On The Road With Sage

ERP and CRM Systems

This year’s edition of Sage Summit was all about hitting the road. Instead of one large-scale event, like last year in Chicago, Sage decided to hit the road and visited multiple locations in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. CEO Steven Kelly cut to the chase in his presentation of Sage’s top three goals for the year:

  1. On the road with SageNew Sage. Reinvest in customers and partners to provide outstanding service.
  2. Technology. Stay on the cutting edge by utilizing the cloud and artificial intelligence.
  3. Inspire. Provide a first-class accounting software through partnerships with nonprofits to make a difference in the world through the next generations of entrepreneurs.

One of the sessions we were most excited about was the rollout of the product roadmap for Sage 300 and Sage 300c. In years past, Sage gave disclaimers about the confidentiality of these roadmaps because the details were not always concrete. This year, Sage put it all on the line. They confidently announced that they have been on track with product updates so far, so they expect to release the updates right on schedule. Here are some of the upcoming product features to look for:

August 2017 (2018.0)

  • Sage will offer a new OEM e-commerce product directly integrated into Sage 300c.

  • A new user interface for Sage 300 includes modernized screens for the desktop version of Sage 300 and a recent history addition to Sage 300c.
