A collection of enhancements requested by Sage Authorized Partners / Resellers including a new payments tab for Invoice History Inquiry (similar to the existing payments tab in Accounts Payable), a ‘Net Balance’ button for A/P Invoice Data Entry, and a wide collection of long-awaited Visual Integrator improvements.
Continued “phase 2” enhancement of lot and serial number traceability that began in a previous release. Continued development in this area is a welcomed enhancement particularly for the Food and Beverage industry as well as companies aiming for just in time inventory.
Sage Production Management
Continued enhancements with emphasis on simplifying workflow and options related to creating work tickets from sales orders. In addition, scheduled for a release in early to mid-2021 is functionality for Projected Demand in IRP which considers lead time to calculate Work Ticket dates and follows inventory period end and purging rules.
See our in-depth article on Sage Production Management for full details about this relatively new add-on suite for Sage 100cloud.
It’s worth pointing out that many of the new features mentioned are exclusive to the Sage 100cloud subscription platform. If you’re still running the “classic” Sage 100 product, some of the new features in upcoming releases may not be available to you.
