for Sage found that midmarket companies with improved data accessibility, quality, intelligence and usability can expect 35% more incremental revenue year over year than lower-performing companies. “This is a significant boost for any business,” adds Fenner.
Fenner notes that another advantage of Sage ERP X3 version 7 comes from the fact that it allows companies to run their subsidiaries in different countries off a single instance of the software. This means that they can reduce cost of ownership and improve visibility into their finances across all their operations.
This also means that Sage ERP X3 version 7 supports companies as they expand into new markets by making it faster and affordable to business solutions get up-and-running without expensive software and infrastructure costs. With multi-currency and multi-language support, the software is perfect for companies with operations in multiple African countries.
“Sage X3 ERP version 7 helps midsized companies adopt best practices and processes in their businesses, automate processes, comply with tax and other regulations, and improve collaboration throughout their enterprises,” adds Fenner. “It also gives them the control and scalability they need as they evolve and expand in response to the dynamic African economy.”
The redesigned Sage ERP X3 version 7 also features a host of new usability improvements, including a new intuitive Web and mobile interface based on HTML5 that supports common browsers and that is highly customisable for users. Version 7 offers a variety of apps and comes with a mobility development kit, compatible with iOS, Windows Phone and most Android devices.
