From Core Financials and Project Management to Distribution and Manufacturing, Sage MAS 90 and 200 4.4 is filledwith features. You’ll be able to work even more productively with additional features and enhancements focused on workflow and business process – especially in the inventory, purchase order, bill of materials and bar code areas of the system. All of these modules have been brought up to the latest business framework. Included in Sage MAS 90 and 200 version 4.4 are some of the most requested customer enhancements and usability improvements.
Customer and Item Numbers can be expanded in 4.4, with 20 alphanumeric characters available to be used for Customer numbers, and 30 for Item Numbers. These new character field lengths allow you to add specific information to improve your workflow and enhance business processes. Identify the customer you want easier using up to 20 characters by using full company names, or adding coded or themed information, which assists in easy identification for multiple accounts of the same or similar names, and more. Using 30 character item numbers improves productivity and business workflow with smart part numbers, such as a UPC, recycling codes, a vendor number, special handling requirements information, and more.
To help you drive efficiency, you’ll be able to migrate to the new version with more control and at much greater convenience to your company. Parallel Migration will allow you to continue operating your business on your existing Sage MAS 90 or 200 system while the new 4.4 system is getting prepared and tested – minimizing downtime and reducing the risk of transitioning from test to live.
In 4.4, Custom Office enhancements allow you to program events to run with or without user interaction (clicking a button), in addition to the ability to add user-defined fields and additional buttons. Customizations done using Custom Office now survive upgrades throughout most of your system, including those in Inventory Management, Purchase Order, Bill of Materials, and Bar Code. For example, you can add expiration dates or other attributes for lot and serial items, and that information flows through the system. Another example for customizations using standard scripting is Sales Oder Entry expiration dates can automatically change if Quote is chosen as the Order type.
Save valuable time and streamline the workflow of your physical count. Be assured of accuracy, by printing the system Quantity On Hand directly on the physical count worksheet, arranged in the order you desire. Your warehouse manager is aware of the expected count, as they supervise the item count. Then, to further streamline the process, the expected quantity can be set as the default, so only your changes require an entry.
