“Standard reporting in Sage 200 just didn’t give us the level of sales reporting that our Business Development Managers needed to truly understand their territories. We wanted a depth of detail, reported by various criteria, on a monthly and year to date basis, and the criteria we needed was not able to be used within the standard reporting nor the BI module of Sage 200.
To produce what we needed for our sales team, several reports had to be run within Sage & exported to Excel, after which multiple sorting and V-Lookups had to be carried out to compile several reports to show sales by territory, sales by postcode and sales by customer. This process required a staff member with considerable Excel skills, great attention to detail and accuracy, and above all… a lot of time!”
