To get this application setup quickly and effectively, this section is divided into two sub-sections, covering a basic installation right up until connecting your first Sage Company. With all the options considered this is a large system to configure to specific requirements, but with these guides you should be able to get operational quickly, with a full access admin account, with all licensed modules available and the ability to carry out some test requests, invoice approvals etc. This should allow you to roll out the system across your organisation in a structured manner.
