Sage Additions To Boost Warehouse Efficiency

Sage additions are widely available to help you boost the efficiency of your warehouse. Sage 50 and Sage 200 are both easy-to-use accounting systems, which feature credit card processing, payroll and inventory management. Sage is scalable, which means it can easily be adapted to suit your business. When you combine this with one or several of the add-ons that are available, you can ensure that stock control management and the order process is much more efficient. This will result in time and money being saved. With that in mind, read on to discover more about the best Sage add-ons for your warehouse.

Why Sage Stock Control Is Important

There is only one place to begin when it comes to Sage additions, and this is Sage stock control. Why is stock control so important? The warehouse is central to any wholesale distribution company and, therefore, the stock control solution you choose can make or break your business. You need to fulfil orders in an efficient, accurate and timely manner, otherwise your reputation could suffer. If you choose a Sage inventory management solution carefully, you will be able to accept deliveries against purchase orders; store products sensibly so they can be found quickly; and accurately and efficiently pack and ship products. This will ensure your business maximises profit levels and retains customers. After all, stock management issues can result in some very unhappy customers, which can be difficult to recover from. Bad reviews spread rapidly online in the current climate. A successful stock control system will also ensure that your business processes do not become outdated and ineffective as your company grows. The management team will also be able to see the activity levels that are needed to fulfil your sales orders. This means informed decisions about business processes and staffing levels can be made with greater ease.

What To Expect From A Sage Stock Control System

Now you know why stock control is important, but what should you expect from a Sage stock control system? Well, there are many different options available, and one you should certainly consider is a Sage 50 or Sage 200 barcode solution. A barcoder offers a simple answer to the problems of controlling and managing stock. User-friendly barcode scanning makes it possible to reduce manual data entry while eliminating needless paperwork and counting errors. You can also seamlessly link a barcoder to your Sage 50 or 200 accounts, and the solution is easy to scale to suit your individual business needs. Common features of Sage stock control barcoding systems include stock taking and adjustments, booking in and booking out, purchase order processing and creation, barcode label printing, and much more. You will also be able to generate management reports with ease too, including Goods Despatched, Goods Received, and Stock Variance reports. Of course, this all depends on the barcode software you choose, and so it is important to select with care. Take the time to read reviews that have been left by past clients, and make sure the software can be adapted to suit your business.

Take Orders Anywhere With A Sage Mobile App

Another addition you should consider is a Sage mobile app, as this will give you the ability to take orders at any time and from anywhere. As you can create sales orders direct from your customers’ premises, you can make sure that you never miss out on an order while also boosting the efficiency of your business. As the app will be integrated with your accounting software, as soon as an order is processed, it will appear in Sage 50 or Sage 200 within a matter of seconds. This means you can dispatch the order as quickly as possible. There are many other benefits to gain by investing in a Sage 50 or Sage 200 mobile app. This includes the fact that Head Office can remain in control of orders received, if necessary; and you can ensure that customer account details are always kept up to date. You will also be able to capture orders accurately and quickly, no matter where you are, and, if you choose with care, you won’t even need Internet access. The best apps are fully mobile, which mean a phone or Internet connection is not necessary in order to browse customers and products, and subsequently create orders.

Features To Look For When Choosing A Sage Mobile App

When researching the best Sage mobile app for your business, there are a number of different features that you should be looking out for. Ensure, for instance, you opt for a Sage CRM app that enables you to store customer details and invoice history. This enables your team to easily find out everything they need to know about a customer in order to serve them in the best possible manner. It’s also advisable to look for an app that is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, even if you only use one type of device at the moment. This leaves the door open in the future to switching operating devices without any downtime. Make sure the app is compatible with the Sage accounting software you use, and you may need to find an app with a head office order approval function. This is a necessity for businesses that need to run orders through head office as part of their processes. The app should also be incredibly easy to use, featuring a list of products with images, prices and current stock levels. One company that offers an app which ticks all of these boxes, and many more, is es Consulting. This expert provider can help you to boost your business with its range of Sage additions.
