Norming for Sage 300cloud

Norming‘s Resource Manager solution provides a powerful and easy tool for tracking employee expenses, time usage, leave and overtime, purchases and much more.

Integrated with Sage 300cloud,  Resource Manager provides a web-based and mobile-based employee self-service portal (ESS), helping users simplify and streamline the documents and requisitions entry, approval and accounting process. Recently, they have released three new modules:

  • PO Receipt Requisition initiates goods receipt action from the ESS portal for approval and quality control purposes and then passes them to Sage 300 Purchase Order Receipt Entry.
  • A/P Payment Requisition allows you to send payment requests through the ESS portal. The approved payment requisitions can be transferred to Sage 300 Accounts Payable as formal payment entries.
  • Sales Quotation which is integrated with the Inventory Control and Order Entry modules, allows you to generate sales quotations for approval via the ESS portal. Once you win the deal, the sales quote used for the opportunity can be posted to the Order Entry module.

Marketing Update

Sage Enterprise Management Renaming Reminder

In May, we communicated our plans to rename Enterprise Management back to its original name of Sage X3. This followed feedback from customers and you, our partners, that the name wasn’t always appropriate or clear for customers, nor reflective of the market and segment this product serves so well. 

We have been working to rebrand assets for your use, and the following are currently available:

  • Logos
  • Naming scheme
  • Guidelines
  • FAQ

You can find these assets, as well as the partner enablement webinar that took place in July, hosted on the Partner Marketing Hub.

We are currently working to update Spotlight customer success stories and our own websites, and these will be completed in time for the deadline of 30th September, when we complete the transition back to Sage X3. We ask that all of our partners use the Sage X3 product name in all marketing and communications as of 1st October 2019. 

Should you have any question please contact Marketing or your Partner Account Manager.
