Losing Productivity? It Might Be Time to Replace Sage (1st in a 5-part series)

Kim Anselmo - Wednesday, October 02, 2013

If your business is growing then you want to keep it that way, but ultimately you have to make a choice between two ways of continuing on this path:

1. Employ more people to increase productivity.
2. Implement systems with tools and resources your people need increase productivity and keep pace as you grow.

We have compiled a list of scenarios businesses you may be facing when outgrowing Sage. In this 5- part blog series, we will address some of these common challenges and inform you how Microsoft Dynamics GP goes beyond traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to help you support the new way people and therefore, businesses want to work.

Business Challenge #1: Losing Productivity

As a small- and mid-sized business, you most likely prefer to keep your payroll as lean as possible, so that’s where technology comes in. When your current systems are stifling growth instead of enabling it, it’s time to consider your alternatives.

At The Resource Group (, we understand that your people are the key to your success—no matter what types of products or services you provide. If you can update the systems that often bog them down with manual data entry, then you will be amazed at how far they take you.

Microsoft Dynamics GP is a user-friendly business management solution that helps you see across your entire organization, making an impact from your desk to the front desk. Offering Financial Management, Business Intelligence and Reporting, Supply Chain Management, Human Resources Management and Sales, Service and Project Management, a business solution from Microsoft connects your people with each other, links the many moving parts of your company, and makes your team as effective as it can be.

Be productive right out of the box. Microsoft Dynamics GP looks, works and acts like Microsoft Office, so your team knows how to put it to work the instant you put it in place. Give everyone precisely what they need to do their specific job. With role-tailored access and tools, the right people get just the right information just when they need it. Choose from cloud or on-premises deployment — whatever works for your business. And your team can take care of the job from the office, from the road and at home—wherever they’re most productive.

Because your business can’t afford down time, we take the hassles out of the implementation process with a solution designed to get you up and running quickly.
