Sage 200 Standard is coming very soon....



Sage 200 Standard Online is a brand new offering from Sage, which will be launched in October. We thought it would be good to give a sneak preview as to what you can expect from this fantastic new product.


So before we launch into the features and benefits (don't worry, we will give you the short version!), we thought now might be a good time to give you a quick re-cap on the existing Sage 200 product range, as you may know Sage 200 has gone through some recent re-branding. So, to avoid any confusion, here are the products:


Sage 200 Extra - this was the Sage 200 product we all know and love. It's just been re-branded and is now known as Sage 200 Extra. Sage 200 Extra is the On Premise version, which is installed onto your server. You can also purchase the software on a subscription basis, which can be useful, particuarly if you want to ease the pressure on your cash flow. Sage 200 Extra includes all of Sage 200 Extra Online modules plus more in-depth features such as CRM, Manufacturing and Business Intelligence. Sage 200 Extra can integrate with other applications or can be developed or modified to suit specific business requirements.


Sage 200 Extra Online - previously known as Sage 200 Online, this is the hosted version, which offers a depth of functionality for more complex business without having to invest in a server to run your software. In addition to the standard financial and commercial modules, Sage 200 Extra Online offers functionality such as Bill of Materials, Project Accounting and Purchase Order Authorisation. Sage 200 Extra Online can also be customised or integrated with other applications. 

Now in addition to the above, Sage 200 Standard Online is on the way. This is an online offering which sits between our Sage 50 product and Sage 200 Extra. It is a straighforward accounting solution for businesses who need an affordable online accounting solution.

Okay now the branding is clarified, let's take a quick look at some of the features and benefits of this fantastic new Sage 200 Standard.
