Other reasons to consider the Ashgoal Sage 200 cloud

With support for Microsoft Windows XP ending in April 2014, businesses of every size need to think about migrating to a newer version of Windows. Sage say that the latest offering from Microsoft – Windows 8 – will not be supported for Sage200 until they release service pack 5 for Sage200 version 2011 at the end of November 2012. Windows 7 was only supported for Sage200 from version 2010. If you have got an earlier version of this mid-market accounting software, if you do not upgrade your software then you may not be able to upgrade your accountant's computer equipment.

What's the worst case scenario? – Having to upgrade everything at once!

What's the biggest risk? – Not being able to back out of a Sage200 upgrade if: -

  • the data doesn't migrate correctly; or
  • the users haven't had training or experience in the new version; or
  • your 'special' reports don't work; or
  • you just haven't had the time to prepare for the new version.

ASHGOAL TAKES AWAY THE SAGE200 ACCOUNTING UPGRADE RISKS

How?

  • We create a special area on the Ashgoal Cloud for your accounts department
  • We install the latest version 2011 of Sage200, fully service packed
  • We take a copy of your data and migrate it – FREE OF CHARGE
  • We give an agreed number of your users access to your 'cloud' area for a specific period of time (usually a month) so that they can: -
    • Check that your data migrated correctly;
    • Receive their training using your data;
    • Log in to your 'cloud' area at any time to get themselves experienced in the new version
  • We take away a copy of your 'special' reports, work on them, and then make the revised reports available on your 'cloud' area for you to test in advance of any 'go live' to your accounting system upgrade.
  • If you need extra time on the 'cloud' then a small fee applies.
  • Then when you are ready we re-migrate your data to the 'cloud' and check it thoroughly

And, if you want to stay 'live' on the Ashgoal cloud, then you start paying a monthly fee for your services – with NO NEED to upgrade your accountant's computer or your in-house servers – by using the Ashgoal cloud each user gets their own terminal server session working for them, only limited by the speed of your broadband connection and the availability of the internet.

But we can also let you use the cloud for a short period while we prepare your in-house systems for the upgrade (just like we've already got on the cloud) and then we just move the data back in-house.
