One thing that's really key for me is people. As I mentioned before, I've always found the people at Sage extremely helpful, extremely friendly, and extremely willing to make it work for us. I think that resonates with people here. In fact, I can't emphasise enough how important that is. Having a team there that want to work with you and help you get the most out of the software is fantastic.

Sage Business Cloud X3 (Sage X3 for short) is software for mid-to-large businesses who are looking to manage their key business activities in one simple, intuitive system:
Accounting and financials
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
Business intelligence and reporting
And many more functions, customisable to your needs
Sage X3 connects your business information in a simple, clear, easy-to-use system, which you can manage through your PC, laptop, mobile, or tablet.
Sage X3 is a type of software called “Enterprise Resource Planning” (ERP), which is a unified system for coordinating a business’s key activities. The difference between Sage X3 and most ERP is Sage X3 is faster, simpler to use, easier to deploy, and more flexible to your changing needs.
In Paris in 1997, a company named Adonix used the codename "X" to refer to a new ERP product they were developing. The product was version 3 of their ERP software, and they ended up naming it “Adonix X3”.
Sage purchased Adonix in 2005 and invested heavily in developing the software. Sage X3 was born. The solution continues to flourish with ever-growing functionality, cutting edge design, advanced features and cloud functionality.
Pricing for Sage X3 depends on user count, functionality required, subscription type, and hosting needs, among other factors.
There is a purchase cost, an implementation cost, and a support fee. You can also have our developers modify the Sage X3 code (which comes with a fee) to accommodate unique requests for specific features.
Every charge will be explicitly explained in writing and in discussion with you. There are no hidden costs and never will be.
For a shorter overview you can take a product tour here. The product tour gives you a video overview of the key features and how they work, including how to personalise your workspace, handle common tasks, and solve role-specific challenges.
The cloud is a name for types of computers (servers) which are stored remotely rather than in your own in-house data centre. These remote servers give you access to software and data through the internet.
It’s called the “cloud” because when programmers were drawing up the original network diagrams, they drew circles around the icons for computers. When these computer icons were clustered together, the overlapping circles looked like clouds.
Sage X3 runs on desktop or laptop (including Apple Mac, Windows, and Linux), smartphones (iPhone, Android phones, and Windows phones), and tablets (iPad, Android tablet, and Microsoft Surfaces). The software works on all popular browsers:
Sage X3 works equally well both in Web and client-server architecture, with Oracle or Microsoft SQL servers.

Implementation can take anywhere from 40 to 120 business days depending on the complexity of your operation’s needs. Users can continue to work as normal during the installation of Sage X3.
Your implementation will be managed by a dedicated Project Manager and your team trained by specialist Sage X3 Consultants, all with extensive real-world business experience.
We take the time to fully scope your requirements and conduct training in a collaborative workshop environment. When you're ready, our team will help you migrate your data to Sage X3 at a pace that suits you.
Virtually any external or custom-built systems can be integrated with Sage X3, including both cloud-based and on-premises applications.
You can choose from a wide range of add-on applications (by both Sage and our partners), including Microsoft Office add-ons for Excel, Word and PowerPoint. Applications are available for advanced business intelligence (BI) and analytics, document management, payments, sales, e-commerce, and much more.
We use Sage X3 ourselves to manage spend and budgets across Sage globally.

Most ERP solutions are much too complicated, unwieldy and unsuitable for all but the largest companies.
The 3 fundamental advantages of Sage X3 are its simplicity, flexibility, and speed. Sage X3 provides advantages over traditional legacy ERP systems in a number of ways:
Poorly connected systems separating operations, financial reporting, and other key data.
Real-time data flows seamlessly across the entire business. Connect information from every department, every employee, and every process across your entire business.
Expensive, slow, complicated implementation.
A modernised, flexible solution with dramatically reduced time and costs of implementation.
Information is out of date and inconsistent, reducing insight and hindering decision making.
Get crystal clear visibility into performance, costs, dependencies, subcontractors, financials, suppliers, customer orders, resources, transactions, business analytics, and other critical data.
Complex and time-consuming to learn.
An intuitive interface in a familiar web browser environment (familiar navigation, button styles, drag and drop features), making Sage X3 easy to learn and use. New hires can get up to speed much faster.
Slow, cumbersome, poorly integrated systems, making it harder to scale as the global economy grows.
Scalable, future-proofed, and accommodates a virtually unlimited capacity to grow. Sage X3 adapts rapidly to your exact requirements today and long into the future.
Desktop-focused applications, which limit your ability to work from elsewhere than your desk
Runs smoothly on any PC, laptop, smartphone, and tablet. Whether at the office, on the road, or working from home, your team can access the data they need and update information at any time.
Manually re-keying data across systems, dealing with human error, and wasting time that could be spent on higher-value tasks.
Streamlined, automated data flow across your business, updated in real time and consistent across the entire system. You never need to waste time re-entering data or calling back to the office for information.
Hindered flow of communication causing delays and frustrated employees.
A more intuitive, efficient interface, allowing for more streamlined communication. Everything your teams need to pull together towards shared objectives, to quickly get the information they need, and to take advantage of modernised software to reduce complexity.
