Challenge

GL Education Group was relying on two separate applications to support its financial and distribution operations. The systems were heavily customised, complicating updates, and data had to be manually transferred between the two applications.

Solution

The company reviewed both Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Sage X3 before selecting Sage X3 as its new business management solution. Sage X3 was deemed a better fit for the company and offered maximum flexibility and configurability.

Results

The monthly closing cycle is much faster, and insightful reports make it easier to analyse trends and patterns in the business. Sage x3 is easy to use, speeding adoption and ROI. Configurable dashboards deliver vital business data in easy to digest views. Integration with the company’s industry-specific CRM application was straightforward to implement, and now provides a full view of the customer relationship.
