Sage 200 and the tradeit ecommerce platform
Sage 200cloud helps businesses save time and support key decisions to the business critical data including sales, orders, invoices, productivity, budgets, profits and much more. Through our robust two-way integrations between Sage 200cloud and tradeit those time savings and support can be extended to include any online channels through functions such as:
- Offer multi-currency options online that are passed into Sage 200 where they can be managed or synchronised with different accounts to maximise interest earned or minimise overdraft charges. Exchange rates can be applied across different currencies and enforced when orders are placed from different channels. You manage the risk of exchange rate fluctuations so they don't affect your bottom line.
