Sage X3 for F B E

Last month Techradar gave their readers a chance to cast their vote to help them narrow down the extensive longlists of the best B2B tech and accessories for the TechRadar Pro Best for Business Awards 2019.

 

On the 11 September 2019, Sage announced that they had won 2 awards from TechRadar for their business cloud software in the 2019 Best for Business Awards: Best Business Software-as-a-Service.

 

Sage Business Cloud People was awarded Best HR Solution and Sage Business Cloud Accounting was awarded Best Accounting Solution.

Sage Business Cloud People is an end-to-end HR solution that provides human resources team visibility of their global workforce while also automating administrative tasks. TechRadar point out the broad nature of the features available such as core HR, talent management, workforce management and a self-service portal making it a versatile bit of software. TechRadar say they like the fact this piece of software uses Salesforce technology and highlight that it is an easy step up for those that have used Salesforce previously.

 

TechRadar’s verdict on Sage Business Cloud Accounting is that it is capable of taming the challenges of bookkeeping with a cloud-based approach. TechRadar comment on the advantages of integration with Microsoft’s Office 365 and accountant remote access. They say that they are impressed at the feature set and its capability to create sales invoice, connect to your bank, and track what you are owed. This frees small business man-hours to shift focus to making money rather than becoming snowed under with piles of unpaid invoices.

 

Sage X3 falls under the Sage Business Cloud umbrella as it is available on cloud-based subscription. Sage X3 will allow a company to gain an advanced business management solution, streamlined business processes and detailed insights on company wide data. The savings that are made with Sage X3 will enable business growth, allow more intelligent financial decisions and enable more time to invest in more productive activities.

Yes, you read that right! Sage Enterprise Management is changing its name back to Sage X3.

This may not come as a surprise to some due to the numerous name changes since 2005. However, at Mysoft, this comes as welcome news after some confusion over the preceding change in March 2018.

Sage X3 preferred RGB for web 483 1

Sage have been busy collecting feedback from partners and customers and have concluded that the best, and most useful course of action for the future is to change the solution’s name back to Sage X3. The consumer research data illustrated that the name ‘Sage Business Cloud Enterprise Management’ was not reflective of the market or technology segment the product serves so well.

The name change avoids the need to abbreviate to Sage EM, making it simpler and clearer for both customers and partners to use the term Sage X3. At Mysoft we hope that this change will help to strengthen brand recognition among our existing customers and ensure continuity for the future. Sage and partners embrace the change, confident that the name will make it easier to use within go-to-market activity, events and lead generation marketing.

In 2001, Adonix owned the solution which was formerly named as X3. 2005 saw Sage acquire Adonix resulting in a rebrand to Sage ERP X3. Some employees at Mysoft have been working with the solution since it was originally identified in 2001 and subsequently, we are pleased to see the name going back to its roots.

Apart from referring to the software as Sage X3 now, customers will not need to take any further action to this news. Sage X3 will continue to enable your business to grow, streamlining business processes and detailing insights on company wide data.

The Sage Partner Summit in Seville was a great chance to bring together Sage Enterprise Management partners, ISV’s and delegates from the Sage community.

Summit for newsletter 483 1

It was a very busy and valuable few days, filled with insights into the Sage Enterprise Management (Sage EM) product and opportunities to meet with experts from the partner ecosystem. As a Sage EM focussed Business Partner, we were pleased to see the event return to focus purely on the enterprise level product; with insights on sales, marketing and business development focussed in the enterprise space.

Read on for our key takeaways from the event.

Enterprise Management is Sage’s Biggest Opportunity

It was brilliant to catch up with Jennifer Warawa, EVP at Sage, prior to her keynote and welcome to the event. In her speech she highlighted Sage EM as being the biggest opportunity for Sage and that Sage will now be focussing on enterprise growth. The cloud presents the biggest opportunity with cloud solutions growing at 13% whereas on premise is only growing at 2% per year. 

