Resources to help you meet your customers' requirements.

As an ex-Tetra Development Manager, Rob Humphreys founded M4 to work solely to benefit the partner community, giving independently tailored solutions when the individual needs of the user go beyond the standard software.

M4 has worked alongside Sage (formerly Tetra) since 1989. We have established a position sitting comfortably between Sage and the partner community, providing additional modules and tailored enhancements for Sage 500/1000 systems. M4 was awarded the status of  "Complementary Software House" in 1993.

Having been in this field for 20 years, M4 has acquired a vast knowledge of Sage Enterprise products, which enables us to produce enhancements that fit seamlessly into the standard software. In addition to our tailoring service, we offer a range of complementary modules that have been constructed to help provide a quick, easy and cost-effective solution to the most commonly requested enhancements.

M4 services - Tailoring

Tailoring can range from simple, single-day enhancements to complex subsystems, and is developed using Sage's own C-Base language to blend unnoticeably into the user's system. Quotations can be provided within 24 hours for smaller jobs, while projects that require a more detailed specification will be dealt with on a one-to-one basis either with the partner or, with permission, directly with the user.
