How We Work

Why choose The Northern Path?

You cant get closer to experts in business software than a team, who designed, trained, supported and delivered it for Sage.

Our experience of working directly for a software author enables us to provide first-hand experience of how software solutions should be delivered and used. Northern Path
The Northern path

The Northern Path was formed by a team of ex-Sage employees who have extensive experience in providing and delivering not only business solutions, but business process improvements. As an example the business founder Chris Hawley alone has over 20 years experience working for Sage and their products, partners and customers including Product Managing the highly successful Sage 200 Suite for over 5 years.

Its about what we do and also what we wont do Northern Path

Our business vision is to make sure you get the most out of your current software investment first and to make sure it supports your growth and strategic requirements. To be clear we are not here to provide software for the sake of it, we are experts at making what you have even better - but if you do need to upgrade as your business evolves we will be with you every step of the way. From our experience a lot of people upgrade too early (our advice is to review all your options first).

Their new software did exactly what their old software did it just looked different!

Just as importantly we understand how it has to fit your business, to support your processes and not the other way around. This means that we are able to provide the software as it was intended, as part of the overall business solution and not as an afterthought.

Weve seen it all too often where the delivery of a new system doesnt go well in a company whether thats because it doesnt do what was expected, doesnt match processes, the training and set up werent up to scratch or your team arent bought into it.

One of our pet hates is knowing that the majority of businesses only use a fraction of the functionality available within their chosen Sage product. We've lost track of hearing 'we did'nt know it could do that!' Northern Path
