Sage Mas 90 and Mas 200 version 4.50.01 is now available, and with product update 01, existing users can upgrade to use the new 4.50 features. For Mas 200 only, version 4.50 can now run on a Microsoft SQL database platform. For both Mas 90 and Mas 200, application enhancements include:
Accounts Receivable has added the ability to bill National Accounts while keeping statistics on branches and subsidiaries.
Payroll has added 5 new deduction calculation methods, including calculation of deductions based on changes in the earnings line made during data entry. New features for importing payroll entries from popular time-tracking packages have also been added. New Benefit Accrual figures allow you to set minimum hours for accruing types of benefits.
Automatically Create Purchase Orders from Sales Orders. New features allow Purchase Orders to be created for not just drop-ship Sales Orders, but all Sales Orders based on specifications that you set. This is really helpful for companies that don’t purchase products until their customers order them.
Additional Pricing methods have been added to Sales Order system, including pricing by customer for each product line that will allow a company to set default price levels for each of their customers by product line. Discounts can now be offered by Total order quantity, quantity by Item Category, and for quantity by Product Line.
Assign lot and serial numbers during Sales Order entry. In addition to using lot and serial numbers to be tracked for potential recall of their products, this will also allow companies to reserve limited-quantity lots or serial numbers for their best customers or to match the product-lot previously shipped to a customer.
A new feature for default Split Commissions allows you to establish and maintain default Split Commissions between multiple salespeople for a customer that are invoked each time the customer is billed.
Version 4.5 includes a FREE user and server license of SageCRM 7.1 which allows you track communications with customers and prospects. The new eMarketing module for SageCRM will deliver all the power of e-marketing software directly through SageCRM for end-to-end e-marketing campaign management. It will enable users to execute high-quality, targeted email marketing and create drip marketing campaigns quickly and easily.
