How to keep your Sage 500/1000 Data Alive After Switching to a New ERP

If you are a Sage 500/1000 user, you may be wondering what to do with your legacy data as Sage prepares to retire these products. You may have decades of valuable information stored in your C-ISAM data structures, but how can you migrate them to a new ERP system without losing or compromising them?

This is a common challenge faced by many businesses that rely on Sage 500/1000 for their accounting, sales & stock needs.  

One option is to look for a new ERP system that can handle your current and future business requirements. However, this comes with its own challenges. Most ERP migration plans only involve importing open transactions, balances, and physical stock levels. They do not include historical data, which means you lose the ability to perform year-on-year analysis and reporting. You may end up relying on external Excel spreadsheets, which are prone to errors and inefficiencies.

Another challenge is to remap or reindex your master data, such as customer, supplier, and stock codes, to match the new ERP system’s format. This can be very difficult or impossible to do in Excel, especially for historical transactions.

So how can you avoid these pitfalls and ensure a smooth and successful ERP migration? This is where Hopton Analytics can help. 

Hopton Analytics is a company that specialises in helping businesses migrate their data from Sage 500 / Sage 1000 to a new ERP system, without losing any of their historical data or compromising their reporting capabilities.

Sage 500 1000

We have developed a set of easy-to-use tools that allow you to extract, store, reindex and map your Sage data to your new ERP system, and then use our BI dashboards to perform year-on-year comparisons and analysis. 

Our solution consists of four components: 

  • Hopton Secure Data Warehouse: This is a SaaS-hosted Azure secure database where we extract your Sage data and store it safely and securely. 
  • Hopton Data Transition Tables: This is where you enter the reindex data for your master records, such as customers, suppliers and stock items, and store them in the Hopton Secure Data Warehouse. This allows you to change the format of your data to match the new ERP system’s requirements. 
  • Hopton Data Extraction Tool: This is where we extract the new master record data from the Hopton Secure Data Warehouse and provide it to your new ERP system. This ensures that your data is consistent and accurate across both systems. 
  • Hopton Decision Intelligence: This is where we map your new live ERP data with your archived Sage data and build dashboards that allow you to perform year-on-year comparisons and analysis. This gives you the insight and intelligence you need to make better business decisions. 

The benefit of this approach is that you can access your archived Sage 500/1000 data anytime, anywhere, without the need for an expensive Sage/SQL licence or an on-premise server. You can also save time, money, and resources by avoiding manual data entry and Excel spreadsheets. You can focus on growing your business with confidence and clarity.
