Things Sage ERP 100 Can Do

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013
Sage ERP 100 (MAS 90 & MAS200) can do things that many end users may not be aware of.

For years, we have already stumbled upon users Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 who call us complaining about their system. Well-rounded and in-depth Sage MAS 90 training addresses numerous information regarding the software’s features. As time goes on, people neglect the software’s capabilities in general and as a result they may feel that Sage ERP 100 (fka MAS 90 or Sage MAS 200) falls short of the functionality. Many clients come to us from other VAR’s when they weren’t happy with the level of service they were getting.  We often find out end users haven’t been fully trained or implemented and thus aren’t familiar with what the software they already own, or can add, can do.  This can be the reason why many aren’t familiar with what’s possible within the Sage ERP ecosystem

Here are a few features of Sage MAS 90 and Sage MAS 200 (Sage 100 ERP) which people are not often aware of:


Epicor 905.700 Schema. What’s changed?

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

Below is a document outlining all of the tables of Epicor 905.700 and color coded tables and fields that have been added, changed, or removed as well as tables.

This should be helpful if you are contemplating a 905.6x to 905.7x upgrade and want to know if any of your customizations might be impacted by the upgrade.  If a BAQ, BPM or other customization refer to a table or field name that has been changed or deleted, then obviously it’s something you are going to have to address during your upgrade.

This is a very long document so please keep that in mind.  It’s over 5300 pages!

We hope you find this helpful.

How to Perform Year End Closing in SAP Business One

Monday, November 5th, 2012


SAP Business One Closing Procedures

Performing the year end closing in SAP Business One is not as difficult as it may be in other traditional programs. For tips on preparing for your year end closing, please check out Tips for Year End Closing.

How to Close Your Year

First, check that all periods are in the “Open” state.

In SAP Business One, an open period can have one of three states: Closing Period, Unlocked Period, and Unlocked Except Sales. Go through and verify that none of your periods are in a Locked state. Periods should only be locked once they will no longer be used (ie: after your year end closing).

Second, launch the Period End Closing Tool. This tool is located at : Main Menu → Administration → Utilities → Period End Closing.

You must then select the General Ledger (GL) accounts that need to closed. Select them by clicking the check boxes. After you select the accounts, select the periods to close by choosing the first period of the year in the “From” drop down list, and the last period in the “To” drop down list.

Select the GL accounts for “Retained Earnings” and “Period End Closing”.

Then you must approve the recommended postings. Once completed, you will need to confirm transactions.

To do this, simply run the Balance Sheet Report for the last day of the previous year, and the first day of the new year to compare.

Tip: Make sure the check box “Add Closing Entries” is checked for the new year.

Compare the Retained Earnings in the two reports to check that everything was closed correctly at year end.

And that’s all! SAP Business One makes this process much simpler than it has historically been – Performing year end closing has never been this easy.
