Third Party Solutions for Sage 100

Sage 100 is a solid product with years of stability, customer successes and enhancements. Like any software application, though, Sage 100 doesn’t address every need or requirement for every business. Sage 100 customers often look to fill the functional gaps with third party add-on solutions.

Sage has a vibrant third party solution community including products that are endorsed by Sage, ensuring that development, connectivity, testing and compatibility criteria meet, and exceed, Sage’s development standards.

So, here are the top 5 add-ons for Sage 100 as ranked by RKL eSolutions customer requests and installations.

Alerts & Workflow

Sage Alerts & Workflow monitors your most critical business conditions then automates the communication for awareness and resolution. For example, users can identify the triggers for an overdue invoice, disburse the notice within the organization and automate business rules for credit-hold assignment while prompting a credit analyst to review and take action. Relevant reports and business forms can also be distributed to managers, providing key analytics to support business-decisions.

One Software Solution

One Software Solution is the creative combination of three popular add-ons for Sage 100 into a single solution for manufacturing automation, warehouse automation and warehouse management. Features include multi-bin enhancements, barcoding management and warehouse technologies to automate inventory transactions. Automating inventory transactions is an effective and easy way for companies to eliminate errors and improve inventory accuracy in warehouse operations.

JobOps

JobOps develops manufacturing, field service & dispatch and purchasing solutions for discrete manufacturers and job shops. Through a partnership with Sage, JobOps Manufacturing capabilities are now delivered as Sage 100c Manufacturing modules. JobOps Field Service Dispatch is still available and offers service-based organizations the tools to manage contracts, cases, preventative maintenance and resources for mobile technicians.

Sage Intelligence

Sage Intelligence is a flexible report writing solution for financial and operational reporting requirements in addition to out-of-box report capabilities. With Sage Intelligence, users can extract data from Sage 100 into Microsoft Excel formats for advanced formula calculations, consolidation, reporting trees and groups. Sage Intelligence offers the ability to design custom reports and connect to external, non-Sage applications, too.

Starship

Starship is a popular Shipping Software solution for Sage 100 customers. Starship can be accessed stand-alone or from within Sage 100 Shipping Data Entry providing seamless integration for order entry, accounts receivable and customer service. Starship eliminates re-keying of shipping data and automatically creates invoices effectively and efficiently.

While these add-ons represent the most common requests we get from our Sage 100 customers, there are hundreds of other business applications available. The team at RKL eSolutions maintains a directory of carefully vetted, third party solution providers that we recommend to our customers.

Throughout the year, we host webinars to educate our customers about potential add-ons to address the most common business challenges our customers encounter. We also strive to offer our customers choices, when possible, of multiple solution providers.

If you have a specific requirement, contact your account manager or submit a request to sales@rklesolutions.com. We would be happy to explore your specific need and potential solutions to extend your Sage 100 investment.
