Sage recently hosted a presentation that provides us with a glimpse of what’s ahead for Sage 100 in the near and mid-term. Here’s a quick peek at what to expect for the rest of 2020 and beyond.
New in the Sage 100 Ecosystem
A couple of new add-on solutions are expected in the Sage 100 ecosystem including:
Sage Enterprise Intelligence - a powerful, web-based business intelligence (BI) reporting tool that converts massive amounts of data from across your entire Sage 100 system (not just your financial modules) into meaningful insight and powerful real-time reports. Read this blog for a more detailed look at Sage Enterprise Intelligence (expected in July 2020).
Credit Hound - an accounts receivable collections management suite that helps reduce late payments and collect overdue invoices. Robust features include automated payment reminders, overdue customer reports, dispute management and more (expected in Summer 2020).
New Features and Product Updates
Here are some of the new or enhanced features that are expected for release later this year.
Sage 100 Payroll – a collection of updates and worksheets related to COVID-19 and tracking for Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act.
Partner-Requested Updates – a collection of enhancements requested by Sage Authorized Partners/Resellers including a new payments tab for Invoice History Inquiry (similar to the existing payments tab in Accounts Payable), a ‘Net Balance’ button for A/P Invoice Data Entry, and various Visual Integrator improvements.
Lot/Serial Traceability – continued “phase 2” enhancement of lot and serial number traceability that began in a previous release.
Sage Production Management – continued enhancements with emphasis on simplifying workflow and options related to creating work tickets from sales orders.
User Experience - various updates in response to user feedback including moving support chat to the main menu and better visibility and access to training resources and upcoming events.
It’s worth pointing out that many of the new features mentioned are exclusive to the Sage 100cloud subscription platform. If you’re still running the “classic” Sage 100 product, some of the new features in upcoming releases may not be available to you. Contact us if you’re interested in or want to learn more about migrating from Sage 100 Classic to Sage 100cloud.
NOTE: statements about product development initiatives and new features may be modified, delayed, or abandoned without prior notice and before final release.
