Robert Lavery and Associates, a leader in the representation of Sage integrated solutions, joined hands with APS Payments, a REPAY Company, to host a successful two-day virtual Sage 300 Ecosystem Summit. The event was also sponsored by 16 integrated Sage 300 ISV solutions who shared their expertise. Key Solutions 2021 was a tremendous success, bringing together both Sage partners and end-users for two days of product education, road-map discussions, as well as integration walk-throughs.
Robert Lavery, President at Robert Lavery and Associates noted:
“What was clear from the event was the commitment of these ISVs to continue improving and enhancing their solutions through creative innovation and new technology adoption that drives productivity and growth in critical areas of organizations by leveraging trends toward mobility, automation of processes, data integration, advanced reporting tools and collaboration.”
As we in the Sage ecosystem continue to push forward to support businesses throughout North America, the level of participation seen during the event provided critical insight to how businesses are adapting and growing today. During the APS Payments session, we highlighted the importance of partner and customer feedback, while providing an in-depth understanding of the trends that are driving change in the B2B payments space. Some of the noteworthy B2B Payments Trends from the ‘The State of the Connected Customer’ report are:
- 82% of B2B Buyers want the same experience when they are making business purchases as they have when making personal purchases
- 75% of B2B Buyers say that having a connected process is important to winning business
- 75% of B2B Buyers used social media to support purchasing decisions
The keynote speakers, Regina Crowshaw, the Director of ISV Partner Strategy & Sales and Programs, North America at Sage and Todd Black, the Director of Partner Commerce at Sage, highlighted the importance of reaching beyond functionality available out-of-the-box with Sage 300 and leveraging solutions available within the Sage ecosystem to streamline business processes and support existing business challenges. Robert Lavery added,
“Customers using Sage 300 can benefit greatly from investing in these solutions to achieve better performance, improved customer service, streamlined supply chains and cost reductions.”
Sessions topics throughout the event ranged from Workflow Automation, Field Sales Management, eCommerce, Document Management, Budgeting, and B2B Payments. If you or a colleague missed the event, all recordings are available now.
“The feedback we have received from Sage partners and end-users following the event was overwhelmingly positive. I am so happy that APS Payments and Robert Lavery and Associates were able to come together to provide such an impactful virtual event. The community made it clear that when all ISVs within the Sage Eco-System come together, everyone wins. We can better support those businesses that we touch and share in building a road toward growth for our partners. What really stands out for me is the tremendous support we had from our sponsors within the ISV community, and though this was our first year hosting Key Solutions Summit with the RLA team, our Sage Partners and End-Users overwhelmingly came out to hear what we had to share about where our integrations can go,” said Devon Lildhar Executive Channel Manager for Sage 300 at APS Payments.
