Sage ERP X3 Recruitment

 Sage ERP X3 is probably the most exciting ERP software product to hit the UK market since MS Dynamics AX.

Why is it so good?

  • Sage own the product and they are a listed company with nearly 6 million customers across the globe  
  • It has an upgrade path from Sage Line 500 / Sage 1000 (original Tetra CS/3). These are 30 year old Sage products and there is a huge base of users, who are desperate for a decent product to upgrade to.  
  • Since launching the product Sage have brought out 7 new versions of X3, and that investment has meant stunning functionality that makes clients buy it.
  • It is a fabulous looking product, simple yet powerful, easy to install and aimed at medium to larger businesses (50 -2500 staff)
  • Sage ERP X3 is stable and decent and works extremely well  
  • Sage currently dominates the field of entry level accounting software and the SME market with Sage 50 and Sage 200; they can't really fail with Sage ERP X3 in the Tier 2 sector.  
  • Sage has selected a few key resellers to sell Sage ERP X3 and the backup, support and help that these resellers are giving is superb.


The product started life as Adonix and the major market for it was in France; in the UK it was sold successfully by 2 resellers between 2005 and 2010. Internationally the Sage X3 product sold incredibly well and has an installed base of 3,000 users in France, Spain, Portugal and elsewhere in the world.

In 2010 Sage bought Adonix and started a major and significant redevelopment of the Adonix ERP product which was officially rebranded as Sage ERP X3.

The future of Sage ERP X3

As Sage ERP X3's installed base has grown, so the acceptance of the product grows. There are now 100’s of companies who have upgraded from Sage Line 500 and Sage 1000 to Sage ERP X3, that gives new companies the confidence to purchasing the software.

Consultants who gain experience in a new product when it comes to market, are rewarded with high salaries, excellent career choices and opportunities and can pick and choose their future employers.

Sage will continue to improve the X3 product and bring out more functionality and more modules and this will increase demand for staff further.
