Thanks to my friend Wayne Shulz for bringing this to my attention.
As you may know, version 4.4 of Sage MAS90 and MAS200 is due out in the next 3 to 6 months.  This version brings out some key enhancements and is a fairly substantial upgrade from version 4.3
The Inventory, Purchase Order and Bill Of Materials module get brought into the Business Framework.  This means you have the Crystal based reports, the resizable windows, the flexible grids, the easy and powerful User Defined Fields (UDF’s) etc.
There are also some expansions that have been a long time coming.  The Customer number gets expanded to 20 characters and the item number gets expanded to 30.  (These changes are optional)
One big not so obvious feature is the ability to run VB Scripts based on actions a user takes.  This will allow power users and consultants the ability to customize the solution in many ways that previously required a source code ProvideX programmer.  These changes, like UDF’s, are above the source code and should migrate to new versions much easier.
An example might be to add a UDF to a sales order line.  That UDF is a lookup list of vendors.  Then place a button on the Sales Order that will automatically place purchase orders for each item on a sales order to the vendor chosen.  Very cool!
To get a look at these new features, Sage’s normally NOT free Sage University Anytime Learning system has a FREE course on these features.
