Seven New DSD Enhancements
I’m proud to announce that DSD Business Systems has acquired seven new Sage 100 enhancements from Accounting Software Inc. We are very excited about these new feature-rich products, as they are a great fit for our catalog of enhancements. Below are the names, features, and benefits of each product:
1. Product Label Printing (SOPL S/O)
This product adds a new menu option, Product Label Printing, to the Sales Order Main menu. This new option allows the user to print product labels from sales order detail lines, using user-defined fields in Inventory Management and Sales Order to control the printing and the number of labels printed. Allowing product label printing from Sales Order Lines is a benefit to any distribution company that needs to have labels printed prior to item picking.
2. Change Batch (CICB)
Change Batch allows the user to quickly move an Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, or Sales Order invoice from one batch to another. Often a single invoice in a batch needs to be researched and changed, which requires that either the whole batch be delayed or that the individual invoice be deleted and recreated in another batch. With this new feature, that invoice can simply be moved to another batch, saving time and money!
3. Shipping Integration (SOSI)
Shipping Integration is designed to integrate your shipping software system with your Sage 100 Sales Order shipping system. It requires that the shipping software be able to export a delimited file for each shipment. The delimited file can then be read by Shipping Integration and information pulled into Sage 100. Many shipping systems, such as UPS Worldship or FedEx Shipping Manager, are able to read shipping information from Sage 100 orders to speed entry. UPS Worldship and FedEx Shipping Manager are both supported out of the box, but other shipping software packages can be easily integrated.
4. Company Consolidation (LMCC)
Company Consolidation allows users to combine data tables for multiple companies into one consolidated company to allow for consolidated reporting or to create a new operating company (for processing live transactions). Data tables from Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Common Information, General Ledger, Inventory Management, Job Cost, Purchase Order, Sales Order and Service Center modules are included in the consolidation. Source company data remains intact, providing users the ultimate flexibility for testing and correcting any data irregularities within the source companies before a final consolidation.
5. Farm Plan Interface (SOFP)
This product is created for companies that sell directly to farmers, and that use Farm Plan / John Deere Financial software. It will connect the Sage 100 system to Farm Plan seamlessly with the Farm Plan Interface. Completely streamline your data entry process by allowing this enhancement to communicate with Farm Plan directly from within your accounting software. Modifications to Accounts Receivable and Sales Order allow you to authorize these charges and capture the transactions during normal sales order processing.
6. Equipment Maintenance (EMEM)
The Equipment Maintenance Module keeps your company up to date with the equipment it takes to operate your business on a day-to-day basis. Equipment Maintenance allows you to track maintenance tasks and assign items to these tasks, while tracking technician’s labor and time to complete tasks. This product is ideal for manufacturing and distribution companies.
7. Service Center (SMSM)
The Service Center module keeps your company in touch with your customers, and with the products that you sell and service. Track warranties, return products, exchange items, and process repair orders. Automatically tracks items sold from your inventory so that when a repair is required, you can see when it entered your inventory, when it was sold, to whom it was sold, who the current end-user is, what warranties cover it, and what service has been performed in the past. Create Service Orders to process the item through your operation and accounting system. Print service order forms, service item labels, picking sheets, bar code labels, and shipping labels for each order in text or graphical format. You can charge for labor and track that labor by service technician. If repair parts are needed, you can search your inventory for the parts, select from any warehouse, and utilize the special pricing options set up in your Inventory Management system for that customer.
