erp-work-flowOne of the main reasons people use ERP systems in their companies is to save the amount of time they spend on their work, and in the process, speed up all their processes. One of today’s popular ERP systems is the Sage ERP X3 which omes with many time-saving and useful features like workflow notifications.

Define Sage ERP X3 workflow notifications

If you wonder what a Sage ERP X3 workflow notification is, they are emails that are generated based on triggers that have been previously set in the X3 system. The benefit of using these notifications is that the associated employee is informed about the event, who upon receiving the notification will be able to accordingly and quickly take action.

A typical example of a workflow notification is generating an email when a customer’s credit limit is changed by a user. Once complete, the notification is then sent to the Accounting Manager.

Here are a few tips a Sage ERP X3 consultant had compiled to explain the meaning of the above mentioned example, and how it actually works.

  • A typical workflow notification has a box located on the upper right side of the screen. This is where you can choose if you want the trigger or the notification to be sent on the Creation, Modification or Deletion of the object or event of discussion.
  • It is possible to send the notification to not only one person, but two recipients.
  • The workflow notification has a message subject and body area where it is possible to include table fields. It is this feature that lets you customize the email you plan to send to the recipients.
  • The above description describes a simple workflow notification. If required, you can also use the Workflow Events function for the more complicated workflow processes in your company. The benefit of this Workflow Events function is that it boasts of an extensive functionality which includes additional processes. An example of such a process is where a signature approval is needed to send the notification.

If you wonder why you should work with a Sage ERP X3 consultant, it is because technology is not always the main thing that differentiates between one business solution to another. Many a time, it is the partner you choose while you make the journey, who is usually someone you trust and will be able to depend on to reach your goals, which makes the difference!

Why is failure a scary thing?


Perhaps it’s because our identities are linked with what we are doing. If you fail at something suddenly YOU feel like you have become a failure. Your thoughts start spiralling out of control and before you know it you are having a conversation similar to this in your mind:

“You can’t do that because you failed at XYZ” ..

“No I can do this”

“Yeah right no you can’t, YOU FAIL AT THINGS”

Have you become your biggest discourager?

When you start believing that you are not defined by failings you can stop the worrying! Whether you win or loose that does not define who you are.

Guess what, even the hugely successful people have failed at things…

Check out below 7 people who didn’t allow failure to define who they were.

1.  Richard Branson

Richard has failed many times; his first company didn’t make any money at all. He also saw failures in the area of soft drinks, fashion, cars and digital downloads. Even when the space world mocked him he is still building space shuttles.

2.     Colonel Sanders (KFC Founder)

The Colonel had his famous recipe rejected over 1000 times before being accepted. Now try finding someone who doesn’t like indulging in a bucket of his chicken!

3.    Henry Ford

Founded 2 car companies that failed and left him with no money. He then founded Ford Motor Company and became the first to apply assembly line manufacturing for cars.

 4.    Walt Disney

When Walt was 22 he was fired from a Missouri newspaper for ‘not being creative enough’. He now holds the record for winning the most Oscars, creating the iconic Disney characters we love today and lets face it the happiest theme park on the planet.

5.    Jim Carrey

Jim was booed of stage at his first comic stand-up. He never gave up and is now renowned for his contribution to comedy and iconic characters such as Stanley Ipkiss (The Mask) and Ace Ventura.

6.     J.K Rowling

Harry Potter was rejected by 12 major publishers before a small publishing house took a chance on her. No one would have blamed her for giving up, she continued to believe in her stories and has now sold over 400 million books worldwide.

 7.    Elon musk

At various points in time Elon had to deal with Tesla being on the brink of bankruptcy, being fired on his honeymoon and not to mention the first PayPal idea earned ‘top 10 worst business idea of the year’.


This is only scratching the surface of the many ‘failure to success’ stories that are out there. So next time you have a wobbly moment, just remember it does not define who you are.

4 reasons to get out of your comfort zone

Its called a ‘comfort’ zone for a reason, because it’s the place we humans like to be…to feel safe. You may have battled out of that comfort zone before and gradually found yourself saying “hey how did I get back here!”.

Reason 1: For the Results

Feeling frustrated at where you are in life? Nothing seems to be changing? Consequently are you working so hard but getting the same output? I’m sure most people have heard the term ‘you have to do something different to see something different’. Its just like going to the gym, if you want to become a weight lifter you need to start pumping weights. Your body won’t change if you sit at home and eat ice cream.

Reason 2: To Surprise yourself on what you can do

You may want to learn to play an instrument, run a marathon, learn a language or even climb Mount Everest. Start challenging yourself, you will be surprised on what you can achieve. The human body and mind can do extraordinary things when put to the test.

Reason 3: To Face your fears

Is there something that you want to do, It could be stepping out and taking a leap of faith. I would like to propose that its time to step out of your comfort zone and face that fear. Just like the picture says make a change TODAY. Don’t procrastinate, there will always be a reason why tomorrow looks and sounds better but when you get there you will wish you had started the week/month/year before.

Tomorrow you will wish you had started today

In an article ‘How to live life without major regrets’ one of the top lessons was ‘spending too much time worrying’. Life is too short, worrying will not add a day to your life.

Reason 4: To Inspire others

You will be surprised how many people are watching you. You do not know who you can influence and what impact you can have on someone. It may take you stepping out to do something that will stir someone else to do the same.
