Regularly listed as one of the top 20 enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions worldwide, Sage X3 continues to make market inroads as more companies make the move to this agile, cloud-based solution.
But what really sets it apart from the pack? Why are thousands of brands seeing better ROI thanks to Sage X3, and why are thousands more making the switch? Let’s find out.
Embracing the Need for ERP
90 percent of organizations now consider their successful ERP implementations a success, but fully half of all implementation efforts fail the first time.
The result? While brands know that ERP systems deliver value for operations, bridging the gap between knowledge and action often proves difficult. Here’s why: As the market diversifies, there are a host of ERP options available to companies. From massive, industry-leading providers to small startup solutions, organizations have a wealth of choices.
But this choice comes with a challenge — not all ERP systems are created equal. Some are purpose-built for specific industries, while others rely on proprietary technology that doesn’t play well with other systems. Still, others leverage more flexible architecture but can make it difficult to connect with legacy data sources and tools.
Sage X3 offers the best of both worlds: Advanced architecture backed by industry-leading agility for easy implementation.
Where Sage X3 Excels
For businesses looking to improve their ERP process, Sage X3 offers five key benefits:
- End-to-end visibility
The more you see, the better. From materials purchasing to supply chain logistics and sales data, more visibility means more control over your business. With streamlined dashboards that help your team quickly access all aspects of inventory and warehouse operations, you’re better prepared to make strategic decisions that maximize profitability while reducing potential waste.
- Intuitive design
The Sage X3 experience starts with intuitive design. Unlike older ERP systems, Sage was built from the ground up with speed and simplicity in mind. This makes both deployments and uses straightforward and seamless. Your teams can get up and running ASAP, and since Sage X3 is built for maximum usability, businesses are in a better position to deliver successful first-time ERP deployments, rather than wasting time and effort with second, third, or even fourth choices.
- Intelligent analytics
How much are you spending? When? Where? Which processes are meeting performance goals, and which need improvement? Sage X3 delivers intelligent analytics that makes it possible to understand performance and costs in real-time across your organization, in turn allowing you to pinpoint areas that aren’t living up to expectations. Consider a production line process that’s reducing total efficiency. Without the visibility afforded by Sage X3, your business sees the outcome — decreased productivity — but may not be able to pinpoint the root cause. Intelligent analytics make it possible to discover what’s not going to plan — and more importantly, why.
- Adaptable operations
Sage X3 doesn’t just deliver improved ERP outcomes for a single industry. Instead, adaptable operations support industries including food and beverage producers, pharmaceutical organizations, agriculture companies, and discrete manufacturing firms. Support for multiple currencies, languages, and regulations, meanwhile, makes Sage X3 a great choice for multinational brands that require differing ERP functions depending on where factories, offices, and warehouses are located.
- Reliable ROI
When it comes to ROI, the numbers speak for themselves. Using Sage X3, professional services organizations saw 197% ROI with a 5-month payback period for their X3 spend. Manufacturing companies saw 218% ROI with a 4-month payback period and distribution enterprises captured 237% ROI with a 4-month payback.
Put simply? Sage X3 helps companies deliver sustainable ROI that quickly pays off initial ERP investments.
