ASP Web Applications accessing MAS 90

Written by Todd Martin on .

Sage MAS 90 ERP and Sage MAS 200 ERP have an e-Business application for users who wish to have an internet store for customers (B2B) and consumers (B2C). These are great, out of the box, applications if you want to keep your site simple and to the point. Most everything is configured through the accounting interface. HTML can be added in the descriptions to give the site a custom look without having to have a programmer develop your shopping cart. During the check out process it will charge the credit card with Sage payment services or PcCharge and all the transactions flow through the accounting system No import or export. It is really a great application but like I stated before it is a very basic, out of the box, solution.  It lacks in Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Suggestive Selling, Social Media Links, Tell a Friend/E-Mail info, PDF of page, Human Readable URLs, and many other features and functions that most of today’s commerce websites have.
