7 Reasons Why Companies on Sage 300 Upgrade to Acumatica

7 Reasons Why Companies on Sage 300 Upgrade to Acumatica

Modernize Your Business with a Sage 300 Upgrade to Acumatica

Sage 300 (formerly Accpac) had a good run in the ERP market for decades. Unfortunately, the publisher Sage Software has not brought Sage 300 up to modern-day standards. Sage 300 is a legacy solution with limitations due to the original architecture from its release in 1994. Sage Software wants you to migrate to Sage Intacct or Sage X3, both cloud ERP options. However, Sage Intacct, for example, is not viable for most Sage 300 customers because it has limited functionality for distribution, manufacturing, retail and service companies. Sage 300 customers are migrating to a more modern solution like Acumatica Cloud ERP for many reasons outlined in this ebook. We hope the information provided below will help you on your journey to explore Sage 300 upgrade options. Click below to download our ebook "Sage 300 Users Find a Modern, Future-Proof World Awaiting with Acumatica" This ebook covers the top 7 reasons why many Sage 300 customers have moved to Acumatica.

Sage 300 Legacy WPTop 7 Reasons Sage 300 Customers Upgrade to Acumatica

Sage 300 lacks comprehensive financials, embedded CRM, complete document management, native integration with MS Office, and multi-language capabilities. Without these features, managing customers, reporting, collaborating across teams and pursuing market opportunities in new geographies is difficult. Unfortunately, all this, combined with the inability to track other key project metrics, leads to uninformed decisions and missed opportunities to improve processes, save money, and grow revenue. Here are the top 7 reasons to consider your Sage 300 upgrade options.

  1. Sage 300 Outdated Legacy Architecture
  2. Acumatica's Cloud Platform Allows You to Future-Proof Your Business
  3. Sage 300 Functional Limitations Create Barriers to Growth
  4. Acumatica Unifies Business Processes with a Comprehensive System Designed for Your Industry
  5. Industry Functionality is a Core Benefit for Acumatica Users
  6. Sage 300 Support and ISV Ecosystem is Rapidly Shrinking
  7. Acumatica Takes a Customer-First Approach

Acumatica Unifies Business Processes with a Comprehensive System Designed for Growth

Acumatica Cloud ERP includes powerful project management, comprehensive financials, role-based dashboards, document management, and robust reporting. Dashboard drill-down reports identify critical changes and trends in data to make informed real-time decisions. In addition, you can easily leverage best practices with KPIs provided in Acumatica. 

Sage 300 has excelled in serving the SMB market for over 40 years. The system has allowed your business to compete effectively. However, today there's a greater need for better collaboration, field access, reporting, and value for your annual spend on Sage 300. These reasons invite you to consider newer, more efficient, modern applications. Acumatica has the functionality to support distribution, manufacturing, retail, service, and several other industries. In addition, Acumatica has many features that are unmatched by Sage 300.

Acumatica Takes a Customer-First Approach

Sage 300s days are well publicized to be numbered - it's a legacy system with old technology and will not be updated to modern standards. Sage's R&D investments, reselling partners, and third-party developers have shifted their focus to Sage Intacct and Sage X3. Your maintenance and support dollars are being diverted to other products, with little investment in the ERP platform you use to manage your business today. Sage encourages Sage 300 users to migrate to Sage Intacct, which has inferior and missing capabilities in distribution and manufacturing, given its recent market debut (March 2020).

The appeal of modern platform technologies and robust, connected application suites has value-added resellers rounding out their software portfolio with competing products. More products mean less focus on you, the partners' existing customer base. The market appeal of cloud-native ERP systems is also a strong signal that legacy software is on borrowed time.

Meanwhile, the Acumatica licensing model, data policies, and support mechanisms are designed to meet the needs of customers, not shareholders, and are unrivaled in the industry. Acumatica's "Customer Bill of Rights" is a commitment to providing fair, respectful, and mutually advantageous policies to every customer, unique among ERP vendors.

Acumatica Enables Companies to Grow and Scale Successfully and Profitably

Acumatica Cloud ERP is the choice for growing companies that want to run their businesses effectively and gain operational efficiencies for profitability and growth. It includes certified payroll, project management, compliance management, robust financials with job cost accounting, document management, industry reporting, and native CRM.

Sage has turned its attention to its cloud-based portfolio. Reinforcement that the time is now to consider modern solutions to help your business grow. Eliminate data silos, capture data faster, and increase collaboration between teams working at home, in the field and office. 

Designed for mobile accessibility anytime, anywhere, on any device, Acumatica provides the tools to navigate your complex business needs and thrive in the new digital economy.

About Clients First

Business software should increase productivity, improve profitability, and be easy for staff to use. Most of today's ERP solutions are good at finance and have horizontal niches for distribution, manufacturing, maintenance, repair, and overhaul for aviation and heavy equipment. This makes searching for a software solution more about what the implementation partner can do so you can use the system to its full potential. That is why Clients First is not a software company. We're a trusted business solutions and services company.
