  1. Your Accounting Tasks Have Become Time-Sucking Manual Process: One sure shot reason you need to get an ERP software is if your accounts team is still dependent on the traditional pen and paper or excel sheets to validate the data. Sage X3 helps you get rid of the time-sucking manual accounting process by integrating both the back-end and front-end systems allowing the team to gain access to real-time data, freeing up their additional time.
  1. Your Customer Support Is Getting Hampered: Imagine you have a great product and a dedicated team capable to handle all the customer related queries. Yet, the customer experience is a constant hurdle between your sales team’s performance and targets. If there is no proper information on the inventory, if available or not, or if the product is shipped or not, it will become difficult for your sales team to close the deals and the customer support team to delight the customers. But, with ERP software, you can have complete information on inventory tracking against invoice, pricing, orders, etc. The sales team can easily access the required information through a single dashboard that can be accessed anytime, from anywhere.
  1. Filing Tax Returns Becomes A Headache: The most important part any business needs to keep a bird’s eye on is the ever changing statutory regulations. One wrong move, and the whole company can fall into pieces. Sage X3 has a fully automated up-to-date feature that leverages companies with easy e-filing, TDS, GST etc.
