Leading underwater equipment and clothing supplier, Northern Diver International Ltd, has found significant improvements and benefits from implementing Sage 200 with leading Sage Business Partner, Datel. Datel, a Sage Customer Development Centre of Excellence and Sage 200 Business Partner of the Year 2009, specialises in assisting businesses navigate the Sage software range.

Datel customer, Northern Diver International Ltd, has been sharing the businesses benefits they have enjoyed since upgrading their Sage Line 100 system to Sage 200.

With success and growth comes a need for a software system that can support the business’ activities. Northern Diver adopted Sage Line 100 when it was the market leading product. Over the years, however, as the DOS based system became dated and the requirements of Northern Diver increased a more up-to-date package was required.

Northern Diver was established in the early 1980’s and since then the company has become one of the most innovative, competitive and reliable names in the underwater equipment sector. In addition to conventional recreational use, Northern Diver products are found in harsh environments such as military, commercial diving, and fire, search and rescue.

Sage 200, a SQL based accounting and CRM software suite, provided Northern Diver with a solution they were able to use to build on their existing processes in Sage Line 100 and utilise the advanced technology of the updated Sage system.

Ian McLeod, general manager at Northern Diver, comments on the decision to move to Sage 200, “Sage Line 100 had served us well, but over time, as we became increasingly ambitious as a business and as we entered new markets, we recognised that we’d pushed Sage Line 100 to the limits and needed a more powerful system – a full Microsoft SQL Server based one – that could provide more comprehensive support.”

Better reporting was a key requirement in making the move to a new product and this is exactly what Ian has found with the Sage 200 system, “Sage 200 gives us the essential information we need to run our business effectively. The reports designer is much better and enables us to produce reports tailored to our business. Having easy access to up-to-date information helps us to build on what we do well and look at where to focus our attention and resources for the forthcoming period.”

Datel works with many Sage Line 100 users to guide them through the upgrade to a better Sage system to ensure that Sage 200 works for any given business. For more information visit Datel.info.
