Sage 100 (now Sage 100cloud, and formerly MAS 90/MAS 200) is built around a robust core accounting software platform; however, the right integrations and add-on solutions will extend your ERP’s vertical functionality beyond basic financials and give you a true end-to-end enterprise system. As a top Sage partner, SWK Technologies will help you discover and implement the right modules and external solutions that will empower you to capture the best value from your Sage ERP investment.
A diverse ecosystem of independent software vendors (ISVs) and service providers allows Sage 100cloud (formerly Sage 100c) users to choose from a wide variety of enhancements. This includes SWK, as we provide custom development and hand-crafted solutions built for your needs that cover areas such as cybersecurity, application and infrastructure hosting, human capital management (HCM) and business technology consulting. With access to the same education and programming tools as Sage’s own developers and deep familiarity with the product’s software architecture, SWK will ensure that your Sage 100 technology stack is optimized for true ROI.
Here are the top 12 Sage 100 integrations and external solutions to augment your implementation:
1. Hosting Sage ERP Applications in the Cloud
SWK’s application and infrastructure hosting solutions comprise our comprehensive and secure cloud service, which allows you to load your software and IT assets from a protected digital environment. SWK’s team of engineers will manage the hardware and network maintenance, while your critical data remains under your control. The world’s first Smart SOC (security operations center) will also be supervising the cybersecurity of your application environment, watching for hacker footprints and ensuring that no trace of malware will spread within your system.
Sage 100 users can shed the burden of server upkeep and expensive upgrades by hosting their ERP in the cloud, as SWK customer Icon Foods did. An Oregon-based food additive manufacturer, Icon Foods realized while migrating to Sage 100cloud from QuickBooks that they would need to invest in new hardware to fully handle the implementation. Icon decided to adopt a hybrid cloud infrastructure that allows them to leverage both existing onsite resources and SWK’s remote servers.
2. AvidXchange AP Automation Software
AvidXchange is an accounts payable (AP) and payment automation solution delivered as SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). When integrated with Sage 100cloud, users can take advantage of the modern ERP’s cloud connectivity to quickly and seamlessly implement this application. SWK has also developed our own customized AP integration for Sage 100 and AvidXchange, which enhances the purchase order and transaction capabilities in both and enables users to process complex related procedures much more easily.
3. Avalara Sales Tax Automation Software for Economic Nexus

8. Sage HRMS and HCM Consulting by SWK

Built from the legacy Sage Abra, the customizable HRMS solution allows for easier data migration to your Sage ERP when working with a knowledgeable partner such as SWK Technologies. With software End of Life (EOL) for Abra fast approaching, users still stuck on the outdated version should consider making the move to Sage HRMS ASAP with SWK’s help.
For those unsure if another Sage application is the best fit, or even if they want to migrate at all, SWK can still help.
