Now available via electronic download, Sage 100 ERP 2013 (previously referred to as Version 5.0) boasts an impressive range of new features and enhancements designed to make the system more accessible and user friendly. Here is a look at the new and improved Sage 100 ERP.
New Visual Process Flows
The newest addition to the arsenal of Sage 100 ERP built-in self-help tools, Visual Process Flows are Interactive HTML pages that not only provide graphical workflow diagrams, but also include links to the various tasks along the way. So, they can serve as a visual representation of your workflow process, as well as a launching point for the screens and tasks required to perform the process. These customizable process flows make it easy for new customers to learn Sage 100 ERP and help existing users complete tasks that are performed infrequently, such as year-end processing.
Sage CRM Enhancements
With each new release, the integration between Sage 100 ERP and Sage CRM becomes more seamless. For example, the new Quick Order Entry screens now allows for quotes and orders to be processed directly within Sage CRM. There is no need to launch a separate Sales Order screen or even have Sage 100 ERP installed on the workstation.
Customers that are running more than one company or division can now align multiple ERP companies to a single Sage CRM database. This provides decision makers with a 360° view of customer activities, while sales and customer service staff have the ability to move efficiently between customers and prospects across companies and divisions.
More Connected Services
In order to provide you with additional features and functionality, Sage added more choices to the web-based Connected Services platform. Now you have even more options to customize your system with new specialized add-on services such as: Sage 100 ERP Shipping to automate your entire shipping process, a Federal and State eFiling service that auto-generates tax forms that are ready to print, sign, and send, and Sage 100 ERP Sales Tax powered by AvaTax.
Other Notable Enhancements
- Sage Advisor - Enables self-service management of Product Updates and new software releases.
- Credit Card Processing Enhancements - Securely accept credit cards using your mobile device, manage payment information anywhere, and cut down on merchant transaction fees.
- Inactive Customers & Vendors - Set profiles to "Inactive" to save important historical data while reducing clutter for faster searches and data entry.
