includes a collection of new features with an emphasis on addressing a few functional gaps in the
areas of Finance, Distribution, and Manufacturing. Here's a look at the most important changes.
Finance, Distribution, and Manufacturing Enhancements
Financial Management - budgets are now more flexible with up to 9 dimensions (up from the
previous max of 3), the ability to simulate the result of automated journal entries, enhanced
flexibility of reminders, and improved management of payments and discounts.
Sage Intelligence Reporting - integration of Sage Intelligence Reporting into Sage X3 Cloud (as the
core financial reporting solution) marks the first step in preparing for the future replacement of
the current financial data extraction tool.
Distribution - updates to the distribution suite include logistics workflow improvements
(shipments and carriers), lot traceability on subcontract orders, new multi-counting in inventory
that allows multiple people to count the same product, and a customer service calendar widget in
CRM with links that allow you to jump to the original documents with a click.
Manufacturing - the previous Update 9 delivered versioning for the product and BOM. Update 10
now incorporates versioning in routings. In addition, shop floor tracking improvements make it
even faster and easier to capture accurate labor and production costs.
Mobility - several improvements were made to the mobile interface with the primary objective of
giving more real-time visibility in secure mode and to reduce delays in decision-making. These
changes include leveraging native Windows 10 features like sharing, notifications, live tiles, barcode
scan, Cortana integration, and more. Mobile improvements also include management of
drafts (offline edits and synch), auto-fill templates, memos, and drill down/up on queries.
Platform Enhancements - support for multiple application servers (no single point of failure), easy
updates, derivate languages, API management, batch controller, Cloud provisioning improvements,
and RDS support for MS SQL 2014.
NOTE: Sage X3 Update 10 is available for cloud customers only. The next version and update for
Sage X3 on-premises customers is currently scheduled for February 2017.
