Viking Management Systems Ltd, previously known as Viking Micro Systems, was founded in 1988 and operated from a shop in the centre of Pocklington, a market town on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. The company’s initial objective was to supply software accounting solutions to local businesses. Our edge over our competitors right from the start was the ability to provide full life circle assistance from initial consultancy, advice and data migration to upgrades and day to day support.
Initially Viking manufactured our own range of workstations and servers; this prompted the move in 1991 to purpose built offices and workshop on the Pocklington Industrial Estate. By 1998 we had outgrown the Hereford Road site and moved to our current offices also on the Pocklington Industrial Estate.
We have been partnering with Sage for over 25 years and our knowledge of Sage products and the mid-market is second to none. We were already a Sage Sterling partner and became a Sage Sovereign Development Centre in 1988 when Sage bought Skymaster and renamed it Sovereign. Since then Sage have renamed the Sovereign product range Line 100, MMS and Sage 200. So our roots and knowledge of Sage accounting software go right back to the inception of the software range.
