Sage Event, envisage this...

Posted by Sinead Hayes on Jun 14, 2016 2:22:02 PM

Sage Business Partner Event, at the AVIVA stadium, Dublin

Just in case you missed it, here's a quick synopsis of our "envisage this" event which took place last Wednesday 8th of June at the AVIVA stadium.

The day started early for the Envisage Team who arrived at the AVIVA stadium bright and early, all sporting beautiful pink polo shirts, modelled above two of our Director's, Peter Bergin and Ray Ryan. 


Envisage this "kicked off" around 8.45 with some mingling, some tea/coffee and some quick bites. Peter Bergin, our MD then "got the ball rolling" just after 9am with a jam-packed agenda to follow.


Zoë from Draycir was first up and gave us a quick run through of the time and cost-saving solutions available from Draycir, including Credit Hound (Credit Control automation software), Spindle Professional (professional looking document distribution software) and Spindle Document Management (helping to reduce the piles of paper around the office). For more information and to watch some quick videos, visit:

Sarah from Sicon then gave us a brief overview of the WAP solution, in particular timesheets, expenses, purchase invoices and purchase requisitions. Sarah explained how the WAP solution for Sage 200 could help organisations to keep tighter control of their costs by introducing authorisation rules and processes. She also touched on how the WAP solution ties in perfectly with Sage 200 Project Accounting.


Eddie from Fieldmotion was next up and presented an introduction to Fieldmotion, an integrated solution for Sage 200 which has been designed to help companies with field service workers to get their jobs done faster and more profitably.


This was followed by an overview of easydd by David Burke. easydd is our own direct debit solution for Sage 50 and Sage 200. 


Sarah was back up to present the Sage 200 Cash Flow Manager - designed to give Sage 200 users advanced functionality to help manage cash flows, forecasts and budgets. Here's a quick video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acTf4ZHUokk&feature=youtu.be


We had a quick coffee break before resuming with Project Accounting for Sage 200, presented by Peter Bergin. Here's a video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=_TwETRsUP30


Peter Day from Sage then took to the stage to share with us more information about Sales, Marketing and Service for Sage 200 as well as the fantastic brand new connector for Sage 200. This new connector offers Sage 200 users a completely integrated solution giving complete visibility of what's happening across the entire business, not just in the finance office!


Our guest speaker from CrowleysDFK, Colette Nagle gave an insightful presentation into the outsourced services provided by her company. 


And still only 11.30 am! We had quite a bit to go after the coffee break and so Jade from Panintelligence wasted no time in presenting their brilliant reporting and analysis tool designed to work with Sage 200, Sales, Marketing and Service and other external databases. 

Above are a few pics from the day...

Project Accounting v Excel

Posted by Sinead Hayes on May 23, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Which one is better a Project Accounting System or Excel?

We are big fans of Project Accounting and having proper systems in place for Project Managers to manage everything project-related, but the age-old debate of whether Excel is in fact a better tool continues. Some organisations just LOVE Excel, not just for Project Accounting either, but for everything!
