Sage 50 to Sage 200cloud Upgrade

Why would you consider upgrading from Sage 50cloud to Sage 200cloud?

Sage 50cloud is a great software product that has been around for over twenty years. Previously known as Sage Sterling, it’s a tried and tested popular solution for small businesses.

There are lots of reasons why organisations may decide to upgrade to Sage 200cloud. Typically, growth is a key driver for this decision. More users, transactions, warehouses, companies, complexities, internal departments, internal controls and more integration requirements. Having lots of manual processes and spreadsheets can also be a good indicator that it might be time to upgrade.

Sage 50cloud typically suits smaller businesses where requirements are simple and there are a small number of users and relatively low transaction volumes. It is also primarily used within the finance department.


Some Quick Questions to help you figure out whether you have outgrown Sage 50cloud or not:

Would it be advantageous for different departments to access the same common platform e.g. sales, marketing, finance, warehouse, purchasing, management, procurement etc?
Would you consider your business processes to be largely manual or automated?
Is Stock Traceability (batch/serial numbers) a requirement for your business?
How many different spreadsheets are currently in use across all departments?
Do you need Financial Reports broken down by Cost Centre and Department?
Do you have mobile teams and are they connected to your internal systems remotely?
Do you have multiple companies with different base currencies?
Do you have specific/custom requirements that can’t be addressed within Sage 50cloud?
Are you a distribution business with a requirement to manage stock in more than one location?
How much time is spent compiling reports?
Do you have the information you need, when you need it?
Do you plan to grow but internal systems are holding you back?
