Customize your Sage 100cloud system to enhance your business productivity software with indispensable capabilities like user-defined- fields (UDFs) and user-defined tables (UDTs), graphical business financial reporting, and enhanced integration. Custom Office provides a suite of powerful and flexible tools so you can customize your system cost-effectively and upgrade-safe to work the way you do.
Customizer: Access, define and implement user-defined fields (UDFs) and user-defined tables (UDTs) easily without special programming skills. Custom Office enhancements allow you to program events to run with or without user interaction (clicking a button) in addition to the ability to add user-defined fields and additional buttons. Customizations done using Custom Office now survive upgrades throughout most of your system, including those in Inventory Management, Purchase Order, Bill of Materials, and Bar Code – no need to reapply them to a new release. For example, you can add expiration dates or other attributes for lot and serial items, and that information flows through the system.
MS Office Link: Integrate with Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook to easily create letters or messages to individual customers or vendors. Attach documents, graphics and scanned images to specific records in the product’s data files.
Facilitate seamless integration between Sage 100cloud data and other business applications. Visual Integrator can import from or export to any ODBC (open database connectivity)-compliant source, without the need for an intermediary data file such as ASCII delimited or Microsoft Excel. Establish import schedules to run automatically every day, hour or minute, or prescribe intervals of any length. Chain imports together so that an invoice import automatically follows a customer import. You can even instruct the program to run a script file automatically upon successful completion of an import. Run additional commands, scripts, or other functions based on three events: before job start, on job success, or on job failure. Subroutines can also be added before and after each record write, and before and after assigning data fields.
- Easily import to or export from a custom or vertical software package
- Maintain data integrity between programs
- Use validation logic to ensure import conforms to your established business rules
