Sage 300 ERP offers a powerful enterprise resource planning tool for businesses at all stages of growth. Many have wondered what the C stood for in Sage 300c. Now, with a new name change, we know that it stands for the connected cloud you receive with Sage 300cloud. But there are other C’s of Sage 300cloud—Cloud, Customers, and Customized—that make it one of the most popular ERP products on the market. Let’s take a look at how each C benefits your business.
Cloud-Based Sage 300cloud
ERP systems are no longer optional. To remain competitive, businesses must use data to refine their strategies, target their customers, and improve service. Without data, you’ll rely on guesswork that may lead you to the wrong conclusions. With real-time data, you’ll be able to make faster, better decisions and build a stronger, more competitive business.
Sage 300cloud offers this and more. It’s a cloud-based ERP application. This means that it is accessible anytime, anywhere, from any device. If you can log into the Internet, you can log into Sage 300cloud. Sage 300 also offers an on-premises solution for customers who prefer site-based ERP.
Cloud-based ERP such as Sage 300cloud offers you so much more than older versions. The new, streamlined interface is easy to use and fast to ramp up. Maintenance isn’t an issue with the cloud-based version of Sage 300, since all maintenance, upgrades, and security services are provided by Sage. Your job is simply to use and enjoy the benefits of real-time data at your fingertips. Who could ask for anything more?
Customers – for Life
Sage 300cloud offers so many features that you’ll quickly become a Sage “lifer”, someone who becomes loyal to Sage products after long-time use of them.
Features of Sage 300cloud that may make you a customer for life include:
- Finance and accounting management

Within each of these features are even more details that pack Sage 300cloud with plenty of tools for you to use. As your business grows, you can add more options to build out the exact system you need without the headache of migrating to a new platform.
In addition to these great basic features, the newer update of Sage 300cloud includes the following additions.

- Anytime, anywhere access

With so much in one package, it’s no wonder that Sage 300cloud makes “customers for life.” Throughout every stage of the business life-cycle, Sage 300cloud supports your business processes and needs.
Customizable Web-Based Interface
The third C in Sage 300cloud is customizable—the “have it your way” version of Sage. New for 2018 is the completely customizable web interface.
It makes sense to allow every worker to create their own customizable interface. After all, the CFO needs a very different daily view of the company than the marketing director or the warehouse manager. Each person can now decide what goes on their daily dashboard. It makes it easy to see, at a glance, the exact information you need to do your best work.
