About us

Who we are -
The X3C team

Jaco started the business over 20 years ago when he emigrated to the UK from South Africa. He is an expert in sage software and is often called upon by Sage themselves to help implement the software. X3 Consulting was born from the idea of Jaco’s unique expertise and solution solving around Sage and the implementation of the software. Jaco went on to develop a unique scoping tool to alleviate some if the issues companies faced when implementing software. As the business expanded, Nick join the ranks in 1998 and the business has continued to grow and develop a customer focussed team of Sage experts. With Nick’s experience of Sage and his commercial knowledge, X3C has the foundations of a expert partner and dedicated team to help your business transition and grow with Sage software.
