Setting Up Accounts Payable Expense Distribution Tables in Sage 100 ERP (MAS90, MAS200)

Setting up Templates for Distributing GL Accounts in Accounts Payable

Not everybody is aware that a few years ago Sage added the ability to setup templates so that when you post an AP bill it would get allocated to a variety of GL Accounts on the fly.  I actually designed this enhancement when it was built by Macabe Associates for one of our clients.  Macabe was later acquired by Sage and many of their enhancements were added into base Sage 100 ERP like this one.

To set it up, :

  • First go to the Accounts Payable>Setup>Accounts payable options screen.  From their click on the entry tab.
  • Check the box that says “Allow Total Distribution to be less than 100%” and hit Accept

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:

Getting Financing–How a New ERP System Can Help

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

Enterprise Accounting SoftwareThis article on our Microsoft Dynamics AX site is actually a applicable to anybody considering purchasing any new ERP system.

It discusses the benefits of how a modern ERP solution can significantly impact how your bank and other financial backers view your business and can increase the odds of you getting the financing you are looking for.

I’ve seen numerous companies over the years struggle with financing where a big factor was their use of QuickBooks which doesn’t follow GAAP principals.  It’s ‘loosy goosy’ features, that end users love, make accountants and bankers cringe. The ability to ‘cook the books’ with low end solutions like that often give financial institutions pause, even if you are actually clean as a whistle.

Here is the full blog post:

Getting Financing due to a Modern ERP System

Technology Can’t Solve all Business Problems

Friday, June 21st, 2013

By Mark Chinsky

It is a common problem that seems to course through every consulting business. A consultant works on the client’s problem but implementing a new technology solution, only to discover that technology was only part of the original problem, and that it is personnel issues that are really at fault. When we rely too much on technology, it opens the doors for a whole slew of problems. Here is a closer look at some of the problems surrounding technology.

  1. It can’t make employees more efficient. Yes, the right technology can help make the work easier, but if an employee is truly falling behind or is just inefficient, all the technology in the world will not remedy the situation. The truth is that such employees are often inefficient due to either inexperience or laziness. The unwillingness to use new technology only heightens an already present problem. Adding new, faster technology will not fix the problem.
  2. It can’t improve communication. In some work places, there may be departments that do not communicate well with other departments. Using technology to find new ways to force these departments to communicate may fix the problem for a short period of time, but it is merely a bandage. While a new piece of technology may make it easier for these departments to communicate when it is necessary, it does not address the underlying problem. A better solution is sitting the departments down together and talking about the problem so that there can be a real solution.
  3. It won’t make up for a shortage of resources. Technology can make your workers more efficient, by supplying the necessary means to work better. However, if cannot make up for a limited number of staff. While the right technology can make the job of your current employees easier, if there simply aren’t enough people to handle the work load, technology won’t be able to fix everything.
  4. It can’t force employees to change. Technology is good for helping with change, not forcing it. Many business owners think that implementing new technology will result in big and better things. The truth is that if the wheels aren’t already in motion for a change, technology isn’t going to make change happen.

Technology is a good tool for improving businesses; however, there is only so much it can do. The success of using technology is to understand that it isn’t the whole solution. Rather, it is a merely part of a whole. The business and its employees must also be willing to work with that technology to achieve the desired goal.
