As a Sage user, you have likely already spent thousands of dollars implementing an ERP system that can streamline your business operations and increase efficiency. Indeed, many mid to large-sized companies will eventually collect positive returns on their ERP investments within 1 to 3 years after adopting them. These returns are usually measured in gained operational efficiency, which most ERP solutions will eventually deliver in the long-term.
However, many third-party software solutions do exist, most developed specifically to enhance functionality, that can drastically expedite the return on an ERP investment. These software extensions improve software performance or add new features to help businesses. Additionally, these modules can sometimes help companies offset some of the initial ERP system implementation costs. For example: A commission calculator enhancement can help an account payable manager reduce time on managing sales rep commissions and other commission related tasks. For a company that has hundreds of sales reps, even a 5 minute saving per account can quickly add up to thousands of dollars in saved time and resources.
Another example of how a software enhancement can help streamline financial activities within the Sage ERP system, is the payment processing add-on. With customers increasingly using electronic payment methods, businesses need to be equipped with the proper tools and technology, that can enable the acceptance of numerous credit cards, debit cards, and electronic checks. While big bulky terminals address the payment needs for some businesses, many companies prefer to have a more comprehensive solution that can do more than just process payments. More specifically, modernized organizations prefer to integrate their entire payment processing cycle to minimize double data entry and human errors, and increase financial transparency in their reporting.
Most companies working with a specific ERP solution, are aware that software providers typically offer some kind of extension to enhance their software functionality. However, many companies are not aware that there are at least 2-3 alternative enhancements, developed by third-party companies for every existing ERP system. These third-party enhancements, are often as good or better than the original software manufacturer’s recommended solution.
