Sage North America plans to officially unveil version 6.2 of its ERP X3 product on June 2, with over 320 enhancements to v6.1, including simplified deployment, global accessibility, and added mobility features.

The first major enhancement to the new version of the midmarket-focused enterprise resource planning product allows businesses to run a global organization from one single instance of the system, while complying with the local regulations and business rules of each country in which they conduct business.

Sage ERP X3 V6.2 also offers Sage Enterprise WebTop, which enhances collaboration with mobile access to key areas. The new version also includes user-defined dashboards and an embedded business intelligence engine. In addition, the Sage ERP X3 V6.2 Standard Edition is designed to decrease implementation time, according to Sage director of product marketing Jean Huy.

“I think one of the standout features [of version 6.2] is that it doesn’t look like ERP at all,” said Huy. “It looks like a browser, and it’s not a modular suite so you get lots of features and functions embedded in the system to activate, depending on what you need and when you need it. For the accounting world, I think we will really change the midmarket space. This is definitely a mid- to large enterprise product. With X3 we are solving for midsized customers who have the same type of business management needs as large companies, but not as much IT muscle. We are bringing the functionality they need, but in a simpler, more cost-effective package.”

Sage ERP X3 6.2 Premium is available now, while v6.2 Standard will ship in mid-June.
