SAGE 100 2017 NEW FEATURES
Sage 100 2017 was released in late October of 2016. The new upgrade introduces the ability to collect customer payments using ACH, enhanced credit card verification for corporate purchases, improved lookup and search features, and many other improvements throughout the software. Here are some of the new features:
Customer Payment Processing: You can now offer your customers the ability to pay invoices electronically using new ACH (Automated Clearing House) payment processing in A/R Invoice Data Entry, Cash Receipts Entry, Repetitive Invoice Entry, Sales Order Entry, and S/O Invoice Data Entry. ACH can process payments much faster, and also eliminates credit card payments fees. Sage 100 2017 has added another layer of security to processing credit cards with enhanced verification for corporate cards and purchase cards.
Improved Lookups and Searches: With enhanced auto‐complete, your search criteria is compared with all words within the searched fields, not just the beginning of the text as it functioned in previous versions. As an example, if you have a customer named Westwood Trailers and a customer named Blue Western, typing “West” in the Customer No. field results in a list that includes both customers. In addition, a Full Text option has been added to the Search list in Lookup windows. With this option, your search criteria is compared with the data in all columns available in the Lookup window. Lastly, you can now search for fields that do not contain a value (empty fields) in Lookup windows. After selecting a field from the Search list, select Is Empty from the operand list, then click Find.
Sage Intelligence: new reporting templates are available for download giving users a greater selection of reporting options.
User Experience: Sage 100 2017 is now much more user-friendly and easier to navigate with improvements to reporting fonts, file‐based navigation, and ribbon‐style search capabilities.
