Your questions answered:
Are you struggling with Sage 200?
Do you often find you are limited in Sage 200 and struggle to do what you need day to day? We often hear, from companies looking to switch from Sage 200, that the integration of modules within the software isn’t smooth enough so it’s not an easy task to see all business information in one place. This leads to challenges such as; no visibility on stock levels from different depots, unable to easily access customer special pricing information, difficulty creating targeted marketing, unclear and disjointed reporting, time-consuming tasks such as manually allocating stock to orders or manually changing the status of quotes through to orders etc.
These challenges affect the productivity and efficiency of your business processes. This ultimately has an overall effect on business performance and can also hinder growth and expansion. We tackle the issues businesses face with Sage 200 and other ERP systems that restrict optimum performance and growth. Our business software is a fully integrated ERP system built with our customers and their industry needs in mind. Our 40 years’ experience in the software industry means we have adapted and developed a system that works perfectly for our customers. With a variety of core modules, tailored for your industry, you can be sure that OGL Software will work seamlessly with your business.
Our development team is always expanding and improving our software to meet our customers’ needs and over the past 40 years have created modules we know will meet your requirements, including:
We make it simple to move from Sage 200
We understand the move from one business software to another can be daunting and is often the main reason you choose not to upgrade to an alternative supplier. But you won’t regret your choice with OGL Software.
We have a dedicated delivery team, with years of experience migrating companies from Sage 200, who will manage the process of migrating from start to finish and will be there every step of the way to make sure you’re comfortable and happy with the move.

Better still, once the delivery team has moved you from Sage 200 to OGL Software, your dedicated Account Manager is always on hand to make sure you’re getting the best out of the software.

Software features your business needs:
Fully Integrated CRM
Our CRM module gives you the ability to; email quotes with product images attached, profile customers for targeted marketing campaigns, track conversion rates for quotes to orders for account reporting. Plus, it seamlessly communicates with all other modules - for example, it enables you to view specific account information when inputting an order in the Sales Order screen. You can also record all external or internal communications regarding a customer account to ensure you deliver excellent customer service for your clients.
Stock Control & Management
Manually keeping on top of your growing product portfolio is time-consuming and open to errors which impacts heavily on profits. Our Stock Control module automates processes such as re-ordering stock based on minimum stock level parameters, making purchasing stock accurate and efficient. Other benefits include: advanced searching capabilities, supplier price imports, perpetual stocktakes, batch traceability to monitor expiry dates and link items for part dispatch.
Quote & Order Management
Management of quotes and orders should be simple, which is why our module allows you to: update and save special customer pricing, view stock in multiple depots, view current promotions and give visibility of up-sell / cross-sell opportunities, easily place customer re-orders, see leakage, know the profit margins for products to make price negotiation quicker, see credit control warnings and auto send order confirmation emails.
