What’s new in Sage Evolution Business Gateway?

Structural changes
-Entirely new technology platform
-The previous system was written using older technology which got in the way of new development.
-The new system is written using current best-practise technology and techniques which will make system maintenance.


Focus on ease of installation
- The previous system was very difficult to install. Installers needed fairly advanced knowledge of IIS and Component services.
- The new system is much simpler to set up.


New feature highlights
- Dashboard landing page – provides a quick overview of current tasks and progress.
- Fully mobile – screens and charts can be viewed on devices like smartphones and tablets. Flash charts fall back to html5 so that they can still display on devices that don’t support flash.
- Statement drill-downs – this was the most requested feature for the previous version.
- Procurement – PO approvals provides access to approving managers that are rarely in the office.
- Much more administrative information and control.
