  • Sage 200 Business Intelligence (BI) provides powerful analysis and reporting which will transform your data into meaningful intelligence for your company's needs. Critical management decisions can be made on complete, accurate information which is easily extracted. You will have a unified and integrated view of all your data, with complete management dashboards and analysis. As no technical knowledge or pre-requisites are required, you'll find it easy to get started. Sage 200 BI is a superior alternative to complex spreadsheet reporting with reports easy to create and automatically refreshed when the data is updated. It also comes with time-saving pre-defined reports, allowing you to analyse and understand information within Sage 200.

    The key benefits of Sage 200 BI are:
    • Pre-defined reports out-of-the-box
      Sage 200 BI is supplied with time saving, pre defined reports allowing you to analyse and understand financial information within your Sage 200 solution. For example - Profit & Loss report, worst paying customers, average sales month on month.

    • Reporting and analytics within the comfort of Microsoft® Excel
      Sage 200 BI brings business data into the familiar Microsoft Excel environment allowing quick analysis of company data from many different angles. This means the features of Excel, such as ease of formatting (layout and printing), calculations and macros can all be used to enhance the reports created using Sage 200 BI.

    • Make faster, more informed and confident decisions
      Sage 200 BI provides quick and easy access to information that has not typically been available through Sage 200. The report fields can be easily changed in seconds to allow quick and easy reporting and analysis.

    • Save essential time on reporting
      Sage 200 BI provides a superior alternative to complex spreadsheet reporting with reports easy to create, from easy to access data that is automatically refreshed. Sage 200 BI gives one version of the truth and reduces the need for complex time consuming spreadsheets which require manual intervention and manipulation.

    • Drill down
      Allows the you to easily go from a summary report to detailed analysis on specific items in the report. You can drill down through increasing levels of detail or to the transaction data for more detailed analysis.

    Once armed with your business aims and budget allowances we will recommend the solution options most suitable for you.

  • Sage 200 Manufacturing can help you solve your business constraints in a number of areas, with core functionality that will help you improve your competitive edge. It can support your shop floor in many ways, including managing multiple Bills of Materials (BOM) easily. Multiple versions of a BOM can be stored and used, one of which is 'live' at a given time.

    With powerful Version control, only one person can edit or change a BOM at any time, and other users are aware that a BOM is being edited. Full change history is stored for each BOM. Old BOMs can be marked as 'Dead', 'Obsolete' or 'On Hold'. Obsolete BOMs can be revived but not built from, and Dead BOMs can be permanently deleted if required.

    Operation templates and BOM copy function
    The copy option allows you to quickly create a Bill of Materials. Operations comprise the labour and machines processes required to manufacture a finished item or sub-assembly. You can enter operations details individually each time you create a new BOM, or create a library of operations stored as templates in the Operations Register for subsequent use within BOMs.

    Improves efficiency by allowing you to save time when entering new BOMs.

    Flexible build options
    Sage 200 can be configured to always build sub-assemblies, or always use from stock, or allow choice in each case. You can manage products with multiple units of measure. Picking lists can be produced at the time of allocation or separately. Multiple finished items can be included in stock calculations and allocations to ensure finished goods that have similar constituents of another assembly cannot use each other's raw materials. Sage 200 Manufacturing also supports 'Phantom' BOMs so you can create intermediate items that are never held stock in stock but are standalone constituents of another finished good. br>

    Customised BOMs and 'Specials'
    Users can replace individual items, add new items or amend quantities of existing items. A 'Partial Build' feature means that if for some reason you don't need to build all the items that raw materials have been allocated for, you can enter the quantity you have actually built. In addition, for expedited builds, Sage 200 can cope with the situation where finished goods are built without first allocating raw materials.

    Precise costing
    Detailed costs can be built in for each unit or build run. You can assign labour and machine time for each assembly process to ensure accurate costing. Additionally, you can allocate a proportion of a fixed cost/operating overhead to a run, based on an average number of units per run.

    If a component changes, the rolled-up costs can be calculated automatically if desired. For components that do not use the standard costing method, Sage 200 will re-calculate the rolled-up cost of the finished goods upon allocation.

    Full batch and serial number processing
    If your processes involve issuing a batch number or serial number to finished products, our software can record this, enabling you to trace it to the customers who received it. Sage 200 automatically maintains essential quality standards and detailed traceability.

    Produce quotes for multiple batch sizes
    You can build up an estimate using a variety of quantity breaks. You can alter the quantity and quickly see how the totals are affected. You also have the ability to cost the estimate and print the estimate details for any/all of the quantity breaks that you have entered.

    Save time by using the same estimates to reflect different quantities and calculate the different costs. For example, by creating an estimate for 1000, 5000 and 10,000 of a particular item.

    Rapid order entry
    The rapid order entry feature allows you to create estimates quickly and speeds up the creation of multiple estimates. Allowing your customer-facing staff to create quotes quickly and easily over the telephone.

    Automatic creation of Purchase and Works Orders
    The Sage 200 MRP recommendations to 'make' and 'buy' products can be amended, filtered and sorted, combined or spilt and then actioned to automatically create Purchase and Works Orders.

    Improves efficiency by saving time and eliminating the need to manually key data.

    Powerful stock projection facility
    View a list of predicted stock for all or a range of products in each time period. If Sage 200 is using multiple locations, you can also look at a range of products from an individual warehouse. You can see stock predictions for products below minimum level, those with negative stock, or those above maximum level.

    Gives you the advantage of identifying potential problems before they arise by providing full visibility and control over future stock levels.

    Actuals vs. Estimates/Standard
    • View the costs entered and see the variance against what you had estimated for an operation.
    • Provides you with accurate costing and calculation of a job's profitability.
    • Tight integration with Sage 200 Financials and Commercials.
    • Your manufacturing staff have complete visibility of the entire production process - from the original Sales Order to Works Order Processing and Work in Progress to finished goods in the warehouse.
    • Stock use can be summarised to a single line for each nominal account when posting to the Nominal Ledger, or split out to multiple lines by component. Summarising nominal postings significantly reduces the volume of Nominal Ledger transactions, improving performance.

    Once armed with your business aims and budget allowances we will recommend the solution options most suitable for you. If you would like further information on Sage 200 Manufacturing, please download the PDFs from the More Information box on the left, or contact us.
