The answer is simple. Sage knows the needs of small-midsized business and provides those needs better than Microsoft can. Microsoft has entered the ERP midmarket industry just recently while Sage has been in this business for over 30 years. In order to position itself in the midmarket, Microsoft continuously acquired several SMB ERP software developer firms. Consequently, Microsoft has combined and blended the features of the different products they have acquired. As a result, Microsoft Dynamics came into existence. In addition, they have launched a series of aggressive marketing campaigns to compete with Sage.
A lot of ERP users are asking if Microsoft’s acquisition of several SMB software companies have made Microsoft Dynamics a better choice than Sage ERP MAS. Below are reasons why the midmarket still prefers Sage MAS 90, Sage MAS 200 when it comes to the midmarket ERP software of choice.
Let your business go beyond your ERP software’s limitations
To truly measure a company’s value, never judge it according to the size alone. Whether a company is big or small, size is not a solid basis for a company to be chosen as a preferred vendor. It is actually the “value” that a certain company provides which makes it the best choice. When it comes to Small-Midmarket ERP software, Sage is the name of reputation. Many companies’ growth and development are somehow being hindered or slowed down because their current ERP software cannot comprehend their needs. The good news is, Sage’s flagship ERP product lines namely Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 are flexible and scalable enough to adjust and cater your current and future business needs as your business grows.
It is a fact that every business has its own specific business needs according to its industry and it is the challenge of the ERP software to provide these needs.

Microsoft is merely rebranding their acquired products namely Solomon, Great Plains, Apaxta and Navision which was previously known as Microsoft Business Solutions. On the other hand, Sage mainly develops accounting, ERP and business software. It’s their business and specialty.
