- Have your transactions ground to a halt due to Sage Line 50 hitting the limit of the number of records it can store?
- Does your reseller have to clear out your old transactions (even for the current year) just to keep you moving?
- Do you lose your systems for days whilst they resolve it?
- Have you bolted on an application to fill the gaps in Line 50?
Well you are not alone, we hear many such stories like this and can also report that ‘Sage Line 50 limits transaction volumes’. Simply visit http://www.accountingweb.co.uk/anyanswers/sage-line-50-limits-transaction-volumes to view examples and explanation of the problems encountered.
So what is the solution, as no action is a damaging and costly option?
Historically Sage would have marketed Sage Line 100 as the natural upgrade but this product no longer exists. The original Line 100 (a rebadged of the old Sovereign product which in turn was a new name for the acquired Sky software product) was withdrawn due to its age. It’s proposed successor (based on a SQL Server database) was embarrassingly abandoned by Sage in 2010 whilst still in development.
Understandably many companies are leaving Sage at this point in their growth and joining us here at Lakeview to take advantage of feature rich ERP software based on the latest technology at a more affordable price which scales way beyond Line 200 to companies with annual revenues in excess of £100m and many hundreds of thousands of transactions each year.
