Growing companies are increasingly choosing cloud ERP solutions. While not right for every company and every situation, cloud solutions are now quite mature and offer comparable or superior features to on-premises solutions. In addition, cloud solutions offer an enhanced user experience, intuitive reporting and analytics, streamlined integration, and access from anywhere on any device with just an Internet connection.
Sage has invested heavily in cloud solutions as part of the “Sage Business Cloud” initiative. Their acquisition of Intacct in August 2017 was a central part of their strategy for growing small- and mid-sized businesses. It also includes ERP applications and solutions for people, payroll, payments and banking.
At the same time, Sage has a large and loyal customer base utilizing on-premises applications such as Sage 500. They have committed to maintaining a “Customer for Life” strategy. Fundamentally, this means that the customer is in control and has the freedom to choose. In other words, Sage will continue to support existing applications and no Sage customer will be forced to migrate to another product unless they are ready and choose to do so.
