As a long-term Sage Line 50 user, global event management company, The CWC Group liked the software but found that it was not providing the business with what it required from a flexibility or reporting perspective.
Significant growth together with the increasing need for specific reports that Sage Line 50 could not handle due to its rigid structure, led to the company’s decision to look at upgrading its ERP solution.
Paul Kelly, Head of Finance at The CWC Group contacted Sage to discuss his requirements and was referred to CPiO. Paul says, “When I met with CPiO I was pleasantly surprised by the attitude of the sales consultant. He took the time to fully understand our business requirements which are quite complex and spoke about Sage 200 clearly and comprehensively. Following the meeting I felt comfortable that Sage 200 would be the best product for us to move forward with and that CPiO was the Sage partner we wanted to work with.”
The CWC Group ordered a 6 user Sage 200 solution including Project Accounting and Business Intelligence. The order also included CPIO services to install and configure the software, convert data, train users and assist with the successful go live of the system.
Paul concludes, “ Sage 200 has far more functionality than Sage Line 50 and crucially, it can produce the reports that we need, which are critical to the business. Upgrading was definitely the right thing to do.”
