JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, 28 August 2020 – Sage, the market leader in cloud business management solutions, has clinched the award for Best Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Product for ERP MRP in the 2020 SaaS Awards.
The award was granted for Sage X3, a next-generation business management solution that forms part of Sage Business Cloud.
The SaaS Awards celebrate excellence in software and accept entries from across the world, including the US, Canada, Australasia, UK and EMEA. Equal weighting is given to all countries, and awards across any category may be split depending on the strength of submissions from different regions.
The judges selected Sage X3 from Sage South Africa for this category based on a holistic view of its strengths as an ERP/MRP solution and its role in supporting South African customers to tie together disparate business functions.
Says Pieter Bensch, Executive Vice-President at Sage Africa & Middle East: “We are delighted to receive this recognition for Sage X3 from the SaaS Awards. Many medium sized businesses across South Africa and the rest of the continent are using this platform for financial, supply chain and production management to change how they compete and grow.”
Steyn City, a lifestyle resort based in Johannesburg, is an example of a company that has implemented Sage X3 to streamline business operations.
“Sage X3 has saved us a great deal of time. Thanks to the finance team being able to input into the system, they have taken ownership of their processes which motivates them to work efficiently,” says Steyn City group financial manager, Graeme Visagie.
Darling Romery, a dairy manufacturer, based in the Western Cape, also positioned itself for the future by implementing Sage X3 as its business management solution.
“Sage X3 has enabled Darling Romery to focus on growth and efficiency for the next 20 years plus,” says Darling Group head of finance, Henk Bothma.