Biggest opportunity 483

Nick Goode, EVP at Sage, then spoke about their strategy for Sage EM and “winning with the product”. The strategic focus includes connected applications, lightning performance and customer first experiences. We were pleased to see Sage highlighting a customer first approach to the product development as well as launching “Sage Spotlight”, a programme for new customer references.

Strategic focus 483

Meeting and Greeting

The breakout sessions then provided valuable opportunities to meet with our ISV partners as well as learn about new product developments and hone our business skills. We caught up with our partners at Tangerine, as well as Datalinx, Fiscal, Prophix, Mapadoc and V1. It was interesting to see Sage addressing a key partner issue, the difficulty of recruiting in the Sage EM sphere, with the advice being to move focus to psychrometric testing rather than solely skills and experience.

Selling with Noble Purpose

Day 2 kicked off with an inspiring keynote from Lisa Earle McLeod on selling with noble purpose, “sales people selling with noble purpose outperform sales people selling against targets by 350%”. She highlighted the need to focus on how the customer’s life is going to be different by doing business with you, and that the answer to that question should always be your purpose and your story.

We then attended interesting sessions on growing your business through social media, the potential opportunity of e-Commerce in the distribution vertical and what the future of financial planning looks like. Sage also highlighted manufacturing to be a key area of growth, with Sage looking to expand the scope of their manufacturing technologies in order to keep up with the pace of advancements in the industry, such as 3D printing and bots. They will be looking at expanding the functionality of PLM and productions scheduler.

WiFi and Battery Life More Important Than Food and Shelter

The third and final day of the event started with a focus on wider technology trends, that in our lives we are now more reliant on WiFi and battery life than we are food and shelter! Phil Carter, from IDC, then went on to speak about how winning in the new enterprise market would all be about delivering cloud driven digital transformation. Artificial intelligence is an important emerging trend, with it predicted that by 2021 90% of new packaged enterprise applications will have an embedded intelligent decision architecture.

Intelligent decisions 483

All in all the event showed Sage’s commitment to Sage Enterprise Management as their flagship solution, one that can win in many verticals and one that is being constantly developed to ensure that it is keeping up with the latest technological trends. It was also encouraging to see Sage’s focus on their customers, how customers should always be treated as prospects, as well as their Partners and how important they are in contributing to the success of the Sage ecosystem.

Time for Some Fun…

As with all these events there was, of course, time for some socialising and a bit of a laugh. The Mysoft team certainly made the most of a photo booth at one of the evening events…

Sage Facts

 
The line-up for Sage Summit was star studded and the speakers certainly did not disappoint. Alan Laing hosted the key note sessions and delivered some headline grabbing facts about Sage:

Sage showed what a truly global presence their brand has and how they are keeping up with all the latest trends in social media, AI technology and cloud software. It was also great to hear Sage emphasise its dedication and thanks to their Business Partners, who contribute significantly to their success and extend the company’s customer base.

What About Sage X3?

There were also some exciting new features for Sage X3 on display at the show. Our team gained a first look at Sage X3 for the construction industry as well as Sage X3 e-Commerce.

The new product update for Sage X3, version 11, was also being demonstrated and looked great! The user interface has been improved even further and the new version looks really modern and slick. The new version of SEI, Sage Enterprise Intelligence, also looked great, providing invaluable business reports and intelligent insight into your Sage X3 data.

Meet Pegg, Your New Sage Friend! 

We were also lucky enough to come face to face with the future when we met Pegg, the accountancy robot of the future.

Pegg 483 for web

It was clear that Artificial Intelligence is the latest trend to take hold in the technology sphere and by using Pegg time consuming accountancy admin tasks will become a thing of the past. The Artificially Intelligent technology works in a similar way to Amazon’s Alexa, by simply saying “Pegg, who owes me money?” the technology can speak back and list all the companies that are due to make payment. It was very impressive to see how human like the robot version of Pegg has become already and incredible to think where this technology will take us in the years to come! Read our blog on AI here.
