April 19, 2011 | News
A recent survey conducted by Ernst & Young Advisory on the performance of Sage ERP X3 revealed that Medium to Large Enterprises (MLEs) have reached a high level of maturity in terms of their information systems. They need software applications with deep and broad functionalities equivalent to those of very large companies, but they do not yet have the same IT, financial and human resources. When choosing a solution, MLEs now base decisions on much more operational and measurable criteria than in the past. They need solutions tailored to automatically meet their needs: a system that's simple to implement and use, a rapid return on investment and cost effectiveness.

Over 72% of companies surveyed were seeking a better general management system noted an improvement, and gains of over 10 % were recorded in terms of time saved in processing and producing financial statements.
