Practice the go-live process before your Sage X3 upgrade


RKL eSolutions has completed over one hundred Sage X3 upgrades. Recently, we started using the XTech-Upgrade tool to migrate clients to the most current versions of Sage X3. The upgrade utility was developed by X-Techarts, a Sage ISV partner, in 2018. More than 200 upgrade projects have already been performed using XTech-upgrade tools and methodology. In North-America XTech-Upgrade is distributed by Rebel-Lyon, company led by Danielle Holt, former Director of product management at Sage.

Wouldn’t you like to practice the go-live process before your upgrade?

The first week on a new version of software can be chaotic. With the XTech-Upgrade tool, practice scenarios don’t have to be constrained to two dry runs. Not only does XTech-Upgrade allow users multiple practice sessions, it can reduce a data migration project that would have taken days to several hours. XTech-Upgrade enabled Yakima Chief Hops to go live in only a few hours, delivering a smooth transition from version to version, while providing maximum time for data scrubbing, field preparation, and end-user training.

XTech-Upgrade Benefits

  • 30 mins. - run financials and stock for 3 companies
  • 30 mins. - extract data changes
  • 3 hours - data integration and folder refresh
  • 1 hour - data validation

Read more from the XTech blog Practice Makes Perfect on why Yakima Chief Hops said “We will never do another migration without this tool…period,” John Arney Business Systems Manager.
