Sage 200 Support Boundaries

Sage 200 Support Boundaries

This Sage 200 support matrix aims to assist you with a quick reference guide as to what tasks or issues are typically included within a standard support contract and which would be considered additional consultancy.

This is by no means a definitive list of all tasks, but it does include the most commonly raised questions.

This matrix also corresponds to the support contracts offered by GCC.

It is important to appreciate that whilst GCC service desk staff may have accountancy knowledge, they are not accountants. As such, they will only ever offer support and advice on the Sage 200 product, how it works, and how to get the best out of the software.

Whilst the service desk can offer advice on where you might find the differences between your Debtors/Creditors reports and Nominal Ledger balance, it is not the role of support to find these differences for you.

The service desk will offer you ways in which you can investigate how to identify differences. If you require further assistance, this would require consultancy on a chargeable basis.

Sage 200 requires a Microsoft SQL (database) Server to host the database, the MS SQL Server software and server it resides upon will be the responsibility of your internal IT support team or third-party IT support company. As will any database related backups or copies being made.

We are able to assist with SQL work such as creating copy companies and doing backups for year ends, but this would be consultancy work.

Where GCC support your infrastructure, we will provide you with additional SQL services as part of your dual-support.

GCC do not recommend accessing Sage 200 remotely unless it is via a properly configured Microsoft Terminal Services system or a Citrix remote desktop system. VPN access does not negate the need for a remote desktop services server.

We’re here to assist.
