Sage’s flagship global ERP solution is easy to use, rapid to deploy and cost-effective and 3,300 businesses, representing over 165,000 users in 55 countries are Sage ERP X3 customers. Sage has now developed a localized solution for the Belgian market.
Brussels, 21 December 2011 – The Sage Group plc announces today the launch of Sage ERP X3 in Belgium. In a bid to help Belgian mid-sized and large companies drive their growth, Sage is now marketing its global ERP solution for the Belgian mid-market.
Such companies, including local Belgian subsidiaries of major international groups, can now leverage the extended functionality of Sage ERP X3 for their international business requirements. Sage ERP X3 will also help them respond to complex needs, from data analytics, reporting and financial accounting through to management control and operational management (production, purchasing, sales, inventory management, etc).
"With 60% of the GDP in export, companies based in Belgium have demanding international requirements," explains Christophe Letellier, CEO of Sage ERP X3. "Thanks to its unique ability to factor in the international aspects of companies' business, especially by supporting a broad array of different legislative systems with just a single database, Sage ERP X3 delivers unique value for Belgian businesses. Furthermore, the solution was natively developed for the mid-market and is designed to meet the specific needs facing such companies, for example, a simple and intuitive interface with a low Total Cost of Ownership."
"Sage develops bespoke solutions, because experience has taught us that software needs vary according to the size of the company," adds Philippe Tailleur, CEO of Sage in Belgium. "We are delighted at the Sage Group's decision to focus on the mid-market in Belgium and thereby deliver support to all types of local businesses in driving their expansion and scaling up their business model."
Sage ERP X3 is an international solution that adapts to the legislative framework applicable in the countries concerned. In Belgium's case, the localized Sage ERP X3 solution is a vendor-proprietary version that features support for local tax regulations, such as the format for bank files and intra-EU VAT checks.
"Localizing Sage ERP X3 to suit Belgian requirements and breaking into this new market are not only driven by Sage's expertise and its intimate knowledge of local tax law, but also by customers that are already set up in project mode through our partners," adds Christophe Letellier. "This excellent springboard means that we can confidently go about meeting our objectives."
