Important Changes to Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Credit Card Processing powered by PC Charge

Written by Chris Bishop on .

As announced in the current Product Roadmap posted on the Partner File Center, Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 5.0 will contain a new integration with Sage Exchange. Sage Payment Solutions created this powerful integration tool to streamline credit card processing across the entire Sage product portfolio. As part of this implementation, credit card numbers will no longer be stored within Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200. Instead they will be stored in the Sage Exchange Vault.

With the introduction of Sage Exchange in Version 5.0, the integration to PC Charge Payment Server will no longer function because it requires that credit card numbers be stored within the ERP system. Sage Payment Solutions will be the only supported credit card processor for the Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 product line.

Updated Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Roadmap

Written by Chris Bishop on .

An updated Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Roadmap is now available to provide you with an overview of 4.5, the first 4.5 product update, SageCRM 7.1, Sage ERP MAS Intelligence, and Sage ERP MAS 90 Online, along with highlights of planned future enhancements beyond the 4.5 release. Development on 5.0 is well underway as well as the first 4.5 product update. Product Update 1 for 4.5 is currently targeted to be available the end of October, around the same time that Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 customers will begin receiving their Auto-Delivery package with information on how to download their copy of 4.5. Encourage customers to start scheduling their upgrades using the tremendous value packed in this exciting release. 4.5 includes a FREE user and server license of SageCRM 7.1, new reporting tree features, and the ability to move to Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL, in additional to all the enhancements in Sales Order, Payroll, Accounts Receivable, and Purchase Order. 4.5 also introduces the ability to conveniently download 4.5 whenever you and your customers are ready to start their upgrade. Many older releases retired September 30, 2011, and the Supported Versions document has been updated to reflect both the recent 4.5 and 7.4 releases as well as the retirements.

Sage MAS 90 and 200 ERP Product Update 3 (4.40.0.03)

Written by Todd Martin on .

Now available is Product Update (PU) 3 for Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 released from sage on September 27th 2010. New customer-requested features streamline workflows and solve Bank Reconciliation pain points. One of the main reasons for most users to update to this PU is to have Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 4.4 compatible with Microsoft Office 2010. The remaining enhancements are to Bank Reconciliation.

This PU has had a few issues with the release. There have been a few bugs reported with this release and MBA recomend waiting until the next PU release, unless the need for Microsoft Office 2010 compatibility is requried. Sage has already released fixes for most of the issues that were found after the PU 3 release.

Smaller is better, when it comes to email

Written by Todd Martin on .

Most users of email take for granted how easy it is to send email. Email has become a staple in everyday life. Not only are we using email at work but now we are using email at home and we have come to depend on it. Email is no longer just text being sent. We want to share more than just words. We want to attach documents and pictures. Before you know it an email that was very small 100KB now becomes 8MB and is on its way through the Internet. Or so you thought!

Most email providers will cap email size due to the resources used when sending, receiving and storing email. Typical caps on email could be from 2mb to 10 mb with an average of 6-8 mb for most ISPs. Image trying to carry into your house 100 grocery bags full of food at one time. They are too many bags and they weigh too much to carry at one time. Email is the same way. Having an email too large would keep the system from performing hence the reason ISP and email providers will cap email size.
