Slide 2 – What is our Mid Market Portfolio Vision (NEEDS REWORK)Slide 2 – What is our Mid Market Portfolio Vision Let’s take a look at Sage’s mid market portfolio vision. As you have seen the mid market is not new to us – we have hundreds of thousands of customers that we have been serving across the globe for several years.Our mid market vision has withstood the test of time and changing economic climates … simply put, it has been around providing a superior customer experience and solving our customers’ complex business processes at an affordable total cost of ownership.We have successfully served a market that has consisted of midsized companies to divisions of large multi-national enterprises.What differentiates us is that our solutions are highly specialized. For example - In the US we are a market leader in the construction and real estate market. We run a healthcare vertical. And products like X3 are targeting sectors such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, life sciences, and food and beverages. MAS 90 and Accpac have a leadership position within sectors such as wholesales distribution and discrete manufacturing. Additionally, we rely on a team of hundreds of business partners (EMPHASIZE) and 3rd party developers who customize our mid market applications for the SME sector.We are taking these years of experiences from serving thousands of mid market companies into account as we have developed our Global SME strategy
Slide 5- What makes us different? As I present positioning to analysts and media across North America, I often get asked the question “What makes Sage different”. Here is my response.It starts with our customers – all 6 million of them. Sage prides itself in its ability to connect with its customers. In some ways we have learned the lessons the hard way by making a single focused commitment to serving these customers. What they tell us gets reflected in our road maps and future commitmentsNext is our heritage as an application provider committed to the SMB market. Business management software is all we do and that’s why we do it right. Despite all the global expansion that Sage has enjoyed, we have stayed true to our commitment of being the leading business application provider for the SMB market. (Our heritage serves as a platform from where we need to go……..) Equally important is providing customer a choice with their business management applications. We understand no two customers are the same. Markets are not the same and industries are not the same. And that’s why we provide choice and fit in our portfolio. Unlike our competition, we don’t take a single solution and stretch it across markets and the globe and industries and claim to be global and vertical. That would be too simple but not credible. Instead we provide the right fit for the right marketAnd we realize that we cannot do this alone. We need the help of our business partners, third party developers, and some cases strategic alliances to honestly fulfill this commitment. Our vibrant eco-system consisting of thousands of connected entities is yet another differentiators. Later today you will hear from Christophe and team, how Sage ERP X3 has leveraged similar strategic alliances to add more value to the product.And last but not the least; we back this up with World Class Services. (USE HELP INSTEAD OF MANAGE) We take pride in each of the 35,000 plus customer calls that we receive every day. It takes just one customer escalation to get our management teams involved – because despite having millions of customers .. each one matters to us.
