Sage 300 ERP (formerly Accpac), Sage CRM and Sage ERP X3 technology and solutions provider Lorge, has celebrated its 28th year in business by once again being awarded Sage Premier Partner status, winning the Peresoft award for product sales in South Africa and the Pacific Technology Solutions South African dealer of the year award.

“This is the 19th consecutive year that Lorge has been recognised with major awards,” said Lorge Chief Executive Officer Derek Porter. “Our client base is expanding and our ability to provide innovative high technology, fit-for-purpose Sage financial and related business management software solutions has reached levels that we are extremely proud of.

“To still be receiving industry accolades after 28 years in business with a continuously expanding client base I believe indicates that our sales, support and training functions are soundly meeting the needs of the companies that come to us for business management software solutions, recommendations, implementations and upgrades.”

Porter and his team were presented with the awards, based on business achievements during 2013, at the Sage Insights Partner conference held at the Champagne Sports Resort in the Drakensberg.

The Pacific Technology Solutions dealer of the year award recognised Lorge’s consistently high ranking in global accounting software module sales for Pacific Technology Solutions, which has ranked Lorge first three times and second once in the past four years.

Pacific Technology Solutions business development manager Jamie Steele said Lorge’s sales performance was highly rated and confirmed that it was the highest selling Pacific Technology Solutions reseller world-wide in 2013. “The very low number of support cases Lorge sends us confirms that they have a sizable support team and hold extensive expertise in our solutions.”

Headquartered in Midrand, Lorge provides and supports Sage 300 ERP, Sage CRM, Sage ERP X3 and Business Intelligence solutions, as well as complementary products including Technisoft Service Manager, Pacific Workflow and Peresoft Cashbook, within a wide range of commercial and industrial enterprises throughout Africa.

Porter said Lorge operates in a wide range of business sectors including healthcare, engineering and infrastructure, mining, manufacturing, packaging, distribution and many others.

“Our specialist knowledge, proven methodology and the comprehensive experience and expertise developed over the past 28 years provide a solid foundation for us to offer commercial and industrial organisations with financial and business software solutions that meet the specific requirements of most business sectors,” said Porter.
