Last week, we discussed what occurred in 2010 for Sage MAS 90/200. Here’s a preview of what’s coming in 2011.
Product Update 5
Product Update 5 for Version 4.4 is planned for March 2011, and will include some great usability features such as the ability to set a different background color for each company code and a multiple company aged invoice report for Accounts Payable.
Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL Version 4.5
In the second half of 2011, Sage will release the current Sage ERP MAS 200 product on the Microsoft SQL Server platform as an option for existing customers, combining SQL Server’s reliable, scalable, easy-to- manage, high performance database platform with the ease of use of Sage ERP MAS 200.
Flexible licensing options will allow customers to purchase SQL server licenses from Sage or use existing licenses they own. All modules that have been updated to the Business Framework™ will be available for the SQL version. The Business Framework allows the same programs that run on the Providex database to run under SQL, so the SQL Server version can always be current with the other versions of the software.
Version 4.5 Enhancements
Version 4.5 will include benefits for all customers, including the merging of the Extended Enterprise Suite with the core product line. All on-plan customers will receive a single- user copy of SageCRM, allowing them to try all the features and functionality of SageCRM.
A powerful collection of core usability features will be added in this release, such as: enhanced benefit accrual in Payroll; Lot/Serial Distribution Entry From Sales Order; and Customers with National Accounts.
Sage plans to retire support for the following Versions in 2011:
- Sage ERP MAS 200 SQL Edition – Version 3.7x will be retired June 1, 2011.
- Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200 Versions 4.0, 4.05, and 4.1 will be retired September 30, 2011.
