What's the Future of Sage 500?

Sage 500 is an excellent business management solution that suits many smaller businesses. However, new features are not being added to this software as they are to newer options such as Sage 100 and Sage X3. Should you switch to one of these options?

Your business may need new software if:

  • Your business has outgrown Sage 500
  • You want/need a cloud-based solution
  • You want solid multi-currency features
  • You want software that will have new, leading edge features added over the next few years
  • Your business model is changing; for example: expansion, new products, ecommerce, etc.
  • You have three or more third party add-ons
  • You have a number of customizations

Make sure you’re not slowing your business’ growth with software you’ve outgrown. Discuss your options with a Blytheco consultant today.
