Sage 200 Financials – Key features and benefits:
Speed batch entry
Giving you the ability to enter large volumes of transactions and choose when to commit them to the ledgers. Additionally, colour-coded alerts let you know if there’s a potential problem without stopping your workflow.
Foreign currency capability
You can trade with customers and suppliers outside of the UK and in any mixture of currency. For example, you can produce foreign currency invoices, statements, receipts and payments and you can maintain currency-specific product pricing and discounts.
You can specify spot and/or period rates of exchange for each currency and all changes are recorded along with who made them.
All transactions are recorded in base currency with the exchange rate used, so you can closely track the effects of currency fluctuations over time.
Nominal cost centre and departmental analysis
You can attribute costs, analyse budgets and produce management reports, e.g. Balance Sheet and Profit and Loss, by department and cost centre.
You can also attribute individual transactions by your own analysis codes, for example, to track projects across departments and cost centres.
Open or Closed Period Accounting
You can open, close and re-open periods as required, ledger by ledger; up to 20 periods can be set for each financial year. Access is tightly controlled by individual user permissions and there’s a full history of who changed what and when.
These can be set up to match the accounting periods if required, or have their own date range structure.
These date ranges can be set to suit your business, for example, you could measure sales performance on a weekly basis at busy times of the year and monthly at other times.
Comprehensive customer records
Store all the details on your customers for easy retrieval, with instant links to their sales orders.
A range of credit tools are supplied including debtors’ letters, statement production, provisions for doubtful and bad debts and the ability to place customer accounts on hold.
Detailed credit information can be held against each customer/supplier record.
Sage 200 will suggest which payments to make to your suppliers in order to benefit from early settlement discounts.
