Announcing Lower Flat Fee Setup Cost!

We're excited to announce a new, lower setup fee for Sage Inventory Advisor which is now a flat $2,250 - regardless of whether you're tracking 5 or 500,000 items.

The setup fee for Sage Inventory Advisor previously ranged from $2,200 to $9,000, depending on the number of SKULs (Stock Keeping Units by Location). As you can see, the new flat fee is on the low end of that range!

Preview of Sage 100 ERP Version 2014

Written by Todd Martin on .

Sage recently published a pre-release guide for Sage 100 ERP Version 2014 which provides a sneak peek at all the new features and enhancements expected. Let's take a closer look at this upcoming new release scheduled for auto-delivery download to existing customers in February or March.

Even Faster and Easier to Use

Sage 100 ERP 2014 will be packed with a collection of product-wide enhancements that make the software easier to use and make you more productive. Many of the improvements were submitted by customers like you at the Sage 100 Ideas Website including the new Auto-complete feature that helps you quickly locate customer, vendor, and item records. Simply begin typing a name or item description and Auto-complete will populate a list of closely related matches that you can select.

A new Invoice List button allows for quick invoice lookup in Accounts Payable Invoice Data Entry, Repetitive Invoice Entry, and Accounts Receivable Repetitive Invoice Data Entry. Using the new flashlight icon you can easily search for invoices without having to select a customer first.

Other notable product-wide enhancements include:

Sage Product Reirement Schedule

Written by Todd Martin on .

Sage is encouraging all customers to be current on their software. Being current helps companies to utilize the current operating systems like Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft Server 2008. Current software will have updates and bug fixes available to customers on subscription. Updates and bug fixes keep customers from losing productivity by not forcing them to create workarounds and troubleshoot issues that are already fixed in the update.  Sage's plan is to provide customers with plenty of notice to ensure that customers continue to run their business on a supported version and get the most value from their investment.

Sage Discontinues Sale of StarShip Products

Written by Todd Martin on .

Sage announced that as of March 31, 2011, that they will no longer sell V-Technologies' StarShip Parcel and StarShip Freight products for Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, Sage ERP MAS 500, Sage BusinessWorks Accounting, or Sage PFW ERP. This does not mean that you have to change to a different product, if you are currently using StarShip. All this is saying is that Sagewill no longer Sell the product as a Endorsed Solution. Sage will not continue to develop the link and support of the StarShip Link will discontinue over time.

Sage will continue to support the StarShip Link (developed by Sage) for on-plan customers who are on currently supported versions of Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200, and StarShip Parcel version 10.1.1 and earlier (per the Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Supported Versions document).
