TEC Analyst Observations on Sage 100 Standard ERP

Sage's strategy for small businesses is to provide robust basic functionality and the option to integrate or extend that functionality through other Sage products, add-ons offered by partners, and extra features provided through Web services. Sage is also diversifying its offering for small business from a technical perspective, with a cloud offering of Sage 100 Standard ERP and also with Sage 100 Premium ERP, which is the equivalent of Sage 100 Standard ERP, except that it works with the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database.
 
Sage 100 Standard ERP can be a good option for small manufacturers requiring basic functionality for financials, sales and purchasing management, and inventory and light manufacturing. The Sage product provides a good level of support in these areas, which make up the core functionality needed by small manufacturing companies. When extra functionality is needed, Sage offers add-ons and partner solutions or recommends the use of other Sage products, such as Sage 300 ERP or Sage 500 ERP. Integration with Sage CRM is also offered for CRM and Sage HRMS. Read more
