SAGE HELPS MANUFACTURERS TO IMPROVE THEIR EFFICIENCY, PRODUCTIVITY AND PROFITS

In conjunction with key channel partners, Sage is running a series of free seminars for the manufacturing industry, demonstrating how they can reap the
benefits of integrating a Sage accounting system with manufacturing
software, for the complete business solution.

The seminars will provide information on the implementation of a complete Sage Line 100 accounting and manufacturing solution, which will help businesses to:

* Improve their cost efficiency and control.
* Optimise their use of resources.
* Control the quality of their output.
* Exceed the expectations of their customers.
* Maximise their profitability.

As the manufacturing industry becomes increasingly competitive, it has never
been more important to ensure that companies have the right software to manage their businesses. Sage has recognised this need and has worked very closely with its developer community who produce software solutions designed pecifically for the manufacturing industry.

Bill Hill, Sage vertical market development manager, said: "It is no longer
possible to simply 'make do' with old plant machinery, uninspiring technologies and inadequate working practices."

"Competition is fierce and the only way companies will survive is to make their businesses work smarter. Investing in new technology may seem like an investment many manufacturers cannot afford to make at the moment but it is
vital if they want to withstand harsh economic conditions and maintain their
competitive edge."

"We can offer a market leading, fully integrated Sage Line 100 accounting
software solution, which, when linked to the specialist applications developed by our manufacturing partners Infor:swan, SMS, Economic Data Services or Colbek Systems, can offer manufacturers a comprehensive and fully integrated solution."
