The e-txt Sage Alerts Wizard is priced from just £700 and allows management by exception since Alerts by email or SMS can be configured quickly and easily to be triggered by any change or absense of expected change to the database in Sage CRM.
Critically Alerts can just as easily be triggered by changes to Sage 200 (2009).
At http://www.e-txt.com/SageCRMPlug-inGuides you will find a link for a 7 minute video in both streaming and downloadable ZIP format. The video includes a voiceover and will give the you (or customers or others at Sage) an introduction to both the plug-in and the e-txt Sage Alerts Wizard.
The e-txt Sage CRM Alerts Wizard was created following a meeting with David Beard & Piers Thom during which Piers commented that he gets asked about Alerts during 80% of demonstrations.
