Percipient Use Sage Enterprise Management Internally
As well as installing Sage Enterprise Management for our customers, we also made the decision to use it internally here at Percipient.
It’s important to us that we invest time in finding out what our customer’s think about our service’s and our products, so we thought we’d conduct an internal product review with our Business Administration Apprentice, Aleisha Tipton.
Aleisha joined the Percipient team over a year and a half ago, through our apprenticeship scheme. Her goal was to achieve her Accountancy AAT qualifications and she is now currently completing her second apprenticeship in accounting with us.
We managed to grab a few moments of Aleisha’s time to ask her some questions about how she has found using Sage Enterprise Management as part of the Percipient finance team.
How long have you been using Sage Enterprise Management?
I started to use Sage Enterprise Management 17 months ago when I first joined Percipient. At first, I had no knowledge of Sage and now I use it every day. Each time I was given a new process to learn in Sage it was seamless, and I was able to use it within days with no faults.
What is your favourite thing about using Sage Enterprise Management?
The customisation capabilities are the best thing about Sage, if you have a lot of experience doing a certain process and then get an idea on how to make it better; it can probably be done in Sage.
What was it like using the system for the first time?
For me I had no accounting experience at all, initially it is overwhelming, as with all new concepts. But it was mere hours to learn a single process; and only a few days to learn almost all the processes I needed to do my job.
What does your day to day usage of Sage Enterprise Management involve?
I use Sage everyday for many different tasks. I input Purchase Invoices, create Purchase Orders, process Expenses and create Sales Invoices, to name but a few. I am also able to run reports for credit control and reconciliations.
Has the system benefited your Accountancy Apprenticeship in any way?
Getting to grips with an accounting system like Sage has been a massive help and the use of reports has helped me even more, being able to see where the debit matches the credit and where the accounts balance each other off has helped me get a great understanding of accountancy.
We continue to add functionality to our Sage Enterprise Management system so that we can benefit from the enhancements to our internal finance function.
Using the powerful Sage Enterprise Intelligence (SEI) reporting module, we soon plan to roll out an advanced credit control module closely followed by Expense Management.
