The Sage 200 product range continues to dominate the accounting software SME sector in the UK.

Sage 200 maintains its position as the most popular SME finance product as it is excellent value and has stunning functionality, plus it can be implemented quickly and at a reasonable price.

There is a constant demand for experienced Sage 200 staff, from both Sage resellers as well as end user companies installing the software throughout their business and needing an internal consultant to roll it out and maintain the software. Clients are also keen to recruit Sage CRM skilled candidates for the standalone product or as part of their Sage 200 suite.

Typical Sage 200 job roles are:

  • Implementation consultants
  • Pre-Sales Consultants
  • Application Support Consultants
  • Sales Executives and Business Development Managers
  • Account Managers
  • Technical Consultants
  • Software Developers

The greatest demand is for Sage 200 Consultants and this job will typically entail:

  • Scoping the project
  • Running workshops to understand the client's requirements
  • Writing specifications
  • Configuration
  • Manipulation of data in SQL
  • Data migration
  • Training users
  • Managing the Go Live

A typical week for a permanently employed Sage 200 Consultant

Visit clients 3 days each week, then spend 1 day working from home and one day in the office. It is common to have 10 Sage 200 projects on the go at once.

Sage 200 is a successful, comprehensive, integrated software product and the reseller community covers the whole of the UK. The number of Sage 200 job roles continues to grow as the product becomes richer in functionality and the number of end users increase. Sage 200 certifications are especially useful and valued throughout the Sage Partner and the end user communities and all Sage 200 consultants should seriously consider taking their accreditation exams, even if they have to fund their studies themselves.

Sage 200 is a modular solution

You can build your perfect Sage 200 system by adding as many (or as few) of the modules to suit your particular business. The current Sage 200 modules are:

  • Sage 200 Financials (4 modules: Nominal Ledger, Cash Book, Sales Ledger and Purchase Ledger)
  • Sage 200 Commercials
  • Sage CRM
  • Sage 200 Project Accounting

  • Sage Manufacturing
  • Sage 200 POS (Point of Sale)
  • Sage 200 Web, Time & Expenses

Sage CRM

Sage CRM was originally called Sage MME and comes from the Sage AccPac family of products. It is available as part of the Sage 200 suite or as a standalone software product. Sage CRM is readily accepted by users as it is very easy to use and can be accessed over the internet. Unlike the Sage 200 accounting product, Sage CRM is web hosted so consultants need skills with JavaScript, VBScript and HTML to be able to work really well with the Sage CRM product.

Sage CRM effectively manages sales, marketing, customer service, automated email management, contact information and contract renewals.

There are many, many more Sage 200 jobs than there are experienced Sage 200 people, so salaries are going up. This upward trend has continued for 3 years. If you are lucky enough to gain Sage 200 Implementation and consulting experience, you will always be highly employable and it would be a great career move for any Implementation Consultant with accounting software experience. Sage 200 experience is in demand throughout the world!
