Review of Sage ERP X3

April, 2013

Rating: 4/5

Sage ERP X3 is a solid ERP solution for medium sized organisations - it covers finance, HR, manufacturing, quality management, purchasing, inventory, sales and more.

Before you choose Sage ERP X3, here are the key things you need to know.

First, it’s best for mid-sized companies. As an organisation, Sage have a lot of experience with smaller businesses. X3 is their flagship ERP solution for organisations of up to a few thousand staff. Sage ERP X3 also supports multiple languages, currencies and jurisdictions, but it isn’t as feature-rich as some ERP packages provided by SAP or Oracle.

Second, it’s critically important that you choose a good partner when implementing an ERP package. Sage have a larger number of partners across the globe, which is great. Look for partners who have experience in your industry, and who can support the customisations needed for your country or area.

Third, industry vertical solutions. I’m pleased at Sage’s specific functionality for a variety of different industries - such as high tech, automotive, industrial machinery/equipment, life sciences, chemicals, and food/beverage. However, while these do provide a good foundation, you will still need to customise the solution to fit your business.

I recommend businesses with a few hundred to a few thousand staff looking for an ERP solution put Sage ERP X3 on their shortlist - especially if you’re in one of the industry verticals they support.
