iS5 Communications Goes All Out With Sage ERP X3 
Mississauga Networking Company With Complex Set of Needs Finds Ideal
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/19/13 --  Sage North America
announced today that iS5 Communications of Mississauga, Ontario, has
made the move to Sage ERP X3. iS5 Communications designs,
manufactures, installs and services network routing equipment for use
in harsh environments, such as those encountered in the utility,
transportation, industrial, military and surveillance industries.
While the company is young, its management team is a veteran group of
professionals in this field. When iS5 Communications sought scalable,
integrated, flexible and powerful ERP software capable of taking the
company from startup to success, it zeroed in on one solution, Sage
ERP X3.  
The broad functionality of Sage ERP X3 is an ideal fit for the varied
requirements of this dynamic organization. Each product sold by iS5
Communications is custom built to the exacting requirements of each
customer, and the product configurator tool in Sage ERP X3 greatly
simplifies this task. Sales personnel can walk customers through the
various product options and then produce a quote detailing the price
and configuration. When the order is approved, the software
automatically produces a work order to build the equipment. Sage ERP
X3 even offers shipping and manifesting capabilities that enable iS5
to get completed orders out the door and on their way quickly and
"I have used many ERP applications during my career," said Clive
Dias, president and CEO of iS5 Communications. "What always plagued
these applications was the lack of integration. None of them offered
all the tools we needed in a single system. We used other add-on
applications to provide the necessary functionality." 
Dias sought to avoid integration challenges when selecting ERP
software for his enterprise. A trusted, long-term business partner
recommended Sage ERP X3. With the help of its business partner, iS5
launched the accounting and financial reporting modules of Sage ERP
X3 quickly. Currently the team is planning for the deployment of the
balance of the solution, including the manufacturing, distribution
and CRM components.  
"We went big with Sage ERP X3. We invested in software capable of
taking this company far. Our business model is complex, and Sage ERP
X3 offers the international capabilities, scalability and advanced
manufacturing toolset that we need to grow right now," said Dias.
