Sage 100cloud 2020: What’s New
Sage has announced the release of Sage 100 and Sage 100cloud 2020. Below we dive into a few of the top new features included in these latest versions.
Fully Integrated Enhancements
Here are some of the most popular, fully integrated enhancements that are carried throughout multiple modules:
eInvoicing with Paya Connect combines click-to-pay functionality with a customer self-service payment portal, helping you save time through payment automation. Your customers can use the payment link to make online credit card and ACH payments. If you’re using Paperless Office for invoicing, the invoice PDF is attached to the email. After customers make online payments, you can easily import them into Cash Receipts Entry.
There are two ways to enable eInvoicing for your customers:
- To enable the feature for an individual customer, select the eInvoice Payments check box on the Additional tab in Customer Maintenance.
- To enable the feature for a range of customers, use the Global Customer Field Change utility.
Note: this feature is only available for Sage 100cloud and requires a merchant account with Paya (formerly Sage Payment Solutions).
If you’ve ever processed a check run with the wrong information, you already know how much time and manual effort can be required to walk it back. But now, the new Reverse Check Run Utility in Accounts Payable automates the reversal of checks or electronic payments created via the Check Printing and Electronic Payment Menu.
Expiration dates can now be added for items with lot or serial numbers when they are received into inventory or produced through Bill of Materials.
An important feature for manufacturers and distributors who deal with food & beverage, chemicals, and medical equipment, this represents the first phase of the Sage 100cloud lot / serial journey with lot & serial tracking features coming soon in a future release.
A variety of updates in Sage 100 2020 have been applied to the Job Cost module as follows:
