Here are some of the top new features included in these latest versions.
Here are some of the top global enhancements that are carried throughout multiple modules:
Expanded Name Fields – several fields have been expanded from 30 to 50 characters including Customer Name, Customer Contact Name, Vendor Contact Name, Confirm To Name, and Requested by name.
International Address Support – to support international business, several fields have been modified to support international addresses for customers, vendors and contacts.
Multiple POs on a Single Receipt – similar to the existing multiple Sales Orders on One Invoice feature, you can now combine multiple POs into a single receipt.
Easier Excel Exports for List Boxes – A new ‘Export to Excel’ button allows you to export the contents of a list box to Microsoft Excel. This new button has been added for numerous list boxes throughout Sage 100.
New Reverse Check Run Utility
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.
Lot / Serial Expiration Dates
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.
Job Cost Updates
A variety of updates in Sage 100 2020 have been applied to the Job Cost module as follows:
Option for Expensing Work-In-Process Costs – A new ‘Recognize WIP when Billing % Complete Jobs’ field has been added to the Main tab in Job Cost Options. This field is available when the (Post to General Ledger) Work in Process check box is selected.
Actual % Complete Field – A new ‘Actual % Complete’ field has been added to various screens so that you can enter the job’s completion percentage when processing invoices for the job.
