Which solution should you choose?
Along with Microsoft Dynamics 365, Sage Enterprise Management it is on the shortlist for most companies pondering a switch to a whole business solution, so it’s worth taking a moment to see how they compare.
The right CRM solution enables the organisation to streamline its business processes and stay in control by co-ordinating all business data from different departments and functions. Joined up thinking enables management to make better informed decisions, monitoring and responding to problems and opportunities more quickly. And it brings all the benefits of moving to the cloud. All data is accessible using mobile devices anywhere in the world via a simple, intuitive dashboard.
Sage X3 has long been recognised as one of the leading business management solutions. If you haven't heard Sage X3 mentioned for a while, there's a very good reason for that. It has been renamed, and is now Sage Enterprise Management, part of the Sage Business Cloud range of products. Sage Enterprise Management is widely believed to be especially suitable for mid-sized distribution and manufacturing businesses. Now that it has rebadged all of its solutions as Sage Business Cloud, the company is promoting them all as a single scalable ecosystem. They say that companies can grow and evolve from start-up to fully-fledged enterprise without having to change technology supplier. As the business develops, you can simply and seamlessly move from one Sage solution to another by adding components.
As Microsoft Gold Partners we at Fabric naturally favour Dynamics 365, while acknowledging that Sage Enterprise Management is a worthy competitor. When we get down to comparing individual functionalities, Dynamics 365 is widely recognised as being especially superior to the Sage product.
A view often heard around the industry is that Sage may be a better fit for companies aiming for rapid growth and expecting changing conditions, whereas Dynamics 365 is best suited to relatively stable businesses that are already running (or prepared to switch to) Microsoft Windows and Office 365.
We disagree. With our expert implementation and support, Dynamics 365 can be just as flexible and scalable as the Sage solution, while enabling users to benefit from Microsoft's unrivalled innovation and support.
