For Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud

junction box 3482687 1920
The new Sage Production Management is comprised of features designed to replace the legacy Work Order and Material Requirements Planning (MPR) modules currently in Sage 100. Here’s a closer look at this new functionality for manufacturers.


Sage Production Management Capabilities

At a high level, Sage Production Management is a suite of manufacturing capabilities built on the Sage Business Object framework (aka “Business Framework”). That means you get a modernized platform capable of all the conveniences you’ve become accustomed to in other modules like primary and secondary data entry grids, resizable windows, batch data entry, right-click context menus, grid export to Excel, custom scripting, and so much more.

CREATING A COPY COMPANY FOR ARCHIVE/BACKUP

Written by Todd Martin on .

At year end, it’s useful to create an archive company using the Copy Company feature. This provides a readily accessible copy (and backup) of the current year’s data even after you perform year end processing in your live company.
To make a copy company, go to:

Library Master > Main Menu > Company Maintenance

  1. Create a new company code and company name (description) that’s easy to identify and distinguish from the live/active company that you’re copying.

  2. Click the Copy button and enter the Company Code of your current year live (or “Source”) company.

  3. Select the modules you want to copy to your archive company. To create a complete archive/backup, you’ll want to copy all modules. Click Proceed. Once the process is finished, click Accept.

For good measure, you might run a trial balance in each module and do a quick spot check to make sure all the data that came over is balanced and accurate.

SAGECRM.COM PRODUCT TO BE RETIRED

Written by Todd Martin on .

In a recent communication from Sage, the company stated that they reviewed their CRM portfolio and have decided to retire the SageCRM.com hosted/cloud product as of August 31, 2019.

While technical support will continue to be available through August 31st, after that date you will no longer be able to access SageCRM.com.

In a statement, Sage said the decision will enable the company to focus time and resources more efficiently.

Sage CRM On-Premises NOT Affected


The on-premises version of Sage CRM that integrates with your Sage 100 or Sage 100cloud software is not affected. The only product that is being retired is SageCRM.com which Sage hosted themselves on behalf of customers.

Planning for Retirement

If you’re currently using SageCRM.com, it’s recommended that you plan ahead and start your transition before August 31, 2019. Specifically, Sage recommends that you backup your database and download a copy to a separate location. Instructions for downloading your database can be found here.

Contact us to plan ahead or discuss transition options which can include migrating your data from SageCRM.com to the Sage CRM On-Premises product.
