How Sage Evolution has transformed Candlex
Focused implementation based on the Gaps Analysis and To Be Processes. All Gaps identified have been successfully addressed and signed off by module owners. Manual calculation in Excel moved from 80 % to almost 5 %. Enhanced procedure and control. Manufacturing variance control report has been implemented to track any variances between actual quantity used against the standard usage. Timely Management reporting at a click of a Button. Dashboard Business Intelligence reports. Better control over Accounts Payables. Elimination of ALL duplication of data capture as every transaction is now captured in Sage Evolution rather than in Excel. With the use of budget in Sage Evolution, every Supplier Invoice will be validated against the budget amount by the budget owners. Better planning and stock monitoring thought re - order levels. Manufacturing process now caters for actual consumption rather than standard consumption of raw materials. Provision has even been made to cater for wastage during production. Contact management is a tool that lets you manage interaction between you, your customers, your suppliers and even your fellow company members. Sales and Distribution – tracking of cycle time for each trip by sales representative. Fields have been created for departure time, departure date, arrival time, arrival date, mileage covered and tonnage.

“Sage Evolution has been a success in my current organization..."
Being familiar with quite a number of ERPs, the role of Project Manager for implementation of Sage Evolution at Plastinax Austral Ltee has been up to now the most important experience achieved. The system delivered by Software Concepts fits our business requirements very well. The most important points about this system are that: Possibility to add different modules be it tailor made or standard – Sage Evolution in itself has replaced 4 different Software at Plastinax (including the Old version of Partner) User friendliness of the different screens, easy to understand and deal with Timely reporting especially with a powerful reporting module like BI With the advance BI you can develop your own reporting tool that can be used for daily monitoring. It would be unfair not to mention that the software is being used at Plastinax by laymen Another very important aspect that comes with the implementation of Sage Evolution is that it was delivered by a team of Professional dedicated to Customer Service and satisfaction. There has been continued support throughout the project implementation phase and I believe this has helped users’ lots in maintaining their confidence. For me Sage Evolution has been a success in my current organization.
