Sage X3 Implementation Success in 5 Simple Steps

Sage X3 Consultant Reviews How to Ensure a Successful Sage X3 Implementation

As Sage consultants with over 30 years of experience and hundreds of happy clients, it’s our pleasure to share a few tips for a successful Sage X3 implementation. If you are considering migrating to Sage X3, there is some preparation you can be doing well before the project starts. Since Sage X3 has such robust functionality and flexibility, it’s possible to eliminate the need for third-party add-ons and any other outside software. We hope you find these 5 tips to get the most benefit from the power of Sage X3 helpful. There is so much to take advantage of with all the new capabilities and technologies, so please be sure to engage with a Sage X3 consultant early on to help with your evaluation.

5 Tips for a Successful Sage X3 Implementation

1. Review and Reorganize Master Data Files
Before migration, review and evaluate how you define your existing account structures. Since Sage X3 uses dimensional accounting principles instead of predefined General Ledger Account Segment values, you will want to define your Chart of Accounts, natural accounts, and segment requirements to align with Sage X3 capabilities. This way, you design and arrange account structures to optimize transactional support and financial reporting. At the same time, make sure to cleanse the data in your customer, vendor, and item records to avoid costly errors and wasted time.
2. Capture Dashboards and Key Company Reports
Sage X3 allows you to automate your manual reports, key performance indicators, executive PowerPoint presentations, and other analytics that drive business decisions. So, take the time to gather the processes you do manually turn them into automated dashboards and reporting tools in X3.
3. Document Workflows and Events
Sage X3 incorporates visual process flow diagrams that serve as an intuitive guide to walk users through the X3 solution and operational workflow tasks. By documenting your workflows and events, you can create easy-to-understand depictions of any workflow. They can be anything from easy Masterfile maintenance to complex workflows, such as your order-to-cash and design-to-production processes. X3 allows you to configure workflows to mimic the specific ways your organization operates.
4. Define User Roles, Responsibilities, and Profiles
Sage X3 offers several different types of user licenses at different price points. To maintain the lowest cost, you need to define your users, their roles, and their profiles to determine who requires the Full User, Operational User, or Data Collection User license. Not only will defining users save you time and money, it will also help you establish security rights and permissions to safeguard your organization’s confidential data and unique processes.
5. Learn More About Sage X3
Your Sage Business Care Plan includes access to helpful content within Sage sites, including the Sage X3 Knowledgebase, Sage City, and Sage University. We can help you establish access to the valuable tools and information within these sites, including pre-recorded training sessions, lunch & learn webinars, user guides, and more. This information services the full spectrum of X3 capabilities and helps ensure your migration goes as smoothly as possible.
