“Sage 200 has enabled our business to grow from 3 depots to 8 across the country.”

Sage 50, buckling under the pressure

RSS were growing rapidly, and their current Sage 50 system was struggling with the significant increase in transaction numbers. Using disparate systems also resulted in frequent data errors and considerable time wasted.

More advanced functionality was required to facilitate future growth and manage serial number traceability, multi-location stock control, back-to-back order processing and many other efficiency promoting features.

A solution to handle the heavy lifting

As a natural progression from Sage 50, RSS chose Sage 200 Professional with the seamlessly integrated Sicon Hire module. This solution offered the integrated hire management, accounting and order processing system which not only met the current needs of the business but would allow for future expansion.

RSS selected us as their Sage business partner based on our extensive industry expertise and Sage 200 knowledge. “Prosys Computing understood our business requirements and were able to demonstrate an integrated hire management, accounting and order processing system which met our needs. We were confident in their ability to implement the system as agreed and they had the resources and expertise to provide the high level of support we wanted for the future.”

“We have since added several more user licences and Prosys Computing have taken us through a number of upgrades to ensure our systems are kept up to date and enhanced.”

“Prosys Computing delivered a seamless transition from Sage 50 to Sage 200. The functionality of the software to assist with our management processes and reporting, along with the continued support and efficiency from Prosys Computing, has enabled our business to grow from 3 depots to 8 across the country.”
