Understanding Sage X3 pricing is an important consideration for any business looking to acquire new financial management software. At Panni Management, we understand that finding the right software solution can be challenging, especially when trying to balance the needs of your business with cost-effectiveness. We have created this guide to help you understand the pricing structure for Sage X3 ERP software.
By the end of this guide, you will have a comprehensive understanding of how Sage X3 pricing is formulated and how to choose a package that best suits the needs of your business.
How Does The Pricing Work?
Many different aspects can influence the pricing of your Sage software solution, and it is almost impossible to give a one-size-fits-all accurate quote of how much the product will cost. There are, however, 5 factors that can be used to explain the mix-and-match process behind the pricing.
The price of your Sage X3 solution will vary depending on these factors:
The Base or Bundle
There are different bundles available for Sage X3. These bundles have been predetermined to meet various industries and companies’ enterprise resource planning needs. An example of how these bundles are preconfigured is as follows:
- There may be a bundle for Financials only.
- The bundle for Distribution, however, will also include Financials.
- The bundle for Manufacturing processes includes both Distribution and Financials.
This allows you to choose the bundle that sufficiently matches your business processes and requirements without paying for features you would not necessarily need.
There are several standard Sage X3 user roles and licensing, and Sage X3 offers concurrent user licensing defined by user role. , which is a very powerful and useful licensing model that can help businesses control their licensing costs. If a company has 10 users, but no more than 5 users log in at any single time, the company only needs to buy 5 licences. Different roles will have other access privileges and restrictions, and roles that require additional functionality are more expensive. As the business unit manager or owner, you will be able to create multiple users that can view the system at the same time, while a handful will be able to make modifications and edits.
Adjustments to pricing will be made depending on how many user roles and licensing you require. The user roles include:
- Administrator – Can access security setup, maintenance and database tools.
- Full – Can access all functions before enablement.
- Accounting – Can access budgeting, accounting and fixed assets transactions.
- Operational – Can access purchasing, sales and inventory management.
- Manufacturing – Can access distribution and production.
- Transactional – Can input PO requisitions and expenses.
- Warehouse – Handheld devices for collecting distribution and production data.
- Report full user.
- Report viewer user.
There are several add-ons available for Sage X3. This includes optional modules that deliver advanced features such as EDI, scheduling, etc. These add-ons can also be acquired as business growth creates new requirements. The number of add-ons your company decides to add to Sage X3 will impact your plan’s pricing.
There are several ways that you may choose to install and maintain your Sage X3 software. Different deployment options will affect the price range of your Sage X3 software solution. The user experience (UX) starts via a browser and can be deployed from:
- On-premise servers hosted by the customer.
- Private hosting by Panni Cloud.
- Multi-tenant SaaS solutions by Sage.
Implementation and Partner Services
When it comes to understanding Sage X3 pricing, it’s important to remember that there are several other services that may also contribute to the overall cost of your solution. One such example is the implementation and partner services. These services include the implementation strategy, installation, configuration, set-up and training. Additionally, ongoing support and customer service after installation are also important factors to consider.
It’s important to note that the cost of these services can vary depending on a number of variables such as the size of the project, the specific requirements of the project, and the capabilities of your staff. To ensure that you get the best software solution for your business at an affordable price, it’s crucial to carefully examine your company’s different needs and consider each one of these aspects when creating a customised plan for your business.
