As a result, Sage will now be providing the Sicon Manufacturing suite as their solution of choice for the SME UK Manufacturing market. We understand that this is quite a change so we wanted to put everything you need to know about Sicon Manufacturing in one place.

Unlike the legacy Sage offering, the Sicon manufacturing suite is constantly being developed and is also available as a group of optional modules. Meaning that you can choose which ones you wish to implement for your business, at the pace that suits you. Read on to find out everything you need to know about Sicon Manufacturing for Sage 2oo.
